Die schöne Müllerin and The Alehouse Sessions at Middle Temple Hall, Thursday 18 November
Reviewed by David Karlin of Bachtrack
Nothing quite prepares you for the riot of musical colour that Barokksolistene call their Alehouse Sessions, a dizzying kaleidoscope of musical genres and moods. Crossover is difficult to pull off: you have to be an incredibly talented and inquisitive musician to avoid sounding like a numpty to an afficionado of a genre you weren't originally trained in. Barokksolistene are packed with musicians who do it superbly.
