Brecon Baroque (Instrumental Ensemble)

Founded: 2007 - England

The dynamic ensemble Brecon Baroque was founded in 2007 by violinist Rachel Podger as resident ensemble at her annual Brecon Baroque Festival. The international line-up consists of some of some of the leading lights in the period-instrument world, such as cellist Alison McGillivray, flautist Katie Bircher, oboist Alexandra Bellamy and violist Jane Rogers, as well as some of Rachel Podger's “star” former students who now occupy leading positions in many of Europe's finest ensembles.

Brecon Baroque specializes in the music of J.S.Bach and his contemporaries, often as a one-to-a-part ensemble but also as a small Baroque orchestra. Over the last two years the ensemble has performed several of J.S. Bach's Cantatas for solo soprano with Elin Manahan Thomas and will do so again in 2011. Future recording plans include J.S. Bach's Art of Fugue (BWV 1080) and Georg Philipp Telemann's great collection Tafelmusik. The ensemble's London debut is at the Wigmore Hall on December 22, 2010.
