The OAE is much more than one of the world's pre-eminent period instrument ensembles. It works regularly with conductors who specialise in both early music and the modern repertoire, and has explored the work of composers from Bach to Mahler, Handel to Borodin. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment pairs a programme of popular favourites by Mozart and Berlioz with some rarely heard gems by MÃ©hul and Cherubini. Little known he may be now, but Cherubini was highly rated by none other than Beethoven, with the composer regarding him as the greatest of his contemporaries.
