Couperin - Trois Leçons de Ténèbres
In late March TKC tours Couperin's vividly atmospheric, richly dissonant settings of Jeremiah's bitterly anguished texts, the Trois Leçons de Ténèbres, presenting music of an intensity that is quite unique in Baroque sacred repertoire. TKC's instrumentalists are joined by two astonishing baroque specialists, Belgian soprano Sophie Junker and Norwegian mezzo Marianne Beate Kielland.
Performances in Oviedo and Madrid are followed by an exclusive concert on Friday 27 March in one of London's hidden jewels, the Chapel of The Charterhouse, a few steps away from the Barbican. Tickets for this special London performance (the ticket price includes a free interval drink and a concert programme) are available in advance from www.ticketsource.co.uk/vivat
