Classical music, but not as you know it
The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment is a daring group that like to push the boundaries of classical music. Works by Vivaldi and Handel compliment Sally Beamish’s instant classic Spinal Chords. This piece is set to a text by journalist Melanie Reid, telling of her struggle to overcome disability. Tonight is about mixing up the baroque with the modern and creating a conversation between the two. Programme highlights: - Corelli: Concerto Grosso in D, Op 6 No. 1 - Vivaldi: Sinfonia in B minor, Al Santo Sepolcro - Sally Beamish: Spinal Chords - Handel: Concerto Grosso in A Op 6 No. 11 Seating allocated on arrival.
"For this remarkable ensemble, it's all about the music."
