Freiburger Barockorchester

The Freiburg Baroque Orchestra looks back on a success story lasting almost thirty years and is a popular guest at the most important concert halls and opera houses. A glance at the ensemble’s concert calendar shows a diverse repertoire played at a variety of venues, ranging from the Baroque to the musical present and from Freiburg to the Far East. The Freiburgers’ artistic credo, however, remains unchanged: the creative curiosity of each of them, with the intention of playing a composition in as lively and as expressive a manner as possible.

Under the artistic directorship of Gottfried von der Goltz and Kristian Bezuidenhout, and under the baton of selected conductors, the FBO presents it-self with about one hundred performances per year in a variety of formations from chamber to opera orchestra: a self-administrated ensemble with its own subscription concerts at Freiburg’s Concert Hall, Stuttgart’s Liederhalle, and Berlin’s Philharmonie and with tours all over the world.

Andreas Richter Cultural Consulting represents the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra in Asia, Great Britain, Germany and neighboring countries on request.
