Monday 22 October, 7.30pm

Ticket Information: £40 (premium seats), £30


<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 <em>Norma</em> 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><em>Concert performance sung in Italian with English surtitles.</em></p> <p><strong>5.45pm: Pre-concert talk</strong> for ticket holders by Ditlev Rindom.</p> ]]>

Tuesday 30 October, 10.30am

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>Mozart originally wrote this as a triple piano concerto, but later rearranged it for two pianos.

Friday 2 November, doors 6pm

Ticket Information: £29.50


<p>At 17, Roddy Frame and his band Aztec Camera debuted on Glasgow’s legendary Postcard Records, releasing two singles for the label before moving on to Rough Trade where the unique acoustic sound of their debut album <em>High Land Hard Rain</em> was responsible for inspiring a whole generation of indie bands.</p> <p>Aztec Camera’s career involved an array of intriguing collaborations – from recordings with legendary R&amp;B producer Tommy Lipuma and Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto to a duet with The Clash’s Mick Jones on Good Morning Britain.</p> <p>Along the the way, they released singles like <em>Oblivious, Walk Out To Winter, How Men Are</em> and <em>Somewhere In My Heart</em> which would all become radio favourites.</p> <p>In 2002 Frame released the solo album <em>Surf</em>, a landmark album of new compositions recorded in single takes, accompanied only by his acoustic guitar. The record was a massive critical success; most reviews agreeing on <em>Surf</em> being a seminal piece of work by a voice still underrated by the general public.</p> <p>It was followed by a string of dates at Soho’s legendary jazz club Ronnie Scott’s and the acclaimed follow-up album <em>Western Skies</em> in 2006.</p> <p>Following a long hiatus, broken only by a warmly received tour of the UK in 2011, and by a sell-out string of prestigious shows in the UK to celebrate the 30th anniversary of <em>High Land Hard Rain</em>, Roddy was inspired to return to recording.</p> <p><em>Seven Dials</em>, the result, received a rapturous reception and Roddy celebrated its release with a UK and European tour.</p> <p>Since then Roddy has been writing and preparing to go back on the road later this year.</p> <p><em>Venue doors open 6pm.</em></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>. Tchaikovsky&#8217;s <em>The Sleeping Beauty</em> which features in this Mariinsky concert, was comissioned by the Mariinsky Theatre which gave its world premiere in St Petersburg in 1890.</p> <p>Tchaikovsky&#8217;s close association with the Mariinsky Theatre included numerous opera and ballet commissions as well as symphonic performances. He conducted the Imperial Orchestra (forerunner of today&#8217;s Mariinsky Orchestra) on many occasions, including, in 1888, in the world premiere of his Fifth Symphony.</p> <p>This concert celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Mariinsky Theatre Trust (UK).</p> <p><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> ]]>

Ticket Information: £30


<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</em> 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 – <em>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> ]]>

Vaughan Williams’ Oboe Concerto, filled with folk-inspired pastorals and a show-stopping finale, provides a virtuosic showpiece for the RPO’s Principal Oboe John Roberts.

<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>This new project was formed to perform the timeless compositions of two pianist/composers associated with the Hard Bop era of jazz and the Blue Note Record label: Cedar Walton and Duke Pearson. Although some of these tunes have become jazz standards (Walton&#8217;s <em>Bolivia</em> and <em>Ugetsu</em>, and Pearson&#8217;s <em>Jeanine</em> for example) there is a great wealth of material by these composers that is very rarely played. 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> ]]>

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).

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>With Rosie Clifford (mezzo) and Opera Prelude’s young artists, accompanied by Natalie Burch. </p> <p><em>&#8220;Glitter and be gay, that&#8217;s the part I play&#8221;</em> – so sings Cunegonde in Leonard Bernstein&#8217;s masterpiece <em>Candide</em>, lamenting the loss of her virtue in exchange for the superficial whirl of jewels, parties and high society. Opera has never been short of such figures – apparently blessed with every gift the world can bestow and yet privately struggling – both in operatic characters and in the singers themselves.</p> <p>The first divas (and, indeed, divos) of the operatic world were the superstars of their age; precursors of the screen idols of the Silver Age of Hollywood, whose lives often produced uncanny similarities, they blazed meteoric paths through society before all too often sinking into obscurity.</p> <p>From the singers catapulted to stardom by Mozart and Rossini to the legends of both stage and screen, and the characters who linked the two, join Rosie Clifford for a morning of glitz, glamour and vocal fireworks!</p> ]]>

Its story of a chosen people escaping from captivity and hostile forces also chimed with the national self-confidence of the Victorian era.</p> <p>In today&#8217;s more uncertain political environment, and with the revival of more of Handel&#8217;s other music, it can be better appreciated on its own merits as amongst his finest musical achievements.</p> ]]>

<p>Mark Wigglesworth, a notable interpreter of British music, opens the programme of English music with Delius’ gentle tone-poem <em>The Walk to the Paradise Garden</em>. Beginning with beautiful dream-like wind solos, the tranquil mood is soon shifted when Walton’s Suite from <em>Henry V</em> conjures stirring battle scenes. Composed for Lawrence Olivier’s remarkable 1944 film <em>Henry V</em>, this imaginative score fuses romantic tenderness with medieval beauty in a whirl of pure cinematic excitement.</p> <p>Vaughan Williams’ Fifth Symphony rounds out the concert with some of his most serene music – its pastoral tranquillity is set again against the backdrop of 1940s war-torn Europe.</p> ]]>

Ticket Information: £45, £35, £25, £15


<p>J. S. Bach&#8217;s wife referred to it as the ‘Greatest Passion’. The composer himself broke with protocol, penning the score with red as well as brown ink. Both knew that in the Matthew Passion, Bach had created something special – perhaps even something monumental. One of the finest choral works, perhaps pieces of music, ever written, this tale of the Passion of Christ combines drama with devotion like no other. It questions, challenges and reassures, and contains some of the most beautiful and exquisitely crafted music from a composer who excelled in both those fields.</p> <p>The Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea is one of the finest professional church choirs in the UK whose members regularly sing with many of the world’s leading consort groups, such as The Sixteen, Tallis Scholars, Stile Antico and Monteverdi Choir. All solos, bar those of the Evangelist &amp; Christus, will be taken by members of the choir. William Vann, Director of Music at the Royal Hospital Chelsea joins forces with the renowned early-instrument forces of the Academy of Ancient Music and world-famed Evangelist James Gilchrist to present Bach’s musical telling of Christ’s final hours on earth.</p> <p><em>‘First-class personnel… it’s the tension and subtlety in the performances that catch the ear’</em> (Gramophone, on the RH Choir)</p> <p><em>‘…model singing from the Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea under the meticulous direction of William Vann’</em> (The Observer, on the RH Choir)</p> <p><em>‘playing of irresistible colour and exuberance’</em> (The Telegraph, on the <span class="caps">AAM</span>)</p> <p><strong>NB.

<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.

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> ]]>
