Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

One of the top "period instrument" orchestras in the world, the OAE try to be authentic, by using instruments and playing styles similar to those the composer would have been familiar with.

In 1986, a group of inquisitive London musicians took a long hard look at that curious institution we call the Orchestra, and decided to start again from scratch. They began by throwing out the rulebook. Put a single conductor in charge? No way. Specialise in repertoire of a particular era? Too restricting. Perfect a work and then move on? Too lazy. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment was born.  

Now more than thirty years old, the trailblazing period-instrument players of the OAE are part of our country’s musical furniture. They have even graced the outstanding conducting talents of Elder, Rattle, Jurowski, Iván Fischer and John Butt with a joint title of Principal Artist. But don’t ever think the ensemble has lost sight of its founding vow. Not all orchestras are the same. And there’s nothing quite like this one. 

In this concert, they’ll perform Corelli’s Concerto Grosso and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, with more pieces to be confirmed.
