Young talents perform mythical baroque music

In the highly theatrical 17th and 18th centuries, the drama of the Passion period was one of the most natural sources of inspiration for composers. At the forefront of the repertoire of that time – besides the Passions - were musical expressions of the Stabat mater, the Lamentations of Jeremiah and the Holy Week prayers. The modern, highly expressive baroque style - which was well-suited to conveying deep, almost ungovernable emotions - developed a wide range of expressive options. This programme presents some impressive examples, with at their core Domenico Scarlatti’s famous ten-part Stabat mater and Allegri’s mythical Miserere. The Netherlands Bach Society have already shown us in Bruges that they are fluent in this style. For this programme, they are bringing along a battery of promising young singers.
