HÖÖR BAROCK ENSEMBLE
”Devotion, artistry, spirit and knowledge”
– Toccata Early music magazine, Tyskland
Höör Barock Ensemble is one of Scandinavia’s top most celebrated baroque ensembles of today. In a short period of time the ensemble has played it´s way right into the ”Champion’s league” of early music groups.( Toccata Early music magazine).
What distinguishes their music is the lively rhetorics, impassioned interplay and great richness of tone. The individual instruments are given space and the collective expression lies in the dedication and virtuosity of each musician.
”The ensemble unites virtuosity with delicacy, and delicacy with robustness. A tingling of life and fancy.”
The ensemble has its base in the small town of Höör in the south of Sweden and consists of a handful of the most successful specialists of the baroque genre in the region.
The group arose in 2012 as ”ensemble in residence” in the yearly Summer festival, Höör Barockfestival and has since then even acquired its own independent existence.
The group has worked under the leadership of guest musicians such as the Polish violinist Aureliusz Golinski and the French organist Martin Gester. In 2014 they teamed up with Dan Laurin, recorder, and Anna Paradiso, harpsichord. Under Dan’s musical leadership they have made two recordings with the eminent record label BIS. These recordings offer all one could wish from pine-scented rococo sounds to virtuoso Italian delicacies and energetic contrapuntal sport!
”… this ensemble took me by storm!”
