The World's Greatest Music
The late Christopher Hogwood created the Academy of Ancient Music in 1973 with the aim of energising Baroque and Classical music. We take a look back through the ensemble's history.
Hogwood's ensemble played instruments different from more modern violins. They're played at a slightly lower pitch and use gut strings rather than steel strings. Here they are performing at Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire in 1979.
