Finnish Baroque Orchestra
New commissions for period instruments, fresh interpretations of old repertoire, courageous and innovative working methods, unique concepts that engage a diverse audience – FiBO offers all this while being an influential force in the Nordic cultural scene.
Founded in 1989, the Finnish Baroque Orchestra has consolidated its position within the Finnish orchestral scene. Since its inception, the FiBO has collaborated with some of the foremost soloists and concertmasters and performed a wide-ranging repertoire. It generally focuses on baroque music, but often explores works from other periods from early baroque to early romanticism, too. The FiBO also plays contemporary music composed for period instruments and even commissioned several works itself.
Throughout its history, the FiBO has been a forerunner in the Finnish music scene. As the orchestra has developed, FiBO’s exciting performances, creative programming and innovative projects have caught the attention of numerous concert organisers, both in Finland and abroad.
