Queen's Hall, Edinburgh
West St, EH8 9J Edinburgh, United Kingdom
With the Academy of Ancient Music and Richard Egarr

With his vocal finesse, his flawless tone and the disarming directness of his performances, English countertenor Iestyn Davies is one of today’s true vocal stars, both on the opera stage and in the concert hall.

The Academy of Ancient Music is one of the world’s most exceptional period-performance ensembles, and under the galvanising baton of Music Director Richard Egarr, has been widely praised for its fresh, vivid music-making.

They come together for two special concerts at the 2017 International Festival, celebrating the cantatas for solo countertenor by Bach.

In this first concert, Davies contrasts the dramatic Wiederstehe doch der Sünde and its dire warnings about sin with the joyful Gott soll allein mein Herze haben. Two instrumental works by Telemann, by turns imposing and intimate, complete the programme.
