Friday 13 January wasn’t an unlucky day for the OAE, as we had some great audience feedback following our concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall with Robert Howarth directing a programme celebrating the music of Giovanni Gabrieli on the 400th anniversary of his death.

Here are the press reviews:

Train home after Gabrieli from @theoae @southbankcentre felt wrong, should have been a gondola. Such glorious music I still floated home.

John Sandell @johnsandell
Gorgeous evening of music by Gabrieli + chums: @robhowarth, lovely Julia Doyle, @dauchincloss & the best sackbutts & cornetts of @theoae 🙂

Daniel Auchincloss @dauchincloss
Had a rather splendid evening of wonderful music with @robhowarth and @theoae – very much looking forward to the second performance in Feb!
