Relationship with other ensembles directed by Gardiner

The English Baroque Soloists often appear with John Eliot Gardiner's choir, the Monteverdi Choir. The Monteverdi Choir, which was formed in 1964, was originally partnered by the Monteverdi Orchestra which did not use period instruments.

In 1990 Gardiner formed the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, another period instrument ensemble. The Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique specialises in a later repertoire than that of the English Baroque Soloists, but shares some players.


The orchestra has recorded under:
