The European Union Chamber Orchestra make their return to Birmingham International Piano Festival having performed in the inaugural festival in 2014. We continue the theme of period performances following on from our opening lecture recital with an evening of Baroque and Classical works featuring soloists from the orchestra and guest harpsichordist, Steven Devine.

Since its formation in 1981 the orchestra has drawn members from the wealth of virtuosic musicians across Europe and remains one of the leading period performance ensembles in existence today.
