A Royal Collaboration with Bjarte Eike and members of Barokksolistene

“Bjarte Eike mixes period performance with alehouse singalongs to exhilarating effect” The Guardian

 

Charismatic violinist and director Bjarte Eike and principal members of Barokksolistene, renowned for their Alehouse Sessions, make their LHF debut in this unique collaboration with the Royal Academy of Music.   

Supporting and nurturing young talent is at the heart of the London Handel Festival’s mission and this performance brings together some of the finest young baroque musicians from leading UK conservatoires to form a brand new ensemble.

The programme features a lively mix of Handel, Purcell and Rebel plus explorations of a much more adventurous repertoire, including moments of improvisation for which Bjarte and his ensemble have become so renowned.
