How like a widow has she become, she who was great among the nations!’  As we come to terms with a prolonged period of social isolation, we reflect upon these themes in music from the Renaissance…

Ich Habe Genug

December 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Wigmore Hall, 36 Wigmore St
London, W1H 0BP United Kingdom
£18 – £50

There can be few more profoundly moving solo cantatas in all Bach’s oeuvre than Cantata 82, Ich habe genug. From the soft resignation of the opening obbligato aria, to the lilting quiet of Schlummert ein at its centre, we find ourselves enveloped in a world of deep tranquility and peace.  This astonishing work forms the centrepiece of this all-Bach programme, which pairs two of his finest church cantatas with two concertos, together showcasing the extraordinary virtuosity of Dunedin Consort’s world-renowned singers and instrumentalists.

Christmas Oratorio

December 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Wigmore Hall, 36 Wigmore St
London, W1H 0BP United Kingdom
£18 – £50

In 1734 Bach broke with tradition, and instead of writing one new cantata for Christmas he composed six — in the process creating a magnificent cycle that was to be performed across six separate services between Christmas and Epiphany. This is storytelling on a grand scale, recounting the Christmas narrative in real time, with each new chapter moulded to fit the sequence of the Christmas story.   From lilting flutes to glittering brass, the Christmas Oratorio contains some of Bach’s most vibrant orchestration, with a lightness that sets the work apart from his passions. And, in a story which might lack the urgency of an operatic…
