'The superb new concert hall at Kings Place – the first in London for 25 years – has opened an exciting new chapter for the London Chamber Music Society, which can trace its origins to Victorian music making in London in the 1870s, and the regular Sunday Concerts that developed at South Place and then the Conway Hall from 1929. The inheritance of the Sunday Concerts is special, and our Concert Series aims to continue that rich legacy – which has long been part of the musical life-blood of the capital – by bringing the very best classical chamber music to London audiences at affordable prices.'

What does this mean? Well, over the years instruments and techniques have changed. We try to be authentic, by using instruments and playing styles similar to those the composer would have been familiar with. You get to hear what Vivaldi actually wrote, not a modern version of it. You might be wondering what difference this makes to the actual sound. Well, it tends to be a more edgy sound than polished modern orchestras. It’s a gutsy and definitely a less “polite” sound. Plus the OAE is well known for its sheer enthusiasm for music, which comes across at every performance ...’
