Barokksolistene: The Alehouse Sessions

07:30 pm

Described as ‘irresistible’ by The Times, the Alehouse Sessions is an insight into 17th century tavern, from Purcell overtures to English sea shanties to Scandinavian folk songs.

'It is exhilarating. It’s a very theatrical show [with] dancing, chanting, craft beer and unimpeachable virtuosity' The Guardian

'Nothing quite prepares you for the riot of musical colour that Barokksolistene call their Alehouse Sessions, a dizzying kaleidoscope of musical genres and moods.' Bachtrack

'The musicians swigged beer on stage as they played, sang and danced. The performances were simply terrific throughout. Tremendous stuff.' The Guardian

'Barokksolistene is an alchemical miracle of an ensemble, a collective of virtuosos whose instinctive, playful communication and delight in one another’s skill amplifies their individual performances' Gramophone
