Opera Rara Chorus
Britten Sinfonia
Mark Elder, conductor

Donizetti: Il Paria

A rare chance to hear Il Paria, one of Donizetti’s most innovative and daring scores, conducted by Sir Mark Elder with Britten Sinfonia.

Opera Rara is known internationally for bringing rare and neglected operas vividly back to life. Working in partnership with Britten Sinfonia, and featuring acclaimed Russian coloratura soprano Albina Shagimuratova, Opera Rara present Donizetti’s Il Paria, a work that brings a new exotic colour to Italian opera of the period, inspired by its setting in ancient India.

Orlando Chamber Choir presents an all-sensory summer concert with the fragrance of flowers and the sound of Franco-Flemish Renaissance gardens. Our musical plantsmen include Antoine Brumel, Jacobus Clemens non Papa, Cipriano de Rore and Orlando di Lasso, all of whom captured melodies from the biblical gardens of the Song of Songs. There will be secular flora too – polyphony about roses, lilies, vines and other greenery – with Josquin des Prez’ well-known cricket hiding amidst the leaves. Clément Janequin adds birdsong to this musical garden, with singers mimicking starlings, blackbirds and the occasional nightingale. To root this oasis in today’s Central London, we have seeded two contemporary garden-inspired compositions by Janet Wheeler, ready to bloom on the concert day. Orlando’s Garden of Delights is open from 19:00 and, to cater for all senses, will conclude with a communal picnic.

East Neuk Festival

Classical, jazz, world music and al fresco art on the Fife coast, in quirky, atmospheric and special venues, from churches, halls, an ex-nuclear bunker, caves, an RAF base and a Scout hut to stately homes and gardens ...

The heart of the ENF is intimate chamber music, but the festival is eclectic: world, jazz, folk, contemporary, early, choral and electronica all have their places. ENF has also commissioned films, exhibitions, public art and installations and literature events.
