Brecon Baroque Festival 2016 - “London”

Friday 21 - Monday 24 October

This year’s Festival explores the music of Henry Purcell, his contemporaries and his musical context.

Over the long weekend Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque will be joined by the singers of Trinity Baroque, counter tenor Robin Blaze, and Welsh based period ensemble Ystradivarius.

Purcell’s Fairy Queen opens the Festival on the Friday evening, and the weekend will feature music by not only Purcell but also Byrd, Dowland, Thomas Tallis, Handel, J. C. Bach, Charles Avison and others.

As well as the concert programme we are planning a rich programme of talks, guided walks and the Baroque Tea Dance, and our pop-up cafe this year will be inspired by London’s Restoration coffee-houses. Full details of the programme will be published in early May.
