We are delighted to be opening the London Festival of Baroque Music, for their boundary-pushing ‘Baroque at the Edge’ season in May.
WF Bach Adagio and Fugue (from Sinfonia in D minor Fk 65)
Monn Symphony in B major
WF Bach Duet for 2 flutes in E minor Fk 54
CPE Bach Symphony in B minor Wq 182/5
Pergolesi Stabat mater
Led by our director, Christian Curnyn, we bring music from the cutting edge of the late Baroque period. It’s a programme of urgently expressive works by two of JS Bach’s more forward-looking sons, and the delicious agony of grief that is Pergolesi’s Stabat mater, an acknowledged masterpiece by one of the 18th century’s most influential composers.
A limited number of tickets are still available via the St John’s Smith Square box office or 020 7222 1061.
