The music of the great Baroque composers is no less popular today than it was in the 17th and 18th centuries.
The founder of the first, and so far only, Baroque music festival in the South Caucasus is the Tbilisi State Chamber Orchestra, Georgian Sinfonietta, which purchased authentic Baroque-era musical instruments to become the first Baroque orchestra in all of the Caucasus.
In the years since its inception, the Tbilisi Baroque Festival has played host to such luminaries of Baroque music as Jordi Savall, Christine Busch, Christoph Mayer, Davide Armadio, Jean Rondeau, the Academy for Early Music Berlin, and many others.
In addition to concerts, scientific and educational lectures are also given during the festival. World-famous musicians attending the festival also give masterclasses on the authentic way to play early music.
