Summer 2019 – Opera hat-trick

Activities for the rest of this year include Julian conducting both settings of Congreve's delectable libretto of Semele: by Eccles (1707) and by Handel (1743), and recording Eccles’ enchanting version with the Academy of Ancient Music. Between these Semele sorties comes a concert and recording of Stephen Dodgson's Suffolk opera Margaret Catchpole at Snape Maltings with Naxos. What with performances of all six of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos with Florilegium and a recital with Dame Emma Kirkby, it's all go!
