Freiburger Barockchester

Passion, joy of playing, authenticity – these are the musical cornerstones of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra (FBO). For more than three decades, the FBO has been one of the world’s leading original sound ensembles, performing over 100 concerts a year in Germany and abroad.


The orchestra was founded by a group of graduates of the Freiburg University of Music with the aim of performing historically informed music of the Baroque and Classical periods. historically informed. International engagements soon followed and the FBO quickly advanced to become one of the most one of the most sought-after ensembles on the early music scene. This success is due to more than 130 recordings, some of them award-winning.


In addition to its own subscription series in Freiburg, Stuttgart and Berlin, the FBO performs in the world’s leading concert halls, including the Lincoln Center New York, the Elbphilharmonie, the Musikverein Vienna and the Philharmonie de Paris. The FBO is also a popular guest at international festivals such as the Salzburg Festival, the Rheingau Music Festival and the Gstaad Menuhin Festival.

In the spirit of historically informed performance practice, the FBO usually performs without a conductor. For selected programs, e.g. for opera productions or romantic symphonies, the orchestra works with renowned conductors such as Pablo Heras-Casado, René Jacobs and Sir Simon Rattle. The FBO has close musical friendships with Kristian Bezuidenhout, Isabelle Faust, Dorothee Mields, Vox Luminis, the Zürcher Sing-Akademie and the RIAS Kammerchor Berlin.


In the 2023/24 season, the orchestra will once again showcase its wide stylistic range. It will perform Charpentier’s Medée under Sir Simon Rattle at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin, Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with Philippe Jaroussky in France, Spain and Korea and works by Mendelssohn and Brahms at the Leipzig Bach Festival together with the Gaechinger Cantorey and Hans-Christoph Rademann.
