The mythical musical character of Orpheus, who charmed rocks and trees with his lute, has been a perennial source of inspiration for composers. This was never more true than during the Baroque, when a fascination with classical mythology led to an outpouring of operas and smaller scale works based in mythical settings. In this concert Instruments of Time and Truth performs two dramatic retellings of different parts of Orpheus’s descent into Hell by early 18th century French composers: Jean-Philippe Rameau and Louis-Nicolas Clérambault.

This concert is part of the Instruments of Time and Truth Summer Concert Series 2023, and is generously supported by John Osborn.

Instruments of Time and Truth are Oxford’s own period instrument orchestra, presenting world class performances of baroque and classical music in Oxford and around the UK.

Free tickets are available for audience members under 26 thanks to the support of the Cavatina Chamber Music Foundation.

Discover a world of music and enjoy all six of Instruments of Time and Truth's Summer Concerts at Christ Church for a reduced price with a series season ticket, available from Tickets Oxford until 3rd July here.
