A Curious Mind

For their first visit to Beverley, the newly appointed BBC New Generation Baroque Ensemble focus their musical lens on a curious and wellconnected local clergyman and musician – Edward Finch. Specialising in making musical arrangements of the most popular music of his time, including Henry Purcell’s wonderful ‘Golden Sonata’, Ensemble Augelletti tell Finch’s singular story and they perform some of his compositions and arrangements alongside music by his friends Purcell, Handel, and Geminiani.

This is a group whose enthusiasm is infectious” Martin Dreyer, York Press


The New Generation Baroque Ensemble is supported by BBC Radio 3, the Royal College of Music and the National Centre for Early Music.

Please note there is a £1.50 administration fee per transaction.
