Beyond Caravaggio: Monteverdi at the Gallery

August 1 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Directed by Nicholas Mulroy, we play and sing the music of Claudio Monteverdi and his contemporaries in a programme that will vividly illuminate Caravaggio's world. Their music was designed to stir the passions and move the soul, and – as Monteverdi explicitly desired – to make us feel and know more vividly both the pain and pleasure of being alive.

Edinburgh’s own Dunedin Consort, under scholar and charismatic director John Butt, is fast becoming one of the UK’s most respected early music groups, renowned for its vivid, passionate performances that crackle with energy. They bring a sense of enormous excitement to the launch of the 2017 Queen’s Hall concerts – with the modern-day premiere of a recently rediscovered work by Claudio Monteverdi and Heinrich Schütz. Combattimento is German composer Schütz’s transcription of Monteverdi’s bewitching Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda,…

The climax of the Proms Reformation Day is a complete performance of Bach’s St John Passion. ‘More daring, forceful and poetic’ than the St Matthew Passion, according to Schumann, this is a work of almost operatic vividness that brings both a humanity and a painful immediacy to the Passion narrative. Bach specialist John Butt and his Dunedin Consort make their Proms debut in a performance that offers the audience the chance to join in the chorale-singing, reflecting how the work…

Bach’s Organ

This is a wonderful opportunity to travel to one of a wealth of authentic Bach sites in Thuringia, to play on an original Bach organ, built by the highly-esteemed organ builder, Trost. Its concentration of characteristic voices opens up an enormous world of tonal colours and stop possibilities, which reveal the true rich sound of Baroque organ music. John Butt is organ soloist and director alongside acclaimed British countertenor Iestyn Davies for this programme of Bach and Handel.

Claudio Monteverdi’s madrigals are a theatre of the senses. The murmur of the waves, an amorous glance, the coolness of water or the heat of the sun are all brought to life through the composer’s unparalleled gift for marrying text and music. Indeed, the music in these eight books stands alongside Schubert’s songs, or Bach’s cantatas, as one of the greatest collections of intimately personal music ever produced. This programme aims to showcase the ravishing beauty of these madrigals, as…

JS Bach is one of a very small collection of composers who seem incapable of writing second-rate music. His Lutheran Masses are a perfect illustration of this: overshadowed by his monumental B Minor Mass, they nevertheless contain what might conceivably be his favourite music from the cantatas, lovingly revived in succinct works of vibrant colour and indefatigable inspiration. Loved by all who know them, they give the lie to the idea that the devil gets all the best tunes. The…
