La Folia – this term of the baroque era focusses on adventerousness, fury, jollity and generally on a artistic attitude of liberality and excessive creativity. Since their foundation in 2007 the La Folia Barockorchester on period instruments vitalizes the international music scene with these attributes.

Whether in a chamber music instrumentation or with baroque opulence, whether with instrumental music or together with vocal soloist – the aspiring young orchestra under the direction of the violinist Robin Peter Müller stands for energetic and overwhelming interpretations of the musik from the 17th and 18th century. Historically informed the musicians are looking for opportunities to transfer the emotions and contents of the past centuries into contemporary interpretations.

During only a few years the LFBO has thrilled both – the audience and the critics.

Highlights of  2015 and 2016 are several concerts with Simone Kermes, Stefan Temmingh, Regula Mühlemann and Hille Perl, the debuts at the Wiener Musikverein and the Rheingau Musik Festival and the first collaboration with the Wiener Sängerknaben.

Historically informed the musicians are looking for opportunities to transfer the emotions and contents of the past centuries into contemporary interpretations.

During only a few years the LFBO has thrilled both – the audience and the critics. With great sucess the orchestra was invited to the Berliner Philharmonie, the Kölner Philharmonie, the Herkulessaal München, the Union Hall in Maribor (SLO), the Stadtcasino Basel or the Musikverein Graz. Also they were guests at the e.g. Intenrationale Händelfestspiele Göttingen, the Mozartfest Würzburg and the Dresdner Musikfestspiele.

Frequently the LFBO collaborates with well-known Solists, e.g. Hille Perl, Simone Kermes and Jan Vogler as well as Juliane Banse, Dorothee Oberlinger, Jens Peter Maintz, Julia Schröder, Maurice Steger, Ramón Ortega Quero, Stefan Temmingh and Reinhold Friedrich.

After several live-recordings the debut-CD with „Concerti furiosi“ by Antonio Vivaldi was published in 2014 (Deutsche Harmonia Mundi/SONY) and got lots of exposure. Together with Jan Vogler the Orchestra produced in May 2014 a second recording with Cello Concerti from Venice by Caldara, Porpora, Vivaldi and Marcello for SONY international. The CD was released in October 2014 in combination with a concert tour through Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In spring 2015 the recent production was released – Vivaldi's „Quattro stagioni“ in combination with his Violin concerto „Il grosso mogul“ and – as a world premiere recording – a Violin concerto by Giuseppe Antonio Brescianello.

Highlights of  2015 and 2016 are several concerts with Simone Kermes, Stefan Temmingh, Regula Mühlemann and Hille Perl, the debuts at the Wiener Musikverein and the Rheingau Musik Festival and the first collaboration with the Wiener Sängerknaben.
