About the album

Bergen Barokk's second release on the LAWO Classics label Suite Life, takes us to the French court during the reign of the Sun King. Elegant conversation, music, painting, fencing and dance - the arts performed with a certain nonchalance - were the true test of aristocrats. The leading musicians during the Sun King's reign composed obligingly within the confines of strict protocols of style, though they were allowed to give their own personal touch. The suites on this recording are largely taken from the many great musical publications from the Paris of the early 1700's. The publications, which were released 'avec Privilege du Roy' reflect the grand balls, concerts, opera and ballet performances at the court and were well-received by a bourgeoisie filled with reverence for the luxurious and illustrious court life.
Das Bergen Barokk wurde 1994 gegründet und gehört heute zu den führenden norwegischen Ensembles für Alte Musik. Auf alten Instrumenten entführen sie den Hörer mit Stücken aus Publikationen um 1700 “avec Privilège du Roy” in das Frankreich Louis' XIV.

Artist(s)

Bergen Barokk was established in 1994 and is now one of Norway’s leading early music ensembles. The group has performed concerts and appeared in radio broadcasts in Europe, Russia and USA. Their recordings on Simax Classics, BIS, Bergen Digital Studio, Toccata Classics and LAWO include German, English, Italian and French repertoire. Since 2006, the ensemble has worked on the complete recording of Telemann’s cantata cycle “Harmonischer Gottes-Dienst”, a collection of 72 cantatas for all Sundays, Passiontide as well as feast days of the liturgical year. The project is a collaboration between The Grieg Academy (University of Bergen) and Toccata Classics, London. “A Holberg Recital” is Bergen Barokk’s 3-CD series consisting of music based on the Danish-Norwegian writer, essayist, philosopher, historian and playwright Ludvig Holberg’s own musical taste and repertoire.
Bergen Barokk has collaborated with several ensembles in recent years, including amongst others, Pratum Integrum (Moscow), The Norwegian Soloists’ Choir and Barokksolistene (Norway) , in addition to festivals such as Festspillene i Bergen, Philadelphia Bach Festival, Moscow Early Music Festival and Janácek International Music Festival (Czech Republic).
Bergen Barokk receives annual financial support from Arts Council Norway and Bergen City Council.
