Principal Players of Aurora Orchestra
Established as one of the world's most gifted recorder players, Erik Bosgraaf's richly varied musical background - including a period spent playing in a rock band - underpins his omnivorous approach to music-making.
This adventurousness and versatility makes him a natural partner for Aurora Orchestra, which has built its reputation on musical eclecticism and collaboration across artistic frontiers. The result of their partnership is a truly unique Bach Unwrapped programme which includes the ravishing concerto BWV 1053 (originally for oboe), new Bach transcriptions created by Bosgraaf for this performance, and the world premiere performance of a new work for chamber orchestra and recorder by Anna Meredith, one of the UK's most celebrated young composers.
