Finnish cellist Johannes Rostamo is a versatile musician, interested in all forms of musical communication from early baroque to contemporary music, from jazz to folk music.
Since 2008 he has served as principal cellist in the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. He also has an active career both as soloist, chamber musician and baroque musician. In addition, Johannes is the artistic leader of Orfeus Barock Stockholm with a concert series in Grünewaldsalen,Stockholm.
Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble represents an idea, a form of expressing music as much as it is a music group. Friends keen to try and experiment with a new type of concert - let’s call it a happening rather than a concert.
The group performs on period instruments and their repertoire ranges from early 17th century to master piece by Händel, Bach and Vivaldi but a special focus lies in bringing forth less known masters, as composers from the Swedish Düben -collection.
Johannes Rostamo intar scenen tillsammans med med sina två (!) violoncelli och tar oss med på en resa genom musikens och instrumentets historia med verk från 1600-talet helt fram till idag.
Gustav 4 är en pianokvartett som startades i Helsingfors under julen 2018.
