Sunday 9 February 2020 16.00Ends approximately 18.00
Since the formation of Orpheus Baroque in 2015 by Baroque-loving members of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, the ensemble has also developed into an important meeting place for some of Sweden’s leading Baroque musicians.
The ensemble plays period instruments and since it was founded, violinist Elin Gabrielsson (member of, among other things, Italian Europa Galante) has served as concertmaster and cellist Johannes Rostamo (solo cellist for the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra) has served as artistic director.
Concerts with Orpheus Baroque often feature guest performances by top international musicians in early music. The ensemble has been led by Manfredo Kramer, Dan Laurin, Peter Spissky and Luca Guglielmi. At this concert, Orpheus Baroque will be led by Italian oboe virtuoso Alfredo Bernardini, in a programme with a focus on the Saxon capital’s musical heyday.
We will hear music by Jan Dismas Zelenka, Johann Georg Pisendel, Johann David Heinichen, Antonio Lotti, Antonín Reichenauer and Francesco Maria Veracini.
