Our Story

The legend of the flute-playing satyr Marsyas is about passion, courage, talent, cruel revenge and a musical duel ...

Paula Pinn (recorders), María Carrasco Gil (baroque violin), Konstanze Waidosch (baroque cello, viola da gamba) and Sara Johnson Huidobro (harpsichord) also came together on the occasion of a com- petition: Without ever having played music together before, they decided without further ado in 2019 to participate as Marsyas Baroque in the German Music Competition (Deutscher Musikwettbewerb) of that year. They were successful and received a scholarship from the German Music Council (Deutscher Musikrat), combined with admission to the BAKJK (Bundesauswahl Konzerte Junger Künstler), and the special prize of the Ensemble Academy Freiburg. A short time later, the ensemble also won 1st prize at the renowned Biagio Marini Competition in Neuburg an der Donau.

Marsyas Baroque mainly plays virtuoso works of the 17th and 18th centuries on original sound instruments in their own arrangements, depending on the programme also with musical guests. The quartet performs throughout Germany and internationally, including concerts at numerous festivals such as the Thuringian Bach Weeks, the Schleswig Holstein Music Festival, the Bach Festival Leipzig, the Trigonale Festival and the Winter Festival in Schwetzingen.
