Founded in 1971, the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble presents late 17th- and early 18th-century music from Germany, Italy, Poland, and Sweden, including three works from the composer known as “The Swedish Handel.”

Recorded live in concert January 21, 2017, in the Auditorium of Radio France Broadcasting House, Paris.
