    Musetta

    In tonight’s concert, a melancholy French air is followed by a luscious Janitsch quartet that borrows the Passion Chorale, a violin solo by Schop based on Dowland’s Lachrimae Pavan, a Fantasia on a well-known chorale, and a work by Handel, the great recycler, which includes echoes of his own Apollo & Dafne and Acis & Galatea.

  • Stour 2019: Orfeo

    Monteverdi’s Orfeo

    It brings together heartfelt laments, catchy songs, sparkling instrumental writing and a dramatic highpoint which still shocks. The drama is viscerally powerful and, in this production by Thomas Guthrie, the music is given the opportunity to speak powerfully to us across the centuries. Early violins, cornetts, recorders, sackbutts, lutes, harp, foul-sounding regal, theorbos, percussion and a quintet of trumpets back a […]

    Trevor Pinnock & Friends

    Trevor Pinnock writes: ‘One of my treasured memories is taking part in a performance of Purcell’s Come ye sons of Art with Alfred Deller, when I was a choirboy at Canterbury. This memory is always very strong when I come to play at Stour Music, so I have selected a feast of Purcell trio sonatas as the […]
