About · Brecon Baroque
Rachel founded the dynamic ensemble Brecon Baroque in 2007. Initially resident at her annual Brecon Baroque Festival, the group has gone on to tour Europe and Japan. Brecon Baroque has recorded two discs for Channel Classics, the latest, Bach Double and Triple Concertos, received critical acclaim; a Choc du Monde de la Musique and CD of the week on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, and US radio station WQXR. Their debut recording, Bach Violin Concertos, was quickly hailed as a bench-mark recording of these works.
Brecon Baroque specialises in the music of J.S. Bach and his contemporaries, mostly as a one-to-a-part ensemble based on the Cafe Zimmerman ensemble which Bach himself directed. They also appear as a small baroque orchestra for Vivaldi, Telemann, Purcell and Handel.
Brecon Baroque gives recitals, collaborates with other artists and orchestras and can be anything from 4 to 24 strong. To discuss programmes or project ideas please contact us.
