Academy of Ancient Music


  • The Academy of Ancient Music energises baroque and classical music by playing the repertoire in the style and spirit it was first performed in. Resident at the University of Cambridge and Associate Ensemble at the Barbican Centre in London, over the past 40 years the AAM has toured across six continents and in 2013 launched its own record label, AAM Records.

    Intermusica has a close relationship with the AAM through representing the group’s Artistic Director, Richard Egarr. In 2012 Intermusica oversaw the AAM’s tour of China, taking in cities including Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

  • 英国古乐协会(AAM)以用本真而纯粹的方式演奏巴洛克音乐、传递巴洛克精神而活跃在舞台上。作为伦敦巴比肯艺术中心的附属乐团、剑桥大学的常驻乐团,AAM在全球六大洲都举办过巡演,并已经于2013年发行了自己唱片标签:AAM Records。

  • Founded in 1973 by Christopher Hogwood, the Academy of Ancient Music, over the next three decades the AAM’s fame spread to every corner of the globe as it built up a huge discography which now totals over 300 recordings — Brit and Grammy award-winning recordings of the great baroque masterworks; celebrated opera releases starring Cecilia Bartoli, Dame Emma Kirkby and Dame Joan Sutherland; pioneering cycles of the Mozart and Beethoven symphonies.

    Today, led by Richard Egarr who succeeded Hogwood as Music Director in 2006, the orchestra has continued to perform across the globe. AAM also continues to work with an increasingly diverse roster of guest directors — Japanese Bach expert Masaaki Suzuki, acclaimed Italian violinist-virtuoso Giuliano Carmignola; conductors Bernard Labadie, Paul Goodwin, Stephen Cleobury and Stephen Layton — ensuring that fresh ideas and approaches continually inspire the group.

  • 1973年著名已故音乐家、指挥大师克里斯托弗·霍格伍德建立了英国古乐协会,在接下来的30年中,AAM的声誉已经通过他们录制的300多张唱片传遍了全球,这些唱片之中更包括了全英音乐奖和格莱美奖的获奖唱片,以及与著名歌唱家塞西莉亚·巴托丽, 德玛·艾玛·克尔克碧以及琼·萨瑟兰合作录制的声乐作品唱片,更加令人难忘的还有极富口碑的贝多芬、莫扎特等作曲家的作品录音。
