Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale

Our musicians perform on instruments appropriate to the period. In some cases, the instruments are historical treasures dating from the baroque and classical eras. In other cases, the instruments have been produced by modern craftsmen working in the historical tradition. We note the makers of our musicians’ instruments.
