    Mozart, Vaughan Williams, Tchaikovsky - Bromley Symphony Orchestra
    Adrian Brown, Andrew Laing, Bromley Symphony Orchestra
    Langley Park Centre for the Performing Arts, Langley Park School for Boys Beckenham BR3 3BP
    United Kingdom

    Our second concert this season begins with Mozart’s effervescent Overture to the Magic Flute, followed by Vaughan Williams’s deeply felt Sixth Symphony. The programme concludes with Tchaikovsky’s vivid and lyrical Third Orchestral Suite.

    Overture from Die Zauberflöte, 'The Magic Flute'
    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
    Symphony No 6 in E minor
    Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958)

  • 1 February 2020 - 3:00pm
    London Philharmonic Orchestra: Siegfried
    Adrian Thompson, Alina Adamski, Brindley Sherratt, Elena Pankratova, Evgeny Nikitin, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Patricia Bardon, Robert Hayward, Torsten Kerl, Vladimir Jurowski
    Royal Festival Hall London SE1 8XX
    United Kingdom

    'Simply outstanding’ was how The Guardian described the start of Vladimir Jurowski’s four-year journey through Wagner’s colossal Ring Cycle. Now, together with a cast that includes some of the finest living Wagnerians, he reaches the third, and sunniest, part of the saga. Deep in the forest, the orphaned Siegfried has grown to manhood without ever knowing fear. A dragon’s gold, a sleeping goddess, and the shattered fragments of his father’s sword will all help shape his destiny, and set him on a path that leads to love, glory, and – perhaps – a new world.

    Part fairytale, part cosmic myth, it’s never less than gripping.

    Der Ring des Nibelungen: Part 3, 'Siegfried'
    Richard Wagner (1813-1883)
  • 22 January 2020 - 7:30pm
    The Bach Players - Pour le souper du Roi
    The Bach Players
    Influence Church Richmond DL10 4AS
    United Kingdom

    Music by Rameau, Jacquet de la Guerre, Marais, Rebel, Anglebert, Clérambault and other composers of the age of Louis XIV, the 'Sun King', performed on violin, viola da gamba, theorbo and harpsichord.

    The Bach Players are known for their engaging programmes of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music, played on original instruments. Their concerts are lively, informal events in which the musicians engage actively with their audiences.

    Tonight's programme paints a musical picture of the chamber music presented to Louis XIV by his favourite composers. Composers who were allowed into the inner circle of the king were given the title ‘musicien pour la chambre du Roy’: their tasks included providing music for the king in his private rooms. Some of the best chamber music of the period was written for these occasions.

    Orchestre National de Lille with Eric Lu (piano)
    Alexandre Bloch, Eric Lu, Orchestre National de Lille
    Sheffield City Hall Sheffield S1 2JA
    United Kingdom

    Throughout the ages French music has been marked by its refinement, great craftsmanship and subtle colours. Who better to show this than the Orchestre National de Lille under the baton of its Musical Director, the charismatic Alexandre Bloch? Two contrasting pieces by Ravel begin and end the concert: each movement of the alluring Ma mére l’oye (Mother Goose) Suite takes its title from a fairy tale; while La valse pays joyful homage to the ballrooms of the past.

    In Ibéria Debussy added French dressing to a foreign subject. As well as this exquisite Gallic fare we hear Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto, a work both lyrical and humorous. The soloist is the astonishing Eric Lu, who in 2018 won the final of the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition with an astounding performance of this very piece.

    Pre-concert talk with BBC Broadcaster Trisha Cooper starts at 6pm.

    Suite from Ma mère l’oye, 'Mother Goose'
    Maurice Ravel (1875-1937)

    The Orchestra of Opera North: Steiner, Korngold, Prokofiev, Stravinsky

    Huddersfield Town Hall Huddersfield HD1 2TA
    United Kingdom

    Rising star Kristïne Balanas makes her Kirklees Concert Season debut in Korngold’s Violin Concerto, at the heart of a programme of drama, romance and legend. Opening the evening, Max Steiner’s Casablanca Suite moves from the peril of wartime Morocco to the romance of As time goes by.

    Prokofiev’s Winter Bonfire takes a charming musical adventure by train, and Stravinsky’s Firebird is an enchanting evocation of magical creatures, spells and sorcerers.

    Suite from Music for the film Casablanca
    Max Steiner (1888-1971)
    Concerto for violin and orchestra

    Andrew Tortise, Carolyn Sampson, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Ex Cathedra, Jeffrey Skidmore, Roderick Williams, Sophie Rennert
    Symphony Hall Birmingham B1 2EA
    United Kingdom

    Beethoven devoted four years to his monumental Missa solemnis. Passionate, humble, majestic and intense, nothing he composed surpasses it for scale, sincerity or sheer vision. How wonderful, in Ex Cathedra's 50th year, that they are to join forces with the CBSO, who are celebrating their centenary, and an outstanding team of soloists to mark Beethoven's 250th birthday and realise his wish - written on the first page of the score - that this music should come 'from the heart that it may go to the heart'.

    This concert will end at approximately 5:45pm.

    Mass in D, 'Missa solemnis'
    Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
