    Music in the Round - 2017 Autumn Series - Ensemble 360
    Ensemble 360
    Crucible Studio Theatre Sheffield S1 1DA
    United Kingdom

    An evening of energetic music launched with virtuoso classical and modern writing for clarinet and horn.

    Ernst von Dohnányi belongs to the same generation of Hungarian composers as Bartók and Kodály, but unlike his contemporaries he showed little interest in folk music and instead preferred to preserve and champion the Romantic tradition of Liszt and Brahms. His Sextet displays characteristic lyricism, zest and, not least, humour.

    Sequenza IXa, for clarinet
    Luciano Berio (1925-2003)
    Sonata for horn and piano in F
    Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
    Quartet for clarinet and string trio, after Sonata for violin and piano K 380
    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
    Sextet in C
    Erno Dohnányi (1877-1960)

    Music in the Round - 2017 Autumn Series - Ensemble 360
    Benjamin Nabarro, Ruth Gibson
    Upper Chapel Sheffield S1 2JD
    United Kingdom

    A trio of pieces in baroque and classical styleare at the heart of Ruth and Ben’s lunchtime concert, with Mozart’s ‘Duo’ standing out as a small-scale masterpiece.

    The Duo was clearly the inspiration for Bohuslav Martinu’s colourful ‘Madrigals’, written soon after the composer settled in New York in 1947 and during a period when he was fascinated with the music of Haydn and Mozart.

    2-part Inventions
    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
    Duo for violin and viola in B flat

    I Fagiolini
    I Fagiolini, Robert Hollingworth
    Saffron Hall Saffron Walden CB11 4UH
    United Kingdom

    Imagine the glittering domes of St Mark’s, Venice in the early 17th century, ringing and resounding with majestic sacred music. You might already know and love Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610: now, brilliantly, Robert Hollingworth and the virtuoso musicians of I Fagiolini have dived into Monteverdi’s other choral works and assembled another, alternative Vespers, every bit as magnificent. Music to ravish both heart and soul.

    The Other Vespers (Selva morale e spirituale)
    Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643)

    Howard Assembly Room Leeds LS1 6NU

    Gramophone’s Young Artist of the Year 2016, and recently nominated for Best Solo Vocalist in their 2017 Awards, German baritone Benjamin Appl performs Schumann's Romantic masterpiece Dichterliebe (The Poet's Love), with Leeds Lieder Director and pianist Joseph Middleton.

    The best-known song cycle by Schumann, Dichterliebe takes you on a musical journey from the most delicate descriptions of nature to heart-breaking cries of longing; from a joyful wedding dance to twelve giants casting a coffin into the sea.

    The programme also includes Beethoven's An die ferne Geliebte (To the distant beloved) and three settings of Yeats by Ivor Gurney and Marian Ingoldsby.
