Today’s line-up features the immensely talented Royal Academy graduates James Maddren on drums and Calum Gourlay on bass. </p> <p><em>“Consistently inventive”</em> (Jazzwise)</p> <p><em>“Spiritual, spiralling&#8230; slow-burning exuberance”</em> (UK Vibe)</p> <p><em>“A truly gifted and imaginative saxophonist, Davies undoubtedly possesses the art of the improviser and has produced an album of exuberant lyricism and consistently engaging tunes”</em> (All About Jazz)</p> ]]>

Friday 28 & Saturday 29 July

Promoter: Serious

Ticket Information: £39.50, £15


<p>The joyous and uplifting musical voices of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, referred to by Nelson Mandela as ‘South Africa’s cultural ambassadors’ marry the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their Zulu traditions to the sounds and sentiments of gospel music. The result is a musical and spiritual alchemy that has touched a worldwide audience ever since Paul Simon first introduced them to the world with the <em>Graceland</em> album.</p> <p>The group sing in a joyously energetic performance that combines powerful choruses, softer, almost whispering chants where voices blend harmoniously, and tightly-choreographed dance moves.</p> <p><em>‘Gorgeous harmonies from the South African vocal ensemble, best known for their work with Paul Simon on Graceland. Though they sing entirely a cappella, their songs have a rhythmic spring, and their dance moves are light-footed and elegant.’</em> (Daily Telegraph)</p> <p>Support for the night comes from cellist <strong>Redi Hasa</strong>, best known for his work with Ludovico Einaudi, and vocalist <strong>Maria Mazzotta</strong>, previously singer for Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino. Reinventing the musical traditions of their places of origin since 2010, the duo release their second album <em>Novilunio</em> in November.</p> ]]>

Here he joins the Baroque ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro for a programme focusing on 18th-century concertos.

<p>This programme of Italian masterpieces is centred round the unaccompanied (or prima prattica) writing of Monteverdi, the anniversary of whose birth in 1567 is being celebrated. This <em>a cappella</em> style reached its zenith in the music of Palestrina and then acquired a more harmonic and even madrigalian focus, as shown in the Monteverdi works, a process which could go no further once in the hands of Gesualdo. Add to this Allegri’s <em>Miserere</em> – arguably the most famous piece of choral music in the world – and this promises to be an evening to savour.</p> <p>Part of <a href="/tour-dates/choral-at-cadogan-2017-18">Choral at Cadogan 2017-18</a>.</p> ]]>

Ticket Information: £42, £40, £38, £36


<p>Over the last 25 years, Big Big Train has established a respected place for itself on the UK progressive rock scene. Its unique brand of music, while clearly inspired by some of the seventies greats, brings its own distinctive approach to the &#8216;English pastoral&#8217; prog tradition, featuring rich arrangements, a mix of electric and acoustic instruments, and an amalgamation of additional influences from post-rock, folk, classical and pop.</p> <p>Formed in 1990 by Andy Poole and Greg Spawton, the band slowly and consistently built up a following. But it was with the release of <em>The Underfall Yard</em> in 2009 that the prog world really stood up and took notice. Featuring new band members David Longdon, a singer of extraordinary emotional power, and the considerable talents of drummer Nick D&#8217;Virgilio (Spock&#8217;s Beard) and guitarist Dave Gregory (<span class="caps">XTC</span>), the album made full use of the expanded musical firepower to express its lyrical themes of English history, landscape and industry. It notably incorporated the very English sound of a brass ensemble, arranged and led by trombonist Dave Desmond, which has featured on the band&#8217;s albums ever since.</p> <p>The &#8216;English Electric&#8217; albums, issued in 2012 and 2013, cemented the band&#8217;s reputation in a UK prog scene which was now in full renaissance, and received rave reviews and national radio play. The band was strengthened by the addition of keyboardist Danny Manners and violinist Rachel Hall (Stackridge), and won the Breakthrough Artist category at the 2013 Progressive Music Awards.</p> <p>Having been a studio-only outfit for a long time, Big Big Train played their first gigs in 17 years at Kings Place, London, in 2015. The band was now an eight piece with the arrival of guitarist/keyboardist Rikard Sjöblom (Beardfish), and were joined on stage by the five piece brass ensemble. These eagerly awaited performances sold out within days and were enthusiastically received. A Blu-ray release, <em>Stone &amp; Steel</em>, featured performances both from the studio rehearsals and from the gigs themselves.</p> <p>The band&#8217;s ninth album, <em>Folklore</em>, was released in May 2016 to general acclaim, and a busy year for Big Big Train culminated in winning both Best Live Event and Band Of The Year at the 2016 Progressive Music Awards.</p> <p>The Cadogan Hall performances will be the first full-band gigs since 2015, and will feature the full 13-musician line up.</p> <p><strong>NB.

Following his success last year with both Prokofiev concerti, Kristóf Baráti returns with the Mariinsky for Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto in D.</p> <p>Rimsky-Korsakov’s suite from <em>The Tale of Tsar Saltan</em> is best known for its orchestral showpiece <em>Flight of the Bumblebee</em>, and the suite from <em>The Golden Cockerel</em> is no less colourful and virtuosic.</p> <p>Both programmes finish with major works linked to the Mariinsky, Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes. Stravinsky’s dazzling ballet score <em>The Firebird</em>, commissioned by Diaghilev, shot him to instant fame. Rimsky-Korsakov’s glorious symphonic poem <em>Scheherazade</em>, based on <em>Tales of the Arabian Nights</em>, was itself turned into a well-loved ballet for Diaghilev.</p> <p>Part of <a href="/tour-dates/zurich-international-orchestra-series-2017-18">Zurich International Orchestra Series 2017-18</a><br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="/files/images/applicationfiles/1406.3838.BPlogoweb/250x86.fitdown.jpg" title="Mariinsky UK tour supported by BP" alt="Mariinsky UK tour supported by BP" /></p> ]]>

Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile&#8217;s proposal of marriage.</p> <p>Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfilment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he&#8217;s fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe&#8217;s life, Nellie realises that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices.</p> <p>Music by Richard Rodgers.<br /> Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II.<br /> Adapted from the Pulitzer Prizewinning novel <em>Tales of the South Pacific</em> by James A. Michener.<br /> Concert adaptation by David Ives.<br /> Presented by arrangement with R&amp;H Theatricals Europe.</p> ]]>

<p>Schubert’s magnificent and rarely-performed final Mass was composed in 1828, just before his tragically early death. The setting is on a vast scale – principally choral, with the orchestral colour dominated by woodwinds, brass and timpani.</p> <p>The symphony was begun six years earlier; although unfinished, its two movements are complete in themselves as the sublime second movement resolves the tensions of the first. Both works combine Schubert’s mastery of classical structure with his own gift for lyricism but also include astonishing harmonies in the early Romantic style.</p> <p>Mendelssohn’s anthem is a graceful prayer for peace strongly influenced by Bach.</p> ]]>

Ticket Information: £45 (which includes a £10 donation to "Lifting the Blues":http://www.liftingtheblues.co.uk)


<p>A career spanning 25 years, working with and for many of the rock ’n’ roll legendary musicians of our time, has enabled Ben Waters to select a group of fine musicians who have joined him in entertaining audiences in festivals and prestigious venues across the world. He is very excited that <strong>Bill Wyman</strong>, one of the founding members of the Rolling Stones, has agreed to join him and his band on stage. Ben has always been a big fan of Bill’s playing and learnt a lot by watching videos of Willy and the Poor Boys. Bill’s style of bass playing is perfect for this kind of music as Bill plays an electric bass, but he makes it sound like a double bass and the last concert they did was rocking because of this!</p> <p>A love of boogie woogie and early rock ’n’ roll has inspired Ben from an early age when he was lucky enough to hear family friend Ian Stewart, another founder of the Rolling Stones, play piano in Ben’s native Dorset. Ian (“Stu”) was much loved by The Stones and many other musicians and they were all devastated at his early death. When Ben decided to make a commemorative album (<em>Boogie4Stu</em>) in aid of the British Heart Foundation all The Stones, PJ Harvey, and Jools Holland (who gave his studio freely) rallied round. Sir Peter Blake designed the cover and donated many thousands of pounds to the <span class="caps">BHF</span> from sales of prints. A sensational concert to launch the album was held at the Ambassadors Theatre in London on 9th March 2011 with Ian Rankin, the celebrated author who based his Rebus character on Stu, acting as compere to a show which included Ben with Bill Wyman, Mick Taylor, Ronnie Wood, Charlie Watts, Jools Holland, Mick Hucknall and Shakin’ Stevens.</p> <p>Jools Holland described Ben in the Mail on Sunday as being one of the favourite pianists of all time and has been a constant support to him over the years. Ben left college to go on tour with Shakin’ Stevens and their friendship has endured for many years. Ben and his bass player Richard Hymas co-wrote <em>Last Man Alive</em> for Shaky’s recent chart topping album. You can hear the influences of the early rock ’n roll greats in the Big Band’s music – Ben has played both with Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry as well as recording with one of the world’s finest musicians – Ray Davies (who curated the Meltdown Festival for the 60th anniversary of the Royal Festival Hall and selected Ben’s band as one of his favourites).</p> <p>All in all, you can expect phenomenal performances from a carefully selected group of musicians who truly love their music. </p> <p>The apple not having fallen far from the tree in the form of Ben’s son Tom, Ben is proud that he often joins him on stage, playing saxophone and sometimes piano or drums, when his studies at the Royal College of Music allow.</p> <p><strong>A donation of £10 from each ticket will be given to Lifting the Blues</strong> &#8211; <a href="http://www.liftingtheblues.co.uk">www.liftingtheblues.co.uk</a> &#8211; which is dedicated to destigmatizing mental health issues via music.</p> ]]>

<p>Haydn’s choral masterpiece, <em>The Creation</em> (Die Schöpfung), was inspired by Handel’s oratorios, heard on Haydn’s visits to London in the 1790s. Haydn resolved to compose a similar large-scale work with a biblical theme. A ground-breaking work in its time, remarkable for its ingenious and original use of the orchestra to describe the Book of Genesis, <em>The Creation</em> is full of delight. Great whales, sunrise, the rolling seas – even leaping tigers – are evoked in a fantastic tapestry of sound in one of the greatest ever oratorios.</p> <p>Singing in the original German, the combined forces of the Royal Choral Society, the English Chamber Orchestra and a stellar trio of soloists, all conducted by Richard Cooke, will deliver a dramatic, lively and truly heart-warming evening of music.</p> ]]>

<p>With this gig the Oxley-Meier Guitar Project begins its second extensive tour of the year promoting its new double-album, <em>The Colours Of Time</em> &#8211; a development from their previous release, <em>Chasing Tales</em>. On both of these albums, Oxley and Meier shared writing duties throughout, bringing to the fore their diverse influences and interests in ‘orchestrating’ various guitars.</p> <p>When playing live, they aim to recreate their broad palette of sounds, bringing at least ten differing guitars with them (nylon 7-string, steel string, fretless, 11-string fretless, sitar-guitar, 12 string, etc.). Having clocked up hundreds of concerts together throughout the UK and Europe over the last five years, they perform with an almost uncanny empathy in their interplay. Expect the unexpected: lush and scintillating soundscapes ranging from Turkey to Brazil!</p> <p><em>“When it comes to empathy, this duet of guitar virtuosi comes close to perfection”</em> (The Observer ★★★★)</p> <p><em>“[The Colours of Time] is a wonderful example of the high level of music that can be made by combining two great guitarists/composers/improvisers such as Pete and Nicolas. They have put together a feast of virtuosity, delivered with depth, wit and joy.”</em> (Ralph Towner)</p> <p><em>“Two masterly guitarists creating an array of changing moods.”</em><br /> (Daily Telegraph &#8211; Best Jazz Albums Of 2015 ★★★★)</p> <p><em>“The music always communicates with a feeling of spontaneity, passion and enjoyment.”</em> (Herald Scotsman)<br /> <br /> <br /> <strong>Pete Oxley</strong><br /> Pete began his musical career in Paris in the mid ‘80s before relocating to the UK in 1997. Shortly afterwards he opened The Spin jazz club in Oxford which in 2012 won the Parliamentary jazz award as ‘The Best Jazz Venue In The UK’. Pete regularly performs with some of the world’s leading jazz artists including Chris Garrick, Gilad Atzmon, Tim Whitehead, Dave O’Higgins, Bobby Wellins, John Etheridge and his own band Curious Paradise. He has now released 14 critically acclaimed CDs featuring his original compositions. As a composer, Pete was recently selected as one of only a handful of British jazz musicians to have his compositions included in the definitive <em>European Real Book</em> (Sher Music). </p> <p><strong>Nicolas Meier</strong><br /> With his unique style that is a blend of Metheny-esque jazz and Turkish inspired world music, Nick has toured extensively around the world with his band the Meier Group, sharing the bill with some of the biggest names in jazz including Bill Evans and Brad Mehldau. This wonderful band (featuring sax maestro Gilad Atzmon) won the overall prize for ‘best band’ at the Juan-les-Pins jazz festival! His recent album <em>Kismet</em> is a wonderful heady mixture of Flamenco, jazz, Latin and Middle Eastern music. His prodigious jazz talent is matched by his other great passion: playing heavy metal guitar in his scorching group Seven7. Nick was, for the last three years, guitarist in guitar supremo Jeff Beck’s band, with whom he toured all over the world, performing at major venues and festivals. He has recently recorded a stunning album with the A-lister rhythm section of Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets) and Vinnie Coliauta (Sting, Frank Zappa etc.).</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> ]]>

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>Doors 6pm.</p> ]]>

<p>Vivaldi’s Gloria is one of sacred music’s most uplifting choral works and a joyful hymn of praise with moments ranging from festive brilliance to profound sadness. Composed in Venice, probably in 1715, for the choir of the Ospedale della Pietà, its wonderfully sunny nature and distinctive melodies and rhythms gives it an immediate and universal appeal.</p> <p>Bach was a fierce admirer of Vivaldi’s work, and his extraordinarily inventive Mass in G major complements the Gloria perfectly.</p> ]]>

<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>Cadogan Hall is delighted to welcome back the enormously popular Russian State Philharmonic with its Music Director Valery Polyansky, recognized today as a leading interpreter of the works of Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky.</p> <p>Rachmaninov himself said that the third was his personal favourite amongst his piano concertos, requiring breathtaking virtuosity from both soloist and orchestra. 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> ]]>

<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> ]]>
