<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: £30 (unreserved seating) , ,Please call the Box Office on 020 7730 4500 to book.


<p>Today’s masterclass and discussion celebrates the recent launch of Dame Felicity’s book <em>Il nous faut de l’amour</em> (co-written with Olivier Bellamy). </p> <p>During the first half of the morning, Phoebe will have the great privilege of interviewing Dame Felicity. We will delve into her history as one of the great exponents of the Strauss and Mozart operatic repertoire (having sung both Octavian and the Marshallin to equally enraptured critical response, she truly is unique!), whilst not forgetting the incredible and palpable effect she has had on our art song heritage; co-creating the <em>Songmakers Almanac</em> with Graham Johnson in 1975. Having appeared as the eponymous heroines of <em>La belle Hélène</em> and <em>La Grande-Duchesse de Gérolstein</em>, there is no grande dame of opera that is more closely associated with the works of Offenbach than the Dame herself.</p> <p>Honoured with a <span class="caps">DBE</span> in 1996, Dame Felicity (affectionately known simply as &#8216;Flott&#8217;) has had an unparalleled artistic career spanning both opera and song. A passionate Francophile, Flott was awarded the titles <em>Officier dans l&#8217;Ordre des Arts et des Lettres</em> in 1990 and a <em>Chevalier de l’Ordre National de la Légion d&#8217;Honneur</em> in 2001, both in recognition of her services to music in the French language. Making her debut as Pamina in 1975 at the <span class="caps">ENO</span>, she has gone on to interpret many leading soprano roles at The Royal Opera House, the Glyndebourne Festival, the Metropolitan Opera, the Salzburg Festival, and the Vienna Staatsoper, to name but a few.</p> <p>After the break, let us take you back to the <em>Belle Époque</em>, in the presence of the divine Dame Felicity Lott, soprano and chanteuse of international acclaim when Phoebe will have the immense honour of working with her on arias from a range of Offenbach&#8217;s oft-misunderstood operettas, <em>La Périchole</em> and <em>La belle Hélène</em>.</p> ]]>

<![CDATA[Big Big Train]]> Cadogan Hall 0.00000000 0.00000000

Friday 29 & Saturday 30 September 2017, 7pm

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. Please note start time.</strong></p> ]]>

<p>Stuart Skelton is one of the finest heldentenors on the stage today, critically acclaimed for his outstanding musicianship, tonal beauty, and intensely dramatic portrayals. His repertoire encompasses many of opera’s most challenging roles, from Wagner&#8217;s Parsifal, Tristan, Lohengrin, Erik, and Siegmund, to Strauss’s Kaiser, Beethoven’s Florestan, Saint-Saëns’ Samson, Dvořák’s Dimitrij, and Britten’s Peter Grimes.</p> <p>The tenor opens the 2016-17 Metropolitan Opera season in the title role of the company’s new production of Tristan und Isolde conducted by Sir Simon Rattle. It is the first time the opera has opened a season at the House since 1937 and Stuart Skelton is the first Australian singer to have the honor of opening The Met’s season in a title role since Dame Joan Sutherland. Stuart Skelton reached the zenith of the tenor repertoire in this role at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden in a new production by Mariusz Treliński and he later assayed English language performances in a new production designed by Sir Anish Kapoor at the English National Opera directed by Daniel Kramer and conducted by Edward Gardner; the tenor also gave concert performances of Tristan und Isolde with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker. Operatic appearances of the season feature return engagements with the Opéra national de Paris in the title role of Lohengrin led by Philippe Jordan, Die Walküre at the Deutsche Oper Berlin under the baton of Donald Runnicles, and Jenůfa with the Bayerische Staatsoper conducted by Tomáš Hanus. Among the many concerts the tenor gives over the season, highlights include Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with Sir Andrew Davis and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and with Louis Langrée and the Cincinnati Symphony, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with Gianandrea Noseda and the <span class="caps">BBC</span> Philharmonic Orchestra, and concert performances of Peter Grimes with Edward Gardner and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. </p> <p>Named Male Singer of the Year at the 2014 International Opera Awards, Mr. Skelton twice has been honoured with the Sir Robert Helpmann Award, once for his performances of Siegmund in the State Opera of South Australia’s 2004 production of the Ring Cycle, and again in 2010 for Best Male Performer in a Lead Role for his portrayal of Peter Grimes for Opera Australia. He received a 2010 Green Room Award for A Streetcar Named Desire and was nominated for an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera for his performances of Peter Grimes with the English National Opera.

The infectious melodies ensure this is a firm favourite of the classical canon.</p> <p>Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony, known as the <em>Pastoral</em> Symphony, complete with birds chirping, babbling brooks and thundering storms, closes the concert with its vibrant musical picture of the great outdoors.</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>In this talk, Ed Ballard (baritone) explores the early history of opera in London. How did this continental invention first arrive? Who were the singers who performed it, where and for whom? Who was composing for them? And how were these performances so different to the way we understand a night at the opera today? Looking at this period helps us understand how London came to be such an important city both in the performance of opera and in the development of those who produced and performed it. With live demonstrations, illustrations and a trip into the world of rakes, fops, harlots, coffee houses and gin palaces this talk should illuminate much about both an art form and a city that we love.</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> ]]>

<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.

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>Not only is Jane Austen celebrated on the new £10 note in the bicentennial year of her death: her enduring appeal is further portrayed through words and music by soprano, Sophie Pullen, and musicologist and pianist, Penelope Cave. Together, they offer an entertaining and informative study-morning, in which they outline and illustrate the novelist’s interaction with music from her period, and venture to make connections beyond. In addition to references to the Austen family music collection; Jane’s piano lessons; and the use of music within her novels; Sophie and Penelope will intersperse their presentation by performing a wide range of songs and operatic arias from Handel to Rossini and folk songs from the British Isles. Encompassing composers whose vocal works reflect the universality of the subjects Jane Austen expounded with such intimate acuity, in her epoch, but that endure to ours.</p> <p>Penelope Cave is an international, prize-winning harpsichordist. Her solo CD, <em>From Lisbon to Madrid</em>, received five stars from the <em><span class="caps">BBC</span> Music Magazine</em> and Prima Facie has recently issued <em>Panorama</em>, her recording of 20th-century harpsichord repertoire. Since completing her PhD in 2014, on Georgian piano music in the English country house, at the University of Southampton, she was invited to be artist-in-residence at Dyrham Park in 2015, for the National Trust, and also became an Attingham scholar. Dr Cave has given papers for academic conferences in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, Lucca, Trondheim, Paris and Oxford, with particular reference to early-piano repertoire and pedagogy; music related to writers, Jane Austen and Isabelle de Charriere; domestic music-making; and musical correspondence in Regency England. She has recently performed at Chawton House, and completed a chapter for the forthcoming book on Clementi and the British Musical Scene to be published by Routledge.</p> ]]>

<p>This is a unique collaboration between acclaimed jazz pianist/composer Kate Williams and the Guastalla String Quartet, with repertoire including material by Bill Evans, Cole Porter and A.C. Jobim as well as originals by Williams. The style of writing and arranging exploits the varied sound pallet of both string quartet and jazz trio, creating contrasts between the improvised and the notated, and between sustained textures and strong grooves. As with her previous arranging ventures, Kate is seeking a fully integrated approach (this is definitely not a jazz trio with string accompaniment!), as this line-up provides a wealth of interesting instrumental sonorities.</p> <p>The project was launched in summer 2016 with a CD release and a UK tour supported by Arts Council England. Both the CD and live performances have received glowing reviews, with the CD rated No. 2 in <em><span class="caps">MOJO</span></em> magazine&#8217;s top jazz albums of 2016.</p> <p><em>&#8220;A sumptuous jazz piano trio plus string quartet set from the consistently thoughtful and inventive Kate Williams.&#8221;</em><br /> (<span class="caps">MOJO</span> magazine &#9733;&#9733;&#9733;&#9733;)</p> <p><em>&#8220;&#8230;crisp, incisive and totally at one with the rhythmic ebb and flow.&#8221;</em> <br /> (The Observer &#9733;&#9733;&#9733;&#9733;)</p> <p><em>&#8220;It was one of those rare concerts you wished would not end.&#8221;</em><br /> (The Jazz Breakfast)</p> ]]>

<p>In a career that stretches back to the ’60s, iconic jazz vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater has stood shoulder to shoulder with many of music’s greats like Dizzy Gillespie and Sonny Rollins. She brings the sounds of her new album, <em>Memphis&#8230; Yes, I&#8217;m Ready</em>, inspired by the sound of Memphis R&amp;B from the mid-late 1960s. Think Gladys Knight, Otis Redding, Al Green and Sam Cooke.</p> <p><em>‘Dee Dee Bridgewater has a technique and musicality that bests most performers of her generation.’</em> (The Guardian)</p> <p>Alto-saxophone band leader Camilla George formed her Quartet in 2014, rising through the ranks of Tomorrow&#8217;s Warriors, the Nu Civilisation Orchestra, Jazz Jamaica and Courtney Pine&#8217;s Venus Warriors band. Her African roots and Caribbean ancestry shine through in a mix of jazz, calypso, afrobeat and hard bop with both precision and playfulness.</p> <p><em>&#8216;George’s compositions possess memorable melodies and strong grooves in equal measure and her music is eminently accessible with a youthful energy that is likely to give it considerable across the board appeal.

<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> ]]>

The central figure in the artistic world of St Petersburg, Paris, London, Rome, Berlin and Madrid, he formed close friendship with Stravinsky, Coco Chanel, Prokofiev and Jean Cocteau.</p> <p>Dr Natalia Murray will introduce us to Diaghilev as major patron of visual arts, starting with his exhibitions of Western-European art in St Petersburg and the magazine and artistic movement which he launched in 1898 – <em>Mir Iskusstva</em> (World of Art) and moving on to his most famous enterprise Ballet Russes, which staged 70 ballets and 15 operas in Europe and America.</p> <p>After the closure of <em>World of Art</em> journal in 1904 and the conclusive <em>World of Art</em> exhibition in 1906, Diaghilev turned increasingly westward, preparing the way for his establishment in 1909 of the Ballet Russes. The major part of the <em>World of Art</em> circle, including Bakst and Benois, followed Diaghilev and graced his new enterprise with their skills.</p> <p>In the West Diaghilev strived to present Russians not as fellow Europeans, but as new oriental people, which made his enterprise much more interesting and exciting in the West. Back in 1897, Diaghilev outlined his ambitions in a letter to Benois: <em>“To polish Russian painting, cleanse it, and most importantly, present it to the West, glorify it in the West.”</em></p> <p>Many extraordinary pieces of music were composed especially for Ballet Russes at Diaghilev’s request and he often collaborated with Russian as well as French composers. During this morning’s lecture given by Dr Natalia Murray, you will hear arias and songs by Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Gounod and Satie, sung by Callie Gaston, with illustrations from the piano by Russian pianist, Maria Levandovskaya who will also play some of Prokofiev’s piano pieces.</p> <p>Before being awarded PhD at the Courtauld Institute of Art, Dr Natalia Murray read History of Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in St Petersburg and completed the PhD course at the Hermitage Museum. In 2012 she wrote a book <em>The Unsung Hero of the Russian Avant-Garde</em>. The Life and Times of Nikolay Punin (Leiden-Boston: Brill Academic, 2012).</p> <p>At present she is teaching courses in 19th- &amp; 20th-century Russian art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, working as Head of Education and Public Programmes at <span class="caps">GRAD</span> (Gallery for Russian Art and Design) and curating exhibitions of Russian art in England. She has recently curated a major exhibition <em>Revolution. Russian Art. 1917-1932</em> which took place at the Royal Academy of Arts earlier this year and she is currently editing her next book on post-revolutionary festivals in Petrograd.</p> ]]>

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.

<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> ]]>

<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>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> ]]>

<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> ]]>

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> ]]>

<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> ]]>
