© Alexander Banck-Petersen

Danish National Baroque Orchestra Concerto Copenhagen played its first concerts in 1991 and has since developed into Scandinavia’s leading baroque orchestra, joining the league of the world’s most exciting and innovative baroque ­orchestras. Original interpretations and a strong ability to communicate with the audience are among Concerto Copenhagen’s hallmarks – ­making early music vital, relevant and contemporary.

Since 1999, the collaboration between Concerto Copenhagen and Lars Ulrik Mortensen has proved to be an exciting artistic and musical journey, appreciated and praised by audiences and critics ­worldwide, combining a repertoire of well-known European music with less ­familiar works of Scandinavian origin, including contemporary music. Now approaching its 30th anniversary, the orchestra continues to stay relevant, further exploring the possibilities of early music and energizing audiences worldwide with its sonic storytelling.
