Helsinki Baroque Orchestra was founded in 1997.
Helsinki Baroque Orchestra was founded in 1997. Their programmes frequently include first modern performances of unpublished or reconstructed masterpieces, and also shed unexpected and often provocative new light on more familiar works. Their music-making has contributed to the ensemble’s reputation as major exponents of Baltic and German Baroque music. At home, groundbreaking productions of Handel’s and Haydn’s operas have earned the orchestra wide recognition. Since 2011, Helsinki Baroque Orchestra’s monthly series at the Helsinki Music Centre has reached a large, new and enthusiastic public. Equally at home in a more intimate setting, Helsinki Baroque Orchestra has launched its own midsummer festival in the idyllic setting of Janakkala’s medieval stone church. Helsinki Baroque’s sound has enthralled listeners from the Amsterdam Concertgebouw to Berlin’s Konzerthaus and the Cologne Philharmonie, and at major festivals such as Bremen, Rheingau, Washington, and Jerusalem. Recurring soloists and guest directors include Franco Fagioli, Isabelle Faust, Reinhard Goebel, Erich Höbarth, René Jacobs, Enrico Onofri, and Skip Sempé.
The festival receives government grants from:Arts Council Norway, City of Bergen and Hordaland county.
