Corelli Baroque Orchestra (CBO), the period-instrument baroque orchestra from Estonia, performed for the first time in December 2006. The artistic director of the orchestra is Mail Sildos who plays baroque violin at the orchestra. CBO is the logical continuation to baroque ensemble Corelli Consort (started in 1992) and concert agency Corelli Music (active since 2004). The tradition of period-instrument baroque orchestra in Estonia has been going on for over twenty years and today Estonia has a huge privilege to own the full orchestra of professional musicians who play on authentic baroque instruments. In few years of existence, CBO has received warm reception from both audience and critics who have especially marked the orchestra's gallant and tasteful phrasing, professionalism and joy of playing together.
