Whether through the unique interpretation of rarely played works, improvisations and special arrangements or the interplay of different artistic disciplines; the Bremen Baroque Orchestra has set itself the goal of dissolving the boundaries between popular and serious music and making “early music” understandable and tangible for everyone. To this end, the ensemble has also developed its own music education programme, which has already included projects with numerous schools in and around Bremen since 2020.
In addition, the BBO established its own platform with the orchestra’s streaming channel, through which people around the world can experience the ensemble’s concerts in Bremen. The channel now has more than 31,000 subscribers, and internet users have viewed the interpretations well over six million times to date.
For its concerts, the Bremen Baroque Orchestra regularly wins renowned soloists, who in the past have included internationally renowned artists such as Ryo Terakado, Dorothee Oberlinger, Alfredo Bernardini, François Fernandez and Dmitry Sinkovsky.In the upcoming 23/24 season, the musicians will be on stage with Midori Seiler and Giovanni Solima, among others.

It would have to be […] a devil’s bargain if [the BBO] did not expose itself in the very near future as one of the most excellent special music ensembles that fill their repertoire in the sense of historical performance practice, not only in Germany and Europe, but worldwide.
