    Songs of Love, War and Melancholy | Anneke Scott (horn) / Steven Devine (piano)
    Anneke Scott, Steven Devine
    St Columba's United Reformed Church Cambridge CB2 3DS
    United Kingdom

    Considered the last great natural horn virtuoso Jacques-François Gallay was ranked alongside the top instrumentalists of 19th century France. This recital, which gives a taste of Scott and Devine’s recently released disc (Resonus Classics), includes works by Gallay and his contemporaries, music influenced by both opera and lieder repertoire which supports Gallay’s assertion that the natural horn was "another voice which sings".

    "Listen to Rubini, Thalberg or Damoreau,
    Or Gallay's horn which in turn combines
    The songs of love, war and melancholy;
    You will know that their arts are the most beautiful.
    "

    from A Smile - Sonnet Revue et gazette, 1835.

    Songs of Love, War and Melancholy | Anneke Scott (horn) / Steven Devine (piano)
    Anneke Scott, Steven Devine
    St Matthew's Church Northampton NN1 4RY
    United Kingdom

    Considered the last great natural horn virtuoso, Jacques-François Gallay was regarded as one of the leading musicians of the nineteenth century, with a career as a soloist in addition to his position as principal horn of the influential Paris Théâtre Italian.

    These performances, celebrating the launch of Anneke Scott and Steven Devine’s new disc (Resonus Classics), include original works by Gallay and his contemporaries; Czerny, Rossini, Mendelssohn and Moscheles. These virtuosic compositions are all strongly influenced by both opera and lieder and all support Gallay’s firm belief that the natural horn was “another voice which sings”.

    The “Songs of Love, War and Melancholy” tour visits a number of venues across the UK that boast historic pianos by makers such as Érard, Pleyel, Broadwood and Blüthner which partner early 19th century horns by Raoux. St Matthew's Church, Northampton houses an 1887 Pleyel grand piano.

    “Playing these pieces on a modern instrument is difficult enough. Hearing them performed with this much panache on an unvalved horn built in 1823 is astonishing. Anneke Scott’s playing is bold and dramatic, Gallay’s theatrical background reflected in the music’s swagger.” The Arts Desk, January 2013.

    “Scott plays with fluent virtuoso technique and an obvious joy in playing that makes the listener want to learn more about the valveless horn. Scott's virtuosity is definitely state of the art today.” Fanfare Magazine, March 2013.

    "Listen to Rubini, Thalberg or Damoreau,
    Or Gallay's horn which in turn combines
    The songs of love, war and melancholy;
    You will know that their arts are the most beautiful.

    Andriy Viytovych, Barry Wordsworth, Covent Garden, Orchestra of The Royal Opera House, Paul Wynne Griffiths
    Paul Hamlyn Hall, Royal Opera House Covent Garden London WC2E 9DD
    United Kingdom

    Andriy Viytovych, Section Principal Viola of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, performs a musical marathon of three major viola concertos back to back, in the beautiful surroundings of the Paul Hamlyn Hall. Barry Wordsworth and Paul Wynne Griffiths conduct the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in performances of viola concertos by Walton, Bartók and Hindemith (Der Schwanendreher) – three wonderful pieces that (we think!) have never been performed together before. All proceeds go to St Mungo’s Broadway, a charity that helps people recover from homelessness and which is the current Charity Project of the Royal Opera House Staff and Artists.
