In the stream of life

Storming the Heavens
The third of a 13 concert series performed by the LPO and streamed live on Marquee TV

John Storgårds (conductor)
Simone Lamsma (violin)

NIELSEN Violin Concerto
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 7 In 1811, Beethoven conceived a symphony without precedent. ‘He’s ripe for the madhouse’ declared one contemporary, but 250 years on from the composer’s death, the Seventh Symphony burns with undimmed popularity and power. John Storgårds has followed the Symphony’s influence down two centuries, and paired it with two works of maverick genius. Simone Lamsma plays Nielsen’s Violin Concerto of 1911 – a bracing counterblast to romantic clichés, composed under clear northern skies. And Julian Anderson plunges into the luminous, swirling imagination of Vincent van Gogh, creating sounds that transcend social distance, glowing with fantasy and colour. *Supported by Resonate.

Brecon Baroque Festival

Friday 23 – Sunday 25 October, Brecon Baroque Festival

Brecon Baroque

Festival director and baroque violinist Rachel Podger performs the première of Chad Kelly’s arrangement of JS Bach’s Goldberg Variations for Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque.

The Goldberg Variations were filmed in the sun-drenched south transept of Brecon Cathedral. The transept dates from the 13th Century and its magnificent stone walls are adorned with 18th Century memorials, a fitting backdrop for Chad Kelly’s reimagining of JS Bach’s 1741 Goldberg Variations. The 32-movement work and the setting of Brecon Cathedral sit well together, with the wild and beguiling energy of the musicians and the mountains around them.


Stravinsky: A Soldier’s Tale – ONLINE EVENT

Categories: Concerts, Family, Live stream, Music Theatre
Tags: london mozart players, scala radio, soldier's tale

Sunday 8 November, 3.00pm at Royal Hospital Road, Chelsea, London, SW3 4SR

Classical ClubA theatrical work conceived by Igor Stravinsky and Swiss writer C.F. Ramuz, A Soldier’s Tale is a parable of a soldier who trades his violin to the devil in return for a fortune, later deliberately losing at cards to win it back. But the Devil is not so easily beaten…

Actor Tama Matheson narrates this Faustian story, while rhythms of ragtime, tango, waltz and a march jostle for position in the highly original and positively primal score, performed by an LMP septet of violin, double bass, clarinet, bassoon, cornet/trumpet(?), trombone and percussion. Written at the end of the First World War, The Soldier’s Tale is a lesson for all cultures and times. This Classical Club performance will be broadcast first on Remembrance Sunday from the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and the concert will end with The Last Post. Enjoy the whole 8-concert series online via LMP’s Classical Club, tickets just £12 each or £50 for the full 8-concert series if you book before 31 October (£60 thereafter).

Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904) – Piano Quartet No. 2 in E flat major Op. 87
Franz Schubert (1797-1828) – The Trout D667
By the time Dvořák composed his Piano Quartet in E flat he was an international celebrity, feted by the German and English musical establishments. It was composed during July and August 1889, and the inspiration seems to have flowed easily; Dvořák wrote ‘The melodies just surged upon me’. Our Chamber Ensemble in Residence also performs one of the absolute classics of the chamber music repertory, Schubert’s ‘Trout’ Quintet.

Saturday 13 February at 7.00pm – live stream


As part of the London Spring Festival

The Passing of the Year

The programme sees VOCES8, hosts of ‘Live from London’ presenting music rooted in nature – from extravagant Elizabethan idylls, styled for their queen ‘Oriana’, to Alec Roth’s rapt, soaring ‘Stargazer’ and Kate Rusby’s ‘Underneath the Stars’. The programme title comes from Jonathan Dove’s superb song cycle which evokes the beauty and mystic power of the changing seasons and describes the triumph of nature’s perpetual cycle. The composer himself will accompany VOCES8 on the piano. Also included are folksong arrangements describing the beauty of the world around us.

Juliana Koch

Bacewicz Music for strings, trumpet & percussion
Strauss Oboe Concerto
Schreker Chamber Symphony

Duncan Ward conductor
Juliana Koch oboe
London Symphony Orchestra

Three tales from the 20th century: power, passion and pure beauty, in music by Bacewicz, Schreker, and Richard Strauss.

What a difference half a century makes. Schreker wrote his sensuous, shimmering Chamber Symphony in the Vienna of Klimt and Freud. Grażyna Bacewicz, in post-war Poland, was working in a very different world, and writing music of uncompromising personality and power. Richard Strauss, meanwhile, remembered a happier age in what might be the greatest of all oboe concertos.

BSO Easter PassionBournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Kirill Karabits (conductor)
Prelude for Peace
The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross (orchestral version)

Penderecki described his four-minute, brass Prelude as a distillation of his childhood memories from the period of German occupation and communist regime that came to dominate Poland after the war, leading to a sense of final liberation. Haydn “translated” the seven last short sentences uttered by Christ from the Cross (according to the gospels of Matthew, Luke and John) into a sequence of seven slow, prayerful, meditative sonatas, framed by an intense introduction and a short, explosive coda. It was commissioned in 1783 for the Good Friday service at the Oratorio de la Santa Cueva, Cádiz.

Ora SingersORA Singers & Zeb Soanes
All Shall be Well

At the turn of the 15th century the first ever female author in the English language, Julian of Norwich, wrote “All shall be well, all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.” Writing during a time of plague, and following her own near-death experience from disease, Julian’s phrase echoes through the centuries as we also face one of the most devastating medical emergencies of our time.

The award-winning ORA Singers and BBC Radio 4 presenter Zeb Soanes present a selection of stunning choral music and readings from Julian’s time to ours, celebrating the power of the human spirit, and human art, in the face of life’s adversities. The ORA Singers are joined during the programme by VOCES8, in celebration of Julian’s hope and belief that ‘all shall be well’.

Vaughan-Williams The Lark Ascending
Messiaen Quartet for the End of Time

Four of the UK’s most renowned solo and chamber musicians unite to take you on an inspirational journey through Messiaen’s well known masterwork, Quartet for the End of Time. Whilst Messiaen musics hope from despair inspired by text from the book of Revelation, so Vaughan Williams turns to poet George Meredith and our most beloved The Lark Ascending for his inspiration.

Matthew Lynch, conductor

The Chineke! Orchestra will perform as part of LIVE from London. Founded in 2015 by double bassist Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE, the Chineke Foundation has gained widespread acclaim through the Chineke! Orchestra (and it’s sister Chineke! Junior Orchestra), Europe’s first majority Black and ethnically diverse orchestra. The organisation aims to be a catalyst for change, realising existing diversity targets within the industry by increasing the representation of Black and ethnically diverse musicians in British and European orchestras.

The programme includes music by Mendelssohn, British composer Philip Herbert and Nigerian Fela Sowande. Chineke! will be joined by VOCES8 in a new arrangement of Deep River for voices and orchestra by Matthew Lynch and in new orchestrations of choral music by Ken Burton previously heard in LIVE From London festivals.

Friday 22 April, 7.30pm at Sage Gateshead

Everyone’s got their own favourite bit of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons: the birdsong of Spring, the downpours of Summer, the celebrations of Autumn or the icy shiver of Winter. Three centuries after they were composed, they’re as fresh and tuneful as ever – and there’s still nothing to beat the sensation of hearing these four brilliant concertos performed live in concert. Rachel Podger is an expert on baroque music, as well as a dazzling violinist. She takes the spotlight today, and shares three more baroque gems by Telemann and Corelli: expect wit, drama and pure sonic splendour.
