Andreas Scholl is among the world’s finest countertenors. We are thrilled that St Mary’s Church, Dorchester is one of the venues he has selected for his 2020 tour entitled The Twilight People. He will be accompanied by the equally talented pianist Tamar Halperin in a programme of music that treads a path through a wide literary and musical heritage from the past 100 years.
This fascinating programme includes familiar songs such as Britten’s arrangements of The Ash Groveand Greensleeves, Arvo Pärt’s extraordinarily beautiful Vater Unser, and several songs by Vaughn Williams, including his setting of In The Spring by Dorset’s own William Barnes. There are also some wonderful discoveries and lesser-known works such as Copland’s solo arrangement of the hymn At The River and Beauty Is Life by Joseph Tawadros, which showcases Tamar Halperin’s piano playing as well as Scholl’s sublime voice.
With repertoire that ranges over five centuries, Dr. Tamar Halperin performs worldwide as a soloist and with various chamber groups. While the focus of her activities is Baroque music, Ms. Halperin is also an enthusiastic performer of classical and contemporary music.
