René Jacobs, Kammerorchester Basel


Tuesday 07 april - 20h30

Grand Théâtre de Provence

With over 250 recordings under his belt, and a slew of the most prestigious international awards on his shelves as both counter.tenor and conductor, René Jacobs shines the light of his limber baton on Joseph Haydn's religious music with the utmost loyalty to the composer's text, in a repertoire that foreshadowed the pre-romantics.

The maestro guides the excellent Basel Chamber Orchestra through the composer's Stabat Mater, that brought a surprisingly new and immediate expressiveness with unprecedented sonority and the use of minor keys, that were to resurface four years later in the fervent Salve Regina for vocal and string quartet.
