      Orchestra Of The Age Of The Enlightenment:

      Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment Choir of the Age of Enlightenment Rising Stars of the Enlightenment Albinoni Oboe Concerto No 2 in D Minor Op 9 Pergolesi Stabat Mater Vivaldi Gloria RV 589 During the Baroque era Italian composers produced a stunning variety of sacred choral music that lifts the soul and still resonates deeply with audiences today. In this programme, WMC Orchestra in Residence, the OAE performs two of the most exquisite and contrasting examples. Written just days before he died aged 26, Pergolesi's Stabat Mater is beautiful and melancholic; one of the most popular pieces of its time, it was celebrated by enlightenment philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau as 'the most perfect and touching to have come from the pen of any musician'. By contrast, Vivaldi's Gloria is inspiring and celebratory; written for the all-female choir of a Venetian orphanage, it boasts an almost universally sunny soundworld and Vivaldi's trademark invigorating melodies. 6.30pm pre-concert talk with the artists (free)

      Cost: £36, under 18s/NUS £18
