Academy of Ancient Music

The Academy of Ancient Music (AAM) are among the world's finest period-instrument ensembles, hailed worldwide for energised, passionate performances of baroque and classical music.

Founded by Christopher Hogwood in 1973, the AAM's ground-breaking vision and distinct style had an immediate and profound impact, inspiring a myriad of followers and changing the classical landscape forever. Since then they have reached music lovers around the globe with over 250 recordings and live performances on every continent.

Now led by the exhilarating Richard Egarr, the AAM have opened an exciting new chapter in their history. Together they have embarked on major international tours and have won Gramophone, MIDEM and Edison awards for their stellar recordings.
The AAM are presented in Perth as part of the centenary celebrations of The University of Western Australia.
