Bach Christmas Oratorio – Wigmore Hall Residency

December 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Wigmore Hall, 36 Wigmore St
London, W1H 0BP United Kingdom
+ Google Map

“Shout and exult!” Bach did not conceive the Christmas Oratorio as a work to be heard in a single performance. It was a collection of 6 cantatas – one for each feast day between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day – displaying the composer’s unerring talent for harvesting and revivifying his own material. The piece suggests to the listener a spiritual journey from the Nativity to the Epiphany, and is full of wondrously memorable colour - from the trumpets and…

Handel’s Messiah

December 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Queen’s Hall, 85 - 89 Clerk Street
Edinburgh, EH8 9JG United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Handel’s Messiah is now a firm fixture in the festive calendar, yet, as with any great masterpiece, retains a breathtaking freshness and dynamism, even at this the 275th anniversary of its sensational Dublin premiere. Its enduring appeal lies in music of tireless and white-hot inspiration (he wrote it in three weeks), irresistible chorus writing, and, ultimately, a universal message of hope for humanity, thanks to its superbly plotted trajectory from suffering to salvation, and from darkness to light.

Coffee & Enlightenment

Sunday 4th February @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
City of Edinburgh Methodist Church, 25 Nicolson Square
Edinburgh, EH8 9BX United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Considering the sheer amount of music JS 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, we reimagine the special atmosphere of the Enlightenment coffee house, performing works by Bach and some of his famous and forgotten contemporaries. As…

Bach’s Matthew Passion

Friday 23rd March @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Queen’s Hall, 85 - 89 Clerk Street
Edinburgh, EH8 9JG United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Known even in Bach’s time as his ‘great’ Passion, the Matthew Passion lays out the narrative of Christ’s suffering and death in epic proportions: double chorus, double orchestra, and in music of staggering beauty and profundity. It unfolds with intractable dramatic momentum, as well as presenting a succession of tableaux that invite the listener to contemplate the many resonances of this journey. However, the work also suggests a more fundamental question: how, even in the depths of despair and subjected…

Vivaldi’s La Favorita

Wednesday 4th April @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Centre for Contemporary Arts, 350 Sauchiehall Street
Glasgow, G2 3JD United Kingdom
+ Google Map

From his mid-twenties, Antonio Vivaldi was employed as a violin teacher at the Ospedale della Pietá in Venice. Although officially an orphanage, the Ospedale was in reality a home for illegitimate daughters of Venetian noblemen, and was a generously endowed school and residence with one of the finest orchestras in the city. The ‘Red Priest’ wrote several concertos for his preferred student there (La Favorita), and these display wonderfully florid invention and virtuosic pyrotechnics. This is a rare opportunity to…
