Just a week to go now till our Night Shift in-a-pub event on 8 September, and here’s a little Spotify playlist giving a flavour of some of the music that’ll be featured. Enjoy!

Later this week we’re reunited with our Principal Artist, Vladimir Jurowski to start rehearsals for a tour with him. The first two dates of the tour take in San Sebastian and Edinburgh (for the festival), with a programme of Weber, Mendelssohn (the violin concerto with Alina Ibragimova) and Liszt’s epic Faust Symphony. While you may know the Weber and Mendelssohn, you may well not know the Liszt, so we’ve put together a Spotify playlist of the entire programme for your listening pleasure. More on the tour in due course…

Baroque Contrasted imageNext week we go Baroque crazy with our festival at Kings Place,  an action-packed five days of concerts, talks, workshops and more. We’re playing some music from the big names of the Baroque, but the Thursday and Friday concerts also contain a few rarities. Any fans of the composer Finger here? Or William Williams?

Well, over the next few days we’re going to be posting up some potted facts about these lesser-known composers, and we’ve also put some playlists together for you on Spotify, so you can preview some of the music. We’ll also try and find some Youtube links for those of you who aren’t using Spotify yet.

Here are the Spotify links – enjoy!

Hi everyone, my name’s David and I’m the new Communications Intern in the OAE office. I’ve been here a couple of weeks now but this is my first blog post on here!

I’m really looking forward to the CPE Bach concert tomorrow night at Queen Elizabeth Hall – CPE Bach is so rarely played and it’ll be great to hear it live! To get you all in the mood for tomorrow, I’ve created a playlist on Spotify – if you’d like to have a listen click here to go to Spotify and have an explore.

See you at the concert tomorrow,

David Hopkins
