Amsterdam’s Apollo Ensemble is regarded as one of Europe’s leading early music chamber music groups. The concert is given in The Great Synagogue, one of Sydney’s most beautiful and fascinating heritage buildings and the ideal venue for the Ensemble to play rare treasures from the Etz Chaim Library in Amsterdam, which houses a splendid collection of Jewish music spanning several centuries. With two performances on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th January, this 90 minute experience promises a feast for the senses.
