Established as one of the world’s most gifted recorder players, Erik Bosgraaf’s richly varied musical background – including a period spent playing in a rock band – underpins his omnivorous approach to music-making.  This adventurousness and versatility makes him a natural partner for Aurora Orchestra, which has built its reputation on musical eclecticism and collaboration across artistic frontiers.  The result of their partnership is a truly unique Bach Unwrapped programme which includes the ravishing concerto BWV 1053 (originally for oboe), new Bach transcriptions created by Bosgraaf for this performance, and the world premiere performance of Anna Meredith’s ‘Origami Songs’, a new work for chamber orchestra and recorder by one of the UK’s most celebrated young composers.
