Barokksolistene will be travelling all around Europe this autumn, giving concerts in beautiful castles and monasteries in Germany, the one and only Shakespeare’s Globe in London and a visit to the Vienna Musikverein.
No place more important than the other, though. Our aim is to meet you, whether you come and see us in Åmotgård, Gjøvik, Klagenfurt, Darmstadt, Kempen, Hamburg, Neuburg or any of the many other venues, hopefully a place near you.

Under ledelse av Bjarte Eike vil trompetisten Tine Thing Helseth og sopranen Isa Katharina Gericke sammen med Barokksolistene glede publikum med barokkens klassiske mesterverk. Det blir vakkert, jublende og stemningsfullt. Programmet inneholder verk av Händel, Corelli og Bach, samt noen julemusikalske gaver.
