Brahms Requiem with Vasari Singers

jeremy011Brahms Requiem and Liebeslieder Walzer

St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square

 

Vasari Singers, under Jeremy Backhouse, is one of the UK’s leading chamber choirs. Now in its 32nd year, the chamber choir performs a wide range of repertoire with passion and sensitivity to exacting standards and considerable press acclaim.

Recent reviews of the choir’s commission and premiere CD of the oratorio The Cloud of Unknowing by Francis Pott, included “a top flight choir and, moreover, one that is at the top of its form, a performance that goes way beyond the printed page of the score” – MusicWeb International, “passionate and precise” – The Times, and “The Mighty Vasari Singers give it everything they can muster” – The Gramophone.

Armonico Dido and Aeneus

Sir_Nathaniel_Dance-Holland_-_The_Meeting_of_Dido_and_Aeneas_-_Google_Art_ProjectArmonico Consort
Director | Christopher Monks
 
Programme
Purcell | Dido & Aeneas
Pergolesi | Stabat Mater
 

Whilst Henry Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas is the only complete opera written during his short life, it has become a work at the heart of British musical heritage. One of the world’s leading Baroque voices, Elin Manahan Thomas, performs the role of Belinda in this stunning and dramatic concert performance of the first masterpiece in English opera. The epic tragedy of a queen, a soldier and an illicit love is told through a spectacularly rich array of music.

From the short life of one composer to another, Giovanni Battista Pergolesi was an Italian court composer who died at the age of just 26.  Written in the final weeks of his life, this deeply moving piece is widely recognised as the definitive setting of the spiritual text, and has been described as ‘the master work of Latin music’.
