Overview

After the success of the initial series of Baroque concerts in May 2019, we are pleased to announce the first of a series for 2020.

The Easter Concert will feature The Adelaide Baroque Orchestra playing on original instruments and one of Australia’s leading young singers, the Counter Tenor Max Riebl, at the St Aloysius Church, Sevenhill.

Easter usually means many performances of Handel's “Messiah” or one of the Bach passions. However these concerts offer a very special magnificent performance of a Haydn masterpiece and a Vivaldi rarity.

Haydn’s “The Seven Last Words of Christ” was commissioned in 1786 for the Good Friday service at the Oratorio de la Santa Cueva in Cadiz, Spain. For this rare performance we are pleased to present members of the Adelaide Baroque Orchestra in chamber version for string quartet.

To compliment and continue the story of the crucifixion the Haydn will be followed by Vivaldi’s sublime setting of the Stabat Mater with Max Riebl as soloist.
