Lars Ulrik Mortensen is a distinguished cembalo player specializing in baroque music. The world-famous Dane also plays music from the Viennese classics, which he does with the same sense of rhythm, drama and eagerness.

This Saturday we will get to hear a variety of Viennese classics with a program consisting of Mozart, Haydn, Salomon and Hartmann.

Concerto Copenhagen played its first concerts in 1991 and has since developed into Scandinavia's leading ensemble in early music and one of the most exciting and innovative baroque orchestras in the world. Original interpretations and a strong ability to communicate with the audience are among Concerto Copenhagen's chief characteristics – making older music vital, relevant and contemporary.

In 1999 Lars Ulrik Mortensen was assigned as the ensemble's artistic director. He was awarded the Léonie Sonning's Music Prize in 2007.

SCANDINAVIAN ORIGINS

The collaboration between Concerto Copenhagen and Lars Ulrik Mortensen has led to an exciting artistic and musical journey, appreciated and praised by audiences and critics around the world. The ensemble has managed to combine a repertoire of well-known European music with less familiar works of Scandinavian origin.

Over the years, Concerto Copenhagen has collaborated with many of the major internationally renowned artists in the early music scene, such as Emma Kirkby, Andreas Scholl, Anne Sofie von Otter, Sonia Prina, Vivica Genaux, Andrew Manze, Andrew Lawrence-King, Reinhard Goebel, Ronald Brautigam, Jordi Savall and Alfredo Bernardini.
