The Program

Charismatic early-music star and music director of the Academy of Ancient Music, Richard Egarr leads the Festival Orchestra from the keyboard in jewels of the High Baroque. Whether it’s the lilting French dances of Handel’s Water Music or the dazzling runs of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, considered by many to be the first keyboard concerto, this program is filled with symphonic delights from the early days of the modern orchestra.

“Heightened every moment of drama and evoked a sense of magic.”
– Financial Times on Richard Egarr
“A flagrant pusher of baroque boundaries, his music frenetic and uncompromising but sumptuous…his sense of drama is never shy.”
– Guardian (U.K.) on Richard Egarr
