The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment is a trail-blazing ensemble that does things a little differently. Performances, given on original period instruments, are as their composers would have imagined them and this concert showcases riches from the Baroque period.

These days Bach, Handel, Vivaldi and their contemporaries are heard less often in large concert halls than on air, in recordings or even on film sound-tracks. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience some of the best-loved pieces ever composed from this era, all presented with a fresh storyline by the players from the stage.
