Johannes Rostamo

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 and since 2022 as professor of cello at Royal College of Music in Stockholm. He also has an active career both as soloist, chamber musician and baroque musician. In addition, Johannes is the artistic leader of the early music ensemble Orfeus Barock Stockholm with a concert series in Grünewaldsalen,Stockholm.


With the concert project RESONANS, Rostamo-Borregaard Duo wants to convey a collection of musical testimonies from different religious, spiritual or otherwise human existential standpoints.

Duo Exsjellente

Rick and Johannes, two close friends have been leading their sections in the two rivalling Stockholm orchestras more than a decade now and in the meantime they have run a concert series together with Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble experimenting on the concert constellation for more than 40 projects.

Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble

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.

Orfeus Barock Ensemble

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.
