Two years later he was back with Snarky Puppy for the Grammy Award-winning <em>Culcha Vulcha</em>. In 2017, Reynolds delivered the EP <em>Guitar Band</em>, which featured appearances from Kneebody bassist Kaveh Rastegar, as well as fellow Snarky Puppy members Robert &#8220;Sput&#8221; Searight (drums) and Mark Lettieri (guitar).</p> <p><strong>Casey Benjamin</strong> aka Stutz McGhee<br /> Double Grammy Award-winning Casey Benjamin is the first original member of the Robert Glasper Experiment. Through his melodic ingenuity on the vocoder, textual mastery on the keytar and spiky virtuosity on the alto, soprano and tenor saxophone, he has worked with a string of other stellar musicians that, from jazz to hip-hop, include: Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, singer Betty Carter, bassist Derrick Hodge, vibraphonist Stefon Harris, trumpeter Roy Hargrove, drummer Terri Lyne Carrington and A Tribe Called Quest to name a few.</p> <p>Benjamin’s defining sounds has enabled him to gain international acclaim in the jazz, R&amp;B and hip-hop scenes on such trailblazing albums as <em>Black Radio</em> and <em>Black Radio 2</em> both released on Blue Note Records.</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> ]]>

Their repertoire draws on unique interpretations of songs from the jazz canon as well as their own exciting and harmonically rich compositions.</p> <p>The quartet’s debut album <em>Detour Ahead</em>, released on Ubuntu Music, portrays a narrative exploring the group’s musical journey. It begins with performances which draw from the American Songbook tradition and travels through to a more modern aesthetic inspired by the surroundings of London’s jazz scene. This compelling journey explores sounds from many perspectives simultaneously. Forms, harmonies and rhythms are superimposed and abstracted but still retain their essential function, whilst the improvisations express the excitement and beauty of these frameworks.</p> <p><em>“Guitarist, Nick Costley-White has a flair for melody and he crafted some beautiful lines”</em> (Jazzwise)</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. The very size and scope of it calls for forces which enable us to programme some other substantial masterpieces we cannot normally perform: Sheppard’s 6-voice <em>Missa Cantate</em>; and Robert White’s glorious <em>Magnificat</em>, replete with a triple gimell.</p> <p>But perhaps the <em>pièce de résistance</em> in this context is John Sutton’s 7-voice <em>Salve Regina</em> from the <em>Eton Choirbook</em>. It may have fewer parts than <em>Spem</em>, but it is just as much of a challenge to sing.</p> <p>Part of <a href="/tour-dates/choral-at-cadogan-2017-18">Choral at Cadogan 2017-18</a>.</p> ]]>

<p>Visionary founder Dave Flynn has enlisted 20 of Ireland’s leading traditional, classical and jazz musicians to perform his critically acclaimed music. Dave Flynn’s Irish Memory Orchestra (formerly the Clare Memory Orchestra) is the first and only orchestra in the Western World to play exclusively from memory, crossing traditional boundaries between orchestras and audiences.</p> <p>Achievements include sold-out performances at Moscow Catholic Cathedral and South Korea’s Sori International Festival; an Allianz Business to Arts Award for the <span class="caps">ESB</span> ‘Concert in a Cavern’; and a collaboration with Martin Hayes and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra at Ireland’s National Concert Hall.</p> <p>This thrilling, uniquely Irish phenomenon has brought audiences to their feet at every concert they have played. This evening will be the debut performance in Britain of the Orchestra and will feature music from Dave Flynn’s <em>Clare Concerto</em>.</p> <p><em>The Irish Times</em> said of them: ‘Audiences seeing the Clare Memory Orchestra for the first time may be astounded at the informality and communication between the musicians. Feet tapping, vibrato is nowhere to be heard and the absence of sheet music means musicians connect with one another on the fly. Then there’s the appearance of Irish instruments such as the pipes, concertina, whistle and bodhrán, alongside the oboe and silver flute.’</p> <p>This ‘Irish Night at Cadogan Hall’ is presented by <span class="caps">IMDL</span> (Irish Music and Dance in London) who have been promoting traditional Irish Arts in London for two decades. This evening’s concert will open with a short collaborative performance featuring a large number of the finest traditional Irish musicians and singers on the London Irish music scene. The night also serves as a fundraiser towards <span class="caps">IMDL</span> staging their internationally renowned seven-day festival – Return to Camden Town – now in its 20th year and due to take place from 23–29 October 2018.</p> <p><em>The Orchestra is very grateful to Culture Ireland GB18 and the Emigrant Support Programme for their funding towards hosting this evening&#8217;s concert.</em></p> ]]>

Wednesday 13 June, 6pm

Ticket Information: £32.50, £27.50, £23.50


<p>Peters’ new album <em>Dancing with the Beast</em> puts female characters at the fore, from teenage girls to old women. And intentionally so. With the 2017 Women&#8217;s March and #MeToo Movement as bookends to her writing time, Peters knew that a feminist perspective would be the critical core of the record. She admits, “You can trace the feminist <span class="caps">DNA</span> in my songwriting back to &#8216;Independence Day&#8217; and probably before. The thing that 2017 did is just put it front and centre.”</p> <p>Scenery, too, played a part in inspiring several cuts on the LP, most notably <em>Wichita</em> and <em>Truckstop Angel</em>, both sketches of women doing whatever they have to do to stand up in a world built to hold them down.</p> <p>Beauty tempered by dread, sorrow buoyed by hope, these are the ever-present tugs of war that make life worth living and songs worth writing. And they are the over-riding themes that make Gretchen Peters one of her generation&#8217;s most compelling singer/songwriters.</p> <p>7.30pm-8.05pm: Support<br /> Interval<br /> 8.25pm-9.55pm: Gretchen Peters</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>The title role will be sung by Natasha Jouhl who sang Oksana in Chelsea Opera Group&#8217;s performance of Rimsky-Korsakov&#8217;s <em>Christmas Eve</em> last year.</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> ]]>

<p>Citing Lee Konitz, Charlie Parker, Warne Marsh, Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, Ornette Coleman, Steve Coleman, Rabi Abou Khalil, and Paul Motian as major influences, Martin has developed a personal musical voice that expresses a deep understanding of the history and language of Jazz with ​individuality as an improviser that is intelligent, melodic, cool, complex, direct, beautiful and ​profound.</p> <p>He first came to public attention as a founder member of the award-winning Saxophone Quartet ‘Itchy Fingers’ during the height of the UK’s so called ‘80’s Jazz Revival’ when a host of young musicians including Courtney Pine, Andy Sheppard, Django Bates, Iain Ballamy and the big bands of the Jazz Warriors and Loose Tubes were acclaimed as the leaders of an emerging generation of UK jazz talent.<br /> <br /> 2004 saw the release of three different CDs including The Exploring Standards Trio (33 Records) with bassist Mick Hutton and drummer Tom Skinner, a ballad album My Ideal (Basho Records) with American pianist Ethan Iverson (The Bad Plus), and The Journey (Black Box) with Indian musicians Dharambir Singh and Sarvar Sabri. Autumn 2004 he toured with Sam Rivers in his UK big band on a Contemporary Music Network tour. In 2005 he celebrated the music of Charlie Parker with a newly formed group and touring throughout the country promoting a cd release of the project.<br /> <br /> With Itchy Fingers, Martin toured Europe, South America, Africa, Britain and the <span class="caps">USA</span>, and recorded two albums. In 1988, he left the group to develop his own projects, and establish himself as a composer and improvisor.</p> <p>His studies at Canada’s renowned Banff Centre for the Arts in 1990, under the artistic direction of Steve Coleman, and alongside peers that included keyboard players Andy Milne and Ethan Iverson, and trumpeter Ralph Alessi, proved to be pivotal and catalytic in Martin’s subsequent development as a creative musician.</p> <p>Martin is as comfortable and fluent playing personal interpretations of the music of Charlie Parker with his quartet, or with free improvising drummer Mark Sanders, in a duet with Ethan Iverson of the Bad Plus, or with Indian musicians Dharambir Singh and Sarvar Sabri.<br /> <br /> In 1999 he received the Peter Whittingham Award to help fund a tour of the UK with The Martin Speake Group. In 2000 he was commissioned to compose music for an international project featuring American drummer Paul Motian, Swedish pianist Bobo Stenson and English bassist Mick Hutton. This group toured in May of that year with funding from the Arts Council of England and toured again in Autumn 2001. Their first cd Change of Heart was released on <span class="caps">ECM</span> in April 2006. <br /> ​<br /> He started his own record label Pumpkin in 2007. The first release was a duo with free improvising drummer Mark Sanders and in 2008 Generations with Barry Green, Jeff Williams and Dave Green.</p> <p>​Current projects being developed include a saxophone quartet with Phil Bancroft, Martin Hathaway and Tony Kofi and a trio with Canadian musicians Duncan Hopkins and Anthony Michelli.</p> <p>​Martin is a committed, inspiring, and sought after jazz educator and currently teaches at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and the Royal Academy of Music in London, and on numerous international Jazz summer courses.</p> ]]>

Promoter: The Jazz Repertory Company

Programme: pg. Holst ## The Planets (arr. Pete Long) ,pg. Tchaikovsky ## The Nutcracker Suite (arr. Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn) ,pg. Grieg ## Peer Gynt Suites 1 and 2 (arr. Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn) ,

Ticket Information: £36 £28, £23, £18.


<p>September 2018 is the centenary of the first ever performance of one of the most-loved works in the classical repertoire, Gustav Holst’s <em>The Planets</em>. Its novel sonorities helped make the work an immediate success with audiences at home and abroad and now have inspired Pete Long to re-score the work as if Duke Ellington had adapted the piece in his own distinctive way. As Long explained:</p> <p><em>“Whilst driving, &#8216;Venus&#8217; from the Planets Suite came on the radio. It suddenly struck me how Ellingtonian the curves of the melody were, and how Holst&#8217;s warped, flowing harmonic symmetry was so redolent of that of Ellington&#8217;s composing partner, Billy Strayhorn. It was a long car journey, and by the time I&#8217;d reached my destination, the broad idea of re-orchestrating the whole suite for an Ellington-style orchestra had coalesced.”</em></p> <p>Besides his tenure as leader of the Ronnie Scott Orchestra, featured sax star of the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra and Musical Director of The Jazz Repertory Company, Long has also run the Echoes of Ellington Orchestra since 1993 and his admiration for the work of Duke and Billy Strayhorn has given him a deep knowledge and understanding of what makes this music sound as it does. He is also able to source the right musicians to recreate the uniqueness of the great orchestra’s sidemen such as saxophonists Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves and Harry Carney, as well as the distinctive drumming of Sam Woodyard and trombone work of Laurence Brown. Listening to the Echoes of Ellington perform is the closest you’ll ever come to the experience of hearing the original Ellington sound live in all its glory and pomp.</p> <p>The other works included in our concert are Duke’s re-workings from 1960 of Grieg’s <em>Peer Gynt Suite</em> (from the album <em>Swinging Suites</em> by Edward E. &amp; Edward G) and Tchaikovsky’s <em>Nutcracker Suite</em> (which the Echoes of Ellington Orchestra performed with Northern Ballet on their coast to coast <span class="caps">USA</span> tour).</p> <p>We hope you’ll be able to join us for this very special triple celebration – 10 years of The Jazz Repertory Company at Cadogan Hall, 25 years since the formation of the Echoes of Ellington Orchestra and 100 years since the premiere of <em>The Planets</em>.</p> ]]>

<p>After its successful season of Madama Butterfly and Tosca last year, Russian State Opera returns to delight you with the powerful and dramatic production of <em>Carmen</em>. Feel the thrill of fiery passion, jealousy and violence of 19th-century Seville in Bizet’s most popular opera. </p> <p>Carmen tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who falls head over heels in love with Carmen, a seductive, free-spirited femme fatale. The infatuated Don José abandons his childhood sweetheart and neglects his military duties, only to lose the fickle Carmen to the glamorous toreador Escamillo.</p> <p>The music of Carmen has been widely acclaimed for the brilliance of its melodies, enthralling atmosphere and orchestration, as well as for the skill with which Bizet musically represented the emotions and suffering of his characters.</p> <p>The <em>Toreador Song</em> is among the best known of all operatic arias. The rich and colourful vigour of the gypsies’ scenes will have you on the edge of your seat, the vibrancy, enthusiasm and intensity of the performances will reverberate long after the final curtain has fallen.</p> <p>Love, treachery, passion and betrayal, Carmen has it all.</p> <p><em>Sung in French with English surtitles.</em></p> <p><em>“Always top-quality productions from this producer”</em><br /> (Stage Talk Magazine)</p> <p><strong>NB. Please note start time.</strong></p> ]]>

<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>, vibraphonist <strong>Anthony Kerr</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> ]]>

Cooder is also a soulful preservationist, keeping vital pasts alive and dynamic in the modern world.

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>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>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.

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> ]]>

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>Genius, revolutionary, rebel – there are so many words used to describe Beethoven, none more so which describes his ground-breaking Symphony No. 3. Composed at the turn of the 19th-century, the &#8216;Eroica&#8217; Symphony is one of the most profoundly compelling masterpieces in music. Antony Hermus conducts an electrifying evening which pits the music of an angry young genius against the full-throttled drama and sweeping intensity of Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto, performed by the incomparable Boris Giltburg. Mozart’s Overture to <em>La clemenza di Tito</em> opens a programme designed to keep you on the edge of your seat.</p> ]]>
