The English Concert

The English Concert appearing at this event

Europe's leading Baroque orchestra, under the direction of conductor Harry Bicket, The English Concert has an unsurpassed reputation for inspiring performances of Baroque and Classical music and ranks among the finest chamber orchestras in the world. 'Bicket unwrapped a musical surprise, too, in the shape of a concerto for four violins by the mysterious Dutch diplomat-composer Unico Willem van Wassenaer, some of whose work was for many years attributed to Pergolesi, no less. The playing, with Matthew Truscott's violin always eloquently at the forefront, was ravishingly good' (The Guardian) 'The English Concert, the acclaimed period instrument ensemble, with Harry Bicket conducting, presented an elegant, dramatically riveting concert performance at Carnegie Hall, with a splendid cast headed by the superb mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato in the title role' (New York Times)
