This was the first of a number of concerts by the Orchestra Of The Age Of Enlightenment that i've bought tickets for and i was slightly nervous that they wouldn't live up to expectations but i needn't have worried. Vocals were provided by the Italian soprano, Roberta Invernizzi, who has a fine voice - and i say that as someone who's not particularly fond of operatic sopranos.
As for the programme it was interesting. Pergolesi apparently died young before he could really make his mark but the pieces we heard by him were lovely. Best of all though was Mozart's Symphony No. 25. It rocked!
The only disappointment of the night was the way in which a chunk of the audience were in such a hurry to leave when it came time to give our applause. Bearing in mind the fact that it was only about a quarter past nine it wasn't as if they likely to miss the last train home. It was just rude.
