Orpheus Baroque – Queen Christina here and there

In the footsteps of the figure who shaped cultural life both in Stockholm and in Rome.

Queen Christina made a strong mark on the cultural life of both 17th-century Stockholm and her new home city of Rome – after abdicating the throne and converting to Catholicism. Orpheus Baroque follows in her footsteps with music by Gustav Düben the elder, who was the court kapellmeister in Stockholm and a significant figure in the city's musical life, as well as French and Italian greats such as Lully, Carissimi, Stradella, and Corelli.

Orpheus Baroque Stockholm primarily consists of members of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. In just under ten years, the ensemble has become a dynamic and creative meeting place not only for philharmonic musicians with expertise in early music but also for many other leading baroque musicians in Sweden. The artistic directors are Johannes Rostamo, solo cellist of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, and Elin Gabrielsson, the concertmaster and baroque violinist who is also a member of the Italian ensemble Europa Galante.

Orpheus Baroque's highly popular concerts feature thematic programs and collaborations with invited top musicians from the international baroque music scene. This concert is led by the French-Italian baroque violinist Emmanuel Resche-Caserta.
