Barokkfest Early Music Festival 2018

Barokkfest Early Music Festival 2018

The Barokkfest festival is the leading festival for baroque music in Norway. The festival stages concerts of historical music in the unique historical buildings in the medieval and 18th century city of Trondheim. The festival attracts a large audience from Norway and abroad and concerts from the festival appears regularly on Norwegian radio broadcast. Barokkfest has hosted many of the world leading artists of today’s international scene of baroque music.

The 2018 edition of the Barokkfest festival highlights the theme of Triumph. The programme proposed by the Spanish group Recóndita Armonía fits particularly well with this general layout of the 2018 edition of the festival. The festival will, in addition to the group Recóndita Armonía, also present a number of international and Norwegian world class artists.

AC/E supports the programme “Fuego al mondo” with the Spanish ensemble Recóndita Armonía. The programme presents virtuoso and exuberant music for viola da gamba, tenor voice and basso-continuo accompaniment from the Latin part of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe. The programme is a genuine presentation of the vitality of the baroque repertoire of Spain and Southern Europe.

The programme will be performed at the 2018 edition of the Barokkfest festival. The festival will take the program on tour to other venues in Norway. The tour will take the programme to two other major Norwegian programmers of classical music, the “Northern Lights Festival” in Tromsø and the Ladegården early music concert series in Oslo.

The “Northen Lights Festival” in Tromsø is one of the leading Norwegian music festivals and is held every year during winter time in the city of Tromsø, one of the northernmost university cities in the world. The Ladegården concert series are held in one of the most ancient and important buildings in Oslo, the capital of Norway. The series proposes year round concerts, mainly of early music and baroque music.
