Harry Bicket on the Development of Period Instrument Performance

Harry Bicket brings The English Concert back to Carnegie Hall on February 24 for a performance of Handel's "Radamisto"—an opera of lust, revenge, and the power of virtue.

Here, Maestro Bicket discusses the development of period instrument performance during the past several decades. Bicket reveals his belief that attitudes towards the practice should be revised, allowing ensembles like The English Concert to be judged directly against orchestras that perform on modern instruments.
