The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment - Classical Music Alive in Reading

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment - Classical Music Alive in Reading

Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - 19:30

Katia and Marielle Labèque’s performance at The Concert Hall last season earned a standing ovation, so we are delighted to welcome them back to The Hexagon. They will be joined by principal players of The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, for a French programme finishing with the magnificent Carnival of the Animals. Since their creation just over two decades ago, when a group of London musicians decided to throw out the ‘rulebook’ and start again, the OAE has shocked, changed and mesmerised the music world.
