The Fifths

Laurence Cummings, the Academy’s William Crotch Professor of Historical Performance, returns to the Academy to direct students in a programme of music spanning nearly a century. The programme reflects changing styles of composition from the suite and concerto grosso to early manifestations of the symphony, performed on period instruments. Each piece in today’s performance is the fifth in a series of works.
