Artists: pg. Pekka Kuusisto ## violin ,pg. Vladimir Ashkenazy ## conductor

Ticket Information: £40, £30, £20, £10


<p><em>“The Sibelius Violin Concerto is often played, but never quite like this! Kuusisto launched into the music with a straightforward intensity that had listeners leaning forward in their seats.”</em> (Seattle Times, March 2015)</p> <p>Sibelius and Elgar both derived inspiration from their immediate surroundings. 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> ]]>

<![CDATA[RPO Preludes]]> Cadogan Hall 0.00000000 0.00000000 Prokofiev’s Quintet, Op. 39 - excitingly unpredictable combining spiky, energetic passages with lyrical lines - and Berio’s Sequenza V for solo trombone, which involves some intriguing and virtuosic techniques.

Friday 16 June, 6.15pm

Programme: pg. Prokofiev ## Quintet in G minor, Op. 39 ,pg. Berio ## Sequenza V

Artists: * Performed by Members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Ticket Information: £10


<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. These concerts take place on the concert stage of Cadogan Hall from 6.15pm, before the main concert at 7.30pm. The series provides a unique opportunity to not only listen to some astounding chamber music, but also to hear some of our musicians in a more intimate and personal setting.</p> ]]>

<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. With three strong characters and a succession of brilliant choruses a new and exciting era of Italian opera began.</p> <p><em>Concert performance in Italian with English surtitles.</em></p> <p><strong>5.45pm: Pre-concert talk</strong><br /> by Simon Bainbridge (for ticket holders)</p> ]]>

<p>Dudley Moore, beloved comic actor, we all know about.<br /> ​<br /> Perhaps fewer know about Dudley Moore, pianist — the virtuoso brilliantly exploiting the stylistic possibilities gifted to him by Errol Garner and Oscar Peterson in late night sessions at Peter Cook’s Establishment Club in 1960s Soho, dazzling appearances on <span class="caps">BBC</span> TV’s <em>Not Only But Also</em> and the sparkling Decca trio recordings.<br /> ​<br /> And perhaps fewer still, Dudley Moore, composer — purveyor of quirky, imaginative jazz originals and the witty music for <em>Bedazzled</em> and <em>30 Is A Dangerous Age, Cynthia</em>, nuanced movie scores far superior to the movies themselves.<br /> ​<br /> In preparing a recording celebrating the music of Dudley, we were tempted to pay homage to his 1960s piano-trio style. After all, Chris, George and I had all been indelibly influenced by the very particular, tight-knit, hard-swinging playing of Dudley, bassist Pete McGurk and drummer Chris Karan. However, whilst exploring the tunes with Paul on trumpet, we began to discover the richness of his compositions and understand a more authentic, and perhaps more revealing way of entering into Dudley’s musical world. <br /> ​<br /> As part of that process we took time to read something about the man’s complex and highly conflicted life, one filled with shades of light and dark, joy and woe. Here is not the place to explore any details of this, but what is musically relevant was the way we found these same shades expressed in his compositions. Some of his pieces are, of course, quintessential expressions of the bright, optimistic, swinging ‘60s in which Dudley came to fame, but others are deeply poignant, personal expressions of a darker, more complex world, whilst elsewhere you’ll find a unique and bittersweet mix of the two.</p> <p>It is this emotional range and depth that has made playing Dudley&#8217;s music a rather intimate and heartfelt pleasure for all of us and, we sincerely hope, for you too.<br /> ​<br /> Notes: Rev. Andrew J. Brown</p> ]]>

<p>Formed in 2012, The Matt Ridley Quartet have established themselves as &#8216;one of Britain&#8217;s very finest contemporary quartets&#8217; (<em>Jazz Views</em>). The quartet&#8217;s music takes the listener on an absorbing journey, which effectively marries the exhilaration of jazz improvisation with intricately sculpted arrangements.</p> <p>While deeply rooted in the Jazz tradition, Ridley eschews the traditional head/solos/head approach to composition, preferring instead to create a unique sound-world from each initial glint of inspiration. At the heart of each composition is a strong, memorable melodic theme, the realisation of which draws on any number of influences to bring fullest expression. Classical, groove based styles and &#8216;world&#8217; music can all be distinguished, while the ferocious improvisational skills of each member make for an absorbing and entertaining listening experience.</p> <p>The 2013 debut trio release <em>Thymos</em> garnered extensive praise from critics and audiences alike; a substantial statement of compositional and improvisational chutzpah, the music draws on the many influences of Ridley&#8217;s extensive performing career and features numerous guests, notably saxophonist Jason Yarde who joined the trio for the launch tour of <em>Thymos</em>, a collaboration which generated a whole new batch of compositions and culminated in their second studio album entitled <em>Mettā</em>.</p> <p><em>&#8216;One of Britain&#8217;s very finest contemporary quartets&#8230; the Matt Ridley Quartet is highly creative and exciting, working in a genre somewhere between free form and advanced lyricism and containing four talented musicians who have developed an almost telepathic musical understanding.&#8217;</em> (Jazz Views)</p> <p><em>&#8220;A very organic and at times crystalline sounding quartet.&#8221;</em> ★★★★<br /> (The Scotsman)</p> <p><em>&#8220;A very good album by an excellent quartet.&#8221;</em> ★★★★<br /> (All About Jazz)</p> <p><em>&#8220;Ridley’s gently melodic but rhythmically sophisticated themes provide ideal vehicles for some superb group interplay and some inspired individual soloing.&#8221;</em> ★★★★<br /> (The Jazz Mann)</p> <p><em>&#8220;Gorgeously liquid soloing enlivens the absorbing &#8216;Mettā&#8217;&#8221;</em> ★★★★<br /> (Jazz Record Collector)</p> <p><em>&#8220;Ridley has made a stirring debut here and his future on the scene seems very bright after this fine start&#8221;</em> ★★★★ (Marlbank)</p> ]]>

Influenced by the great live trio recordings of Joe Henderson and Julian Arguelles, Satori were inspired to create a similar feeling of freedom and exploration whilst also bringing a fresh and unique sound through original compositions.</p> <p>Their debut album was released earlier this year on Whirlwind Recordings to rave reviews. Today’s line-up features the immensely talented Royal Academy graduates James Maddren on drums and Calum Gourlay on bass. </p> <p><em>“Consistently inventive”</em> (Jazzwise)</p> <p><em>“Spiritual, spiralling&#8230; slow-burning exuberance”</em> (UK Vibe)</p> <p><em>“A truly gifted and imaginative saxophonist, Davies undoubtedly possesses the art of the improviser and has produced an album of exuberant lyricism and consistently engaging tunes”</em> (All About Jazz)</p> ]]>

Ticket Information: £39.50, £15


<p>The joyous and uplifting musical voices of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, referred to by Nelson Mandela as ‘South Africa’s cultural ambassadors’ marry the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their Zulu traditions to the sounds and sentiments of gospel music. The result is a musical and spiritual alchemy that has touched a worldwide audience ever since Paul Simon first introduced them to the world with the <em>Graceland</em> album.</p> <p>The group sing in a joyously energetic performance that combines powerful choruses, softer, almost whispering chants where voices blend harmoniously, and tightly-choreographed dance moves.</p> <p><em>‘Gorgeous harmonies from the South African vocal ensemble, best known for their work with Paul Simon on Graceland. Though they sing entirely a cappella, their songs have a rhythmic spring, and their dance moves are light-footed and elegant’</em> (Daily Telegraph).</p> ]]>

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> ]]>

His collaboration with the brilliant Norwegian pianist Helge Lien is a heady mix of jazz, Polish and Norwegian folk music.</p> <p><span class="caps">ACT</span> have championed the cause of new European music for some 25 years – tonight’s concert takes their message into a new dimension.</p> ]]>

It has a largely bucolic, even rustic character, and includes a folksy, dancing third movement.

<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> ]]>

Apparently, at the work’s premiere, many members of the audience wept during its sublime third movement.</p> <p>Part of <a href="/tour-dates/zurich-international-orchestra-series-2017-18">Zurich International Orchestra Series 2017-18</a></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>The Würth Philharmonic, named after the German philanthropist Prof. Dr Reinhold Würth, brings together some of the world’s most talented young musicians to form a virtuosic symphony orchestra performing with today’s greatest conductors and soloists. For its Cadogan Hall debut the orchestra is conducted by Rumon Gamba.</p> <p>The evening’s programme of masterpieces begins with Vaughan Williams <em>Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis</em>, a visionary fusion of folksong and sacred music, followed by Rachmaninov’s much-loved Second Piano Concerto, performed by one of Britain’s leading pianists, John Lill.</p> <p>The concert ends with Elgar’s most beloved work, his <em>Enigma Variations</em> where he draws a series of affectionate portraits of his family and friends. The central <em>Nimrod</em> variation has almost become an instantly recognisable second national anthem.</p> <p>Part of <a href="/tour-dates/zurich-international-orchestra-series-2017-18">Zurich International Orchestra Series 2017-18</a></p> ]]>
