La Folia – this term of the baroque era focusses on wildness, fury, jollity and generally on an artistic attitude of liberality and excessive creativity.

Since their foundation in 2007 the La Folia Barockorchester vitalises on period instruments the international music scene. Whether in a chamber music instrumentation or with baroque opulence, whether with instrumental music or together with vocal soloist – the aspiring young orchestra under the direction of the violinist Robin Peter Müller stands for energetic and overwhelming interpretations of the music from the 17th and 18th century. Historically informed the musicians are looking for opportunities to transfer the emotions and contents of the past centuries into contemporary interpretations which have thrilled both audience and critics alike.

The ensemble cooperates regularly with renowned instrumentalists and singers like Hille Perl, the Vienna Boys’ Choir, Regula Mühlemann, Mahan Esfahani and Jan Vogler, Dorothee Oberlinger, Dorothee Mields, Anna Prohaska, Maurice Steger and Stefan Temmingh.

Founder and director Robin Peter Müller, born in Dresden, is one of the most sought-after musicians of his generation performing on period as well as on modern violin.Within a short period he led La Folia Barockorchestra to international reputation.
