Tea with Netty #26: Violinist and conductor Monica Huggett

The kettle's on for a cup of tea with Monica Huggett.

Monica Huggett  gravitated to the baroque violin in the early 70’s, also appearing with classical and contemporary music groups, and even in sessions with the Rolling Stones! She became well-known as a soloist, leader and director, notably with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Trio Sonnerie, and appeared as soloist and director with OAE, as well as recording the Mozart violin concertos with us. More recently she ran the early Music department at Juilliard in NY, alongside directing both the Portland Baroque and Irish Baroque Orchestras.


Tea with Netty is the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s podcast hosted by viola player Annette Isserlis (Netty). Over a cuppa (or something a little stronger…), Netty chats with a variety of conductors, players and other guests as she ‘spills the tea’ on the side of classical music you don’t normally hear.
