The Amalfi Salon Orchestra 2007

The Amalfi Salon Orchestra was founded by violinist Thomas Bauer. The ensemble is characterized by its arrangements for music from baroque to the 1960s. The first CD was named “You go through my dreams.”

The musicians´ first China tour in 2007 took them to many cities, among them the famous silk city Hangzhou. The orchestra sound creates a dreamful world that easily appealed to the Chinese audiences. Enthusiastic applause when on stages and in gala shows displayed how orchestra and tenor Volker Thies charmed the listeners.

Having had the chance to celebrate the Chinese Moon Festival in an ancient temple gave a wonderful experience of how Chinese people try to preserve their traditions.
