Academy Of Ancient Music
The acclaimed AAM celebrate another pinnacle of JS Bach’s instrumental music. The Orchestral Suites are a series of grand and graceful dances, paying homage to the French baroque style, as championed by the ballet-obsessed King Louis XIV - They revel in the new sonorous possibilities of a wider range of instruments and employ varied combinations of wind, brass, stringed instruments and timpani.
Renowned for thrilling audiences with its fresh, engaging performances of baroque and classical music, over the past four decades the Academy of Ancient Music has performed live on every continent except Antarctica and reached millions with its acclaimed array of over 300 Brit - and Grammy-Award-winning CDs.

Founded in 1973, The AAM was a pioneer in historically-informed Baroque performance. Today, they perform music from Monteverdi and Mendelssohn to the modern day, with commissions from composers such as John Woolrich and and Sir John Tavener.
