Finnish Baroque Orchestra

Finnish Baroque Orchestra

New commissions for period instruments, fresh interpretations of old repertoire, courageous and innovative working methods, unique concepts that engage a diverse audience – FiBO offers all this while being an influential force in the Nordic cultural scene.

Founded in 1989, the Finnish Baroque Orchestra has consolidated its position within the Finnish orchestral scene. Since its inception, FiBO has collaborated with some of the foremost soloists and concertmasters of the age and performed a wide-ranging repertoire. The focus is generally on Baroque music, but the orchestra often explores works from other periods too, from early Baroque to early Romanticism. FiBO also plays contemporary music composed for period instruments, and has commissioned and recorded several works itself.

FiBO regularly performs as orchestra in residence at the festive House of Nobility in Helsinki and tours widely across Finland and abroad. Throughout its history, FiBO has been a forerunner in the Finnish music scene. Beginning life as the Sixth Floor Orchestra, it has played an important role in the emergence of the early-music movement in Northern Europe. As the orchestra has developed, FiBO’s exciting performances, creative programming and innovative projects have caught the attention of concert organisers both in Finland and abroad. From widening economic support at home to growing popularity abroad, and with awards including Finnish Musical Act of the Yearand Disc of the Year (Yle), FiBO continues to forge a unique path as a Baroque orchestra for the 21st century.

Moramoramor, the first FiBO Records album, was released in November 2017 to critical acclaim. In addition to the upcoming projects in progress with FiBO Records, the orchestra has worked with other labels, including Ondine, Alba and Alpha Classics.
