“It wouldn’t be a stretch to call Richard Egarr ‘the Bernstein of Early Music.’ He’s one of the most exciting and delightful musicians of our time.”
National Public Radio

H+H brings alive the unsurpassed majesty of Beethoven’s epic Eroica along with Mendelssohn’s joyful musical postcard from Italy, which he called “the jolliest piece I have ever done.”
