The Leipzig Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1971 by members of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra who were, in addition to playing larger-scale symphonic and operatic repertory, striving for the experience of performance practice on a more individual level. Morten Schuldt-Jensen, artistic director since 2000, has formed a very flexible ensemble with a very personal style that suits the present time. Their interest in rhetorical detail, the different colours to be achieved by even simple chords and a dynamic force deriving from the composition’s structure has led them to a unique intensity of sound that appears not only in well-known repertoire but in some more unusual works recorded by the orchestra. They seek to perform compositions on modern instruments with extra care, combining the technical possibilities of modern instruments with the latest insights of performance practice from baroque music to the present.

The Leipzig Chamber Orchestra with its conductor Morten Schuldt-Jensen has toured Denmark, Spain, Korea, and Japan, and appeared at the Rheingau and Schleswig-Holstein Music Festivals. Together with the Immortal Bach Ensemble (formerly GewandhausKammerchor) they have made some remarkable recordings including all the Masses by Franz Schubert.
