And now to play us out, the Chorale we sang earlier, but this time set by Buxtehude @KingsPlace
This year, our popular New Years concerts return to Kings Place on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, to welcome in twenty fourteen with music that’s even more rousing than Auld Lang Syne, and the good news is a) it doesn’t matter if you’re hung over and b) we won’t make you hold hands and sing along.
Led by violinist Matthew Truscott and featuring soprano Ruby Hughes (pictured), the two concerts will feature two much-loved pieces from the soprano repertoire, Bach’s Wedding Cantata BWV 202 and the lament from Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas. We’ll also be exploring the varying roles of the baroque trumpet, from the splendour of the French overture style, through the relative intimacy of Biber’s Sonata a 6 to the virtuosic peaks of Brandenburg 2.
