Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (1644-1704), Kapellmeister to the Archbishop of Salzburg 100 years before Mozart, was a composer with extraordinary futuristic insight. Whether you’re listening to his epic 53-part mass, his atonal ‘battle’ pieces for strings, or his cycle of 15 sonatas for detuned violin, the engaging detail in every phrase he wrote gives Biber’s music astonishing immediacy. His Requiem in F minor reaches similarly innovative expressive realms - especially rhythmically.

Join us in getting to know this rare masterpiece alongside joyous works by Britten and Elgar, and Holst's evocative Ode to Death, dedicated to the memories of friends and colleagues who died in WWI
