Harmoniemesse - Haydn - Schiff's Surprise - Andras Schiff

I will be Bass soloist in the Mass

Take a whirlwind tour of the music of Austrian master Joseph Haydn in the hands of one of the world’s greatest musicians, Sir András Schiff.

This concert rounds off our Visions, Illusions & Delusions season with a varied programme of music by Haydn, who as much as any other composer redefined what orchestral music came to be during the Enlightenment period.

‘I was interested in surprising the public with something new,’ Haydn said about his Symphony No. 94, now nicknamed the Surprise Symphony because of its breathless invention and numerous musical jokes.

It’s paired with Haydn’s Piano Concerto No.11, which is an opportunity to hear Schiff’s playing at its magical best.

King Arthur - Purcell - Gabrieli Consort

King Arthur - Purcell - Gabrieli Consort

I will be a Bass soloist alongside superb musicians singing this great English work. We will be performing it at the brand new Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall.

A true gem of baroque music, signed by Henry Purcell, with its plot full of twists and turns and colorful characters, King Arthur has been a lasting success since its first performance in 1691. 

 

The story tells of the confrontation between Arthur, the Christian Breton king and Oswald, the Pagan Saxon king. Assisted by their sorcerers – Merlin on the side of good and Osmond on the side of evil – they fight for supremacy over Brittany and for the heart of Emmeline, a blind young girl. Love, honor and peace will triumph, saved as if by magic.

King Arthur has become Purcell’s signature work and Paul McCreesh fully intends to defend its truly British dimension, with the colours and freshness of its creation in 1691, (Purcell was only 31) with a passionate and virtuoso troupe.
