London Festival of Baroque Music
13 – 21 May 2022
St John’s Smith Square and Westminster Abbey
Venice takes centre-stage at St John's Smith Square in this year's festival, 'Between the Land and the Sea', offering grandiose celebrations for the crowning of a doge by Gabrieli Consort and the chamber songs of Barbara Strozzi sung by mezzo Helen Charlston. The Marian Consort join Bojan Čičić's Illyria Consort in a musical voyage around the Adriatic coast, while Siglo de Oro and the Gesualdo Six look at the legacies of Renaissance composers Lassus and Josquin on the city. The festival closes with Vivaldi's Four Seasons under Rachel Podger's Brecon Baroque. Book your tickets now!
