For the past four hundred years the descending bass line constructed from a perfect fourth has provided the harmonic structure for the ‘lament’. Exploring this particular musical interval, we question whether consolation can be found in the rising fourths of Berg’s Op 1 and Strauss’s Metamorphosen.

Henry Purcell and his inimitable ground basses are the creative spark for a weekend of imaginative programmes directed by Hugo Ticciati at Wigmore Hall on 7th and 8th April 2018.
