“Baroque Fever was formed by leading members of the new generation of early music specialists in 2000. The members represent four nationalities, now all based in Copenhagen.
Following an initial round of concerts in Denmark and Sweden, to universal critical acclaim in the national press, they have made numerous appearances (many with radio relay on Danmarks Radio and the EBU network) throughout Northern Europe.
The core formation is 2 violins and continuo, enabling Baroque Fever to focus on the extrovert, extravagant Italian music from around 1700, as well as its influences throughout the rest of Europe.
In addition to concerts at festivals such as the Holland Festival of Early Music Utrecht, York Festival in UK, Copenhagen Renaissance Music Festival, Båstad Festival and Vantaa Baroque, they collaborate with larger ensembles, such as Norwegian Baroque Orchestra, Arte dei Suonatori (Poland), I Fagiolini (uk) as well as other musicians.
They teach and give masterclasses, both individually and as an ensemble, at leading Nordic conservatories and summer schools.”
