Cantatas - Listing

In addition to his role as Cantor of the Thomasschule in Leipzig, from 1729 until the early 1740s Bach also held the position of Music Director of the city’s Collegium Musicum. This offered him the opportunity to experiment with novel orchestral timbres. Bach took full advantage of these instrumental resources, synthesising his characteristically intense counterpoint with visceral dance forms to create tangibly physical musical textures. In this programme, we explore two of the orchestral suites thought to have been produced…

This season’s series explores music for voices and brass instruments by Renaissance luminaries Andrea Gabrieli, Giovanni Gabrieli and Heinrich Schütz, alongside works by the 19th-century masters Brahms and Bruckner, whose approach to vocal writing was transformed by their discoveries of these earlier composers.

Gibbons - Listing

In 1617, James VI of Scotland (I of England) made what was to be his first and last visit to his homeland, as part of an affair now known as the Scottish Progress. In a letter to the Scottish Privy Council, he described how he felt ‘a salmonlyke instinct…a great and naturall longing to see our native soyle and place of our birth and breeding.’ With the resident musical institution at Holyrood having fallen into hard times, James imported both…

Matthew Passion, Glasgow

April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Booking Tel
MP - Listing

When Bach composed his setting of the passion narrative from Matthew’s gospel for the Good Friday liturgy at Leipzig’s Thomaskirche in 1729, he could scarcely have imagined the universal connection that it was to make with musicians and audiences across the world. Even in the secular age, its relevance and impact are no less arresting. Whilst less immediately dramatic than the John Passion, its combination of choruses, arias and extended ariosos present unparalleled insight into and meditative reflections on some…

Madrigals - listing

Claudio Monteverdi’s madrigals are a theatre of the senses. The murmur of the waves, an amorous glance, the coolness of water or the heat of the sun are all brought to life through the composer’s unparalleled gift for marrying text and music. Indeed, the music in these eight books stands alongside Schubert’s songs, or Bach’s cantatas, as one of the greatest collections of intimately personal music ever produced. This programme aims to showcase the ravishing beauty of these madrigals, as…
