BREMF wants to take you on a journey

The theme of this year's Brighton Early Music Festival (24 October to 9 November 2014) is Cities: Musical centres and the journeys between them

So that the festival opens with Adrian Chandler and La Serenissima celebrating Venice in La Venezia Festeggiante with music by Vivaldi, plus Albinoni, Caldara and Porta. The Sixteen and conductor Eamonn Dougan take us to 17th century Poland where Italian musicians were influential at the Royal Court in Warsaw. And the Little Baraoque Company journey to Leipzig where Bach and Telemann meet at Cafe Zimmerman.

Musica Secreta take us into the world of Paris Convents with music by Charpentier, Lully and Couperin, and still in Paris Le Jardin Secret will be presenting music, dance and drama from 17th and 18th century Paris. The closing concert is back in London, where we celebrate with Purcell and Handel. Along the way there are Spanish Pilgrimages with Resonet and the Telling, whilst L'Avventura explore trade routes between Portugal, Africa and Brazil.
