Bach Christmas Oratorio – Wigmore Hall Residency

Saturday 16th December @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Wigmore Hall, 36 Wigmore St
London, W1H 0BP United Kingdom
£15 - £50

“Shout and exult!” Bach did not conceive the Christmas Oratorio as a work to be heard in a single performance. It was a collection of 6 cantatas – one for each feast day between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day – displaying the composer’s unerring talent for harvesting and revivifying his own material. The piece suggests to the listener a spiritual journey from the Nativity to the Epiphany, and is full of wondrously memorable colour - from the trumpets and…

Handel’s Messiah

Tuesday 19th December @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Queen’s Hall, 85 - 89 Clerk Street
Edinburgh, EH8 9JG United Kingdom

£12 - £25

Handel’s Messiah is now a firm fixture in the festive calendar, yet, as with any great masterpiece, retains a breathtaking freshness and dynamism, even at this the 275th anniversary of its sensational Dublin premiere. Its enduring appeal lies in music of tireless and white-hot inspiration (he wrote it in three weeks), irresistible chorus writing, and, ultimately, a universal message of hope for humanity, thanks to its superbly plotted trajectory from suffering to salvation, and from darkness to light.

Coffee & Enlightenment

February 4 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
City of Edinburgh Methodist Church, 25 Nicolson Square
Edinburgh, EH8 9BX United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£15 - £20

Considering the sheer amount of music JS Bach produced in his lifetime, it’s easy to imagine his work being fuelled by a strong coffee. In fact, coffee was indeed one of Bach’s great pleasures, and the coffee houses of eighteenth-century Leipzig featured prominently in its cultural life, as a place where music and ideas were freely exchanged by artists and intellectuals. In this unique event, we reimagine the special atmosphere of the Enlightenment coffee house, performing works by Bach and some of his famous and forgotten contemporaries. As part…

Venus & Adonis – Krakow

February 13 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Juliusz Słowacki Theatre, plac Świętego Ducha 1 Kraków 31-023 Poland
zł60 - zł90

John Blow’s Venus & Adonis is often considered the first opera in English. Combining elements of Ovid, Shakespeare and the influences of 17th-century French opera, it creates a powerful dramatic retelling of a tale that charts the extreme states of love and grief when beautiful Adonis is gored to death by a boar. The programme also includes except's from Purcell's semi-opera The Fairy Queen, itself an adaptation of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, that conjures a world of gods and goddesses,…

Bach’s Matthew Passion

March 23 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Queen’s Hall, 85 - 89 Clerk Street
Edinburgh, EH8 9JG United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£12 - £25

Known even in Bach’s time as his ‘great’ Passion, the Matthew Passion lays out the narrative of Christ’s suffering and death in epic proportions: double chorus, double orchestra, and in music of staggering beauty and profundity. It unfolds with intractable dramatic momentum, as well as presenting a succession of tableaux that invite the listener to contemplate the many resonances of this journey. However, the work also suggests a more fundamental question: how, even in the depths of despair and subjected…
