Finnish Baroque Orchestra

The Finnish Baroque Orchestra (Fibo) has made its mark on the Finnish classical music scene in many ways. Its national operations each year comprise concerts and education in dozens of localities. These are supplemented by mattress, home and institution concerts, foreign tours and other events designed to further interaction with the public at large. The orchestra's website is an expanding source of information on Baroque music, thanks to its modules aimed at different age groups.

The Finnish Baroque Orchestra plays music from the 17th century to the early Romantic era. It also seeks novel perspectives on early instruments by performing new music on Baroque instruments. Among the works it has premiered are Mora for tenor and Baroque orchestra by Jukka Tiensuu and Ambrosian Delights for knifonium by Olli Virtaperko.

The orchestra seeks new ideas by inviting numerous guest artists. During Markku Luolajan-Mikkola's term as Artistic Director these have included Sirkka-Liisa Kaakinen-Pilch, Georg Kallweit, Topi Lehtipuu, Hannu Lintu, Sandrine Piau, Karina Gauvin, Juha Kangas, John Storgårds, Aleksei Lybimov, Piia Komsi, Wolfgang Gaisböck, Andres Mustonen, Björn Colell, Alfredo Bernardini, Marianne Beate Kielland, Arttu Kataja and Erich Hoeprich.
