Lars Ulrik Mortensen and the rest of Concerto Copenhagen are going on tour to the reknowed Musikfestspiele Potsdam Sanssouci near Berlin and since to Brunnenthal in Austria with a program quite similar to the anniversary year closing concert Earth, Wind & Fire in November 2016 directed by Jordi Savall.

The concert by the Orangerie during Musikfestspiele Potsdam Sanssouci is the festival's prominent outdoor concert terminated with fireworks.

A summer night of baroque ligtning and thunder

»It is very clear that Concerto Copenhagen’s musicians interprete the music with great pleasure and follow their director Lars Ulrik Mortensen with utmost conviction […] A stormy night with a suitably stormy applause.«

Michael Wruss – 13/6 2017

Fire water storm baroque!

»The Danish musicians gave the music a majestic quality, which evoked memories of Edward Elgar's preferred lecturial term "Nobilmente".«

A Baroque storm in Potsdam

»Concerto Copenhagen increased both tempo and volume further under the direction of the temperamental Lars Ulrik Mortensen, with breaks of constantly new and even more musical versions to stage the dynamics of ebb and river.«
