Leeds Baroque: Schütz & Carissimi
£20.00 (£18.00 concessions | £5.00 under 16 and full time students)
Leeds Baroque soloists, Choir and Ensemble, directed by Clive McClelland with Peter Holman (chamber organ) and Stuart O’Hara (bass)
An engaging double portrait of two of the greatest and most influential Baroque composers in Germany and Italy, Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672) and Giacomo Carissimi (1605-1674). We contrast grand double-choir works by both composers (including Schütz’s ‘Saul, Saul’ and a Dixit Dominus by Carissimi) with intimate solos with instruments, ending with Carissimi’s superb oratorio Jephte, famous all over Europe in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
