Nature’s Voice | Online Broadcast

Wednesday 14th October @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Free

Please click HERE for the broadcast For centuries, music has mirrored nature. From delicate birdsong to rushing rivers, and the shifting sounds of the seasons to the rustle of the undergrowth, this intimate programme for soprano and orchestra celebrates nature’s voice in music, tracing its presence through some of the pillars of the Baroque repertoire. Telemann’s orchestral 'Water Music' suite (Hamburger Ebb’ und Fluth, TWV 55:C3) is juxtaposed with one of Antonio Vivaldi’s best-loved concertos, alongside exquisite vocal works by…

How Lonely Sits the City | Online Broadcast

Thursday 19th November @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Free

Click HERE to view the broadcast. Nicholas Mulroy director In times of isolation we find ourselves longing for community — for acts of kindness, understanding, and generosity of spirit. Few texts seem more fitting just now than the opening of the Lamentations of Jeremiah: ‘How lonely sits the city that was full of people! 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 to the present day. From Orlande de Lassus’s exquisite five-part Lamentations and William Byrd’s haunting…

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…
