FiBO had already long harboured plans of an own small festival in Berlin, and now it comes true – with no less than four other orchestras! The Nordic Baroque Scene (NBS) co-operation network was created on the initiative of FiBO, and its four member orchestras Barokkanerne from Norway, Concerto Copenhagen from Denmark, Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble from Sweden and FiBO together with the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra give a special concert on a summer’s evening in Berlin, performing a program with music ranging from movements from Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons played on Hardanger fiddle to Swedish folk music arranged for Baroque orchestra and nyckelharpa and from Antti Auvinen’s Andalusian Panzerwagen Jazz to Baroque music from the borderlands between Denmark and Germany.
The first event in the NBS co-operation was the Baroque singing competition Aria Borealis, a non-conventional singing competition that was held in Bodø in northern Norway in 2022 during the summer. The next competition will be arranged in Helsinki in 2025.
Duration: 4 h 30 min (incl. several intermissions)
