Orchestra of the
Age of Enlightenment
Orchestra of the Age Enlightenment is recognised as one of the world’s foremost
period instrument ensembles.
Formed in 1986 as a self-governing orchestra, the OAE has always maintained
a player-led approach to artistic planning and programming, working with a
range of distinguished guest conductors and in 1992, Sir Simon Rattle and
Frans Brüggen were appointed Principal Guest Conductors.
In 1997 the work of the London Classical Players was absorbed by the OAE,
and Sir Roger Norrington joined the roster of conductors. The Orchestra, as
an Associate of London's Royal Festival Hall, gratefully acknowledges the
financial support that SBC gives the Orchestra through its association with
