In video: some of our fave OAE moments

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment have a reputation for being some of the liveliest, most energetic performers on the early music scene. The rule book goes out the window as they constantly challenge preconceptions of how early music should be experienced, and continually introducing new audiences to the finest baroque repertoire. Being our Associate Artists this summer, we thought we’d select a few of our favourite OAE videos to show you why we love them so much.

We’ll start by watching OAE horn player Martin Lawrence wrestle with a garden hose, some shears and gaffa tape to make a playable horn!

Find out what sets their Night Shift series apart from traditional concert hall experiences, as the OAE bring baroque music to pubs, clubs and unusual spaces across the country.

See an action-packed video of what the OAE do best, featuring some brilliant string playing, interactive performances, and a man trying to fit inside a cello case…
