Beginning of the Revolution

Mon 7th Jan @ 1:10 pm - 2:00 pm

- £5 – £10

Every chapter of history has its turning point, every revolution its leader. The revival of historically informed performance – the lifeblood of what we do at Dunedin Consort – owes much to Arnold Dolmetsch, a fanatical instrument collector who in pioneering the early music revival of the late-nineteenth century ‘opened the door to a forgotten treasure-house of beauty’. Join us as we recreate one of the performances that kick-started this remarkable revolution, where music by Purcell, Handel, Kuhnau and Rameau was rendered in full colour once more thanks to Dolmetsch’s unique insights into period performance.
