<p>Not seen in London since 2016, the charismatic Drexler returns with his new project, debuting songs from his evocative new album <em>Salvavidas de Hielo</em>, full of rhythm, experimentation, melodies and, above all, great songs.</p> <p>Drexler is a warm and engaging storyteller, with a magical rapport with his audience. He has the voice of a tenor but comes close to the warmth of a baritone, and while Latin rhythms predominate in his wide-ranging musical pursuits, he’s also partial to a rock beat or a country waltz if the opportunity arises.</p> <p>Since winning an Oscar in 2005 for his theme song to <em>The Motorcycle Diaries</em>, Uruguay’s Jorge Drexler has become an eminence across the Latin diaspora, his songs much covered and graced with awards. Where his last album, <em>Bailar en la Cueva</em>, successfully embraced funk, electronica and rap, here he returns to the clever acoustic samba that made his name. A qualified doctor, Drexler boasts a questing intellect: referencing Gabriel García Márquez on <em>Despedir a los glaciares</em>, a sad farewell to our planet’s glaciers; addressing migration on <em>Movimiento</em> &#8211; how migration is a connective tissue we share as humans; and the ephemeral nature of life in <em>Salvavidas de Hielo</em>.</p> <p><em>&#8216;Jorge Drexler is a modern-day Renaissance man&#8217;</em> (<span class="caps">NPR</span> online)</p> ]]>

<p>In this morning’s lecture, Dr Rosamund Bartlett and pianist Maria Levandovskaya take us back to the glory days of imperial St Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre, highlighting the composers, directors, singers and conductors who helped to build its international reputation.

Her publications include &#8216;Wagner and Russia&#8217; and &#8216;Victory Over the Sun: The World’s First Futurist Opera&#8217;, as well as biographies of Chekhov and Tolstoy, whose works she has translated for Oxford World’s Classics.

Ask any singer and they will have a hundred stories of errors and accidents onstage, most of which go unnoticed by the audience. There are, however, always one or two that simply can’t be explained away! </p> <p>Tenor Alex Haigh will explore just what happens when the worst occurs in this morning’s lecture, covering the humble cracked voice, destruction of sets by enraged singers and even inebriated musicians playing the wrong opera in the second act! More than any other art form, opera walks the fine line between triumph and disaster, and it is this balancing act that we are drawn to; after all, at this highest point of tension is where some of opera’s greatest successes are found, and without the knowledge that it could all fall apart at any moment, where would the excitement be? Come join Alex on a romp through some of the lowest moments in opera’s history, safe in the knowledge that even when the scenery collapses, the diva is ill and the maestro is asleep, the music ultimately wins the day!</p> ]]>

Artists: * with Rosie Clifford (mezzo-soprano) accompanied by Natalie Burch

Ticket Information: £30


<p>Tosca, plummeting to her doom from the roof of the Castel Sant’Angelo; Juliette, stabbing herself to be reunited with her dying lover Romeo; Rodrigo, shot in front of his powerless best friend; opera is full of beloved characters meeting grisly ends and sad endings, and audiences can’t get enough! What is it about watching misery onstage that so appeals to our collective psyche? </p> <p>In this lecture, Rosie Clifford will take us on a voyage through the history of tragedy, from its earliest roots in Greek drama, right up to the present day. It’s clear that as audiences, we gain a sense of catharsis from watching characters undergo the worst possible events; why is this, and why does opera in particular embrace this so completely? Operatic tragedy is such a recognisable form that it has almost become a cliché, and plots seem to become ever more convoluted and desperate in their efforts to doom their characters to horrible ends. However, as W. H. Auden said, “No good opera plot can be sensible, for people do not sing when they are feeling sensible”! Leave your scepticism at the door and join Rosie for an adventure through opera’s gloomiest – and yet most transcendent – moments and discover just why it is that we can’t keep away from tragedy.</p> ]]>

Tuesday 29 May, 10.30am

Concert Duration: approx. 2 hours

Ticket Information: £30


<p>Dame Anne Evans kindly leads this morning’s event with emerging young singers.</p> <p>She made her debut as Countess Ceprano in <em>Rigoletto</em> in 1967 in Geneva and went on to make her debut in a leading role in 1968 as Fiordiligi in <em>Così fan tutte</em> at the then Sadler&#8217;s Wells, later English National Opera in 1968 to critical acclaim.</p> <p>In the early years of her career, she sang many of the leading Puccini and Mozart soprano roles, like Tosca and Countess Almaviva in <em>Le nozze di Figaro</em>. In the late sixties, she started to work with the lighter Wagner roles, like Elsa in <em>Lohengrin</em> and Senta in <em>The Flying Dutchman</em>, roles that became trademark. However, it was the role of Brünnhilde that would earn her international fame, most notably in the Wagner temple of Bayreuth in 1989-1992, a performance which was also captured on CD and video (now transferred to <span class="caps">DVD</span>, and announced on Blu-ray by the end of 2012), conducted by Daniel Barenboim and directed by Harry Kupfer. In this performance she sang with Siegfried Jerusalem and John Tomlinson. She also earned an Olivier Award for this production. She also played Isolde in <em>Tristan und Isolde</em>, a role often considered to be her finest achievement.</p> <p>In 2003, she retired from performing to dedicate herself to giving Masterclasses and to coach other British singers in Wagnerian performance techniques. Her last public performance was in 2005 in a comeback performance in Cardiff doing excerpts from her celebrated Isolde and other Wagner performances.</p> <p>She was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (<span class="caps">DBE</span>) in the 2000 Queen&#8217;s Birthday Honours &#8220;for services to music”.</p> <p>Founded in 2012, the International Opera Awards are the ‘Oscars of the opera world’ with winners from more than 25 countries. The Opera Awards Foundation, their charity and <em>raison d’être</em>, has so far raised over £240,000 to support aspiring talent in opera throughout the world. Dame Anne Evans has been a patron of the awards since they were founded. The Foundation has supported numerous Opera Prelude singers over the years and is delighted to be collaborating to present this morning&#8217;s Masterclass.</p> <p>For more information about The Opera Awards Foundation please visit <a href="http://www.operaawards.org">www.operaawards.org</a> or contact <a href="mailto:info@operaawards.org">info@operaawards.org</a> 0207 104 2057</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.

<p>Magical French music for a midsummer&#8217;s evening. Saint-Saëns&#8217; irrepressible <em>Danse macabre</em> depicts Death himself playing his violin for the dance of the skeletons, setting a spirited tone for Ravel&#8217;s colourful Piano Concerto in G. Infused with 1920s jazz syncopations, Ravel&#8217;s masterpiece is by turns witty and tender, and always lyrical.</p> <p>These lively pieces are juxtaposed with Elysian reverie in Fauré&#8216;s pastoral miniature, <em>Pavane</em>, and his ethereal Requiem. First performed shortly after the death of the composer&#8217;s mother, the Fauré Requiem is justly one of the most consoling and cherished pieces in choral repertoire.</p> <p><small>(*in association with The Keyboard Charitable Trust)</small></p> ]]>

<p>One of Massenet’s most popular operas, <em>Thaïs</em> was first performed in 1894, two years after <em>Werther</em>. Set in Alexandria in the fourth century AD, it tells the story of Thaïs, a courtesan, and Athanaël, a monk who converts her to the Christian faith but cannot prevent himself from becoming enslaved by her beauty.</p> <p>The <em>Méditation</em>, the violin solo which depicts Thaïs’s awakening faith, is one of the most famous of operatic excerpts, but the whole score shows Massenet at his best. The arias for Thaïs are brilliant and seductive and the confrontations between Thaïs and Athanaël have music of great beauty and emotional power.</p> <p><em>Concert performance in French with English surtitles.</em></p> <p><strong>5.45pm: Pre-concert talk</strong> by Simon Bainbridge for ticket holders.</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> 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> ]]>

<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>Jazz pianist Tord Gustavsen’s music continues to enchant and evolve, reaching out to an ever-growing audience with a blend of memorable melody, subtle groove, and a gentle depth of purpose. His latest CD – due for late-summer release on <span class="caps">ECM</span> Records – returns to his long-established trio format, embracing the full-sounding simplicity of the pianist’s concept of “Nordic blues”, with a series of new compositions in dialogue with ancient Scandinavian hymns and a strikingly original response to Bach’s chorales. He is joined by bassist Sigurd Hole and drummer Jarle Vespestad.</p> <p><em>‘…nothing less than magical’</em> (Downbeat)</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> ]]>
