The Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century is celebrating Christmas in style this year. A Baroque program to lick your fingers at: Handel, Vivaldi, J.S. Bach and Delalande and, of course, Corelli, sung by the magnificent Nardus Williams and conducted by David Bates.
Nardus Williams received an international opera award for Rising Star at the end of 2022 in Milan. Never before has the British "one to look out for" (guardian) been heard in the Netherlands. Together with early music specialist conductor and clavicinist David Bates, they guarantee a special evening to usher in Christmas. Their joint performance of works by Purcell at the BBC Proms last year received high praise from the international press.
