David Nice, The Arts Desk’s classical music writer, sums up, on Dec 26 what he considers his top classical concert experiences of 2015. Along with a collection of great performers and a repertoire spanning from symphonic to chamber music, we are happy to find Barokksolistene’s September performance at the Wanamaker’s playhouse: ‘…but the year’s wildest revelry, and one which should be on DVD so everyone can watch it at this time of year and, if they so feel, dance along, was the “Alehouse Concert” of Bjarte Eike and his Barokksolistene plus friends.’. Read his full article here.
