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 critically acclaimed ensemble collaborates with guest conductors such as Alfredo Bernardini, Manfredo Kraemer, Dan Laurin, Peter Spissky, Luca Guglielmi, Göran Karlsson and Mariangiola Martello, as well as soloists such as Anders J. Dahlin and Kristina Hammarström.
Orpheus Baroque plays on period instruments and since the Ensemble was founded, violinist Elin Gabrielsson has served as concertmaster and cellist Johannes Rostamo as artistic director.
The Orfeus Baroque Ensemble plays on period instruments and is based in the beautiful Grünewald Hall in Stockholm's Concert Hall.
The Orpheus Baroque Ensemble is named after Carl Mille's statue Orpheus' well (Orfeusbrunnen), located outside the The Stockholm Concert Hall's entrance on Hötorget in Stockholm. Orpheus is portrayed in Greek mythology as a singer and musician of rank. In the fountain in front of the Stockholm Concert Hall, he descends into the realm of death to try to raise the dead with his lyrical play and retrieve his beloved Eurydice. One of the inhabitants of the death empire has had to borrow the composer Beethoven's features.
