In 2016, the Symphony formed its own baroque ensemble, which has since performed concerts both at the Concert Hall and on tours in the region. An internationally respected baroque personality has been successfully tied to the ensemble as artistic director – Italian cellist Stefano Veggetti.

Alongside the musicians of the Baroque Academy Gothenburg Symphony, he explores music using a perspective that stays true to the period – the way it may have sounded when the music was first composed. The well-known Vivaldi, and lesser-known Neapolitan Durante are represented in one concerto each, and hot-headed virtuoso Veracini in an overture.

In addition, there will be a violin concerto by Maddalena Sirmen, a phenomenon on the violin, highly educated in the field of composing. Over a few decades, she travelled far and wide across the world, but she doesn’t seem to have ever visited Sweden. Concertmaster Ferling did, however, play a violin concerto by “Madame Syrmen” at Riddarhuset in Stockholm on 23 October, 1774 – perhaps the very one we are now to hear in Gothenburg.
