Sounds Baroque ~ Julian Perkins, director

Songs for Senesino

The voice is utterly beautiful, and Towers' command of it superb.” Countertenor William Towers joins Cambridge-based Sounds Baroque for an evening of arias composed for one of Handel’s favourite singers, Senesino, including works from Guilio Cesare and Rodelinda. Instrumental works will include an organ concerto and a trio sonata. There is nothing more uplifting than music written by one of the greatest songwriters of all time. Come and join us for an evening to remember!

The Bach Players

SSEMK Artists-in Residence
A Musical Offering
Trio in D minor - Buxtehude
Paris Quartet in E minor - Telemann
The Musical Offering - J.S. Bach


The Bach Players return in yet a different guise this year to perform, as the highlight of the evening, Bach’s extraordinary Musical Offering, contrasted by a Quartet by his contemporary Telemann, and a Trio by his mentor, Buxtehude. The Musical Offering, BWV 1079, a late work, is a dazzling collection of canons and fugues and other styles, all based on a single musical theme given to him by Frederick the Great, himself a flute player, to whom they are dedicated. “They play with flawless technique and beautiful tone. Highly recommended!

Burying the Dead

Ceruleo
Niall Ashdown as Mr. Henry Purcell 

Burying the Dead, directed by Thomas Guthrie, is a new Purcell theatre show for the 21st century which takes the audience on a fictional journey inside the head of composer Henry Purcell. Purcell is in his final illness, suffering from feverish dream-like hallucinations in which the past, present and fantasy collide, and his songs take on a life of their own, moving from the ‘theatre of his mind’ to the actual theatre and beyond! The show deals with various issues from his life, including his experience with the Great Fire of London and the Plague, as well as his relationships with his wife and actresses in the theatre.
