<p>The Parliament Choir under its conductor Simon Over returns to Cadogan Hall for a performance of <em>Carmina Burana</em>.</p> <p>Carl Orff’s earthy and bold cantata of 1937 sets poems from the vast 13th-century <em>Carmina Burana</em> collection, an assembly of themes pure and bawdy, spiritual and decidedly physical. Watched over by the ever-dispassionate eye of Lady Fortune, different characters sing of their place in the world, their pleasures, their desires and often their regrets.</p> <p>From the spit-roasted swan who once graced the lake to the bawdy drinkers in the tavern, to lovers young and old, all either celebrate their fortune or lament their loss, and cling to love and happiness wherever they can find it.</p> ]]>

<p>The orchestra of the broadcasting station in Hanover was founded in 1950, however the roots of the ensemble reach back to the 1920s when Hanover’s first radio station was started up. Andrew Manze has been the Principal Conductor of the orchestra since the 2014-15 season.</p> <p>Lars Vogt has established himself as one of the leading musicians of his generation. Born in the German town of Düren in 1970, he first came to public attention when he won Second Prize at the 1990 Leeds International Piano Competition and has enjoyed a varied career for nearly 25 years. He joins the orchestra for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2, premiered in 1795 with young Beethoven as soloist, marking the composer&#8217;s public debut.</p> <p>After waiting many years to complete his First Symphony, Brahms produced a second one during his summer holiday. It has a largely bucolic, even rustic character, and includes a folksy, dancing third movement. The composer wrote of the surroundings in which the Second Symphony was created (the Austrian lakeside village of Pörtschach) that ‘…the melodies flow so freely that one must be careful not to trample on them’.</p> <p>Part of <a href="/tour-dates/zurich-international-orchestra-series-2017-18">Zurich International Orchestra Series 2017-18</a></p> ]]>

<p>Taking three of Verdi’s relatively early works we delve into the musical handling of Verdi’s monarchs. In these three operas Verdi’s characters utilise disguise, deception and deceit to fulfil their ends. Beyond the face of the drama though, lies Verdi’s musical genius in writing music for such incredible characters.</p> <p>For any lover of Verdi’s Italian style, this is a fantastic opportunity to see not only Verdi’s genius up-close, but the techniques he uses to sustain and subvert his own style in order to portray these regal characters.</p> <p>Verdi’s early career is often seen as a variation on the traditional bel canto style, and the disparity between this and the way he distorts this style to suit certain characters, is nowhere more apparent than in these relatively early works.</p> <p>The 1840s contain some of the most incredible years for Classical music in general, and more specifically in opera. The rise of Verdi and Wagner alongside the demise of Donizetti are just a few of the events that sit alongside Italy’s political upheaval in this same decade.</p> <p>Join us on this special occasion to see if there really is method to Verdi’s monarchic madness.</p> ]]>

Ticket Information: £19.50


<p>One of the UK’s most unique touring bands performs, <strong>Moulettes</strong> formed in the early 2000s out of Glastonbury and Winchester and have fast become renowned for their breathtaking live shows.</p> <p>It is clear that few bands have the creative range and work ethic of Moulettes, with a brave approach to production and arrangement Moulettes look for peculiar ways of blending acoustic and electric instruments. Lead singer and songwriter Hannah Miller creates an otherworldly framework in which fantastical characters move between the realms of nature, magic and science, and out of that <em>Preternatural</em> was born – an eclectic 11-track opus for the Natural World, and the strange and beautiful creatures in it.</p> <p>Joining them for what is sure to be an extremely memorable and breathtaking show is Welsh alternative folk outfit <strong>9Bach</strong>. Formed by Lisa Jen and Martin Hoyland in 2005, 9Bach’s music is an atmospheric, evocative, and emotional hybrid of the Welsh folk tradition, and of contemporary influences and working practices. Much like Moulettes, their songs are built on a deepened, almost ambient sound picture and they take you into the landscape and the emotions that it evokes. The way 9Bach compose and perform really reflects this.</p> <p>December 2017 is the concluding chapter of Moulettes&#8217; two-year <em>Preternatural</em> tour, and the last chance to see the astounding live show that has taken the band across Europe from Poland to Malta, and across Canada from Nova Scotia to Victoria Island.</p> <p>They are joined by the multi-talented rising star <strong>Ayanna Witter-Johnson</strong>.

<p>In his <em>Christmas Oratorio</em> Bach drew on a long German tradition of sung Christmas narratives but as always surpassed them.</p> <p>Like his Passion settings, the Biblical narrative is interspersed with solos and choruses commenting on the action. Though written in six parts to be performed over the main feast days of the Christmas season, it forms a continuous whole, especially Parts I-<span class="caps">III</span> describing the birth of Jesus, the angels appearing to the shepherds, and their visit to the manger.</p> <p>Handel&#8217;s <em>Foundling Hospital Anthem</em>, if less familiar, fits the season with its charitable theme, and the concert ends with the <em>Hallelujah</em> chorus from <em>Messiah</em>.</p> ]]>

Ticket Information: £20, £15 (unreserved seating)


<p><span class="caps">ICS</span> at Holy Trinity Church explores one of the towering figures of the Classical period, contrasting the dramatic and tormented motet <em>Insanae et Vanae Curae</em> with the tranquil and serene setting of the <em>Salve Regina</em>. The programme culminates with the mighty Nelson Mass.</p> <p>Haydn’s choral masterpiece, the Nelson Mass (<em>Missa in Angustiis</em>), was attributed to Lord Nelson following the defeat of Napoleon at the 1798 Battle of the Nile. It is remarkable for its fiercely dramatic <em>Kyrie</em> and <em>Benedictus</em> movements, with a relentless energy and celebratory mood permeating all the movements.</p> <p>The contrasts of the first half highlight Haydn’s extraordinary ability to create atmosphere and drama. From the tormented opening motet, <em>Insanae et Vanae Curae</em>, scored for full orchestra and chorus, through to the beautiful serenity of the <em>Salve Regina</em> and its virtuosic writing for soprano solo, there is music to appeal to all tastes. Islington Choral Society is joined by the critically-acclaimed professional forces of the Orchestra of the London Choral Sinfonia and a world-class line-up of soloists, conducted by Michael Waldron.</p> <p><strong>NB.

<p>Continuing the Orchestra&#8217;s season-long journey through emotions in music, it explores the empathy between three great Austrian composers who supported and championed each other’s music.</p> <p>Haydn’s own nickname for his Symphony No. 64 was <em>Tempora mutantur</em> (Times change) &#8211; perhaps inspired by the work’s radical slow movement which breaks musical rules for emotional effect. The good-natured Piano Concerto No. 17 by Haydn’s great friend Mozart is one of his very finest, and is performed in our concert by much-loved British pianist, Freddy Kempf.</p> <p>From a slightly later era, Schubert made no secret of his love for the music of Mozart and Haydn, and his high-spirited Symphony No. 5 exudes the influence of both his earlier compatriots.</p> <p><em>Proceeds from the concert will go to two leading children’s hospices:</em><br /> <em>Helen &amp; Douglas House (UK) and Momiji House (Japan).</em></p> <p>Buy a premium ticket and get access to the charities’ interval drinks reception.</p> ]]>

Valentina Lisitsa joins them for one of the most difficult and physically demanding works for pianists.</p> <p>Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, written soon after the collapse of his brief and disastrous marriage, is saturated with the idea of fate, or as the composer wrote ‘that fatal force which prevents the impulse to happiness from attaining its goal’. The vigorous finale, incorporating a famous Russian folk song, swings from the dark emotions of the first movement to a more triumphant mood.</p> <p>Part of <a href="/tour-dates/zurich-international-orchestra-series-2017-18">Zurich International Orchestra Series 2017-18</a></p> ]]>

<p><span class="caps">MOZART</span> 250’s exploration of the year 1768 continues with a rare performance of Haydn’s <em>Applausus</em>. This one-act cantata was commissioned as an act of homage to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Abbot Rainer Kollman of the Cistercian monastery in Zwettl taking his vows. Haydn composed the work in early 1768 but was unable to travel to Zwettl to supervise its performance; he therefore wrote a letter giving detailed instructions of how his music should be performed, and this fascinating document has survived, providing practical information and insights into 18th-century performance practice.</p> <p>The tradition of the congratulatory <em>Applausus</em> cantata had been an inherent part of courtly and monastic festivities since the mid-17th century, and Haydn’s score largely conforms to these traditions. The text, in Latin, describes the four cardinal virtues praising the ‘head of the house’, and the arias are long and in full <em>da capo</em> form. Haydn’s music, though, is consummately judged, providing plenty of reflective beauty and vocal gymnastics, and two of the arias incorporate extensive instrumental solos – for violin and harpsichord respectively – which duet exquisitely with the vocal line.</p> <p>This concert offers the first UK performance in recent years of this charming and intriguing curiosity.</p> <p><em>“A series worth following; this was an unalloyed pleasure from start to finish.”</em> (The Independent)</p> ]]>

It is considered one of the composer&#8217;s supreme achievements and one of the most significant Mass settings of the period. While it is not Beethoven&#8217;s first religious work, it is generally regarded as the one in which he expressed himself most fully.</p> <p>The challenging nature of this dramatic work &#8211; for orchestra, choir and soloists &#8211; means that it can be less frequently performed than other works.

Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea performs Mozart's Requiem

Tuesday 27 March, 7.30pm

Programme: pg. Mozart ## Requiem ,pg. Mozart ## Vesperae solennes de confessore ,pg. Mozart ## Ave Verum Corpus

Ticket Information: £35, £25, £18, £10 ,Royal Hospital and London Mozart Players Friends: ,10% off


<p>The Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea is one of the finest professional church choirs in the UK. Its members regularly sing with many of the world&#8217;s leading consort groups, such as The Sixteen, Tallis Scholars, Stile Antico and Monteverdi Choir and also work in the fields of opera, conducting, teaching and music journalism.</p> <p>Mozart’s Requiem Mass in D minor is undoubtedly the most famous of all unfinished musical compositions: composed in Vienna in 1791, the work was only partially complete when Mozart died of a fever on 5 December. It was completed the following year by Franz Xaver Süssmayr, in order to fulfil the original commission by Count Franz von Walsegg, an amateur chamber musician who routinely commissioned works by composers and passed them off as his own!</p> <p>Mozart’s final work for Salzburg Cathedral, in 1780, was a setting of the texts for vespers, intended for liturgical use. The highlight, perhaps, is the wonderful soprano solo <em>Laudate Dominum</em>. We also hear his impeccable and renowned setting of <em>Ave Verum Corpus</em>, thoroughly appropriate for performance alongside the Requiem.</p> <p><em>‘First-class personnel… it’s the tension and subtlety in the performances that catch the ear’</em> (Gramophone)</p> <p><em>‘… model singing from the Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea under the meticulous direction of William Vann’</em> (The Observer)</p> ]]>

Saturday 7 April. Doors 6pm

Ticket Information: £37.50, £20


<p>Grammy-winner Kurt Elling is among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists. He won the DownBeat Critics Poll for fourteen consecutive years and was named &#8216;Male Singer of the Year&#8217; by the Jazz Journalists Association on eight occasions. Grammy-nominated over a dozen times, Elling has also been honoured with international jazz awards, including the prestigious Edison Jazz Oeuvreprijs (Lifetime Achievement Award).</p> <p>Elling’s rich baritone spans four octaves and features both astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth. His repertoire includes original compositions and modern interpretations of standards, all of which are springboards for inspired improvisation, scatting, spoken word, and poetry.</p> <p><em>The New York Times</em> declared, “Elling is the standout male vocalist of our time.” <em>The Washington Post</em> added, “Since the mid-1990s, no singer in jazz has been as daring, dynamic or interesting as Kurt Elling. With his soaring vocal flights, his edgy lyrics and sense of being on a musical mission, he has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz.”</p> <p>Elling was the Artist-in-Residence for the Singapore and Monterey Jazz Festivals. He has also written multi-disciplinary works for The Steppenwolf Theatre and the City of Chicago. The Obama Administration’s first state dinner featured Elling in a command performance.</p> <p>Elling is a renowned artist of vocalese — the writing and performing of words over recorded improvised jazz solos. The natural heir to jazz pioneers Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure and Jon Hendricks, Elling has set his own lyrics to the improvised solos of John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Keith Jarrett and Pat Metheny, among others.</p> <p>He often incorporates images and references from writers such as Rilke, Rumi, Neruda and Proust into his work. The late poet and Bollingen Prize winner Robert Creeley wrote, “Kurt Elling takes us into a world of sacred particulars. His words are informed by a powerful poetic spirit.” Said Robert Pinsky, former Poet Laureate of the United States, “In Kurt Elling’s art, the voice of jazz gives a new spiritual presence to the ancient, sweet and powerful bond between poetry and music.”</p> <p>Elling has toured vigorously throughout his career, thrilling audiences around the world. In that time he has led his own ensemble and has collaborated with many of the world’s finest orchestras.</p> <p>In 2017 Elling can be seen touring with the Branford Marsalis Quartet in the US and Europe. Their Grammy-nominated recording <em>Upward Spiral</em> (OKeh/Sony) seamlessly integrates Elling&#8217;s vocal prowess into their tightly knit, almost telepathic ensemble.</p> <p>Doors 6pm.</p> ]]>

<p>The outstanding Dresden Philharmonic returns to Cadogan Hall with Chief Conductor Michael Sanderling. The evening begins with the overture to Weber’s opera <em>Euryanthe</em>, a fine example of the early German Romantic style heralding Richard Wagner, who in fact arranged Weber’s burial in Dresden, where he lived part of his life.</p> <p>German violinist Arabella Steinbacher has firmly established herself as one of today’s leading violinists on the international concert scene, performing with the world’s major orchestras. The <em>New York Times</em> reports that she plays with ‘balanced lyricism and fire &#8211; among her assets are a finely polished technique and a beautifully varied palette of timbres’, and she brings these to bear on Tchaikovsky&#8217;s passionate and virtuosic Violin Concerto.</p> <p>The concert concludes with Shostakovich’s hugely popular and emotional Symphony No. 5. Apparently, at the work’s premiere, many members of the audience wept during its sublime third movement.</p> <p>Part of <a href="/tour-dates/zurich-international-orchestra-series-2017-18">Zurich International Orchestra Series 2017-18</a></p> ]]>

<p>Brussels Philharmonic is back for a second visit this season with a programme full of romance and drama. The orchestra’s Music Director, Stéphane Denève, is joined by the Dutch violinist Liza Ferschtman.</p> <p>Bernstein‘s <em>Serenade</em> is perhaps his most famous non-theatrical work and has been performed by many great violinists. It is based on Plato’s <em>Symposium</em>, the text in which he introduced the concept of Platonic love. Bernstein described his violin showpiece as ‘a series of related statements in praise of love’.</p> <p>Jazz and dance rhythms, finger clicking, not to mention a police whistle are not ordinarily heard at symphony concerts but expect to hear them all during a performance of <em>West Side Story</em>, Bernstein’s modern-day, big-city adaptation of <em>Romeo and Juliet</em>. In 1960, Bernstein drew from it an orchestral suite of <em>Symphonic Dances</em> which follows the principal episodes of the drama.</p> <p>Part of <a href="/tour-dates/zurich-international-orchestra-series-2017-18">Zurich International Orchestra Series 2017-18</a></p> ]]>

<p>Tallis’s 40-part motet <em>Spem in alium</em> stands as one of the most astonishing achievements of the human spirit, unrivalled in the <em>a cappella</em> idiom in its complexity. The very size and scope of it calls for forces which enable us to programme some other substantial masterpieces we cannot normally perform: Sheppard’s 6-voice <em>Missa Cantate</em>; and Robert White’s glorious <em>Magnificat</em>, replete with a triple gimell.</p> <p>But perhaps the <em>pièce de résistance</em> in this context is John Sutton’s 7-voice <em>Salve Regina</em> from the <em>Eton Choirbook</em>. It may have fewer parts than <em>Spem</em>, but it is just as much of a challenge to sing.</p> <p>Part of <a href="/tour-dates/choral-at-cadogan-2017-18">Choral at Cadogan 2017-18</a>.</p> ]]>

<p>In 1930s New York jazz was the pop of its day and the music emanating from Manhattan’s radio stations, nightclubs, bars and dance halls was at its most swinging and exciting. Recreating the music of stars such as Fats Waller, Lionel Hampton, Benny Goodman, Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday will be some of the greatest names on today&#8217;s classic jazz scene, pianists <strong>Martin Litton</strong> and <strong>Keith Nichols</strong>, trumpeter <strong>Enrico Tomasso</strong>, singers <strong>Joan Viskant</strong> and <strong>Julia Biel</strong> and from Germany, the brilliant saxophonist and clarinetist <strong>Matthias Seuffert</strong>.</p> <p>We begin in 1937 with music from The Madhattan Room at Midtown’s Hotel Pennsylvania where Chicagoan Benny Goodman, The King of Swing, is resident. Benny’s effervescent playing is captured perfectly by German clarinet star Matthias Seuffert. From here, a cab ride to Greenwich Village and Nick’s Club where Eddie Condon and his band are cooking up a storm with their freewheeling Chicago jazz style.</p> <p>Keeping with our Chicagoans in New York theme we then feature our very own Chicago Chanteuse, Joan Viskant, paying tribute to the great singers Lee Wiley and Mildred Bailey. The first set finishes with the music of Harlem’s ‘Cheerful Little Earful’: Fats Waller. Keith Nichols leads his six-piece through some of the most well-loved Fats compositions such as <em>Your Feet’s Too Big</em> and <em>The Joint is Jumpin’</em>.</p> <p>Vibraphone virtuoso Anthony Kerr kicks off the second set performing as Lionel Hampton and taking us to New York’s <span class="caps">RCA</span> Victor studios in 1938 where Hamp’s dizzying small band sessions included some of the top New York jazzmen of the day such as Benny Carter and Harry James.</p> <p>2015 is the centenary of the ever-popular Billie Holiday and we celebrate with singer Julia Biel who captures Billie’s sound and style perfectly in a set of some of Billie’s marvellous recordings with Teddy Wilson and Lester Young. Pianist Martin Litton takes on the role of Duke Ellington and we’re back in the <span class="caps">RCA</span> studios with Duke’s small band starring such luminaries as Johnny Hodges and Cootie Williams.</p> <p>The concert finishes with a tribute to the biggest name in jazz, Louis Armstrong (played by maestro Enrico Tomasso reprising his role as the great ‘Satchmo’). In 1938 Louis was joined by Fats Waller, Bud Freeman, Jack Teagarden and a hotter-than-hot rhythm section on a Saturday Night in Harlem session on radio station <span class="caps">WNEW</span>. The wonderful music that ensued makes for a fitting climax to this round-up of jazz in 1930’s New York.</p> ]]>
