Barokksolistene
Barokksolistene
Barokksolistene, founded and led by Norwegian violinist and Artistic Director Bjarte Eike, is a baroque ensemble that “brings the raw rhythms of Scandinavian folk music to… the high baroque” (- Financial Times). They draw on their native influences and traditions to produce unique projects and programmes that range from performances of Handel’s operas to their unique, branded Alehouse Sessions. They are currently the Ensemble-in-Residence at the Bergen National Opera.

Recent highlights have included a critically acclaimed production of Handel’s Alcina with the Norwegian National Opera, a series of performances in Norway of a reconstruction of Bach’s St Mark Passion and a European tour of Alehouse Sessions to mark their 10th anniversary in 2015. Upcoming performances include appearances at many of Europe’s leading venues and festivals, including the Musikverein in Vienna, Norwegian National Opera, Den Ny Opera in Esbjerg, Utrecht Early Music Festival, Klagenfurt Festival, the Rheingau Festival and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
