Bergen Barokk (Early Music Ensemble)

Founded: 1994 - Berrgen, Norway

Bergen Barokk was established in 1994 and is today one of Norway's leading early-music ensembles. The group has concertized and appeared in radio broadcasts in Europe, Russia and USA. Their recordings on Simax Classics, BIS, Bergen Digital Studio and Toccata Classics include German, English, Italian and French repertoire.

The ensemble has since 2006 worked with the complete recording of Georg Philipp Telemann’s cantata cycle

Harmonischer Gottes-Dienst, a collection of 72 cantatas for all Sundays, Passiontide and feast days of the liturgical year. The project is a collaboration between The Grieg Academy (University of Bergen) and Toccata Classics, London. “A Holberg Recital” is Bergen Barokk's 3 CDs series with music which is based on the Danish-Norwegian writer, essayist, philosopher, historian and playwright Ludvig Holberg’s musical taste and possible repertoire.

Bergen Barokk has collaborated with several ensembles through the recent years, some of them are Pratum Integrum (Moscow), Norwegian Soloists’ Choir and Barokksolistene (Norway). Bergen Barokk has performed in festivals like Festspillene i Bergen, Bach Festival of Philadelphia, Moscow Early Music Festival and Janácek International Music Festival (Czech Republic).

Bergen Barokk receives annual financial support from Arts Council Norway and Bergen City Council.
