Ensemble Floridante 10
“Entre amis – with friends”
Festive joint concert by members of the Finnish Baroque Orchestra and the Floridante
Finnish-Estonian musical relations in the field of historically informed performance practice go back decades. The Finnish-Estonian Baroque Orchestra, founded in 1989, has spawned a number of chamber music projects as well as many personal friendships. Today, both the Haapsalu Early Music Festival’s baroque orchestra and the Floridante ensemble regularly engage Finnish musicians, the opposite being already unimaginable. The joint concert of FiBO and Floridante is in some ways symbolic – both geographical and stylistic openness aim to describe the Haapsalu Early Music Festival’s ‘house band’ in its new decade.
