"Pure, velvety and wonderfully expressive….It is not impossible to believe that this was the sort of sound that Orpheus himself might have been capable of"

'For me, the Arcadia Quartet is – at least concerning Janáček – the cutting edge currently among European interpreters……Outstanding!'

“… “Proving eminently worthy of his top billing, pianist Piers Lane gave a joyful and incisive account of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.3. "

“… Wallfisch gives the finest account on cello I’ve ever heard… Wallfisch delivers a beautiful adagio and York voices every line with superb clarity and coherence, so crucial in this turbulent work…” ****

”No living cellist has done more to promote the British cello concerto than Raphael Wallfisch…"

...one of the most prolific and well-known clarinet soloists of the past quarter century

Piers Lane, Piano

“London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane added a superb mixture of poetry and drama to his crystalline pianism, Davis ensuring that the orchestra delivered the music’s often ebullient sophistication lightly. An encore of Beethoven refracted through the lens of Dudley Moore provided cheeky wit.” ★★★★ Tony Way, The Age, November 24th 2019

7 February 2022: London Handel Players and Bach Cantatas @ Wigmore Hall

Posted By: Sinead O'Carroll, 24th November 2021

  • London Handel Players
  • Adrian Butterfield director
  • Julia Doyle soprano
  • Daniel Taylor countertenor
  • Charles Daniels tenor
  • Matthew Brook bass-baritone

Bach’s Cantata No. 198 is a secular work mourning the loss of Christiane Eberhardine, wife of the Elector of Saxony, and first performed in Leipzig in 1727. Dating from 1736, Cantata No. 206 celebrates the birthday of her son, Augustus III of Poland. Preceding these in tonight’s programme is an aria now attributed to Melchior Hoffmann (c.1696/7-1715) but formerly attributed to Bach himself, and probably forming part of a lost cantata composed for a funeral service.

  • Melchior Hoffmann (c.1679-1715)
      • Schlage doch, gewünschte Stunde BWV53
  • Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
      • Lass, Fürstin, lass noch einen Strahl BWV198
  • INTERVAL
  • Johann Sebastian Bach
      • Schleicht, spielende Wellen BWV206
