“Find anything exciting happening in period opera in the UK and Curnyn will be involved, whether it’s conducting at the Wanamaker or ENO, recording Handel or directing his own projects.” The Spectator, November 2015
It's now just over a month to go until we return to St John's Smith Square for what promises to be a thrilling melting pot of orchestral favourites.

This was a concert to be treasured… The Early Opera Company’s sparkling concert performance … was a tonic… The company celebrates Handel’s animation to perfection.
The Early Opera Company has been on a roll recently with its Handel… Curnyn, directing from the harpsichord, led a detailed, precise and zippy performance from his ensemble.
Curnyn draws glorious colours from his orchestra and makes the ten-strong period band sound like a parallel aural universe.
The whole thing was a classy entertainment, and hugely enjoyable.
Christian Curnyn and his string band shape every note with smiling buoyant grace.
Early Opera Company has versatility as a key attribute. Not tied down by a single home, it gets involved in joint presentations.
