We’re delighted that Broadway Baby has given us four stars in their review of our recent Fringe concert, saying that Cadenza “produce a beautifully rich sound that fills the space” and that “the harmonies are balanced and full of tone and the dynamics created throughout were outstanding”. Of the Scottish premiere of Lotti’s Missa a Tre Cori, they said “it certainly shone within the repertoire”. Bach’s Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen was a favourite: “perfectly performed and raised the hairs on the back of my neck”.

A full house yesterday evening heralded another very successful Fringe concert. The opening piece, Zelenka’s Miserere in C minor, ends so quietly in great contrast to the very energetic opening, that our audience seemed a little unsure for a few moments that it had actually finished! But from then on, their response to our performance was wholeheartedly warm and enthusiastic, including some cheers and three curtain calls.
No reviews as yet that we know of, but some excellent feedback already via Twitter, email and word of mouth.

Time is running out to get your tickets for Cadenza’s upcoming concert as part of the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe. This Saturday, 23 August, will see a Scottish premiere of a Lotti mass that was written over 300 years ago. The beautiful Vide Dominum laborem meum – or Missa a Tre Cori as it is sometimes known – is the highlight of the show, but Bach’s Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen, Zelenka’s Miserere and Lotti’s Cruxifixus a 8 are equally good and when performed by Cadenza alongside an orchestra, chamber organ and professional soloists in Greyfriars Kirk it’s little wonder that our concert in 2013 was a sell out. Ticket details and much more available on our Concerts page.
