A musical Portrait of Henry - Barokksolistene

Henry Purcell stands firmly within the canon of British music as one of the first significant names to survive across the centuries. The variety of music is astonishing and particularly his music for opera and theatre has stood the test of time. Bjarte Eike gathers a wide-ranging programme which reveals the variety in Purcell’s output and shines a light on the grace, beauty, energy and clarity that epitomises this composer.
