Biography

With an unsurpassed reputation for inspiring performances of baroque and classical music, The English Concert ranks among the finest chamber orchestras in the world. Such standing is the result of tireless work at home, on the road and in the studio since 1973, guided along the way by founder Trevor Pinnock, his successor Andrew Manze, and current Artistic Director Harry Bicket. From Bach to Purcell and Handel to Mozart, our award-winning discography features well over 100 recordings with some of the most renowned artists in recent history. We also enjoy working with several distinguished guest directors, including this season harpsichordist Laurence Cummings and violinist Rachel Podger. Ground-breaking collaborations are at the forefront of our thinking and part of our longstanding relationships with exceptional artists and venues. These include our flourishing commission from New York's Carnegie Hall to present a series of operas-in-concert by Handel.
