There is barely a festival or concert series in Germany and throughout Europe, where the United Continuo Ensemble (UCE) hasn't appeared since its foundation in 1995. The viola da gamba player Jörg Meder has gathered together a team of leading basso continuo specialists. In variable constellations, they convey baroque jollity, their own fascination for improvisation, and pure pleasure. The audience's enthusiasm speaks for itself. Creative, interactive programmes with singers, dancers and actors, and even complete baroque operas, have long been the United Continuo Ensemble's recipe for success.
