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.
Dr Pepusch was a prominent figure in the ‘original’ Academy of Ancient Music, which met for the first time in 1726. 'Ancient' was originally defined as before 1600, but newer composers - including Handel - were included before long. This AAM met at the Crown and Anchor Tavern on The Strand in London, and its last series of subscription concerts came in 1797.
