    Celebrating Mozart's birthday with London Mozart Players and Michael Collins
    London Mozart Players, Michael Collins
    St John's Smith Square London SW1P 3HA
    United Kingdom

    Mozart and clarinet virtuoso Michael Collins share a birthday – 27th January, just two weeks ahead of the London Mozart Players’ own 70th anniversary. There’s no better way to mark this triple celebration than to perform Mozart’s best-loved works in one of the London Mozart Players' favourite concert halls. The perfect way to spend a January afternoon!

    Completed just two months before his death, Mozart’s lyrical Clarinet Concerto is considered one of his greatest works. Though often played on the clarinet, you will be treated to a performance on the sonorous basset clarinet, the instrument it was originally written for. Distinguished artist Michael Collins will bring all his dazzling virtuosity to this masterpiece.

    The London Mozart Players will also perform two Mozart symphonies, No 34 and his final symphony, the magnificent No 41 (Jupiter).

    Symphony No 34 in C
    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

    Petits Concerts III
    Emma Lisney, James Lisney, Joy Lisney
    1901 Arts Club London SE1 8UE
    United Kingdom

    The third of six 'petits concerts', curated by James Lisney, brings together Lisney and his daughters Emma and Joy, both acclaimed young professionals. The title of the series is taken from the annual series of recitals given by Charles-Valentin Alkan at the Erard showroom in Paris during the 1870s.

    This concert is in support of the Seraphin Chamber Orchestra Mahler Education Project which brings together members of the Seraphin Chamber Orchestra (founded and conducted by Joy Lisney) with professional players from leading international orchestras, including the RPO and Vienna Philharmonic.

    Masterworks Concert 66 | Lisney Trio
    Emma Lisney, James Lisney, Joy Lisney, Lisney Trio
    Pittville Pump Room Cheltenham GL52 3JE
    United Kingdom

    The Masterworks debut of the Lisney Trio, in Smetana’s romantic and lyrical opus 15. Written at the age of thirty one (in response to the loss of his daughter Bedriska), it is the first work to show the full force of the composer’s maturity.

    Likewise, darkness haunts all four movements of Chopin’s celebrated Sonata Op 35, one of the most powerful and affecting of works in the piano repertoire.

    Schubert’s Sonata in B, D 575 provides a suitable prelude to this dramatic programme; a boldly experiment work, shot through with vivacious dance rhythms and bohemian spirit.

    Sonata for Piano No 9 in B
    Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
    3rd movement: Marche funèbre: Lento from Sonata for Piano No 2 in B flat minor
    Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849)
    Piano Trio in G minor
    Bedrich Smetana (1824-1884)
  • 25 January 2019 - 12:45pm
    Music in the Round 2019 Spring Season - Ensemble 360
    Adrian Wilson, Tim Horton
    Crucible Studio Theatre Sheffield S1 1DA
    United Kingdom

    These sonatas by French composers Francis Poulenc and Camille Saint-Saëns are glorious pillars of the solo oboe repertoire, here beautifully complemented by oboe pieces from two of the 20th century’s greatest English composers. While Saint-Saëns’s piece pays fond respects to the traditions of classical sonatas from an earlier era, Poulenc’s work has a dark and hauntingly beautiful tone.

    “Such amazing musicians in our midst; we are so lucky to have you here in Sheffield” @hall_jane

    Sonata for oboe and piano
    Francis Poulenc (1899-1963)

    Karel Bredenhorst, Rosalind Ventris, Simon Callaghan
    Conway Hall Holborn WC1R 4RL
    United Kingdom

    Simon Callaghan is joined by two leading string players to present a programme of orchestral works by Berlioz and Richard Strauss. Essentially concertos for viola and cello, they showcase the virtuosity and skill of the soloists (including the piano which will function as the orchestra!), while presenting these passionate works in a transparent, chamber setting.

    Don Quixote
    Richard Strauss (1864-1949)
    Harold en Italie
    Franz Liszt (1811-1886)
