‘Sins of Old Age’

13 July 2019
 

Step back in time to experience a bustling 19th century Parisian salon during our entertaining summer concert, held on the eve of Bastille Day. The title of the concert comes from a collection of salon pieces written by Rossini after his retirement from opera, which he gave the self-deprecating and ironic title, Péchés de vieillesse or Sins of Old Age. These charming pieces made frequent appearances in Rossin’s salon during his fashionable Saturday-evening musicales, which he hosted with his wife. Our concert will be based around the last of his péchés de vieillesse, the Petite Messe Solennelle, which clearly demonstrates that the elderly Rossini had not lost his compositional skill nor his sense of humour.

We are thrilled to be working with the London-based group SALON MUSICAL for this concert. Created by pianist Marc Verter and tenor Daniel Turner, Salon Musical uses theatre and music to bring the spirit, elegance and glamour of 19th century Parisian Salons to modern audiences. Rossini’s Petite Messe will be interspersed with salon music typical of the period performed by our outstanding soloists.

In order to create the most authentic atmosphere for the audience, we’ll be clearing out the nave of St Matthew’s Church and setting up tables and chairs for the audience. Each table of 6-7 people will have a tasty cheese and biscuit platter, and wine glasses will be provided. Feel free to bring along a bottle and a group of your friends for what will surely be a unique and entertaining evening.

Advance booking is essential – visit www.northamptonchamberchoir.org.uk for tickets (£16) or speak to Justin Miller at St Matthew’s.
