About Us



Since its formation in 2015, Orpheus Baroque Stockholm has grown into an important part of the musical offering, serving as a meeting place for philharmonic musicians and for Sweden’s foremost Baroque musicians.

Through its own concert series in the Grünewald Hall, the ensemble has developed into a dynamic and creative meeting place for members of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra with expertise in early music, as well as many of Sweden's leading freelance baroque musicians. The ensemble works to make the profane musical treasure during the period 1600 - 1850 available with playing on period instruments and a historically informed playing style.

Orpheus Baroque has also profiled itself as an ensemble by inviting Swedish and internationally leading musicians in early music as guest leaders. Leaders like Francesco CortiLorenzo Coppola, Alfredo Bernardini, Manfredo Kraemer, Dan Laurin, Kreeta-Maria Kentala, Peter Spissky, Luca Guglielmi, Göran Karlsson and Mariangiola Martello as well as soloists like Anders J. Dahlin, Maria Keohane, Annastina Malm, Marianne Beate Kielland, Kristina Hammarström and Karl-Magnus Fredriksson collaborated with the ensemble.

The group's debut CD with music by JS Bach and CPE Bach was released on Alba Records 2020, praised by critics and nominated for a Grammy award in the category "Classic of the Year".

Artistic directors for Orpheus Baroque are concertmaster Elin Gabrielsson and cellist Johannes Rostamo.

Carl Milles 

Orpheus' well

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.
