The Belgrade Baroque ensemble was founded in 2003 by Serbian violinist Predrag Novović based in Sweden and a group of students who had been ac-tively participating in Novović’s baroque music workshops in Belgrade. Ever since, Belgrade Baroque has consisted of musicians interested in histori-cally-informed performance practice of 17th and 18th century music, playing period instruments, and as such, is one of the first ensembles of its kind in Serbia.
The ensemble has worked with a number of renowned musicians from the domain of early music and has held successful concerts both in Serbia and abroad, also appearing on festivals and Summer seasons such as Belgrade Summer Festival (BELEF), Belgrade International Harpsichord Festival, Early Music Festival in Belgrade, Austria Barock Akademie – Gmunden, Salzkammer-gut Festwochen (AT), Timisoara Early Music Festival (RO), Confidancen Theatre, Urliksdal (SWE), etc.
From 2010 to 2013 ensemble is supported by Austria Barock Akademie (AT) through scholarships for Summer masterclasses in Gmunden and workshops in Belgrade, giving the ensemble members opportunity to study with the interna-tionally acclaimed artists and teachers specialized in historically-informed per-formance practice.
As an ABA prize winner at the Austria Barock Akademie Music Awards 2011 in Gmunden, in 2012 Belgrade Baroque gave a concert performance with live broadcasting in Vienna – ORF Radiokulturhaus. In 2014 Belgrade Baroque per-formed a concert in Radio Belgrade’s famous Studio 6 with live broad-casting on national radio and TV.
Since 2015, Belgrade Baroque performs intensively in Serbia, and has suc-cessfully realized many projects through cooperation with various cultural institutions. Belgrade Baroque strives to contribute to the better understanding of historically-informed performance practice of music, music education and widening of music audience. Ensemble also stimulates Serbian composers to write pieces inspired by the baroque heritage and the sonority of the historical instruments, fitting them into ensemle’s unique modes of expression, in accordance with the present time. By doing so, Belgrade Baroque keeps on enriching its repertoire and Serbian contemporary music in general.
