Latest events

11 September to 4 October

Initially scheduled in May, the baroque festival of Valenciennes 2020 was quickly reorganized, with the complicity of the same artists, including Justin Taylor and his ensemble Le Consort, Joël Grare and his clavicloche, Gabriel Pidoux, winner of the recent Victoires de la Musique, François Cardey above (without his bird of prey, but with his cornetto!)… , and so many others.

About this theme "Nature (s)", ten concerts (including three creations) and many original proposals will combine Heritage, baroque music, dance and theater - put together with exhibitions of contemporary works.

Purcell – Odes for a Queen

Purcell – Love’s Goddess sure was Blind, Z331
Purcell – Oh that my grief (newly discovered piece)
Purcell – Since God so tender a regard
Purcell – Come ye, sons of art, Z323

Written for the birthday of Queen Mary in 1694 and containing the ebullient duet ‘Sound the trumpet’, Purcell’s ode Come, ye sons of art is one of the composer’s most celebrated works. Drawing on the latest musicological research by Professor Rebecca Herissone at the University of Manchester, this performance presents the premiere of a newly restored and uncorrupted version of the ode, as well as a recently discovered devotional song for two high tenors, performed by Anthony Gregory and Hugo Hymas.

This programme is presented in association with the music department at the University of Manchester. We would like to acknowledge with grateful thanks the assistance of Rebecca Herisonne for her generous advice in the preparation of this programme.

Tickets: £50 (Gallery - £35)



8 October 13.05 (GMT + 1) 

Saint John's Smith Square - London

Anneke Scott – horn
Consone Quartet

Mozart’s Stolen Beauties - works for natural horn and strings

Anonymous - Air varié pour corno (sur 'Là ci darem la mano')
Michael Haydn - Romance in Ab major for horn and strings (MH 806, Op. II)
Beethoven - String Quartet, Op.18
Mozart - Quintet in Eb major for horn and strings, K.407/386c

Mozart left to horn players a lasting legacy of iconic works. Like double bass players, constantly being asked if they ‘had wished they played the flute’ – strangers whistle the opening bars of the famous Rondo of K.495 to horn players innocently wishing to go about their business. Either that, or they sing ‘I found my horn, gorn,’ in the immortal words of Michael Flanders. Alongside one of Mozart’s most memorable works - the Quintet in E flat for horn and strings K.447 - Anneke Scott and the Consone Quartet illustrate the various ways in which Mozart’s works have been “appropriated” for the horn with the virtuosic theme and variations written for London’s most famous horn player of the 19th century, Giovanni Puzzi, plus perform a work Mozart “appropriated” for himself with the curious history of Michael Haydn’s Romance for horn and strings.

Tickets: £10 (Young Friends - £5)
