Lucie Horsch and Richard Egarr

Academy of Ancient Music

Lucie Horsch AMM 2018 landscape

Young recorder-player Lucie Horsch is already in demand internationally as a soloist and, with a critically acclaimed solo album to her name, has launched what promises to be a distinguished career.

She joins the Academy of Ancient Music and its music director Richard Egarr for a programme of concertos and transcriptions that explore the full emotional gamut of baroque music, from the heart-breaking beauty of Bach’s ‘Erbarme dich’ to the many extrovert moods of Vivaldi’s ‘La notte’ concerto.

Now in his 12th season as music director of the AAM, harpsichordist Richard Egarr still continues to surprise and excite audiences with his technique and his instinctive musicality. Here he demonstrates both in two of Bach’s finest keyboard concertos – the thoughtful Concerto in G minor, with its pioneering reappraisal of the relationship between soloist and orchestra, and the ebullient D major concerto – better known in its original form as the composer’s E major violin concerto.
