The English Concert & David Daniels

World-renowned countertenor David Daniels joins The English Concert, one of Europe’s most celebrated period-instrument ensembles.

World-renowned countertenor David Daniels joins The English Concert, one of Europe’s most celebrated period-instrument ensembles, for sparkling vocal and instrumental showpieces by some of the continent’s greatest Baroque composers.

Daniels’s peerless lyricism and infectious energy will be put to good use in three passionate arias by Handel. Scarlatti’s Perchè tacete, regolati concenti and Vivaldi’s Cessate, omai cessate are intense cantatas of unrequited love, one full of ornate floating melodies, the other brimming with rage and heartbreak – and both ideal settings for Daniels’s vivid characterisation and gymnastic vocal abilities.
