The reviews are in!

It has been an absolutely incredible weekend for Istante at the Hampstead Baroque Festival!
Lots of fun, great musicians, lovely people and exciting music making… A big heartfelt Thank You to John Henry Baker and Nicola Barbagli for organising this madness!

And we even received a great review from Andrew Benson Wilson for our All Bach concert:

Of course we’re already in the planning stages for our next festival! It looks like we will tackle some classical repertoire in due course. So watch this space for news!
