London, W1H 0BP United Kingdom

Magnificat

August 4 @ 10:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Espai Ter, Carrer del riu Ter
Torroella de Montgrí, 29 17257 Spain
€42

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 No. 4.

Armonico Tributo

October 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Kendal Town Hall, Highgate
Kendal, LA9 4DL United Kingdom
£10

The richness of five-part instrumental writing was not new to the 18th century: German, Italian and French composers had all been exploiting this sonority for decades. But it was Georg Muffatt, born in Savoy of Scottish parentage, who for the first time aimed to reconcile these styles into a single genre. His music, remarkable in its expressive range, combines the sophistication and rhythmic poise of the French, the vibrancy and colour of the Italians and the depth and richness of…
