About Barocco Sempre Giovane
“Baroque still young” is a chamber ensemble composed of top young professional musicians.

Its concerts have been broadcasted live by Czech Television, Televize Noe and Czech Radio, and recorded on CD. They organise their own subscription series concerts.
The ensemble works with leading Czech and foreign soloists including for example Jan Mráček, Václav Hudeček, Ivan Ženatý, Jana Boušková, Dagmar Pecková or Giuliano Carmignola.
