Last week at Kultwerk West we celebrated the 60th jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. I used Skype to set up a video link with four people I know from my time in Birmingham or through work, and was really proud to show Britain as a diverse, internationally oriented, and quite relaxed country.
I baked some scones, which went down well; people even…

It's sometimes elegant, sometimes rough, sometimes courtly and sometimes fiery, and occasionally all of the above, at once! Canadian baroque flautist, Brian Berryman, gives us a view into the traditional music likely to have been heard by the early members of the congregation of the English church in Hamburg in the next concert in the 400th…Continue

Have you also noticed that many successful Baroque composers who made their careers in England were actually foreigners? With its unique free-market concert landscape, 18th century London was the city of endless possibilities for musicians of continental Europe’s more restrictive courts.
The ‘English’ works by French, Italian and German composers in this Saturday's…

If I am…Continue

The young ensemble's CD, Schirokkos Seereisen, was selected ‘CD der Woche’ by NDR and captures the listener with its 'extraordinary sense of sound, imaginative playing and great precision'. This is…Continue
