Written specially for the London-based baroque ensemble Ceruleo, Clare Norburn’s latest concert-drama takes us back to 1695 and inside the fevered head of Henry Purcell as he lies dying. 

Dream-like memories of the Plague, the Fire of London, family life and the vibrant Restoration stage merge seamlessly with his exquisite vocal and instrumental music.

Baroque at the Edge, the innovative no-rules festival returns for a second year to ask leading musicians from all backgrounds to take baroque music and see where it leads them. No programme notes, no lectures: all you need to know is how to listen.
