The concert ends at approximately 10pm

Brilliant counter-tenor Andreas Scholl and soprano Klara Ek join the AAM for a concert culminating with one of the most alluring and mysterious of all baroque works, Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater. This heart-wrenching setting was a sensation when it was composed, and its vivid drama and evocative scene-painting have lost none of their power today. 

Some light relief comes from Venice, where Vivaldi was using the voice to experiment with new sonorities. Two vocal settings are complemented by the instrumental works of Count Unico van Wassenaer, whose anonymously published but beautifully crafted concertos were attributed to Pergolesi until the 1980s.

Pre-concert talk 6.30pm, Hall
