Northern Chamber Orchestra with Lancaster Singers
ëOrpheus could lead the savage race... From harmony, from heavínly harmony ... What passion cannot music raise and quell.í
From ëthe soft complaining fluteí ... to ësharp violins proclaimí Handelís ode to the patron saint of music crowns a wonderful programme. As Handelís fellow-composer Boyce remarked, ëhe takes other menís pebbles and polishes them into diamondsí. Bachís Double Concerto, the best-known of his violin concertos for its passion and energy, has at its centre a sublime operatic duet for stringed voices. Sample the baroque period at its most appealing, most tender, most human.
