Solomon’s Knot: Bach Cantatas
Following their sell-out Festival debut performance in 2018, Solomon’s Knot return with an evening of Bach cantatas, featuring music which was later incorporated into his much loved Christmas Oratorio.
Solomon’s Knot have now firmly established themselves as rising stars in the early music world having appeared at Snape Maltings, and the BBC Proms amongst others events.
Determined to communicate the full power of 17th and 18th Century music as directly as possible, the collective Solomon’s Knot was founded in London in 2008. Led by artistic director Jonathan Sells, the group performs without a conductor, performing by heart without music, exploring new ways of presenting ancient music to ‘modern’ ears, eyes and minds.
