Le Concert Spirituel
Hervé Niquet, conductor

Hervé Niquet's great Concert Spirituel is performed for the first time in Barcelona as part of a festival based on the music of Purcell, considered Britain's most important Baroque composer.

Program

There are few pieces of early music that form so great a part of the collective imagination as the music for the funeral of Queen Mary: Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange has no doubt played a part in this. Hervé Niquet’s famous Concert Spirituel plays for the first time in Barcelona with a festival of music by Purcell, considered the greatest composer of the early Baroque in the United Kingdom, and does so with three of his greatest pieces, including Ode for the Birthday of Queen Mary and Ode to Saint Cecilia.
