Delighted that @RachPodger is going to join our Chief Exec Crispin Woodhead for tomorrow night's Four Seasons pre-c… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…


Last week, we enjoyed a fabulous concert with fast rising star Jonathan Cohen conducting and regular OAE collaborator Sarah Connolly singing some wonderful arias from Purcell, Rameau and Charpentier.

Here’s what the reviewers said about the concert:

Evening Standard

The Independent

Classical Source

Financial Times

The Times (subscribers only)

Thanks to all who tweeted during the concert too, our favourite comment was:

“Blinking Hell! I always thought @spconnolly was fab, but tonight she got into my heart and soul and had a good old rummage. Superb”

  • I have calmed down a little now but on the night the discrepancy between the programme on the internet, in the free booklet and on the hard-to-find handout made me incandescent with rage.

    However beautiful the singing and playing were I was sold a pig in a poke – only five pieces I had paid to see were played and until I managed to discover a copy of the handout at the interval I had no Idea what I was hearing.

    Enlightenment was not exactly the word and I am not encouraged to attend further concerts by the OAE.

    Put that on your twee “storify” board.
