The Bremer Barockorchester was founded in 2015 and performs under the artistic direction of the Colombian cellist Néstor Fabián Cortés Garzón. Consisting purely of specialists in historical performance practice, the ensemble dedicate themselves to the distinct specifications of the aesthetics of baroque and classical orchestral repertoire enriched with their own unique flair.
The press has praised the Bremer Barockorchester, stating:
The orchestra […] launched passionate fireworks of joie de vivre on the stage, as well as a soft musical cushion of sound… During all the Allegro parts of this concert one had the impression that the [BBO] “rocked” the Kurfürstensaal. The groove that the baroque music displayed here was so strong that the audience was immediately carried away. For this reason, they should have actually been called a “Baroque band” instead of a “Baroque orchestra”.
Numerous respected artists such as Ryo Terakado, Midori Seiler, Stéphanie Paulet, Johannes Pramsohler, Dorothee Oberlinger, Dmitry Sinkovsky and Alfredo Bernardini have collaborated with the Bremer Barockorchester. The ensemble performs nationally and internationally.
With their live recordings, the BBO is conquering the world of music streaming. The ensemble’s video channel has more than 14,000 subscribers with views over three million times worldwide.
In the autumn of 2020 their debut album “BACH to the Roots” was released, which already has been nominated for the “International Classical Music Award 2021”.
