Orpheus Barockensemble
Lorenzo CoppolaKlarinette
Alf HörbergKlarinette

The chalumeau is the predecessor to today’s clarinet and was common in the Baroque era. Pieces composed for the instrument are often performed on modern clarinets, but here, we will hear the music as it was intended to sound. In this music, we move through the 18th century stylistic borderland between baroque and classisicm, with Georg Philipp Telemann and Wilhelm Friedemann Bach as typical exemples of this transitional period. 

The soloists in Telemann’s Concerto for Two Chalumeaux are the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s clarinettist Alf Hörberg and Lorenzo Coppola, who will also lead Orpheus Baroque at this concert. We will also hear music by Bach’s son, Wilhelm Friedemann: the dazzling Sinfonia, music at the border of Baroque and early Classicism, and Haydn’s elegant Symphony No. 53, often called L’imperiale.

Lorenzo Coppola is a European authority on Baroque music and has performed with the most prominent ensembles with a focus on older repertoires, including Les Arts Florissants, Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century and the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra. Alf Hörberg is fascinated with period music and was a member for many years of the world-renowned Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century in Amsterdam, led by Frans Brüggen. 

Since its formation in 2015, Orpheus Baroque Stockholm has grown into an important part of the capital city’s music offering, serving as a meeting place for philharmonic musicians and some of Sweden’s foremost freelance Baroque musicians.

The critically acclaimed ensemble collaborates with guest conductors such as Alfredo Bernardini, Dan Laurin, Peter Spissky, Luca Guglielmi, Göran Karlsson and Mariangiola Martello, and soloists such as Anders J. Dahlin and Kristina Hammarström. The artistic directors are the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s solo cellist Johannes Rostamo, and concertmaster and Baroque violinist Elin Gabrielsson.
