Celebrating 18th century's greatest hits

A baroque-tastic evening celebrating even more of the 18th century’s greatest hits, exploring why the masterpieces of the time became so popular and why these tunes are still everywhere today. Named after the 18th century explosion of science, philosophy and music in Western Europe, the link between the Age of Enlightenment and the Orchestra is its never-ending spirit of enquiry. In this lively programme of baroque favourites, expect intriguing performances and earworms in this fun and informative introduction to these classics. Presented from the stage, the musicians of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment will guide you through why they love this music.
