Norrington and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

Roger Norrington is one of the best-known champions of the use of period instruments and understanding correct performance style for music of all periods. In this video he works with England's Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment playing on period instruments. The music is by C.P.E. Bach, one of the most gifted and successful of J.S. Bach's sons. Unfortunately, C.P.E. Bach's music is rarely played today. Norrington and the members of the OAE set out to rectify the situation.

More from Norrington on my companion video this week.
