About

Famed for the crystalline beauty of his voice and the breath-taking daring of his artistry, British countertenor Iestyn Davies returned to Wigmore Hall with a programme reaching back to the Restoration Court, to reveal the wealth of musical riches of late 17th-century London.

For this recital, Iestyn Davies and the ensemble stepped beyond the bounds of convention to explore the works with fresh insight, delivering an invigorating yet refined and delicate performance.
