Event 153

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

In concert

 – St Mary’s Church

Presenting music for violin and viola duo by Mozart and his contemporaries Ignaz Pleyel, Michael Haydn and Franz Anton Hoffmeister, members of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment perform on instruments from the period, tuning up for an evening of virtuosity. They will create the closest possible experience to what the original composers imagined and the first audiences heard.

Renowned around the world for its dynamic music making driven by curiosity, the Orchestra takes its name from the description commonly given to the scientific, cultural and political revolution in western Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries.
