AAM Concerts

Christoph Sietzen & AAM
Experience worlds colliding as old meets new in this audacious new programme devised by Christoph Sietzen and the Academy of Ancient Music.

Expect creative sparks to fly as period instruments are joined with percussion for virtuosic arrangements of music spanning nearly 600 years – by JS Bach, Geminiani, Xenakis, Weiss and others – all presented with the trademark energy and effervescence for which both artists are renowned.
