Pioneers in historically informed performance, conductor John Eliot Gardiner and his esteemed English Baroque Soloists are best known to US audiences through their meticulously conceived, award-winning recordings of Monteverdi, Bach, Beethoven, and dramatic works of the Baroque and Classical eras. On an exceedingly rare stateside tour, Gardiner, a two-time Grammy winner, leads the period-instrument ensemble he founded more than 40 years ago in a bracing program of Mozart and Haydn.

Haydn’s well-loved Drumroll Symphony is a study in drama and suspense; Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante is a joyful conversation between violin and viola soloists and the orchestra; and the composer’s Symphony No. 39 is an ebullient late-period opus that reveals supreme craft and ingenuity.

“Gardiner’s unquenchable energy and probing scholarship are linked to a powerful musical intuition…. For all his attention to detail, he keeps a firm hold on the overall architecture; there is never a letup in dramatic continuity” (The New York Times).
