Monteverdi – Vespro della Beata Vergine (1610)

Sunday 11th September @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Perth Concert Hall, Mill Street
Perth, PH1 5HZ United Kingdom

  Monteverdi’s spectacular masterpiece of 1610 is the most lavish of all the music that this peerless genius wrote for the church in early 17th century Venice. Nothing composed before Bach can rival it for sonic grandeur, but there is intimacy too in Monteverdi’s brilliantly imaginative use of solo voices and instruments. With a starry vocal line-up, joined by the virtuoso players of Dunedin Consort and His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts, join us for what promises to be an unmissable…

Matthew Passion, Perth

Thursday 13th April @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Perth Concert Hall, Mill Street
Perth, PH1 5HZ United Kingdom
£13 – £21

When Bach composed his setting of the passion narrative from Matthew’s gospel for the Good Friday liturgy at Leipzig’s Thomaskirche in 1729, he could scarcely have imagined the universal connection that it was to make with musicians and audiences across the world. Even in the secular age, its relevance and impact are no less arresting. Whilst less immediately dramatic than the John Passion, its combination of choruses, arias and extended ariosos present unparalleled insight into and meditative reflections on some…

Messiah

Perth Concert Hall, Mill Street
Perth, PH1 5HZ United Kingdom
£6 – £24.50

When Handel’s Messiah was first unveiled to the public in 1742, it caused a sensation. Dublin’s Musick Hall was so full that the men attended ‘without swords’ and the ladies were asked to wear skirts ‘without hoops’ to make room for more listeners. The press declared a triumph: ‘The Sublime, the Grand, and the Tender... conspired to transport and charm the ravished Heart and Ear.’ More than 250 years on, it still holds a remarkable place in the repertoire, its…

Bach: The Last Resort

May 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Perth Concert Hall, Mill Street
Perth, PH1 5HZ United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£8 – £10

Bach’s rich musical legacy as we know it today is partly the result of a historical accident. When he applied for the position of Kantor at Leipzig’s Thomaskirche in 1722, Bach was only third choice for the post. Telemann turned the offer down after some deliberation and Graupner was not released from his post of Kapellmeister in Hesse. ‘Since we cannot get the best, then we will have to settle for average’, the Council concluded, as it handed the title…
