Concordia appears regularly at major British music festivals and throughout Europe, as well as at Wigmore Hall, the Purcell Room and Queen Elizabeth Hall, where they played in the first Royal Festival Hall Early Music Festival. Concordia has gained a special reputation for its imaginatively themed programmes, often exploring links with the other arts. As well as the magical English music of the golden age and a wide range of Renaissance and Baroque repertoire from Italy, Spain, Germany and France, Concordia’s innovative progamming has led to performances combining music with newly commissioned dance, poetry and drama, including a set of monologues for Elizabeth I premiered by the actress Penelope Keith at the Covent Garden Festival, which has gone on tour around the country. Other collaborations have included work with Will Kemp of the Adventures in Motion Pictures dance company and the poet Glyn Maxwell, and numerous concert appearances, radio broadcasts and recordings have been linked to major exhibitions at the National Gallery, the Royal Academy of Arts and elsewhere. Concordia’s involvement with the National Gallery’s blockbusting Titian exhibition, for example, led to two recordings and a major UK tour exploring the work of Andrea Gabrieli and his contemporaries.
