As we head in to the New Year, Acting Executive Director, Sarah Macnee shares with us the highlights of the remaining Winter Festival concerts.
In the New Year we have two more wonderful Monteverdi concerts as well as Paul Agnew’s exploration of Monteverdi, Opera & Beyond on Thursday 6 January. This event explores the idea of recitative, examines its spread throughout Europe, and the way in which it developed. Paul is not only a great tenor, but also a great interpreter of the baroque and pre-classical repertoire and his approach through a lecture-concert format will be very illuminating and engaging.
And finally, I’m really excited about the last of this year’s Winter Festival events on Friday 7 January. It’s our only ensemble concert and Retrospect’s debut at Spitalfields. The focus of the programme is on Monteverdi’s contemporaries. Don’t miss it.
If you would like to book for any of these events you can do so online or via the Box Office on 020 7377 1362 (Re-opens Jan 4 2011)
