The Classical Duke Ellington

Saturday 8 September 2018, 7.30pm

Promoter: The Jazz Repertory Company

Programme: pg. Holst ## The Planets (arr. Pete Long) ,pg. Tchaikovsky ## The Nutcracker Suite (arr. Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn) ,pg. Grieg ## Peer Gynt Suites 1 and 2 (arr. Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn) ,

Ticket Information: £36 £28, £23, £18.


<p>September 2018 is the centenary of the first ever performance of one of the most-loved works in the classical repertoire, Gustav Holst’s <em>The Planets</em>. Its novel sonorities helped make the work an immediate success with audiences at home and abroad and now have inspired Pete Long to re-score the work as if Duke Ellington had adapted the piece in his own distinctive way. As Long explained:</p> <p><em>“Whilst driving, &#8216;Venus&#8217; from the Planets Suite came on the radio. It suddenly struck me how Ellingtonian the curves of the melody were, and how Holst&#8217;s warped, flowing harmonic symmetry was so redolent of that of Ellington&#8217;s composing partner, Billy Strayhorn. It was a long car journey, and by the time I&#8217;d reached my destination, the broad idea of re-orchestrating the whole suite for an Ellington-style orchestra had coalesced.”</em></p> <p>Besides his tenure as leader of the Ronnie Scott Orchestra, featured sax star of the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra and Musical Director of The Jazz Repertory Company, Long has also run the Echoes of Ellington Orchestra since 1993 and his admiration for the work of Duke and Billy Strayhorn has given him a deep knowledge and understanding of what makes this music sound as it does. He is also able to source the right musicians to recreate the uniqueness of the great orchestra’s sidemen such as saxophonists Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves and Harry Carney, as well as the distinctive drumming of Sam Woodyard and trombone work of Laurence Brown. Listening to the Echoes of Ellington perform is the closest you’ll ever come to the experience of hearing the original Ellington sound live in all its glory and pomp.</p> <p>The other works included in our concert are Duke’s re-workings from 1960 of Grieg’s <em>Peer Gynt Suite</em> (from the album <em>Swinging Suites</em> by Edward E. &amp; Edward G) and Tchaikovsky’s <em>Nutcracker Suite</em> (which the Echoes of Ellington Orchestra performed with Northern Ballet on their coast to coast <span class="caps">USA</span> tour).</p> <p>We hope you’ll be able to join us for this very special triple celebration – 10 years of The Jazz Repertory Company at Cadogan Hall, 25 years since the formation of the Echoes of Ellington Orchestra and 100 years since the premiere of <em>The Planets</em>.</p> ]]>

Ticket Information: £26


<p>Cadogan Hall is delighted to announce Stephen Lynch and his musical-based comedy show this September. </p> <p>Whether he’s singing an ode to “queer tattoos”, telling his potential paramour all the things he won’t be doing for her (he ain’t fightin’ no Lion), or lamenting his new vegan lifestyle (“Tofurkey? Tof**k yourself &#8211; I want some meat”), Stephen Lynch will always consider himself “a musician trapped in the body of a comedian”. His unique blend of musical based comedy has earned him fiercely loyal fans around the world who live to experience his sold-out live shows, five best-selling CDs, his <span class="caps">RIAA</span>-certified Gold <span class="caps">DVD</span> and his top-rated Comedy Central Specials.</p> <p>Lynch’s highly anticipated fifth album, <em><span class="caps">LION</span></em>, was released in 2012. The album, recorded in Nashville and New York and released by What Are Records?, embodies the musical evolution of Lynch’s career. Part Americana, part folk, part alt-country, its listeners will notice a more musically sophisticated album with the same cutting humoir.</p> <p>Stephen moved to New York in 1996, with the goal of becoming a performer. While temping during the day, he wrote songs and performed at clubs and underground music venues around Manhattan at night. Stephen quickly developed a devoted fan base and caught the attention of Comedy Central, who invited him to record his first cable special in 2000. That special became one of their highest rated shows in the series, almost unheard of for an unknown. His second Comedy Central special debuted in January 2008, with similarly high ratings.</p> <p>In 2006, Stephen Lynch stepped onto the Broadway stage for the first time in the title role of <em>The Wedding Singer</em>. His performance earned him nominations for some of the highest honoirs in American Theatre including the Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actor in a Musical, as well as the highly coveted Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical.</p> <p>Stephen’s albums <em>A Little Bit Special, Superhero, The Craig Machine</em>, and <em>3 Balloons</em> have sold hundreds of thousands of copies around the world. His first <span class="caps">DVD</span>, <em>Live at the El Rey</em>, was certified Gold by <span class="caps">RIAA</span>. Stephen has toured with some of the biggest names in comedy, including Lewis Black and the late Mitch Hedberg. He’s also headlined his own sold out shows throughout the United States, Australia and Europe, where it&#8217;s been said he’s “the Beyonce of Scandinavia”.</p> <p>When not touring the globe for ardent and enthusiastic fans, Stephen divides his time between New York and Michigan with his wife.</p> <p>Under 14&#8217;s must be accompanied by an adult.</p> <p><em>Venue doors open 6pm. Full stage timings to be announced. Please revisit this page closer to the event date for the latest timings.</em></p> ]]>

<p>After its successful season of <em>Madama Butterfly</em> and <em>Tosca</em> last year, Russian State Opera returns to delight you with the powerful and dramatic production of <em>Carmen</em>. Feel the thrill of fiery passion, jealousy and violence of 19th-century Seville in Bizet’s most popular opera. </p> <p>Carmen tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who falls head over heels in love with Carmen, a seductive, free-spirited femme fatale. The infatuated Don José abandons his childhood sweetheart and neglects his military duties, only to lose the fickle Carmen to the glamorous toreador Escamillo.</p> <p>The music of Carmen has been widely acclaimed for the brilliance of its melodies, enthralling atmosphere and orchestration, as well as for the skill with which Bizet musically represented the emotions and suffering of his characters.</p> <p>The <em>Toreador Song</em> is among the best known of all operatic arias. The rich and colourful vigour of the gypsies’ scenes will have you on the edge of your seat, the vibrancy, enthusiasm and intensity of the performances will reverberate long after the final curtain has fallen.</p> <p>Love, treachery, passion and betrayal, Carmen has it all.</p> <p><em>Sung in French with English surtitles.</em></p> <p><em>“Always top-quality productions from this producer”</em><br /> (Stage Talk Magazine)</p> <p><strong>NB. Please note start time.</strong></p> ]]>

<p>Chris Barber <span class="caps">OBE</span> (87) is one of the last British Jazz legends around and an icon of traditional jazz in the United Kingdom. This season he starts celebrating his 65th anniversary as leader of his band on a full-time professional basis and 70th anniversary on starting his musical career. </p> <p>Since 1949 he has been active in the music scene with promoting, recording and releasing music and touring his band. So far he has released hundreds of recordings, performed more than 15,000 concerts in 50 different countries in five different continents. An incredible milestone. </p> <p>Chris Barber is one of the initiators of pop music today, as he gave stage to many American blues musicians during the &#8217;50s for the first time in Europe. Musicians like Muddy Waters, Sonny Terry &amp; Brownie McGhee and Big Bill Broonzy. These musicians later inspired bands like The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and Eric Clapton. Chris and his band are respected by many other jazz, blues and pop musicians, like Van Morrison, John Mayall, Eric Clapton, Bill Wyman, Mark Knopfler, Paul Jones and many more. </p> <p>The <span class="caps">BIG</span> (10-piece) Chris Barber Band, inspired by the great Ken Colyer Jazz Men, features everything from New Orleans to blues to late 20&#8217;s Ellington, played with extraordinary panache and skill. On this special night, you will hear songs from that age and Chris’ favourites songs like <em>Bourbon Street Parade, Jubilee Stomp, Petite Fleur, Ice Cream, When the Saints Go Marching In</em>, and many more.</p> <p>The band stands out as one of the finest, if not the finest, of its kind anywhere in the world. You can count on an exciting evening full of high-quality jazz and blues which will appeal in equal measure to the aficionado and the newcomer.</p> ]]>

Ticket Information: £36, £28, £23, £18 , ,Series discount available - see "series page":/tour-dates/the-jazz-repertory-company-presents for details.


<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>, vibraphonist <strong>Anthony Kerr</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> ]]>

Concert Duration: 2 hours

<p><em>&#8220;The most expensive solution would be to blow the opera houses up&#8221;</em> (Pierre Boulez).</p> <p>Conductor Mark Austin offers an accessible exploration of opera in the 20th century, uncovering its roots in the 19th century as the starting point for a survey of the pathways composers took in response to the urgent search for post-Romantic musical languages. Beginning with Strauss, whose musical experimentation at the start of the 20th century would indicate the ground ahead, and concluding with Mark-Anthony Turnage (for whose latest opera, <em>Coraline</em>, Mark Austin was assistant conductor at the Royal Opera House) this lecture aims to provide a wide-ranging overview of this fascinating and controversial period.</p> <p>With a field including Puccini, Debussy, Janáček, Gershwin, Berg, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Britten, Adams, Glass and more, this promises to be an exhilarating opportunity to experience the trajectory of opera over an extended period. Mark will particularly attempt to distill and demonstrate the musical language of each of these important figures to illustrate the evolution of opera over the century. Accompanied by Opera Prelude’s young artists.</p> <p>Mark Austin is a conductor and pianist of integrity. His sensitive and mature performances have earned a reputation for their “eloquent intensity” (<em>Guardian</em>). In Spring 2018 Mark worked for Royal Opera as Assistant Conductor for the world premiere of Mark-Anthony Turnage’s opera <em>Coraline</em>. In the summer he returns to the Grange Festival for <em>Il Barbiere di Siviglia</em> (assistant conductor to David Parry), and will be leading the advanced opera course at Dartington International Festival (Mozart <em>Le Nozze di Figaro</em>). Recent opera conducting credits include: <em>Goyescas</em> (Grange Festival), Hansel and <em>Gretel</em> (Mercury Theatre), <em>La traviata</em>, <em>Le comte Ory</em> (Opera South), <em>Il barbieri di Siviglia</em>, and <em>Tosca</em> (Musique Cordiale International Festival). He is artistic director of Faust Chamber Orchestra, performing in Kings Place, <span class="caps">LSO</span> St Luke’s and West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge.<br /> Also an accomplished pianist, Mark has accompanied singers at venues including Kings Place, Wigmore Hall, St John’s Smith Square, Leighton House (Dame Felicity Lott), Holywell Music Room, Colston Hall, Champs Hill, Opera Bastille, Paris and the Shanghai Oriental Arts Centre.</p> ]]>

His most ambiguous and enigmatic work, Shostakovich’s Fifteenth Symphony is a summation of his entire symphonic output, notable for the similarities as much as the differences which remain between his first and last symphonic works.</p> ]]>

Concert Duration: 2 hours

<p>With Dr Natalia Murray, Maria Levandovskaya (piano) and Ed Ballard (baritone). </p> <p>Inspired by the recent exhibition <em>Icons of Modern Art. The Shchukin Collection</em>, which attracted over 1.3 million visitors in just four months and took place at the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, Dr Natalia Murray will explore the fascinating interplay that existed between French and Russian art in the first two decades of the 20th century. </p> <p>Although modern French art was undoubtedly a touchstone throughout the period, the variety of ways in which so many Russian artists, both men and women, succeeded in fusing it with the extraordinary wealth of their own cultural heritage, resulted in a wonderful flowering which changed the course of modern art. Many Russian avant-garde artists, including Mark Chagall, Petr Konchalovsky, Natalia Goncharova and Mikhail Larionov had lived and studied in Paris. Others had readily absorbed the works by Cézanne, Gauguin, Matisse, Picasso and Le Fauconnier, brought to Russia by the merchants and collectors Ivan Morozov and Sergei Shchukin; famous for buying art out of artist’s studios and supposedly &#8216;&#8216;the only man ever to have owned more Picassos than Picasso himself!”</p> <p>Sergei Shchukin (1854-1936) expended his fortune on French Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Modern Art. Within two decades, he had collected 275 works of art but many of his visitors reacted with bafflement to his purchases. Impressionist works adorned the music room of his mansion in Moscow where Rachmaninov and Shaliapin performed at his soirees. One of the most favourite of Shchukin`s composers was Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin (1872 – 1915) who was influenced in his early life by Chopin and considered to be one of the most innovative and most controversial of early modern composers. His music was almost ignored outside Russia until recent times. We will have the chance to hear one of his pieces played by Maria Levandovskaya, our Director of Russian programming. </p> <p>Art flowed from Paris to Moscow and artists travelled from Moscow to Paris. Dr Murray will examine the influence of the French modern art on Russian artists who fell under its spell at home or in Paris, where they worked alongside each other in the famous artists’ residence in Montparnasse, ‘La Ruche’, or where they studied at the Académie Julian or at Marie Vassilieff’s Russian Art Academy. To ensure a music-filled morning, Maria will be accompanied by Ed Ballard (baritone) and together they will perform songs in French by Stravinsky, composed after his first visit to Paris, they will also perform other numbers from Debussy and Rachmaninov. </p> <p>Dr Natalia Murray was born in St Petersburg where she gained BA and MA in Art History at the Academy of Fine Arts before taking the PhD course at the Hermitage Museum (conducting research on the <span class="caps">XVII</span> century Dutch paintings and British reproductive mezzotint engravings of <span class="caps">XVII</span>-<span class="caps">XIX</span> centuries, and their connection with the development of artistic tastes in Britain). In 2015 she has been awarded PhD at the Courtauld Institute of Art. In 2012 she wrote a book <em>The Unsung Hero of the Russian Avant-Garde. The Life and Times of Nikolay Punin</em> (Leiden-Boston: Brill Academic, 2012).</p> <p>At present she is working as a visiting lecturer at the Courtauld Institute of Art and as a head of education and public programmes at <span class="caps">GRAD</span> (Gallery for Russian Art and Design). She is also curating a major exhibition <em>Revolution. Russian Art. 1917-1932</em> which will take place at the Royal Academy of Arts in 2017, and editing her next book on post-revolutionary festivals in Petrograd. Natalia is also trustee of the Russian Avant-Garde Research Project – a UK-based charity which shares one of her aspirations to reduce the number of fakes on the Russian art market.</p> ]]>

<p>Ry Cooder once likened his playing – a sublime amalgam of American folk and blues, Hawaiian slack-key guitar, the Tex-Mex zest of conjunto and the regal sensuality of Afro-Cuban son – as &#8220;some kind of steam device gone out of control&#8221;. </p> <p>Cooder&#8217;s life on guitar has been distinguished by a rare mix of archaic fundamentals and exploratory passion, from his emergence as a teenage blues phenomenon with Taj Mahal and Captain Beefheart in the mid-Sixties to his roots-and-noir film soundtracks and central role in the birth and success of the 1996 Havana supersession Buena Vista Social Club.</p> <p>Cooder has brought true grit and emotional nuance to classic albums by Randy Newman, The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. Cooder is also a soulful preservationist, keeping vital pasts alive and dynamic in the modern world. A good example: the night Bob Dylan showed up at Cooder&#8217;s house asking for a lesson on how to play guitar like the bluesman Sleepy John Estes.</p> <p>Not to be missed.</p> <p><em>Age restriction: 5+.

<p>This smash-hit show saw its world premiere in Melbourne in 2013 and since then has packed theatres throughout Australia and New Zealand.</p> <p>In 2016 the show returned to Melbourne for a sell-out season at The Arts Centre and July saw the show triumph for a third season at The Sydney Opera House. In the spring of 2017 <em>At Last – The Etta James Story</em> toured the UK, selling out theatres in London, Liverpool, Manchester and across the country, receiving 5-star reviews and multiple standing ovations wherever it played. Starring the sensational Vika Bull <em>At Last</em> tells the story of soul legend Etta James turbulent life and features some of her most beloved songs including <em>Tell Mama, Something’s Got AHold On Me, Sugar On The Floor</em>, the heart-rending <em>I’d Rather Go Blind</em>, her iconic signature song <em>At Last</em> and more.</p> <p>Vika puts her heart and soul into this unforgettable show and is joined on stage by some of Australia’s finest and funkiest musicians. During a long and tumultuous career that saw her win six Grammy Awards and a star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Etta James has influenced a vast array of artists from Diana Ross, Janis Joplin, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones and Rod Stewart and is acknowledged as inspiring the careers of a new generation of singers from Christina Aguilera, Joss Stone, Adele and the late Amy Winehouse.</p> <p>Sadly, Etta’s frantic recording and touring schedule coincided with her ever-growing addiction problems and over time she not only sang the blues&#8230; she lived the blues. Mercifully, her passion for life and strength of character saw her conquer her demons and she continued to record and perform into her seventies. With respect, this is her story.</p> ]]>

<p>Bellini’s &#8216;Norma&#8217; is an outstanding example of the bel canto genre. First produced in 1831, it is set in Roman-occupied Gaul around 50 B.C. The story is centred on a struggle between love and duty, resulting from the illicit passion of the local arch-druidess Norma for the Roman proconsul Pollione. </p> <p>Norma is one of opera’s greatest soprano roles and has been particularly associated with Maria Callas and Joan Sutherland. <em>Casta Diva</em>, Norma’s invocation to the moon, is one of the best-known arias in all opera. It is one of the composer’s ‘long, long melodies’ which Verdi much admired.</p> <p><strong>5.45pm: Pre-concert talk</strong> for ticket holders by Ditlev Rindom.</p> ]]>

Concert Duration: 2 hours

Ticket Information: £30


<p>With writer and historian Adrian Tinniswood, Callie Gaston (soprano), <span class="caps">TBC</span> (tenor) and Natalie Burch (piano).</p> <p>There is nothing quite as beautiful as an English country house in summer. And there has never been a summer quite like that Indian summer between the two world wars, a period of gentle decline in which the sun set slowly on the British Empire and the shadows lengthened on the lawns of a thousand stately homes.</p> <p>Adrian Tinniswood, “gifted and spirited communicator”, is the author of the <em>Daily Telegraph</em> Book of the Year <em>The Long Weekend: Life in the English Country House Between the Wars</em>. His definitive social history combines scholarly anecdote and narrative with a boundless taste for gossip! Here is the society decorator Sibyl Colefax, burning rosemary on saucers so that her Chelsea villa might smell enticing to guests she hoped to bag as clients; here is the future Edward <span class="caps">VIII</span> doing his needlepoint on a low modern sofa at the newly remodelled Fort Belvedere in Windsor Great Park; and here is Edwin Lutyens worrying about Castle Drogo in Devon, the modern yet timelessly solid place he is building for the tea importer Julius Drewe. Many of these houses were at the centre of glittering social circles, where their owners entertained some of the most diverse, creative and influential people of the era – the parties were often legendary but real life in the country house during the 1920s and 1930s was not always so sunny. By turns opulent and ordinary, noble and vicious, its shadows were darker.</p> <p>During the course of this morning’s lecture recital, we will discover the truth about a world half-forgotten, draped in myth and hidden behind stiff upper lips and film-star smiles. Drawing on hundreds of memoirs, on unpublished letters and diaries, on the eye-witness testimonies of belted earls and unhappy heiresses and bullying butlers, The Long Weekend gives a voice to the people who inhabited this world. He brings to life the stately homes of England, showing how the image of the country house was carefully protected by its occupants above and below stairs, and how the reality was so much more interesting than the dream. </p> <p>Continuing the theme of life above and below stairs, Opera Prelude’s young artists will accompany Adrian, filling the morning with an eclectic selection of music, some composed for and by the occupants of these great houses, such as Lord Berners’ <em>Red Roses and Red Noses</em>, sparkling numbers by Noel Coward, and Mozart’s playful arias that mocked the difference between the classes and challenged social stereotypes of the day.</p> <p>Adrian Tinniswood is a native of Derby in the UK. He is the author of 14 books on architectural and social history, including the <em>Sunday Times</em> bestseller <em>The Long Weekend: Life in the English Country House Between the Wars</em> and <em>Behind the Throne: A Domestic History of the Royal Household</em>.</p> <p>Adrian is Senior Research Fellow in History at the University of Buckingham, and a Visiting Fellow in Heritage and History at Bath Spa University. He lives in Somerset and the west of Ireland.</p> <p>In June 2013 Adrian was awarded an <span class="caps">OBE</span> for services to heritage.</p> ]]>

<p>Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra return to Cadogan Hall with three concerts in the 2018-19 season that pay tribute to two giant figures in the history of the Mariinsky Theatre, Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Marius Petipa.</p> <p>Petipa, whose 200th anniversary is being celebrated throughout the ballet world in 2018, worked at the Mariinsky Theatre for over half a century, including more than 30 years as First Ballet Master and Principal Choreographer of the company. Petipa&#8217;s numerous full length works and definitive revivals remain corner stones of the ballet repertory today, including <em>Don Quixote</em>, <em>La bayadère</em>, <em>The Nutcracker</em> and <em>Swan Lake</em>.

<p>With Stephen Walsh (music critic and musicologist), accompanied by Maria Levandovskaya (piano) and Sophie Pullen (soprano).</p> <p>In the centenary of Debussy’s death, Stephen Walsh’s compelling new biography <em>Debussy: A Painter in Sound</em>, digs deep into Debussy’s musical advances – “the pentatonic scales, the unresolved chords, the eccentric pedalling – to show that the result was a set of “colours” that had not been heard, or seen, before in French music” (<em>The Guardian</em>). During this lecture, Stephen will explore these colours in Debussy’s vocal music in the seductive <em>Pelléas et Mélisande</em> and his intoxicating French Art Song – <em>mélodie</em> &#8211; highlighting the complex vocal demands that singing <em>en français</em> requires.</p> <p>Professor Walsh was educated at Kingston Grammar School, St Paul’s School and Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. From 1963, he worked as a music journalist in London, at first freelance, writing for <em>The Times, Daily Telegraph</em>, and <em>Financial Times</em>, then from 1966 as deputy music critic of <em>The Observer</em>. He has broadcast regularly on musical topics for the <span class="caps">BBC</span>; a major feature of <span class="caps">BBC</span> Radio 3 programming in 1995 was his six two-hour broadcasts <em>Conversations with Craft</em>, in which he talked to Stravinsky&#8217;s close associate, Robert Craft. Professor Walsh joined Cardiff University as a Senior Lecturer in Music in 1976, and now holds a personal chair in the School. He still contributes music criticism to <em>The Independent _and has since published a series of books and long papers on Bartók, Stravinsky, Kurtág and Panufnik, among others. The first volume of his major biography of Stravinsky – _Stravinsky: A Creative Spring</em> (Knopf, 1999) – won the Royal Philharmonic Society Prize for the best music book published in the UK in the year 2000. Volume Two – <em>Stravinsky: The Second Exile</em> (also Knopf) – was published in 2006.</p> ]]>

<p>The <em>St Matthew Passion</em> was composed as part of Bach’s duties as a church musician in Leipzig in the mid-1720s. In the nearly 300 years since its first performances it has firmly established itself as one of the pinnacles of Baroque art. The work sets Luther&#8217;s own translation of <em>St Matthew’s Gospel</em> (chapters 26-27) and is scored within a complex double choir structure which contains some of the composer’s most original choral writing and most memorable and heart-wrenching music for the solo voice, including the arias <em>Blute nur, Erbarme dich</em> and <em>Mache dich, mein Herze</em>.</p> <p>Following their acclaimed performance of Bach’s <em>St John Passion</em> at Douai Abbey in 2009, the choir Vox Cordis will once again be under the baton of their principal conductor, Charlie Grace. They will be joined by Aurum Vocale Baroque (leader Catherine Martin), Anna Dennis (soprano), Helen Charlston (mezzo soprano), James Way (tenor), Stephan Loges (bass), with Jeremy Budd (Evangelist), William Townend (Christus), the Farleigh School Chapel Choir and Hill House Choral Scholars.</p> <p><strong>NB.

<p>10 November marks the eve of the centenary of Armistice Day in 1918.</p> <p>This iconic work was written for the consecration in 1962 of the new Coventry Cathedral, built to replace the mediaeval building destroyed by bombing in the Second World War.</p> <p>Poems by Wilfred Owen, himself a soldier decorated for bravery, and killed shortly before the end of the war, are embedded in the ancient texts of the Latin Requiem Mass. It is a mighty plea for peace, a great challenge to all who perform it, but also a wonderful experience, as it is also for those who listen.</p> ]]>

This project aims to redress the balance, bring these tunes to a new audience and generally celebrate the work of these great jazz artists.</p> <p>Steve and Matt recorded with Walton in 2007, Matt was mentored by Bob Cranshaw (Duke Pearson&#8217;s bass player) during the five years that he lived in New York and Rob has studied with David Hazeltine (Cedar Walton&#8217;s mentor), so there is a discernible link to these performers and the composers of this music.</p> <p>A great afternoon of swinging tunes from the hard bop era played by five of London&#8217;s top straight-ahead jazz musicians.</p> <p>Doors open 1.30pm.</p> ]]>

<p>The <span class="caps">MOBO</span> Award-winning Kairos 4tet saxophonist branches off into trio format to explore standards past and present, plus original compositions with Mercury Prize-nominated Conor Chaplin (bass) and Corrie Dick (drums).</p> <p><strong>Adam Waldmann</strong> saxophone</p> <p>British Saxophonist/Composer Adam Waldmann has worked with the likes of Alicia Keys, Mark Ronson, Mark Guiliana, Alan Hampton, Paloma Faith, Tinie Tempah, beatbox sensation Shlomo, The Sam Crowe Group, Will Vinson, Animal Husbandry and FinnSilver amongst numerous others. In 2010 Waldmann made the leap to band leader and released Kairos 4tet’s debut <em>Kairos Moment</em>, an album that marked him out as “a powerful new voice in British jazz” (<span class="caps">BBC</span>), “ a precociously talented composer and player” (All About Jazz) and as a “young master in the making” (Time Out). Their second release, <em>Statement of Intent</em> was voted no.2 in <span class="caps">MOJO</span> Magazine’s albums of the year and led to the <span class="caps">MOBO</span> Award for ‘Best Jazz Act’. In 2013 came <em>Everything We Hold</em>, Waldmann’s critically acclaimed song-based collaboration with actor/writer/lyricist Rupert Friend.</p> <p><strong>Conor Chaplin</strong> bass</p> <p>Conor is best known currently as part of Mercy Prize nominated group Dinosaur, led by trumpeter-composer Laura Jurd, as well as other contemporary original jazz projects including Flying Machines and formerly WorldService Project.

He is an essential component of any project lead by Laura Jurd including Mercury Prize-shortlisted Dinosaur; provides the intricate and fluent sick work in the Elliot Galvin Trio; brings intense, free colours to Danish powerhouse bassist Jasper Høiby’s exciting Fellow Creatures; writes deep and spiritual music for Blue-Eyed Hawk; and provides the full spectrum of rhythmic elements for guitar wunderkind Rob Luft’s ensemble. He also leads his 9-piece supergroup Impossible Things, releasing his debut album with the ensemble in November 2015, selling out concerts across the UK ever since.</p> ]]>

<p>The London Jazz Festival has a worldwide reputation for presenting the very finest in cutting-edge jazz. During its ten-day run you’ll be able to hear a wide range of artists producing exciting, challenging and daring music that will astound and astonish, delight and discombobulate. That’s exactly what The Jazz Repertory Company will be doing in <em>The World Gone Mad</em>, only our music is over 100 years old.</p> <p>100 years ago World War 1 came to an end after 10 million had died; the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1919 was to carry off a further 50 million. In Great Britain, women had finally been granted the vote (celebrated in our concert with the song <em>That Ragtime Suffragette</em>) and political upheavals were going on all over post-war Europe.</p> <p>The soundtrack to all this was being supplied by the Americans – if any confirmation were needed that the Western World had finally gone completely off its rocker it was to be found in the Ragtime, Blues and early Jazz that became such a hit across Britain and Europe, much to the consternation and downright annoyance of the guardians of moral and musical propriety.</p> <p>We’ll be presenting this music with all of the freshness, wild irreverence and vulgarity it had when first heard. In its undiluted form it still has the power to shock and surprise. It also amuses – it was popular entertainment above all. The audience of the time sought novelty: some as a means of escaping the world gone mad, some as a means of joining it.</p> <p>Much of the concert’s programme features the music of British composers and bands responding to the new musical influences coming from over the Atlantic. We end in 1919 as this was the year when the first American jazz bands visited Great Britain – the extraordinarily successful Original Dixieland Jazz Band and The Southern Syncopators featuring the great Sidney Bechet.</p> <p>The music of this time is now largely unknown. African-American and European traditions were blended to create something new which has dominated our musical lives ever since.</p> <p>Come and discover how it began.</p> <p>Part of the Jazz Repertory Company’s 10th anniversary celebration of its association with Cadogan Hall.</p> ]]>

Monty Alexander

Sunday 25 November, 4pm

Ticket Information: £35, £30, £25


<p>Fifty-five years after he moved to the United States from Kingston, Jamaica, his hometown, pianist Monty Alexander is an American classic, touring the world relentlessly with various projects, delighting a global audience drawn to his vibrant personality and soulful message. His spirited conception is one informed by the timeless verities: endless melody-making, effervescent grooves, sophisticated voicings, a romantic spirit, and a consistent predisposition, as Alexander accurately states, “to build up the heat and kick up a storm.”</p> <p>In the course of any given performance, Alexander applies those aesthetics to repertoire spanning a broad range of jazz and Jamaican musical expression – the American songbook and the blues, gospel and bebop, calypso and reggae. Like his ‘eternal inspiration’, Erroll Garner, Alexander – cited as the fifth greatest jazz pianist ever in <em>The Fifty Greatest Jazz Piano Players of All Time</em> (Hal Leonard Publishing) and mentioned in Robert Doerschuk’s <em>88: The Giants of Jazz Piano</em> – gives the hardcore-jazz-obsessed much to dig into while also communicating the message to the squarest ‘civilian’.</p> <p>He performs tonight with his trio; <strong>JJ Shakur</strong> on bass and <strong>Jason Brown</strong> on drums.</p> <p>Support comes from <strong>Tomorrow’s Warriors Female Frontline</strong>, one of a handful of flagship ensembles to be produced by Tomorrow’s Warriors, the organisation credited with developing some of the most exciting jazz artists and bands in the UK – Denys Baptiste, Soweto Kinch, Zara McFarlane, Nubya Garcia, and Gary Crosby’s Nu Troop, Empirical, Binker &amp; Moses, and Nerija. Their Female Frontline band embodies the Warrior spirit in more than just serious musical talent and looks set to expose yet another generation of fantastic jazz artists to eagerly awaiting audiences. Led by alto saxophonist, Aleksandra Topczewska under the tutelage of internationally acclaimed double bassist and bandleader Gary Crosby <span class="caps">OBE</span>, the band features a host of excellent musicians delivering a set of upbeat jazz standards, funky grooves and a contemporary take on some well-known classics.</p> ]]>

<p>Mendelssohn himself banned his Fifth Symphony from being performed and wanted it destroyed. Which would be a terrible advert for it if he hadn’t been so completely, utterly, wrong. It’s a superbly crafted piece of music: grand, intellectual and remarkably human.</p> <p>Of Mozart’s 27 piano concertos, number 21 is probably both the most well-known and the most technically challenging. And with good reason – written on a symphonic scale, it’s bursting with tunes and opera-like wit.</p> ]]>

Commissioned by the <span class="caps">NAC</span>, <em>Golden slumbers kiss your eyes&#8230;</em> sets folk songs and lullabies in seven languages, all brought vividly to life by Korean-Canadian countertenor David DQ Lee and London Voices.</p> <p>Next, brilliant Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki takes to the stage to perform Ravel’s dazzling, jazz-influenced Concerto in G &#8211; deftly navigating its textures and harmonies with his virtuosic technique. Audiences will quickly hear why <em><span class="caps">BBC</span> Music Magazine</em> calls this Deutsche Grammophon recording artist ‘perhaps the most &#8216;complete&#8217; pianist of his age’.</p> <p>The evening ends on a bucolic note with Brahms’ optimistic, forthright Second Symphony.</p> ]]>

<p>The great set of Vespers by Sergei Rachmaninov may not be associated with the style of The Tallis Scholars, but it is wrong to assume that there is only one way of performing a masterpiece. I have often directed a leading Moscow choir in Tallis and Byrd and found the results both legitimate and heartening. And having been fascinated by the Orthodox repertoire since John Tavener introduced me to it in the late ’70s, I have revisited that interest here.<br /> (Peter Phillips)</p> ]]>
