Concert 1: CONTEMPORARY ART SONG
 
Matthew Clark (baritone)
Jolyon Laycock (Tenor)
James D’Angelo & Philip Blandford (piano)
Matthew Heyse-Moore (clarinet)

SCA’s 2018 festival kicks off with a recital of contemporary art song featuring baritone Matthew Clark. James D’Angelo is accompanist in his own settings of the meditational poetry of Thomas Merton. Philip Blandford is the accompanist in Sulyen Caradon’s settings of translations of Russian poetry portraying an environment poisoned by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Clark and Blandford are joined by tenor Jolyon Laycock in songs that capture the ecstatic response of the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins to the wild natural scenery of places such as Inversnaid Falls. On a lighter note songs by Peter Nickol (pictured) & Richard Pond are settings of James Turner, Veronica Gosling and W.H. Auden. Clarinettist Matthew Heyse-Moore is the accompanist in settings by Clement Jewitt of his own verses.

Psappha – Bosnian Voices

Date:
Categories: Concerts, New Work, Song

Thursday 2 May, 7.30pm at St Michael’s Manchester

Psappha Ensemble
Programme

Anthony Burgess Cello Sonata ‘for the dead 1939-45’
Arnold Schoenberg Ode to Napoleon Bonaparte
David T Little and the sky was still there
Tim Wright The Bridge
Nigel Osborne Bosnian Voices

Mark Heron conductor
Jessica Gillingwater mezzo soprano
Richard Suart speaker

“And I heard a voice that said to me: If you care about the state of your soul, if you care about anything at all, if you want to continue to be a good person: Get out.” David T Little’s and the sky was still there with a film by R. Luke DuBois challenges the US army’s controversial ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy towards gay and lesbian soldiers.

The war in Bosnia ended nearly a quarter of a century ago, with the tragedy of Srebrenica. Influenced by the chiming of church bells and the Muslim call to prayer, Nigel Osborne’s Bosnian Voices is a set of songs written by ordinary Bosnians – children and adults – about their lives then and now.

Tim Wright’s sparse and tense music for a 1929 silent film by Charles Vidor tells the dramatic story of a spy sentenced to be hanged from a bridge.

Two giants of the twentieth century react to the atrocities of the second world war. Schoenberg takes his inspiration from the poetry of Byron, and writer Anthony Burgess turns to music in his heart-felt for the dead 1939-45.
