One of the world’s leading period instrument orchestras, the English Baroque Soloists, led by founder and multi-Grammy-winning conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner, appear in an exquisite and historically informed performance of early music.
Throughout its repertoire, ranging from Monteverdi to Mozart and Haydn, the English Baroque Soloists are equally at home in chamber, symphonic and operatic performances and the distinctive sound of its warm and incisive playing is instantly recognizable. The orchestra has performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues, including Teatro alla Scala, Milan, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and the Sydney Opera House.
Sir John Eliot Gardiner is revered as one of the world’s most innovative and dynamic musicians, constantly in the vanguard of enlightened interpretation and standing as a leader in contemporary musical life. His work, as founder and artistic director of the Monteverdi Choir (MC), English Baroque Soloists (EBS) and Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique (ORR), has marked him out as a key figure both in the early music revival and as a pioneer of historically informed performances.
Gardiner conducted with almost ferocious energy. Rhythms were exactingly precise, textures beautifully illuminated, shifts in mood immaculately judged...It was impossible not to be swept away by it all.
