FBO AND RENÉ JACOBS PERFORM IN ASIA
“The music was glowing, crisp and, when called for, impetuous and fiery.”
(The New York Times about “Idomeneo” in New York in August 2016)
The Freiburger Baroque Orchestra (FBO) enriches the international music scene for 30 years. Always looking out for new ways in artistic questions, the FBO counts as one of the most important pioneers of the European orchestral world. René Jacobs, one of its most important partners, conducts Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro” in concert version in Seoul, Shanghai and at Esterházy Palace in Eisenstadt. The opera is a cornerstone of the repertoire offering an unknown perfection between music and words. When first performed, the audience was so enthusiastic that almost every aria had to be repeated. Famous characters will be performed by Mr. Jacobs’ favorite soloists.
