About Freiburger Barockorchester

The Freiburger Barockorchester (Freiburg Baroque Orchestra) is a period-instrument ensemble focused on the authentic performance of Baroque music, though its repertoire extends into the Classical and Romantic periods as well. The Freiburger Barockorchester is mainly led by the concertmaster and often features members of the ensemble as soloists. The group earned Ensemble of the Year (Historical Instruments) at the 2012 Echo Klassik Awards. The Freiburger Barockorchester has remained active as a recording group, issuing several albums most years. Among these is a recording of Mozart's Youth Symphonies in 2019 and a cycle of Beethoven's piano concertos, with co-artistic director Kristian Bezuidenhout as the soloist and Pablo Heras-Casado conducting; the final volume of this set was released in 2022. That year, the Freiburger Barockorchester signed an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon.
