About

The English Concert with Artistic Director Harry Bicket and distinguished guest artists continues to perform Baroque and Classical music with the passion, sophistication and technical mastery established at its creation.

About the orchestra

With an unsurpassed reputation for inspiring performances of baroque and classical music, The English Concert ranks among the finest chamber orchestras in the world. Such standing is the result of tireless work at home, on the road and in the studio since 1973, guided along the way by founder Trevor Pinnock, his successor Andrew Manze, and current Artistic Director Harry Bicket.
