Trinity Laban ensembles perform two concerts featuring important Baroque works in central London on Thursday 12 March.
The first concert takes place in Hanover Square as part of the London Handel Festival. Performing works by Handel, Corelli, Purcell and Vivaldi, Walter Reiter conducts the Trinity Laban Baroque Ensemble in a historically informed interpretation that uses modern instruments with baroque bows.
In Borough, the Trinity Laban Chorus and Chamber Ensemble celebrate opera’s tragic heroines with a performance of Carissimi’s Jephte and Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas. Both significant Baroque works in their own right, Jephte is an important example of mid-17th century oratorio form, whereas Dido and Aeneas is widely considered to be the foremost theatrical work in British composer history. There will also be an opportunity to hear this performance on 26 March at St James Sussex Gardens in Paddington.
Performances like these are part of the Trinity Laban training, to ensure students showcase their talent and musicality across a range of London’s finest concert venues. Whether performing on modern or specialist period instruments, students are encouraged to explore the exciting repertoire and sound opened up by historically informed performance.
