Join us for the launch of our 50th anniversary celebrations, and an exciting series of commissions that will renew our understanding of the Baroque repertoire we love. We start with the theme of “beginnings & endings”, with a world première from our composer-in-residence Alec Roth, and with two sublime cantatas by Bach.

 

Pre-concert talk, 6.15pm: Alec and Jeffrey introduce the programme with live examples.
