Ádám Fischer conductor

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.

Beethoven on the Southbank

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.

OAE – The Corridors of Power

Date:
Categories: Concerts, Period instruments, Women musicians
Tags: adam fischer, haydn and mozart, oae, royal festival hall

Tuesday 27th February at Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, London, 7.00pm

Lisa-Beznosiuk-OAE
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.
