    Abergavenny Symphony Orchestra
    Abergavenny Symphony Orchestra, Dennis Simons, Giacomo Susani
    Our Lady and St Michael's Church Abergavenny NP7 5UD
    United Kingdom

    The final concert in our 1917 centenary series includes both a Russian and a Finnish piece. But we open with Berlioz's brilliant overture to his opera Benvenuto Cellini. Although the opera itself is technically challenging and rarely performed, the overture gives a summary of the thematic material.

    Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez is one of the few works to showcase the classical guitar with a full symphony orchestra, and we are delighted to have Giacomo Susani to perform this beautiful work with us,

    Shostakovich's Festive Overture, in contrast to his symphonic works, is a feel-good show tune in the same vein as his Jazz Suites.

    We round out the programme with one of Sibelius's most popular symphonies, commissioned to celebrate his 50th birthday just before the Finnish civil war which resulted in independence from Russia in 1917.

    Overture from Benvenuto Cellini
    Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)
    Concierto de Aranjuez
    Joaquin Rodrigo (1901-1999)
    Festive Overture in A
    Dmitry Shostakovich (1906-1975)
    Symphony No 5 in E flat
    Jean Sibelius (1865-1957)

    Voix de Vivre - Franco/English Christmas Concert
    Jonathan Saunders, Miles Golding, Neil MacKenzie, Voix de Vivre
    St Saviours Church St Albans AL1 4DF
    United Kingdom

    Voix de Vivre present a Franco/English Christmas concert with an individual twist featuring the Messe de Minuit and the rarely performed Double Choir Mass of leading 17th century French baroque composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier, a favourite of Molière and the court of Louis XIV. Adding extra seasonal spice are motets by Francis Poulenc, the most quirky of French modernists and the aristocratic Languedocien Déodat de Séverac. The English half of the programme includes pieces by the highly distinctive Peter Warlock, pseudonym of Philip Heseltine: his Corpus Christi Carol, steeped in mystical medievalism as well as two other carols, Tyrley Tyrlow and Balulalow. Benjamin Britten’s miniature masterpiece A Hymn to the Virgin continues the contemporary take on an early English theme. The programme is completed by Gerald Finzi’s In Terra Pax, Op 39, a ‘Christmas Scene’ for chorus, orchestra and baritone soloist - a lushly lyrical setting of the words of Robert Bridges.

    Voix de Vivre chamber choir is delighted to be complemented by an orchestra of strings, harp, recorders and organ led by Miles Golding.
