Matthew Passion | Online Broadcast

March 27 @ 7:00 pm - April 26 @ 10:00 pm
Perth Concert Hall, Mill Street
Perth, PH1 5HZ United Kingdom
£10

Over the years, our celebrated interpretation of Bach’s Matthew Passion has earned us five-star reviews, coveted awards and taken us around the world. It has become one of the cornerstones of our season. But in 2020, for the first time in our history, the concert halls fell silent and our annual performances were cancelled. It was a strange and sombre Easter without Bach’s music for comfort.    This year, we return Perth Concert Hall for a streamed performance of one of Bach’s most heart-rending works, a piece that feels more powerful now than ever. With that silent Easter behind us, we look forward to rejoicing once more in Bach’s…

Passio with Hebrides Ensemble — Live BBC Radio 3 Broadcast

April 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
BBC Radio 3 United Kingdom
Free

Please note that this event will now take place as a live broadcast from St Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh on BBC Radio 3. Exquisitely restrained yet indescribably intense, Arvo Pärt’s Passio is a modern masterpiece. This hour-long setting of St John’s Gospel draws upon some of the earliest settings of the passion story to reframe and distil its message for modern listeners. Interpolating passages for solo voices and choral ensembles, we are never far away from familiar passion territory and yet, with Pärt’s characteristic vocal candour and pared-down orchestration, it is a work that somehow remains timeless. In a Dunedin Consort first, we are delighted to be joining forces with Hebrides Ensemble in presenting this meditative and inescapably moving work…

errollyn

‘Remember me, but ah! Forget my fate’ sings Dido at the end of Purcell’s opera. But life isn’t always quite so straightforward, and some memories have a destiny of their own. Set several years after the Carthaginian queen’s death, Dido’s Ghost finds Dido’s sister Anna abandoned on the shores of Aeneas’s new kingdom, igniting a murderous jealously in Aeneas’s wife Lavinia – and as events play out, its characters confront a past that refuses to fade.  Co-commissioned by Dunedin Consort, the Barbican Centre, Buxton International Festival, Edinburgh International…

Bach & Buxtehude

July 3 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm
Wigmore Hall, 36 Wigmore St
London, W1H 0BP United Kingdom
£25

JS Bach scholars have generally agreed that the Concerto in A major, BWV1055, actually started life as a concerto for oboe d’amore - an alto instrument lying midway between the oboe and cor anglais - before Bach reworked it for harpsichord, which is the version more often heard. Bach served as the Director of Music for Leopold, Prince of Anhalt-Köthen from 1717-1723. The two principal violinists in Prince Leopold’s orchestra, Joseph Speiss and Martin Friedrich Marcus, had both been recruited…
