On Monday 30 September the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment launches its new season with a concert of Musical Fireworks from Rameau and Handel, conducted by William Christie with soprano Sandrine Piau as soloist.  The season continues a programme marking Corelli's 300th anniversary including a new work by Clare Connors, Corelli Leaves, then pianist Robert Levin returns for a programme of music by Mendelssohn, Schubert and Beethoven. Their last concert in 2013 is a concert performance of Offenbach's Fantasio in collaboration of Opera Rare, with Marlis Petersen, Sarah Connolly and Victoria Simmonds conducted by Sir Mark Elder.
