ALL SOULS  – AN AUTUMN CONCERT

ALL SOULS - AN AUTUMN CONCERT - autumn is the time of harvest and wine making. Nature shuts down, golden leaves are falling, nights get darker, winter is coming. It is a time of closure, hibernation and preparing for winter. There is so much music about this time. Join us for a spooky autumn concert with music by Strauss, Mahler, Faure, Turina, Guridi, Barber, Gershwin, Händel and Purcell.

THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE

 

What do you think when you think wine? Imagine someone is offering you a glass of wine, asking for your opinion… its starts fruity, continues with love potions and drinking songs, adds a few juicy notes about Bacchus, creates exuberance and ecstasy, invokes the autumn sun and grape harvest… and has a tipsy ending. Well, if this sounds like a good wine – join our musical wine tasting! Music by Piazzolla, Gershwin, Händel, Verdi, Offenbach, Debussy, Strauss, Warlock, Barbara and others.

Beautiful Star

Video with German subtitles: see here

 

2019 was spent reminiscing - musically - about the first landing on the Moon in 1969. Inspired by this connection between space and music, which we performed in amazing planetariums and museums, we have thought about a new astronomically inspired programme: Beautiful Star. Have you ever stood in the mountains, no city lights around, looking up, seeing all these stars above you? It’s very impressive and may be that has made many generations before us turning to the stars for company, support or guidance. Every year at Christmas we just take the Star of Bethlehem for granted; it’s been there for as long as we can think of celebrating Christmas. It has led the three wise men to the birthplace of Jesus. Astronomically speaking it has caused quite a lot of controversy amongst historians and scientists – so we thought we just tell its story through music.
