Brecon Baroque Festival 2016 - “Thou flower of cities all”

London’s Music 1550 - 1780

Box Office Now Open

Come and join us for the 2016 Festival which celebrates London’s music from Thomas Tallis to J. C. Bach.

We open on Friday 21 October with Purcell’s Fairy Queen (a nod to Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary), Robin Blaze joins Brecon Baroque on Saturday evening, and on Sunday 23 October Trinity Baroque thrill us with a celebration of Thomas Tallis including his mass ‘Puer Natus Est’. We are delighted to welcome the acclaimed young recorder player Tabea Debus for her Brecon Baroque debut, and the new Welsh Baroque ensemble Ystradivarius.

As well as the concert programme we have a rich programme of talks, a guided walk (Monday morning and afternoon) and dance events as well as the Festival’s pop-up cafe Will’s Coffee House (Saturday and Sunday).

We are also thrilled that the Brecon Baroque Fringe established last year by Gillian Ingham will be taking place again: please see their website for full details of events.
