About the event

We’re presenting music from our upcoming debut album: Musical Wanderlust - Charles Burney’s European Travels in search of harmony A Baroque musical voyage following Burney on his journey: a kaleidoscope of European Baroque music with compositions from each of the countries he visited, some famous, others seldom-heard, interspersed with readings of his original 18th century diary entries. Highlights are the breathtaking virtuosity of Vivaldi's stylus phantasticus chamber concerto La Notte, a new arrangement of the German folk song Kraut und Rüben based on Dietrich Buxtehude's La Capricciosa and Bach's Goldberg variation Quodlibet, a choral version of a Dutch sailors' prayer Den man de quart staande and, last but very much not least, a cantata by Charles Burney himself called The despairing shepherd.

Winners of the Göttingen Händel Competition and the Maurizio Pratola competition in 2022, Apollo's Cabinet bring a signature mix of acting, dancing, poetry and silliness to bring historical performance to modern audiences. They have furthermore won the Brian Nisbet Prize for their fusion of music and poetry and most recently the F. J. Aumann Prize of the International Biber Competition for their innovative approach to Baroque music. They have recently been selected for performance at IYAP Antwerp and Utrecht fabulous fringe and are part of the REMA Remarkable scheme for young ensembles.
