Ha - I adore it as a venue and it's an easy bus ride for me!
I'm going to book a few concerts but the highlight for me is Nigel Kennedy plays Bach. I'm not a massive fan of his but I've got a feeling this is going to be epic -
Fri 14 Dec 7.30pm Academy of Ancient Music: Nigel Kennedy plays Bach JS Bach Orchestral Suite No 2 in B minor BWV 1067 Violin Concerto No 2 in E major BWV 1042 Violin Partita No 1 in B minor BWV 1002 (orch Kennedy) Concerto for two violins in D minor BWV 1043 Academy of Ancient Music Richard Egarr director & harpsichord Nigel Kennedy violin Thomas Gould violin
My credit card took a battering this morning booking tickets for the new season at the Barbican.
Very pleased to have got tickets for the Nigel Kennedy Bach. Also really looking forward to seeing newcomer Sheku Kanneh-Mason's cello recital. He was fabulous when I saw him winning BBC Young Musician 2016.
