Concerto Copenhagen has embarked on a journey of exploration for over 30 years, delving into the music of the Baroque, Viennese Classical and Early Romantic periods with historical awareness and unwavering dedication. Today, Concerto Copenhagen holds a prominent position in its field, both nationally and internationally. Under the musical guidance of Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Concerto Copenhagen blends a meticulous approach to historical material with artistic originality, continuously evolving in performance style and presentation. This ensures that the music comes to life through vibrant rejuvenation, remaining relevant to contemporary audiences.

Concerto Copenhagen’s musicians belong to the international elite of Baroque musicians. Their loyalty and dedication to the orchestra have been cultivated through many years of artistic development and excellence.

Since its inaugural concerts in 1991, Concerto Copenhagen has released numerous internationally acclaimed albums and taken part in hundreds of concerts, opera productions, as well as soundtrack and video projects worldwide. With a repertoire that combines well-known European compositions with lesser-known works of Scandinavian origin and contemporary music, the orchestra celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2021. In recognition of their exceptional artistry, Lars Ulrik Mortensen and Concerto Copenhagen were awarded the prestigious ‘Artist of the Year’ by Danish radio P2 in 2022.
