Orquestra Barroca CatalanaPublicado: 12 febrero, 2011
Repertoire: Baroque and Classical
The Catalan Baroque Orchestra was founded in 1993 with the aim of performing and reviving the 17th and 18th Century repertoire. It is made up of professional musicians specialized in historically informed performance on period instruments. Among its goals has been making a contribution to the spread of Early Music using musicians trained in Catalonia. Over the years it has established connections with other musical entities and has been directed by prestigious international conductors.
Each season it offers original productions in the professional series and festivals of Classical music. Currently it is working to recover the Catalan musical heritage of the 18th Century by such composers as Josep and Manel Pla, Domenec Terradellas and Feran Sor.
