Tonight at the John Innes Centre

Tolga Atalay Ün

Saturday 17th March 2018, 7:30pm, John Innes Conference Centre

  • Mozart: Variations on ‘Salve tu Domine’, K.398
  • Debussy: Images Book 1
  • Berg: Sonata, Op.1
  • Brahms: Three Intermezzi, Op.117
  • Brahms: Sonata in C, Op. 1

A unique opportunity to hear the prize-winning Turkish-American pianist Tolga Atalay Ün. In September 2016, he was selected as a scholar for the ‘Young Musicians on World Stages’ project established by the well-known piano duo of Güher and Süher Pekinel. Here, Ün plays Berg’s romantically inclined Sonata Op.1, written during his period of study with Schoenberg, and the Op.1 Sonata by Brahms – a youthful work on a grand scale. Nearly 40 years later, Brahms composed his Three Intermezzi Op.117, which he once described as “the cradle songs of my suffering”.

Everyone is welcome to the John Innes Conference Centre to Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Music in the ideal concert setting of the John Innes Conference Centre. Please see our website for tickets, or contact Theatre Royal in Norwich 01603 598595  We look forward to seeing you.

Through the NNCM Schools Music Project 2018, professional musicians over three days last hour long school based workshops and an absolutely stunning concert at the John Innes Centre for some 300 Primary School pupils.

Some of the teachers’ comments say it all:

‘Thanks again for the visit and the chance the children had to listen to great musicianship. ‘
‘We all loved the workshop and the children have all been talking about what instruments they want to learn!  Brilliant!  Please let the musicians know they have inspired the children.’

‘It’s an experience that many of our children would not otherwise ever have the chance to take part in. ‘

‘To watch the reactions of our children experiencing this was spine tingling, lump-in-the-throat.’

More details will be on the NNCM website shortly.

With best wishes

The UK’s top young choristers are coming to Norwich next month for two performances on Sunday 15 April.

Following a free ‘pop-up performance’ outside the Forum at 12pm, the National Youth Choir will give an evening concert of beautiful choral music at 7.30pm at The Halls.

The choir includes star Norwich singer Lucy Thalange, 19, who won Norfolk Young Musician of the Year in 2017.

Lucy said: “It’s the first time that the National Youth Choir has sung in Norwich for years, and I’m really excited because my friends hear me go on about it all the time but the concerts are usually far away.

The National Youth Choir’s last concert was at the BBC Proms last August, where it was described by the critics as “a young choir on blazing form”. The choir’s members hail from around the UK, and re-audition each year to keep their places.

Tickets for the evening concert start at £5 for under 25s and are available from NYCGB’s website or on the door.
The pop-up performance outside The Forum is free.

Friday 2 March 2018, 7.30pm  St Andrew’s Hall,​ ​
St Andrew’s Plain, Norwich

​Briiten Sinfonia concert ​

Rhapsody in Blue with Jeremy Denk

Programme to include:
Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue (original jazz band version)
Stravinsky Concerto for piano and winds

Jeremy Denk piano

From its opening clarinet glissando Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue has become synonymous with 1920s America and its popularity continues to this day. Performed here in the original jazz band arrangement with acclaimed pianist Jeremy Denk the work is paired with Stravinsky’s rhythmically complex Concerto for piano and wind. Both works explore rhythm from the syncopated cadenzas in Stravinsky to the abundant use of dance and ragtime rhythms in Gershwin.

Jeremy Denk talks about tonight’s programme in this pre-concert talk
(free to ticket holders).
Tickets: £8-£30 (£6 students, under 26 and job seekers)
