Concerto Copenhagen (CoCo) played its first concerts in 1991 and has since developed into one of Scandinavia’s leading orchestra in Early Music – Baroque, Classical and Early Romantic.
With artistic director, conductor, and harpsichordist, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, at the helm, CoCo has become synonymous with a special, methodological approach to working with historical material. CoCo unites artistic authenticity and innovation – through original and uncompromising interpretations, the music is given new life and renewed relevance to a modern audience.
Since 1999, the collaboration between CoCo and Lars Ulrik Mortensen has led to an exciting artistic and musical journey – appreciated and praised by audiences and critics around the world. With a unique repertoire that combines well-known European music with lesser-known works of Scandinavian origin as well as new music, CoCo marked its 30th anniversary in 2021.
In 2022 CoCo was DR P2 Artist of the Year.
