neues barocktrio berlin

The musicians of the new baroque trio Berlin share a common passion for baroque and chamber music and bring in the whole range of diversity of their musical experiences and activities. All three musicians are soloists of the New Baroque Orchestra Berlin, which is involved in various concert activities from 2008.

One of the main interests of the New Baroque trio is the rediscovery of women composers of the Baroque era.
