This year Concerto Copenhagen, one of the best baroque orchestras in the world, had their 25 years anniversary. For the last program in 2016 they invited Jordi Savall. He chose music that illustrated the elements of nature with music also to remind us of taking care of the earth. "We do not have a second planet" as Savall said.

The concert was performed in Copenhagen, Budapest, Bruxelles and Cologne on November 24-17th, 2016. The concert from Budapest was transmitted on radio.
In June 2017, you can hear "Earth, wind and Fire" with CoCo and Lars Ulrik Mortensen in Potsdam, close to Berlin, and Brunnthal, close to München.
This was my first photo session with Concerto Copenhagen, although I have taken pictures of many musicians before in the Ensembles Camerata Øresund, Cappela Sankt Petri and the Næstved Festival Orchestra. To take pictures if musicians while they do what they love to do and they enjoy playing together is a great pleasure. And even more if their music is of so incredible high quality.
That Jordi Savall wrote on his Facebook page " Wonderful pictures of our project at Concerto Copenhagen" is the greatest complement on can get at as a concert photographer and music fan.
