Concertante of London (Instrumental Ensemble)

Founded: 1964 - London, England

Concertante Of London is a versatile one to a part Baroque Ensemble lead by Madeleine Easton and directed by Sir Nicholas Jackson with young players and singers chosen from the cream of interpreters of the new generation. They are a flexible ensemble capable of performing works such as J.S. Bachís Brandenburg and Harpsichord Concertos, Cantatas, Antonio Vivaldiís Gloria and Nicholas Jacksonís reconstruction of William Lawesí Masque The Triumph of Peace, which they first performed at The Banqueting House, Whitehall in 2004 and again in 2009 where its initial rendering took place in the presence of King Charles I in 1634. They have been engaged to appear at The Banqueting House annually since 2004 and appear there for the 8th successive year in 2011.

They have frequently played for the London Chamber Music Society, including at Londonís newest Concert Hall, Kingís Place, the Garrick Club, at the Holywell Music Room, Oxford, at Bangor University, North Wales, in Menorca and annually at the Handel House Museum in London.

They often perform Nicholas Jacksonís new realisation of J.S. Bachís Musical Offering (BWV 1079) with just four players, and in 2009 their CD of this work was released on SOMM together with the first CD recording of Gustav Leonhardtís reconstruction of J.S. Bachís unfinished Concerto for harpsichord, oboe, strings & continuo No. 8 in D minor, BWV 1059.
