Winners of CIMA 2021!
Cohaere Ensemble was founded in 2019 in Katowice by three students of the Harpsichord and Historical Performance Practice Department. In February 2021, they welcomed a 4th member. Monika Hartmann (cello), Marta Korbel (violin), Marta Gawlas (traverso), Natalia Olczak (harpsichord) have a fresh approach to historically informed performance but do not ignore the rules written down centuries ago.The Ensemble captivated the Jury by their playing of high quality mixed with an sensitive and lively interpretation where the four members play in harmony. They also stood out by their eclectic and out of the ordinary personalities. Cohaere raised money via a crowdfunding to finance their trip to France to participate to the competition.They tell you about their experience!
In 2022, Cohaere becomes part of EEEMERGING+, european program of accompaniment for young baroque ensembles.
