  • Xavier Sabata countertenor
  • Armonia Atenea
  • George Petrou director, harpsichord

Armonia Atenea, equally at home on period and modern instruments, has flourished under George Petrou’s artistic leadership.

The ensemble returns to Wigmore Hall with Xavier Sabata and a programme coloured by spectacular vocal virtuosity. The Catalan countertenor’s Bad Guys album, a homage to Handel, was hailed by the Guardian as one of ‘the most intelligent and striking recital discs of recent years’.
