Make Haydn’s Creation your first concert of 2018 with this intimate New Year performance at Kings Place.

Haydn’s oratorio The Creation is not only one of the composer’s most popular pieces, but is also one of the most vividly descriptive pieces of classical music there is. Each aspect of the story is brilliantly brought to life by Haydn’s expressive music.

Ádám Fischer conducts the Orchestra, with the Choir of the Age of Enlightenment and a trio of soloists from the Rising Stars programme. Kicking off Kings Place’s new Time Unwrapped series, it’s a wonderful way to start the new year.

Time and Vision

There’s a focus on time as this Sunday morning series helps launch Kings Place’s Time Unwrapped programme.

Joining the OAE is experimental physicist Professor Helen Gleeson, whose work explores how the structures of very tiny things affect things on a larger scale. She’ll be exploring issues of time and perception.

To mark the New Year, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment will be performing Bach’s New Year cantata with its unusual scoring including timpani and three horns.

Sunday 4th February at 7.00pm, Royal Festival Hall, London

Marin Alsop

Beethoven Symphony No. 4
Beethoven Violin Concerto

Marin Alsop conductor
Nicola Benedetti violin

A musician always confounding expectations, violinist Nicola Benedetti performs with the OAE for the first time in this concert.

She’s joined by conductor Marin Alsop for a programme of Beethoven performed with pure unvarnished musicality.

Sandwiched between the complex Third Symphony and the iconic Fifth, Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony is a gentler, more intimate affair that harks back to older music and shows the distinct influence of Haydn.

Written in the same year as the Fourth Symphony, Beethoven’s only Violin Concerto was one of the first pieces written for the instrument on a large scale.

Enjoy this exploration of the variety of Beethoven’s music with two artists of international distinction.

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment perform

Mozart Arias from La clemenza di Tito
Mozart Symphony No. 38
Haydn Scena di Berenice
Haydn Symphony No. 103 Drumroll

Ádám Fischer conductor
Stephanie d’Oustrac mezzo-soprano

What wins – love or duty?

Berenice is Queen of Palestine, set to marry the Roman Emperor Titus. But a change of political weather at home makes it impossible for the Emperor to marry a foreign queen. What wins out – love or duty?

Haydn turned this story into Scena de Berenice, a fabulous concert aria (classical music’s equivalent of the short story) told from the Queen’s perspective. As political wheels keep turning, how does she hold her own in increasingly hostile corridors of power?

A packed programme also explores Mozart’s great operas about power, La Clemenza di Tito.

Mezzo-soprano Stephanie d’Oustrac sings Berenice, while we’re joined once again by Ádám Fischer, one of the leading interpreters of Haydn’s music operating today.

Seeing Life in a New Light

Marvel at our extraordinary universe and the music of Bach with our new Sunday morning series for inquiring and curious minds, with divine music, lively conversation and stimulating science.

For this morning’s session we’re joined by Professor Kishan Dholakia from the University of St Andrew’s enticingly-named Optical Manipulation Group. A world-expert in the physics of light, he’s fascinated by how the science of photonics can use imaging to help unravel the mysteries of the brain.

Alongside Professor Dholakia’s talk, we’ll be performing one of Bach’s most varied cantatas, BWV 83. Mixing joyful arias with funereal sounds, it’s a rollercoaster journey celebrating the glories of life as well as the sadness of death.

Our very own Sunday service is a place to bond with music lovers and revel in the wonders of science. There is no better way to start a Sunday morning.

In this concert we’ll be playing Bach’s cantata Erfreute Zeit im neuen Bunde (Joyful time in the new covenant).

In partnership with the Institute of Physics.

There is more to Mozart than meets the eye.

His repertoire is full of surprises and deceptions.

Mozart was the ultimate musical genius – and the ultimate game player. He tore up the rulebook, and if you hear his music twice, you never have quite the same experience.

Join the OAE to explore the hidden secrets of Mozart’s familiar scores, led by the Orchestra’s longstanding collaborator, violinist Rachel Podger. She plays two of Mozart’s great violin concertos, which are both unique in their own ways.

Also enjoy an exhilarating but rarely performed symphony by Johann Christian Bach. The son of Johann Sebastian Bach, JC Bach was a celebrity in London in the 1770s. This Symphony in G Minor is his dramatic, standout work, full of twists and turns and dark passions.
