<p>Conductor Michael Sanderling has headed Dresden’s venerable 145 year old Philharmonic since 2011 and has a unique rapport with the orchestra. They return to Cadogan Hall to perform Beethoven’s first and last completed symphonies.</p> <p>It seems fitting that Beethoven composed his First Symphony at the dawn of a new century, 1799-1800, for even contemporaries realised that his symphonies changed the conception of the genre. Beethoven’s First Symphony came at age 29. It appeared late in what scholars define as the first period of Beethoven’s career, just a year or two before the crisis brought about by his gradual loss of hearing.</p> <p>Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony was completed in 1824, when he was almost completely deaf and it is almost universally considered one of Beethoven’s greatest works, and many consider it one of the greatest compositions in the western musical canon.</p> ]]>

Saturday 1 April, 7.30pm

Programme: pg. Vaughan Williams ## Sancta Civitas ,pg. Puccini ## Messa di Gloria

Artists: * Wimbledon Youth Choir ,* Trebles from Shrewsbury House School ,* Thames Festival Orchestra , ,pg. Adam Tunnicliffe ## tenor ,pg. Matthew Hargreaves ## bass-baritone

Ticket Information: £30, £27, £20, £14


<p>A concert of deep contrasts in mood: Vaughan Williams’ hauntingly evocative cantata, with its great visionary scope and marvellously complex choral forces, and the youthful Puccini’s exuberant and tuneful Mass setting.</p> <p>Vaughan Williams’ haunting cantata, written in response to the First World War, describes the end of time and the descent of the holy city from Heaven. It is a visionary work of great power, rarely performed due to the complex choral input, including a distant children’s choir. This performance is at the request of the late Ian Buist, scholar, humanitarian, gay rights activist and distinguished civil servant, who sang <em>Sanctas Civitas</em> with the Oxford Bach Choir, conducted by Vaughan Williams himself.</p> <p><em>Messa di Gloria</em> is an exciting insight into the brilliant potential shown by Giacomo Puccini as a student: it was his graduation exercise at Lucca Music Conservatoire. The work is a confident <em>tour-de-force</em>, brimming with colour, vitality and good tunes.</p> ]]>

<p>For its second visit to Cadogan Hall this season Brussels Philharmonic brings with it award-winning French cellist Jérôme Pernoo and they continue with their aim of introducing audiences to the present century’s best symphonic compositions. Connesson’s <em>Maslenitsa</em> is inspired by the Russian Sun Festival, a lively start to the concert, celebrating the arrival of spring.</p> <p>Chief Conductor Stéphane Denève and the Brussels Philharmonic have recently won the coveted 2016 Diapason d’Or of the Year for their Deutsche Grammophon release <em>Pour sortir au jour</em>. The album, featuring 21st century works by composer Guillaume Connesson, has earned universal acclaim from the classical press since its release in Summer 2016. In addition to this prestigious honour, the album was awarded Classica magazine’s <span class="caps">CHOC</span> of the Year 2016 and nominated for the International Classical Music Awards (<span class="caps">ICMA</span>).</p> <p>The Russian theme continues with Prokofiev’s <em>Sinfonia Concertante</em>, the solo cello part of which calls for a player of exceptional technique and musicality, premiered in 1952 by Mstislav Rostropovich.</p> <p>The final piece in the evening’s concert is Rachmaninov‘s final composition. It was, he said, his ‘final flicker’ and today many regard it as his finest music. Originally titled <em>Fantastic Dances in three parts: Noon, Twilight and Midnight, Symphonic Dances</em> is made up of three movements all in dance style. In fact, Rachmaninov had intended for them to be choreographed.</p> ]]>

<p>The operatic canon overflows with male composers, and there is no shortage of female roles. Today’s lecture explores the relationships between some exceptional women and the composers who, inspired by their talents, wrote for them. The links have been wide ranging &#8211; from the familial such as Mozart and the four Weber sisters, marital in the case of Rossini and his famous wife Isabella Colbran, to the amorous in the case of Puccini&#8217;s multiple affairs. In each of these examples, it was the women in their lives that inspired much of their best music.</p> <p>Occasionally it was one singer that caught the attention of numerous composers, like Giuditta Pasta, who had multiple roles written specifically for her ranging from Bellini’s <em>Norma</em> and <em>Sonnambula</em> to Donizetti’s <em>Anna Bolena</em>.</p> <p>These are just a few of the relationships we will be exploring throughout the morning’s lecture. Come and discover more about the lives of some fascinating couples and the operas that tie them all together.</p> ]]>

<p><em>“How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?”</em></p> <p>This well-known verse from Psalm 137, a hymn of captivity and longing for homeland and religious freedom, gives this programme its title and its theme. <em>In a Strange Land</em> explores man’s search for heaven and earth in the Old and the New World in the turbulence of the 16th and 17th centuries. There is music of religious conflict and of discovery from England, France, Holland, Spain – and from Mexico and Bolivia, the world of the Aztecs and Incas.</p> <p>The programme includes William Byrd’s exquisite <em>Mass for Four Voices</em> alongside gems by Gesualdo, Lobo, Tallis and Victoria, the lilting syncopation of Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla’s <em>Missa Ego flos campi</em>, and rhythmically-arresting music from the Latin American Baroque, full of evocative, indigenous imagery.</p> <p>Part of Choral at Cadogan 2016-17.</p> ]]>

<p>AM Management &amp; Rima Events in association with The Peace and Prosperity Trust are proud to present Omar Kamal performing for one night only at Cadogan Hall.</p> <p>Omar Kamal is a Palestinian singer/composer from the city of Nablus. His multi-cultural influences have given him a rich taste in music ranging from Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson to Arabic greats such as Mohammed Abdel Wahab, Fairouz, and even modern trendsetters like The Weeknd.</p> <p>Omar sings a variety of genres in a number of languages, plays his own instrument, and composes his own music. All these components make Omar one of the most authentic and open artists to emerge from the region in years. He is always looking to add new sounds and elements to his music and experiment with his sound. Work on Omar’s debut album began in early 2015 with Grammy-winning producer Dave Pierce (Michael Bublé, The Frank Sinatra Estate) and legendary producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Jon Bon Jovi, Aerosmith) with a number of exciting international collaborations (Pedro Eustache, Human Nature) and some of the greatest session players who have worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, and Sammy Davies Jr. Recording of the album took place in London, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Vancouver, but most importantly the prestigious Capitol Studios in Hollywood. The album was finally co-mixed by Bob Rock and multi-Grammy winner Al Schmitt (Frank Sinatra, Quincy Jones, Barbra Streisand) and was released end of 2016.</p> <p>Expect big things from Omar Kamal.</p> <h3>The Peace and Prosperity Trust</h3> <p>Through the universal language of music and performing arts, and by promoting young artists from the Middle East and the Western World, the Peace and Prosperity Trust raises awareness and funds for charitable projects in the Middle East and for its young artists.</p> <p>The Peace and Prosperity Trust is a UK registered charity, whose Royal Patron is <span class="caps">HRH</span> The Duke of Gloucester.

<p>This all-Spanish programme focuses on three of the greatest names from the renaissance period. The main work is a substantial 6-voice mass setting by Morales, based on a chanson by Josquin. Music of this beauty and complexity from the early Spanish Renaissance is not so often performed, and may come as an eye-opener to those more familiar with High Renaissance practice.</p> <p>The second half similarly contains some resplendent 6-voice music – again rare in some cases, and again fascinating. Alonso Lobo’s epic <em>Lamentations</em> are a case in point. The concert ends with Victoria’s irrepressible double-choir <em>Magnificat</em>.</p> <p>Part of Choral at Cadogan 2016-17.</p> ]]>

<p>The incomplete state of Schubert’s Eighth Symphony has captured the romantic imagination like no other piece of music. With its universally loved themes, it has been the subject of many attempts to complete it; none of them completely successful.</p> <p>In complete contrast follows Beethoven’s glorious Piano Concerto No. 4, which abolished formal traditions with a simple statement for solo piano.</p> <p>Closing the concert is Brahms’ Fourth and final Symphony. Its finale, a radiant passacaglia, uses every instrument of the orchestra to drive towards the roaring and joyful conclusion.</p> ]]>

Thursday 25 May, 7.30pm

Artists: pg. Ballaké Sissoko ## kora ,pg. Vincent Segal ## cello

Ticket Information: £25, £10


<p>Ballaké Sissoko is one of Mali’s greatest exponents of the kora, joining forces in an unlikely pairing with Vincent Segal, a French cellist best-known for his work in trip-hop and resulting in an elegant and soulful music.</p> <p>Now, these two sonic voyagers have returned with <em>Musique de Nuit</em> &#8211; an album even more spellbinding than its predecessor.</p> <p>Perhaps the most magical thing about the new album is that after years of touring, and performing together on hundreds of stages around the world, the album has the feeling of eavesdropping on a late-night jam session – it was recorded in two sessions in the Malian capital of Bamako – one at night on Ballaké’s rooftop, and the other during the day in the famed Bogolan studio.</p> <p><em>‘It&#8217;s the work of two musicians from very different backgrounds who seem to understand each other almost intuitively.’</em> (**** The Guardian)</p> <p><strong>Support: Koki Nakano</strong><br /> Opening for Ballaké and Vincent is young Japanese pianist/composer Koki Nakano who releases his first album <em>Lift</em> with French cellist Vincent Segal on the No Format label on 3 March 2017. Piano and cello combine in a selection of beautiful pieces, where Nakano draws on his classical background whilst weaving in other influences, using repetitive and rhythmic elements of jazz and creating layers of sound inspired by pop and electronic music.</p> ]]>

Sibelius’s Violin Concerto is imbued with the craggy landscapes of his beloved Finland, while Elgar quotes a Welsh song he’d heard on holiday within his <em>Introduction and Allegro</em>, in which a string quartet is pitted against a string orchestra.</p> <p><em>The Bard</em> is the briefest and perhaps most elusive of Sibelius’s tone-poems, relying on the prominent use of a harp to suggest ancient story-telling. Elgar’s <em>Enigma Variations</em> is rather more specific, nothing less than a series of character sketches depicting the composer’s friends.</p> <p><small>Concert supported by The David and Claudia Harding Foundation.</small></p> ]]>

<p>Prokofiev&#8217;s excitingly unpredictable piece combines spiky, energetic passages with lyrical lines and makes original use of an unusual combination of instruments. One of the composer&#8217;s most radical scores, this Quintet was initially written as music for the ballet <em>Trapeze</em>, which required a small number of forces and a circus setting.</p> <p>This work will appropriately be followed by Berio’s <em>Sequenza V</em>, which is written for solo trombone and involves the performer dressing up as a clown. According to the composer, the piece can be considered ‘an essay in the superimposition of musical gestures and actions’. It involves some intriguing and virtuosic techniques and will be performed by the RPO’s Principal Trombone, Matthew Gee.</p> <p><strong><span class="caps">RPO</span> Preludes</strong><br /> <span class="caps">RPO</span> Preludes is a series of chamber concerts curated and performed by leading musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

<p>With <em>Nabucco</em>, first performed in 1842, Verdi’s great artistic career began. The story is loosely based on the Old Testament, though all the characters except Nabucco himself (Nebuchadnezzar) were inventions of his librettist. The famous chorus of the Hebrews in exile, <em>Va, pensiero, sull’ali dorate</em> (Go, thought, on golden wings) is one of Verdi’s finest pieces of choral writing. It also encapsulated the feelings of the Italian people at the time about their long history of oppression and foreign rule.

<![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> ]]>
