Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment & Podger

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment has specialised for more than 30 years in playing Baroque music in its original form – with the instruments used back when the music was written. It is equally important for them to maintain an open mind regarding the music – and they therefore also work with violinists such as Rachel Podger, who enjoys exploring the world of music.

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment saw the light of day in 1986 because a number of musicians wanted to work more intensely and creatively with (primarily) Baroque music. The musicians wanted to set the agenda themselves and therefore enlisted conductors and soloists as required. This formed a democratic and very dynamic orchestra that for years has been recognised as one of the best in the world and is based in the Southbank Centre in London and at the Glyndebourne Festival.
