Bach & Handel at the East Neuk Festival
Cambo Barn

Dunedin Consort appears for the first time at the East Neuk Festival! The concert celebrates the great outdoors. Few may think they know Bach’s ‘Hunt’ Cantata but they will certainly know its most popular aria – Sheep May Safely Graze. Bach wrote this lovely piece for a birthday celebration in a hunting lodge, hence the title. Handel’s Water Music is the quintessence of festive: every movement dances with infectious brilliance. This evening, the soloists of Dunedin Consort

Handel - Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno
Concertgebouw, Concertzaal, Bruge

We are delighted to open the prestigious MA Festival in Bruge this year with one of Handel's finest works from his Italian period. ll Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno (1707) gives voice to an allegorical duel between vanity and transience. This first oratorio by Handel contains some of his most beautiful arias, such as the legendary "Lascia la spina”. Baroque specialist John Butt and his Dunedin Consort prove live why their Handel recordings are invariably honoured.

Blow - Venus & Adonis - Utrecht OudeMusiek
Utrecht, TivoliVredenburg, Grote Zaal

John Blow’s Venus and Adonis is his only work for music theatre. And that is actually a shame, since his often highly chromatic music for this tale of doomed love is charming, funny and poignant. Blow wrote this masque for the enjoyment of King Charles II. The piece, which premiered in 1683, became the model for Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas. Before the interval the Scots will treat us to music by Lawes, Gibbons and contemporaries.
