Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble

The Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble was founded by Lars Brolin in 1971 and performs on period instruments. The ensemble is named after Drottningholm Palace just outside Stockholm, now the permanent residence of the King and Queen of Sweden. In the palace grounds stands a theatre built in 1766 and completely preserved in its original condition.

Extensive tours in Europe have earned the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble an enviable reputation on the international concert scene. The Ensemble has also toured frequently in the Far East (to Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Australia) and was one of the first Swedish ensembles to visit China, accompanying the King and Queen of Sweden on a state visit to Beijing, Shengdu and Shanghai. The ensemble’s first tour to the USA in 1985 received splendid reviews, not least in New York and Washington D.C.

The ensemble has worked with conductors such as Andrew Parrott, Christopher Hogwood, Sigiswald Kuijken and Eric Ericson. Many TV appearances and radio recordings testify to the ensemble’s international standing, and it has made numerous recordings for BIS including a highly acclaimed version of Vivaldi’ Four Seasons [BIS-CD-275].
