Journey through time, and across the ocean, with one of the world's foremost period-instrument orchestras as it shines in a program that includes the music of Bach, Telemann and Handel.

Under the direction of harpsichord soloist Richard Egarr, the ensemble has been described as 'still very much at the vanguard of the period-style movvement it launched in concerts and recordings over 30 ears ago."
