Founded in 2018 by the international violinist Asuka Sumi, Otley Baroque provides the finest live concert with both renowned and up-and-coming musicians across the UK.
In January, Otley Baroque invites Farsley-born Cornetto player Nicholas Emmerson and two young talents from London and present Venetian baroque music at the time of Monteverdi, played on historical instruments.
Asuka said: “Nick Emmerson makes a triumphant return to his hometown after a successful career in the Netherlands and Germany.
“I have also invited two young and talented musicians from the Bellotti Ensemble in London, who have both graduated recently from the Royal College of Music. It will be an unmissable evening as these talents converge in the discovery of exhilarating Italian baroque music, which traces its origin from folkloric tunes to Mediterranean dances.”
