The Beggar’s Ensemble
With The Beggar’s to Londen
After winning three prizes at the renowned Van Wassenaer Concours in 2018, The Beggar’s Ensemble landed a well-deserved tour. This French ensemble brings 18th-century London to life, where the musical agenda was set by such composers as John Christopher Pepusch, William Corbett and Richard Jones.

Toccata in d-minor for harpsichord (uit: Suits or Lessons I, 1732)
