B'Rock Orchestra was set up in Ghent in 2005. At its basis was an urge for renewal and rejuvenation in the world of early music. The selected international musicians specialise in historically informed performance practices.
B'Rock combines established works by baroque composers with the lesser-known repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries. It focuses especially on giving first performances of new music written with its historic instruments in mind. In its cross-genre productions, early music is combined with theatre, visual art and/or video. The Orchestra regularly engages guest conductors and soloists such as René Jacobs, Jérémie Rhorer and Andreas Spering. B'Rock also frequently collaborates with choral ensembles such as RIAS Kammerchor, Collegium Vocale Gent, the Nederlands Kamerkoor and Cappella Amsterdam. The orchestra gives about 45 concerts every season, both in Belgium and abroad.
