Orpheus’ Treasure Trove – Sounds over the Baltic Sea

The most beautiful seventeenth-century music in northern cities.

In a journey between northern music cities around the Baltic Sea, a selection of the finest seventeenth-century music is presented. Music and collections that we find here – for instance the Düben Collection in Uppsala, Sweden, and similar traces in Turku, Finland, and Tallinn, Estonia – testify about a rich and great musical exchance between cities around the Baltic Sea, already at this time in history. 

Orpheus Baroque welcomes Finnish Baroque soprano Kajsa Dahlbäck, an internationally renowned soloist specialised in older and modern music. She studied under Emma Kirkby, a legendary name of the early vocal music movement, and she is a founder of the Vasa Baroque festival in Ostrobothnia, Finland.  

Critically acclaimed ensemble Orpheus Baroque regularly works with prominent guests from the international Baroque music scene. Artistic director is the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic’s solo cellist, Johannes Rostamo, as well as concertmaster and Baroque violinist Elin Gabrielsson, a member, among other ensembles, of Italian Europa Galante.
