New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall, Boston

Purcell: Scenes from King Arthur and The Fairy Queen

Andreas Scholl, one of the world’s most cherished countertenors, returns to BEMF, appearing with The English Concert led by Harry Bicket as they make their BEMF début in a program of Baroque gems that features songs and scenes by Henry Purcell. Founded in 1972, The English Concert and its gifted instrumentalists have built a reputation for invigorating performances full of polish and panache; Andreas Scholl is in the highest demand for his beautiful, unique and vivid tone and nuanced interpretations.
