The Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century just finished its Frans Brüggen In Memoriam Tour, three concerts with
three conductors in The Netherlands. The inspired collaboration with our friend and founding father came to an end, but Brüggens inspiration will remain with us and lead us in the years to come.
Kenneth Montgomery is invited to conduct tour 123, our November project with the mezzo-soprano Rosanne van Sandwijk and the pianist Finghin Collins. We will perform works by Händel, Haydn, Mozart and John Field. The tour brings us to The Netherlands, Belgium and for the first time in our history to Ireland.
