About the Group
Das Neue Mannheimer Orchester (DNMO) was established in late 2016 in The Hague by fortepianist Anders Muskens and harpsichordist Beniamino Paginini with the aim of recapturing the spirit of music from the period of the original Mannheim Court Orchestra. As an early music ensemble, the DNMO plays on period instruments using historically informed techniques. It is made up of students of the Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag and the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. The orchestra is a highly international group, featuring talents from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Argentina, Australia, Canada, Mexico, and the United States. The ensemble consists of a main orchestra as well as a Harmoniemusik band, or period wind band.
