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).

Tags: nadine benjamin, snape

26 and 27 June, 5.00pm, at Snape Maltings

A multi-media music theatre piece based on the life story of opera singer Nadine Benjamin, using performance to highlight the many ways that trauma affects a life.

BEAM follows one woman’s journey from fragmentation to wholeness, exploring sexuality; race; gender; neurodiversity – dyspraxia, trauma-tourettes – domestic violence; bullying; addiction, and the role of music and creativity as healing forces in her life.

Team BEAM develops a new inclusive process of co-construction as a working practice and co-creation as an artistic practice.

Performance length: approx. 70 minutes, with no interval

London Sinfonietta – NEW MUSIC BIENNIAL 2022

Date:
Categories: Festivals, Free, Music Theatre, New Work

Sunday 3 Jul 2022, 7.30pm at Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

New Music Biennial celebrates its ten-year anniversary with previous works performed at the festival alongside brand-new commissions. New Music Biennial 2022 will comprise 20 new pieces of music: ten brand new works selected from an open call and ten pre-existing New Music Biennial works from across the last 10 years to mark its launch back in 2012.

The free festival will feature the London Sinfonietta in Philip Venables’ Illusions, a past commission with performance artist David Hoyle. This anarchic ‘party political broadcast’ takes an unforgiving view of modern society, first performed two days after the 2015 General Election and reworked for the New Music Biennial 2017. Tackling themes of power, greed, emotion and sexuality, Philip Venables’ brash musical style combines with David Hoyle’s vibrant, direct and uncompromising performance art to startling effect.

This 15-minute piece is performed twice, with a short Q&A session with the composer between the performances.
