“Det finns alltså inget att gömma sig bakom. Allt hörs. Och det blir så naket och personligt det bara kan bli. Varje soloinsats är klar och innerlig, och samklangen mellan de tio sångarna är perfekt.” 

…skrev Carl Magnus Juliusson i GöteborgsPosten i april 2019 när Göteborg Baroque framförde ett av våra absoluta favoritverk: Buxtehudes Membra Jesu Nostri

Detta var en del av Göteborg Baroques jubileumssäsong som blev en stor succé! Ensemblen firade 15 år och vi fick vara med om världspremiären för det tidstrogna och unika instrumentet claviorganum finansierat av Sten A Olssons Stiftelse för Forskning och Kultur

Tack vare stiftelsens generösa donation har Göteborg Baroque också fått möjligheten att genomföra tre större konsert- och operasatsningar under ett antal år. Den första av dessa var Monteverdis opera L’ Orfeo som spelades på Röda Sten Konsthall 2018. Föreställningen fick recensioner som  “…i det absoluta toppskiktet av det svenska musiklivet” (Martin Nyström, Dagens Nyheter) och “Ett Monteverdispel i världsklass”(Magnus Haglund, GöteborgsPosten) 

Den andra produktionen var invigningskonserterna av claviorganum 2019 och det sista  sista projektet i denna jättesatsning får vi uppleva 2020: Bachs Matteuspassion i samarbete med Drottningholms Barockensemble.

”So there is nothing to hide behind. Everything is audible. And it becomes just as naked and personal as it can be. Every single solo is clear and devoted, and the consonance between the ten singers is perfect”

This quote from a review in GöteborgsPosten is from April 2019 when Göteborg Baroque performed Buxtehude: Membra Jesu Nostri, as a part of their 15thanniversary! 

Göteborg Baroque was founded in 2003 by the artistic director Magnus Kjellson who conducts the ensemble traditionally as a performing conductor from the keyboard of the organ or harpsichord. Göteborg Baroque makes its home and presents its general program series at the Christinae Church in Göteborg. The ensemble regularly performs important and well-known works from the Baroque period but also presents less famous musical pearls, often re-premiering works that have been ignored for hundreds of years.

Göteborg Baroque recently received a substantial donation from Sten A Olsson Foundation for Research and Culture that made it possible for the ensemble to let build a claviorganum; a combination instrument of a cembalo and an organ. In the middle of the 18th century, when Georg Friedrich Händel was at the pinnacle of his career, he led singers and instrumentalists from a similar instrument of his design. Funding was also made available for the ensemble to realize three musical dream projects, the first of which was a staged performance of Monteverdi’s Orfeo in 2018. The performance got reviews like: ”on the absolute musical top level in Sweden” and ”World-class performance of Monteverdi” 

The second project was the world premiere of the claviorganum in 2019 and the last will be several performances of the Bach Matthew passion in 202o in cooperation with the renowned Drottningholms Barockensemble.
