“Arguably the most important and influential
Early Music event in the world.” —BBC Radio 3
20/21 Season: More Virtual Events Announced!
Spring 2021 Performances
Originally scheduled for our in-person season, three outstanding ensembles, Quicksilver, Stile Antico and Ensemble Correspondances, will create unique performances that audiences can enjoy in their own homes.
Enjoy a dazzling musical tour across Baroque Europe—from the birth of the virtuoso violin in northern Italy through its rich development in the courts of Germany.
BEMF at Home
Enjoy a special excerpt from Campra's Le Carnaval de Venise, featuring Orfeo nell'Inferi—an "opera-within-an-opera" based on the Orpheus myth.
We remain committed to compensating the world-class artists who bring these performances to life, now more than ever. While we will present these four events free of charge, donations are deeply appreciated. We are profoundly grateful for the support of our devoted fans and friends around the world.
