Wigmore Hall Residency 2016/17
We are delighted to announce that Arcangelo will have a Residency at Wigmore Hall in the 16-17 Sesason. Only 6 years old by then, Arcangelo has quickly established itself with concerts and recordings that have drawn high praise from critics and concertgoers for their vivid interpretation of Baroque and Classical Repertoire.
Led by founder and Artistic Director Jonathan Cohen, Arcangelo’s playing has been described as filled with ‘quasi-improvisatory brilliance and fire’ (Gramophone Magazine, January 2015) and their sold out Wigmore Hall appearances have been noted for their ‘…scrupulous preparation, allied to a pleasure in the freedom of performance’ (The Times, June 2014).
In this season Arcangelo will perform four concerts at the Wigmore Hall, the first of which will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3. The concert dates are:
14 December 2016: J.S. Bach ‘Mourning Cantatas’
Lydia Teuscher soprano
Alex Potter counter tenor
Andrew Tortise tenor
Thomas Bauer baritone
13 January 2017: J.S. Bach Harpsichord Concerti
Kristian Bezuidenhout harpsichord
5 May 2017: Biber, Schmelzer and Buxtehude
Sophie Gent violin
Jonathan Manson gamba
Thomas Dunford, lute
21 July 2017: Couperin and Clérambault

Booking will open in line with Wigmore Hall’s booking period opening schedule.
