Spirit of the Orchestra – a history of the OAE: Book

Spirit of the Orchestra book cover
Price: £5.00 Buy Now

The founding of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in 1986 was one of the absolutely decisive moments in British musical life. Orchestral players seized back command of their own destiny, saying that they were the best people to organise their artistic lives. Conductors who had never worked with period instruments before – Rattle, Mackerras, Jurowski – were attracted in. A revolution in performance style was underway that left few modern symphony orchestras untouched. This is their story.
