Bach 300: Coffee & Enlightenment
Playfair Library, University of Edinburgh

Considering the sheer amount of music J.S. Bach produced in his lifetime, it’s easy to imagine his work being fuelled by a strong coffee. In fact, coffee was indeed one of Bach’s great pleasures, and the coffee houses of eighteenth-century Leipzig featured prominently in its cultural life, as a place where music and ideas were freely exchanged by artists and intellectuals. In this unique event, John Butt and Dunedin Consort reimagine the special atmosphere of the Enlightenment coffee

Matthew Passion - Aberdeen
Music Hall, Aberdeen

Right from its monumental opening chorus, Bach’s Matthew Passion makes its intentions clear. Set for the expansive forces of two orchestras and choruses, it is a truly epic retelling of the Easter story and draws on Bach’s most expressive compositional capabilities. More meditative than the John Passion, the Matthew Passion explores the fullest range of human emotions from the bitterest sorrow and grief, through guilt and shame, in its quest for universal redemption. Using similar forces

John Passion - London
Wigmore Hall

Following their successful recording of this highgly dramatic work, Dunedin Consort are delighted to be appearing again at London's Wigmore Hall. Bach's smaller passion is by no means a lightweight affair. With its direct expression and unstoppable narrative, the composer sets out to disturb the listener in a completely different way to the supremely emotional style of the Matthew Passion.

Handel & Purcell: Royal Music - Aberdeen
Music Hall, Aberdeen

Instantly recognisable to anyone who’s ever watched Champions League football on the TV, Handel’s Zadok the Priest is a truly iconic musical work. Along with My Heart is Inditing, it was originally composed for the coronation of George II at Westminster Abbey in 1727, and demonstrates Handel at his most extrovert. Henry Purcell, who was organist at both the Chapel Royal and Westminster Abbey, is often considered as having been the most talented composer in setting English-language texts
