Messiah

December 18 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Perth Concert Hall, Mill Street
Perth, PH1 5HZ United Kingdom
£6 – £24.50

When Handel’s Messiah was first unveiled to the public in 1742, it caused a sensation. Dublin’s Musick Hall was so full that the men attended ‘without swords’ and the ladies were asked to wear skirts ‘without hoops’ to make room for more listeners. The press declared a triumph: ‘The Sublime, the Grand, and the Tender... conspired to transport and charm the ravished Heart and Ear.’ More than 250 years on, it still holds a remarkable place in the repertoire, its…

Magnificat

December 31 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Wigmore Hall, 36 Wigmore St
London, W1H 0BP United Kingdom

£18 – £60

Bach’s glorious Magnificat, composed for his first Christmas in Leipzig, was designed to impress — its elaborate text painting and wide range of moods making it one of the most vivid works in Bach’s choral repertoire. So too, was his intricate motet for double choir, Singet dem Herrn, which Bach composed in Leipzig just a few years later. These choral masterpieces are matched here by the glittering orchestration and staggering virtuosity of his Suite in B minor and Brandenburg Concerto…

Monday 7th January @ 1:10 pm - 2:00 pm
Hunterian Museum, University Avenue, University of Glasgow
Glasgow, G12 8QQ United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£5 – £10

Every chapter of history has its turning point, every revolution its leader. The revival of historically informed performance – the lifeblood of what we do at Dunedin Consort – owes much to Arnold Dolmetsch, a fanatical instrument collector who in pioneering the early music revival of the late-nineteenth century ‘opened the door to a forgotten treasure-house of beauty’. Join us as we recreate one of the performances that kick-started this remarkable revolution, where music by Purcell, Handel, Kuhnau and Rameau…
