Here’s what the audience thought of our all-Bach concert with Ian Bostridge, a few weeks ago at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. We’re about to go off on tour with Ian with the same programme, so if you live in Vienna, Dresden, Prague, Warsaw or Innsbruck you still have a chance to catch this concert. Details in the what’s on section.
As ever, we caught up with some of the audience after Wednesday’s Night Shift performance to find out what people made of it – here’s what you said:Read More
We’re looking forward to our next Night Shift event on Wednesday (4 May), and ahead of it we’ve just released our latest podcast. In it we feature an in-depth interview with star pianist Artur Pizarro, talk to OAE violinist and Leader Alison Bury about what it’s like playing at The Night Shift, plus we look ahead to our June event in Shoreditch. First though we start off hearing from you, with audience reaction to our last event.
The Night Shift returns on Wednesday 4 May
The podcast will also shortly be available on itunes, just search for Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

Well I think we’re just about recovered from our Baroque. Contrasted. festival which we held at Kings Place the other week. It was certainly a pretty intense week, particularly for those who were here every day and night for five days! We had some great concerts, workshops and events, and trying to force myself to be a tenor in our Sing Baroque! event (I’m really a bass) was a particular highlight interesting moment for me…
It was great though to see so many people turn out for this event and for our Baroque from Scratch session(for amateur instrumentalists) too – we’re pretty sure to plan more events like this, together with our inreasingly popular TOTS concerts.
Anyway, after some of the concerts we caught up with you to find out what you thought – here’s what you said. Thanks to all for coming!
