Association of British Orchestras

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

Contact details

Acland Burghley School 93 Burghley Road
Just over three decades ago, a group of London musicians took a good look at that curious institution we call the orchestra, and decided to start again from scratch. They began by throwing out the rulebook. Put a single conductor in charge? No way. Specialise in repertoire of a particular era? Too restricting. Perfect a work and then move on? Too lazy. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment was born.
