Founded in the spring of 2009, the Musica Batavia trio has performed in the Netherlands, Germany and the United States to great praise: “Chamber music at its finest,” lauded the Osnabrücker Zeitung in 2012. Since 2011 Musica Batavia has also hosted an annual summer workshop for Baroque string, recorder and harpsichord players.
Bert Honig, Mimi Mitchell and Christina Edelen all regularly perform with a range of prominent ensembles, including The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Anima Eterna, Currende, In Stil Moderno, Brisk, the Amsterdam Bach Soloists and the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra.
All experienced soloists, chamber musicians and teachers, the members of Musica Batavia often combine concert tours with masterclasses. The ensemble’s repertoire consists of late Renaissance, Baroque and early Classical works and ranges from works by composers such as Bach and Telemann to less well-known figures.
