Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir

Ton Koopman founded the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra (ABO) in 1979. The group consists of internationally renowned Baroque specialists who meet up several times a year and work together to prepare and perform new exciting programmes. For the musicians each concert is a new experience and Koopman’s boundless energy and enthusiasm are a sure guarantee of the highest quality.

Alongside with the Amsterdam Baroque Choir (founded in 1992) ABO have recorded all major Baroque and classical works. Major recognitions include Gramophone Award, Diapason d’Or, 10-Repertoire, Stern des Monats-Fono Forum, Prix Hector Berlioz and two Edison Awards. The ensemble and Ton Koopman have been honoured with the prestigious BBC Award and the Echo Klassik Award for Vol. VII of Buxtehude Opera-Omnia.

In December 2019, Ton Koopman and his ABO&C borought J.S.BACH’s Christmas Oratorio onto an extensive tour to Europe with concerts in Vienna, Brussels, Amsterdam, Milan among others.


Always led by Ton Koopman, ABO&C will then celebrate Easter 2020 with a tour of Händel’s Resurrezione featuring concerts in Genova, Verona, Budapest and in Spain. Further engagements in the coming season include tailored projects, specifically dedicated to the Dresden Music Festival, Kölner Philharmonie and the Bachfest Leipzig.
