WHAT'S ON / Scottish Ensemble: Prophecy with Karen Cargill

We are sorry to announce that due to illness, Christine Rice will no longer be able to join us for this concert. However, we are delighted to welcome Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill to the stage.

Please go to the Ensemble's web page to find updated copy here

Karen Cargill: mezzo-soprano; Matthew Truscott: guest director

Stravinsky: Apollo (first half)
Haydn: Arianna a Naxos
Berlioz: Extracts by Dido from Les Troyens
Purcell: Fantasia No. 7
Purcell: Extracts by Dido from Dido and Aeneas (including Dido’s Lament)
Stravinsky: Apollo (second half)

Framed by Stravinsky’s ballet, a tribute to the god of Music and Prophecy, the tragic destinies of Dido, Cassandra and more are brought to life in this dramatic selection of music inspired by Greek mythology, spanning moods as well as centuries as we sweep from heaven-sent arias to heart-breaking laments.

The joint winner of the 2002 Kathleen Ferrier Award, Karen is in demand across the UK and beyond – and an artist Scottish Ensemble has long wanted to work with. Regularly invited to perform with major international orchestras, her most recent engagements include Berlioz' La Damnation de Faust (LSO and Sir Simon Rattle, 2017); Mahler's Symphony No. 3 and Das Lied von der Erde with DSO Berlin and Robin Ticciati; Mahler's Symphony No. 8 with Daniel Harding and Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra; and three performances at the 2017 Edinburgh International Festival.
