A dazzling contemporary re-imagination of the colourfully creative new sound-world for the music of Bach pioneered in the 60s by original synth genius Wendy Carlos, performed live by four fearless synth-players.
Imagine if Vivaldi was a folk-fiddler, Purcell a protest-singer, or Bach a techno-geek ... Baroque at the Edge invites leading musicians from all genres to take the music of the Baroque and see where it leads them.
No rules, no boundaries – just Baroque music set loose.
