Entends, ma chère, entends la douce Nuit qui marche 
[Listen, my dear, listen to the gentle Night advancing]
Recueillement Baudelaire 

A set of courtly dances nearly three hundred years old is an unlikely obsession for our speed-driven age, but the eternal spirit of the dance exerts a hypnotic effect on audiences and cellists alike. The wonderful French cellist, Emmanuelle Bertrand, will play the complete set of Bach’s Suites over two Coffee Concerts. Fieri Consort’s Town Concert takes us even further back in time to the Sixteenth Century with a programme culminating in Byrd’s superb Quomodo cantabimus. Laura van der Heijden has chosen a wide-ranging programme for her recital with Finghin Collins, culminating in Schnittke’s mighty Sonata, a demonic Presto sandwiched between two highly expressive Largos. 

Vasks’ Plainscapes was inspired by the unspoilt beauty of the Latvian landscape, the music’s earth-shattering climaxes are his vision of Nature awakening. Ulvi Cemal Erkin’s Piano Quintet is another, outside of Turkey, unknown masterpiece that packs into its short span more drama than many an overlong nineteenth century quintet, especially in the extraordinary Ritmico e energico that is a match for Shostakovich’s most demonic Scherzos. There is also a strikingly powerful funeral march. Beethoven’s magisterial Archduke concludes our cycle of his piano trios by Viviane Hagner, Johannes Moser and Barry Douglas. 

Duparc’s story is well-known, the night engulfed him at the age of 36 after he had written a mere sixteen songs; he was to live another 48 years in appalling silence. His entire oeuvre consists of this handful of songs, among the greatest masterpieces in the history of song. This doleful master was in part redeemed by his long-suffering wife, Ellie McSwiney, a singer from Macroom in West Cork.
