Helsinki Baroque Orchestra tours Europe with René Jacobs

René Jacobs

Helsinki Baroque Orchestra embarks on an extensive tour of Europe in May. With seven dates in all, the tour opens in Helsinki on May 9th, followed by concerts in Germany, Spain and Belgium.

The programme consists of Mozart, Kraus and Beethoven. The soloist is Sophie Karthäuser, considered a “born Mozartean” and one of the finest Mozart sopranos of our time. René Jacobs, a stalwart of early music, will be conducting, and excitingly, including Beethoven’s symphonies in his repertoire for the first time.

All of the concert venues are known for high quality programming. One of the highlights will be the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, which with its 2,500 seat auditorium is the largest in Germany.
