Thames Concerts' 2020/21 Series welcomes Endelienta Baroque. Thames Concerts is one of London's premiere recital series (established in the 1960s). Despite ongoing challenges to the whole music industry relating to the covid-19 situation, we are proud that our concerts will continue to take place in a safe, regulated environment, the home of the series, St Andrew’s Church, Surbiton.

Founded at St Endellion, Cornwall, in 2017, Endelienta Baroque is a chamber ensemble specialising in the performance on historically appropriate instruments of a wide variety of Baroque music. Since the group's formation, they have given concerts ranging from chamber music performances in small, intimate settings, to collaborative performances of larger vocal works such as Bach's Mass in B minor. Previous chamber programmes have included Bach: Cantatas for Advent at St. Cuthbert’s Church, Earl’s Court, Bach chamber and choral works in the chapel of King’s College, Cambridge, Baroque Treasures: Music for a Summer’s Evening at St James’s, Hampton Hill, and The Genius of Handel at St Endellion, North Cornwall.

Across the 2020-2021 season, Endelienta Baroque are touring a programme of French baroque music, inspired (and perhaps motivated) by Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s famous rebuttal of French music of the mid-eighteenth century: surveying half a century of music, Jean-Jacques Rousseau accused the French Baroque of possessing, “crude harmony”, of “lacking expression”, and of amounting to nothing more than a “continual squealing”. Confounding Rousseau’s polemic judgements, Endelienta explore some lesser-known jewels of the French Baroque, including vocal and instrumental music by Rameau, Leclair, Marais, and Couperin.
