Step into Restoration London with the Barokksolistene on their new Rubicon album...

The forthcoming album from Bjarte Eike and the Barokksolistene explores the world of Restoration London, when musicians, actors and art forms all mingled creatively in the backrooms of English pubs. Eike joins Gramophone Editor Martin Cullingford to tell us more about the recording.
