Concertante of London, (originally called the Soho Concertante) appeared frequently in London at the Wigmore Hall, The Queen Elizabeth Hall and The Victoria & Albert Museum, recorded Harpsichord Concertos for RCA, and in the 1980s annually toured Spain where Nicholas Jackson directed a Bach Festival at the Catalan Monastery of Santes Creus.
Concertante of London is now a flexible Baroque Ensemble of young players & singers giving performances of works such as Bach Cantatas & Brandenburg Concertos and gave the 1st performance of Nicholas Jackson’s reconstruction of William Lawes’ Masque ‘The Triumph of Peace’ (1634) at The Banqueting House, Whitehall, where they performed every year from 2004-2012. They have also played in Menorca, twice in Oxford at The Holywell Music Room, on 3 occasions at Kings Place for The London Music Society as well as annually at the Handel House Museum.
In 2009 SOMM released a CD of Concertante of London with Nicholas Jackson playing Gustav Leonhardt’s reconstruction of Bach’s incomplete Harpsichord Concerto BWV1059 together with Nicholas Jackson’s new realisation of Bach’s Musical Offering, entirely performed by just four musicians playing authentic Instruments.
