Announcing our two upcoming projects!
In our first collaboration and first international tour, eight singers from Solomon's Knot join Les Passions de l'Ame, Bern's baroque orchestra, in a programme of Telemann and J.S. Bach.
The centrepiece is Telemann's cantata cycle, Die Tageszeiten (The Times of the Day), with a cantata each for Morning, Midday, Evening, and Night. This is a colourful and entertaining work, with a religious basis that leans towards pantheism.
Solomon's Knot will sing J.S. Bach's motet, Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied a capella and from memory, and Les Passions de l'Ame will perform his Orchestral Suite No.3. More details on the Next Performances tab.

For our third residency as an Open Space ensemble at Aldeburgh Music and a performance as part of the Easter Weekend, James Halliday leads a programme of 17th-century French and English music inspired by the fragmentary poems that Stéphane Mallarmé in memory of his son, Anatole.
Purcell, Charpentier, Marais, de Jeune, Janequin, Lambert and others form a musical memorial to a lost child, set within a visual context by way of projection and movement by Sven Werner.
