Classic hits from the hottest composers of the 17th Century. Find out more about some of the stories behind the best-loved pieces of the era. These days Bach, Handel, Vivaldi and their contemporaries are familiar to us through recordings, film soundtracks, adverts, ringtones or remixed as pop songs. Presented from the stage by the musicians of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, this concert explores why these composers became popular in the first place and why they remain so today. Music to be performed includes ‘The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’ by Handel, ‘Air on a G String’, ‘Well-Tempered Clavier’, ‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s desiring’ and ‘Brandenburg Concerto No 3’ by JS Bach, ‘Spring’ from ‘The Four Seasons’ by Vivaldi, Pachelbel’s ‘Canon’, plus music by Albinoni, Lully and Rameau. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment is a trail-blazing ensemble that does things a little differently. They play on ‘period instruments’ so you hear the music as the composers might have imagined it. MULTIBUY OFFER – Buy a ticket for this show and London Mozart Players and save 20%
