Biography

"What an exciting ensemble, music cunningly articulated...every work delivered different colours and emotions." Yorkshire Post

Leeds Baroque (Reg. Charity No. 1116610) is a period instrument performance group based in West Yorkshire. It is directed by Peter Holman (Professor Emeritus of Historical Musicology, University of Leeds), and Director of the Parley of Instruments and Opera Restor'd. 

Members are drawn from professional and non-professional players with students from the region's music colleges. Leeds Baroque performs regularly in  the University of Leeds International Concert Series, and in recent years, the National Centre for Early Music, York; the Georgian Theatre, Richmond and the Hexham Festival. Their repertoire is wide ranging, encompassing great Baroque 'standards' such as Bach, Handel and Purcell but including less frequently performed works by Telemann, Arne, Clarke and Draghi wit occasional forays into the works of Mozart, Haydn etc.
