The baroque orchestra „nuovo barocco“ was founded in Vienna by Greek violinist Dimitris Karakantas and Hungarian baroque oboist Bettina Simon. The young baroque orchestra finds its roots in the bigger family of the “Orchester 1756” from Salzburg/Vienna, an orchestra also led by Dimitris Karakantas. The young, international musicians of “nuovo barocco”, having performed in some of the most important baroque festivals and venues and worked with some of the greatest soloists of our days are searching for a new, fresh, modern interpretation of baroque music in this smaller, vivid group.

2018, the first year of its existence, nuovo barocco is already performing throughout Europe, with concerts in the Brahms Hall of the Vienna Musikverein, the Grands Concerts at the Chapelle de la Trinité de Lyon and the Bach Festival Lausanne, collaborating with the great singers Max Emanuel Cencic and Jake Arditti.
