Founded in 1997, the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra offers audiences early music in a fresh, distinctive presentation. The orchestra’s concerts and recordings, while frequently including first modern performances of unpublished, undiscovered or reconstructed masterpieces, also shed unexpected and often controversial new light on more familiar works. Aapo Häkkinen started out as artistic director of the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra in 2003, and in 2009 Riccardo Minasi took the position of associate director. Recent engagements have included appearances at the London Wigmore Hall, the Cologne Philharmonie, the Berlin Konzerthaus and the Washington Library of Congress, and at the Bruges, Bayreuth, Bremen, Brühl, Dresden, Eisenach, Halle, Göttingen, Köthen, Schwetzingen, Madrid, Santiago de Compostela, Seville, Bolzano, Palermo, Brežice, Zagreb, Varaždin, Riga, Stockholm and Jerusalem festivals. Soloists and guest directors have included Franco Fagioli, Reinhard Goebel, Monica Groop, Pierre Hantaï, Erich Höbarth, Vesselina Kasarova, María Cristina Kiehr, Topi Lehtipuu, Yulia Lezhneva, Viktoria Mullova, Enrico Onofri, Skip Sempé and Nathalie Stutzmann.
