Barokkanerne – Norwegian Baroque Ensemble, based in Oslo, is a result of a merge between Barokkanerne and Norwegian Baroque Orchestra. Both ensembles made their debuts in the late 1980s and have since been leading early music ensembles in Norway. 

They have appeared at numerous festivals throughout Europe, in recent years at Tage Alter Musik Regensburg, Stockholm Early Music Festival and Bergen International Music Festival. The ensemble is now a part of a classical concert series in Oslo which also includes the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra and Oslo Quartet Series.

The merged ensembles have both been involved in a number of productions for Norwegian Radio and Television (NRK) and their collective CD-productions are numerous.

From spring 2023, the Norwegian lutenist, Jadran Duncumb, has been chosen as a new artistic leader of Barokkanerne. Jadran Duncumb has an active international career as a soloist and chamber musician, and is planning new exciting concert programmes and recordings with the ensemble for the years to come.

Barokkanerne collaborates regularly with outstanding international performers as guest leaders and soloists. The unique contributions of musicians such as Kati Debretzeni, Andrew Lawrence- King, Alfredo Bernardini, Carlos Mena and Kristian Bezuidenhout, are genuinely appreciated by the ensemble and audiences alike.

    This performance is right up there amongst the best I have heard!
