    Entente Cordiale - Choral Concert by The Godwine Choir
    Alex Davan Wetton, Edward Hughes, Godwine Choir
    Church of St George the Martyr London SE1 1JA
    United Kingdom

    Join the Godwine Choir for an evening of 20th century choral masterpieces from Britain and France. The exquisite harmony of unaccompanied voices is sure to soothe and exhilerate in equal measure. This newly formed ensemble features talented young vocalists from across the capital under the direction of former Cambridge choristers.

    This concert also offers a rare opportunity to experience the beautiful acoustic of St George's Church, conveniently located opposite Borough tube station. This little-known Victorian gem was Charles Dickens's favourite haunt and features is his novel Little Dorrit. The church also boasts spectacular stained glass windows.

    Tickets are available on the door, or reserve in advance at www.godwinechoir.org.

    Wide-awake Schubert | Inon Barnatan (piano)
    Inon Barnatan
    Central Synagogue London W1W 6NW
    United Kingdom

    Tel Aviv-born Inon Barnatan is one of the most exciting young pianists in the world today. He has already made his reputation in the US, where he has played the Aspen Festival, Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl and he was recently named the first-ever 'Artist in Association' (a three-year position) with the New York Philharmonic.

    In the UK his fast-growing reputation has seen him a repeat visitor to Wigmore Hall. His recordings, for Avie, have been widely praised and one – Darknesse Visible - was selected as a recording of the year by the New York Times. He is, as the Evening Standard has written, “a true poet of the keyboard”. The Pianist magazine wrote, “One of the finest musicians…You don’t notice his fingerwork, you simply immerse yourself in the sound he produces…and you know that there are no technical limits to what he can do.” Famous for his Schubert interpretations, here he will play Schubert’s last two sonatas, pivoting those two great masterpieces around a new work written for him by the Israeli composer Avner Dorman (perhaps the most in-demand of Israel’s composers) – the intriguingly named, 'Nocturne Insomniaque'.

    Nocturne Insomniaque
    Avner Dorman (1975-)
    Sonata for Piano No 20 in A
    Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
    Sonata for Piano No 21 in B flat
    Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
