The Marian Consort – 'Breaking the Rules'

Baroque at the Edge

A long-awaited first London performance for Clare Norburn’s acclaimed concert-drama exploring the last agonies of the 17th-century composer Carlo Gesualdo.

Having jealously murdered his wife and her lover, Gesualdo poured his pain into deeply and unconventionally expressive music of torture and regret.

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.
