Andreas Scholl, countertenor and The Shield of Harmony Ensemble


Wednesday, 21 April 2010 7.30pm

Liverpool Philharmonic Hall

Andreas Scholl and the early-music group The Shield of Harmony have devised this staged performance. This concert is in the Philharmonic Hall and looks to being a highlight of the season.

Oswald is a piece of music theatre inspired by the Austrian poet, composer, and traveller Oswald von Wolkenstein (1377 – 1445). 
Composer, poet, warrior, diplomat, traveller, lover... Oswald von Wolkenstein was a renaissance man before his time! Following the release of his acclaimed recent recording of Oswald's music, and as part of a Europe-wide tour, Andreas Scholl and the early-music group The Shield of Harmony have devised this astonishing night of theatre, using images, drama and of course music to take us into Oswald's world – and bring his world vividly into ours.

‘Scholl's voice rushes through the bloodstream, so tender and gravely beautiful that time seems to stand still.’ 
The Times

‘Undoubtedly the best equipped countertenor of the day, perhaps any day.’ 
Opera Magazine

Piano Recital

Richard Goode, piano

Richard Goode piano

Saturday, 15 May 2010 7.30pm

St George's Hall Concert Room

Programme will include music by Bach and Chopin and Schubert's Sonata in B flat, Op. posth. 

Richard Goode’s playing is too fresh for him to be dubbed an ‘elder statesman’ – but there’s no denying that his years of engagement with the greatest music in the piano repertoire has given him profound insight into whatever he plays. This programme promises an evening of visionary music-making, as Goode journeys from Bach to the sublimest heights of the Romantic era.

‘Richard Goode's performance took the breath away with its sheer, heart- stopping beauty.’ 
The Guardian.


Belcea String Quartet and London Winds


Tuesday, 15 June 2010 7.30pm
