Southwell Music Festival: Israel in Egypt

Saturday, August 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Southwell Minster, Church Street
Southwell, Nottinghamshire NG25 0HD United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£40

If you enjoy Messiah you’ll love Handel’s oratorio Israel in Egypt. As with Messiah Handel sets a biblical text – the dramatic story of the Israelites’ departure from Egypt in the Book of Exodus; also like Messiah, Handel’s choir – a spectacular double chorus, is a leading character in the drama. Add orchestral writing that fizzes with originality and solo numbers of plangent beauty and this masterpiece will have you on the edge of your seat. And when the Israelites finally cross the Red Sea with the pursuing Egyptians drowning behind them there’s a choral celebration to rival the Hallelujah Chorus. Conducted by Marcus Farnsworth; chorus preparation by Libby Burgess.

Southwell Music Festival: Death and the Maiden – Late Night Chamber Music

Friday, August 23 @ 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Southwell Minster, Church Street
Southwell, Nottinghamshire NG25 0HD United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£15

Schubert's 'Death and the Maiden' string quartet – a worthy successor to those of Beethoven – was composed in 1824, the year Schubert realised that he was dying. It takes its name from a Schubert song depicting a dialogue between a young woman and Death; the song’s theme forms the basis for the quartet’s second movement, but bleakness and foreboding pervade the entire piece. A performance of the song will precede the quartet, whose movements will be interspersed with readings.

Fanny Mendelssohn and Clara Schumann struggled for recognition as musicians and composers of talent equal to their celebrated male family members. Felix Mendelssohn paid homage to his beloved sister in a string quartet which bears the title “Requiem for Fanny”; these little-known songs reveal her genius. Robert Schumann’s music and above all his songs were inspired by Clara, whose lush and poignant Romances show what might have been.

Today’s programme is a snapshot of a special period of thirty years, during which an extraordinary cohort of composers passed through his class.
