A Programme of the Music to be played under the direction of Mr. Arnold / Dolmetsch, at 6, Keppel Street, Bloomsbury, on Tuesday afternoon, / 18 February, 1896, at / 5 o’clock.
Every chapter of history has its turning point, every revolution its leader. The revival of historically informed performance - the lifeblood of what we do at Dunedin Consort - owes much to Arnold Dolmetsch, a fanatical instrument collector who in pioneering the early music revival of the late-nineteenth century ‘opened the door to a forgotten treasure-house of beauty’. Join us as we recreate one of the performances that kick-started this remarkable revolution, where music by Purcell, Handel, Kuhnau and Rameau was rendered in full colour once more thanks to Dolmetsch’s unique insights into period performance.
