Discover why the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra has been nominated for the 2018 Gramophone Orchestra of the Year Award

Gramophone Orchestra of the Year

Gramophone Orchestra of the Year

Whether playing Handel’s Concerti a due cori with its regular directors Gottfried von der Goltz and Petra Müllejans and displaying wonderful assurance, or giving Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto a delicious silvery glint in the company of Isabelle Faust and Pablo Heras-Casado or adding a foundation of rich, glowing warmth to Mozart’s Requiem under the direction of René Jacobs, the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra are one of Europe’s most stylish – and flexible. Their move into music of the middle of the 19th century has been a gloriously ear-opening experience – fire and ice fused to create playing of real character, alert yet also majestic and hugely impressive.
