With an unsurpassed reputation for inspiring performances of baroque and classical music, The English Concert ranks among the finest chamber orchestras in the world. Such standing is the result of tireless work at home, on the road and in the studio since 1973, guided along the way by founder Trevor Pinnock, his successor Andrew Manze, and current Artistic Director Harry Bicket.

We also enjoy working with several distinguished guest directors, including harpsichordists Laurence Cummings, Christian Curnyn and violinist Rachel Podger, and our award-winning discography of over 100 recordings features masterworks from Bach to Mozart as well as some of the most renowned artists in recent history. Ground-breaking collaborations in musical theatre and opera are also at the forefront of our thinking, and form part of our longstanding relationships with exceptional artists and venues. These include New York’s Carnegie Hall who have commissioned a series of annual dramatic Handel productions.
