The Academy of Ancient Music brings to life music from Monteverdi to Mozart in the way it was first intended to be heard.

Its historically informed approach was ground-breaking when the orchestra was founded in 1973 by scholar-conductor Christopher Hogwood, and AAM remains at the forefront of the early music scene today under the dynamic leadership of Richard Egarr. In the 2018–19 season AAM looks forward to Michael Collins making his debut on period clarinet, Nigel Kennedy re-invigorating Bach, and a 300th-anniversary performance of Handel's masterpiece, Brockes Passion.
