In the words of the BBC:
Harry Bicket and the English Concert perform a programme that surveys early 18th-century London’s operatic taste. The suites from Purcell’s tragicomic semi-opera Dioclesian and his more widely know masque The Fairy Queen sit alongside selections from two of Handel’s most jealousy infused operas – Ariodante and Hercules. English mezzo-soprano Alice Coote joins the English Concert with whom she has a long association.
