Written specially for the London-based baroque ensemble Ceruleo, Clare Norburn’s latest concert-drama takes us back to 1695 and inside the fevered head of English music’s great genius Henry Purcell as he lies dying. Dream-like memories of the Plague, the Fire of London, family life and the vibrant Restoration stage merge seamlessly with his exquisite vocal and instrumental music.
Imagine if Bach was a jazzman ... Baroque at the Edge, the innovative no-rules festival returns for a second year to ask leading musicians from all backgrounds to take baroque music and see where it leads them. No programme notes, no lectures: all you need to know is how to listen.
