Composers, innovators and entrepreneurs in London (Walsh) and Amsterdam (Roger) revolutionised the European music publishing industry and widened access to music and audiences across Europe in the 18th Century. You will find that when EUBO and violinist Rachel Podger perform this repertoire some spontaneous decisions might well be taken in the true spirit of the time!

Performances from 11 to 19 May 2016. Find out more about the dates and concert venues in EUBO’s Calendar.
