Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra

Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra

The Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra is based in San Francisco and dedicated to historically informed performance of Baroque, Classical and early Romantic music.

Founded in 1981 by harpsichordist, teacher and early music pioneer, Laurette Goldberg (1932-2005). Their 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.
