Uniting musicians trained at Cambridge, the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme, William Christie's Jardin des Voix
and the European Baroque Academy, Solomon's Knot is dedicated to "blowing respectful layers of dust off Baroque repertoire"
[Musical Opinion, 2010] and entertaining audiences with carefully-constructed programmes.
Their "Chamber" Messiah performance of
Handel's masterpiece with just eight singers and a tiny band, was a hit at St John's, Smith Square last year, prompting a
distinguished Handel scholar to say: To produce a wholly new version of Messiah is remarkable in itself but to infuse it with
such engagement, commitment, imagination, thoughtfulness, understanding, sensitivity, tension, energy, contrast and taste -
deserved the ovation you got and more.
Seven of Solomon's Knot's eight singers are Cambridge alumni (and five of them from Trinity).
There will be a pre-concert talk at 6.00pm on 29th November by Dr Ruth Smith, Jonathan Sells,
Julian Forbes and James Halliday. Free to ticket-holders. More »
