Bjarte Eike & Jon Balke

Baroque at the Edge

A new collaboration between two of Norway’s most open-minded and exciting artists.

Baroque violinist Bjarte Eike (known for his ‘alehouse sessions’ with his own group Barokksolistene) collaborates with Jon Balke, jazz pianist, composer and founder of the innovative Magnetic North Orchestra.

Imagine if Bach was a jazzman, Vivaldi a folk-fiddler, or Handel a minimalist…

The Baroque at the Edge festival invites leading musicians ranging from classical to world, jazz and folk to take the music of the Baroque and see where it leads them.

No rules, no programme notes, no lectures: all you need to know is how to listen.

Baroque at the Edge is a brand-new event from the creators of the highly successful London Festival of Baroque Music – Artistic Director Lindsay Kemp and Manager Lucy Bending – working in partnership with LSO St Luke’s.
