Bach Players concert cancelled on Sunday 29 March 2020

Gotto presents

I am writing to let you know that the Bach Players’ concert at The Octagon Chapel on Sunday 29 March has been cancelled, because of the present Corona virus crisis. Those of you who have bought tickets online are being automatically refunded by TicketSource. If you have any questions, do get in touch by replying to this email.

We plan to hold this concert in March 2021, and we very much hope to see you later this year for our two further concerts at The Octagon Chapel.

Meanwhile, we can take solace in recorded music. From our own CDs, we have uploaded for public listening our recording of J.S. Bach’s Cantata ‘Widerstehe doch der Sünde’ (BWV 54), which we recorded in 2011 for our album Pachelbel and Bach. The singer is Sally Bruce-Payne. (This is the cantata for today: the 3rd Sunday in Lent – Oculi.)

With all good wishes,
Nicolette Moonen

Chamber concert cancelled 22 March 2020 – message from the Chair

Norwich Chamber Music

The Health and Safety of our Members and audiences is our first consideration; therefore the concert by the Albion Quartet on Sunday 22nd March 2020 at 3:00PM has been cancelled. This is due to the UK government advice issued on 16 March 2020 in relation to the coronavirus outbreak.

If you have booked online, or by telephone with TicketSource, we will initiate a refund for the value of the tickets and booking fee. You will receive a notification of the refund process in a separate email.
We are grateful to the Albion Quartet for having offered to come to Norwich in place of the Brentano Quartet, and disappointed that we cannot now accept this offer.

Any decisions on the concert by Trio Wanderer on April 18th, and by Richard Goode on May 16th will be taken in light of circumstances nearer the time.

We are sorry to disappoint our audience but trust that you will understand our decision on this occasion..

With best wishes

Peter Lawson
Chairman
Norwich Chamber Music

Cancellations due to Covid-19

As you will no doubt already know, many public events are being cancelled, unavoidably, due the dangers of the corona-virus Covid-19.

Our thoughts are with those that are already affected and those that will be in the future, and we will try to keep you updated as and when our Music in Norwich members let us know – but do make sure you check with venues before you attend any advertised concerts in case they are cancelled too

Cancelled – due to Covid-19 Fauré Requiem and Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony at St Andrew’s Hall, Norwich Thursday 19 March

UEA Choir and Symphony Orchestra warmly invite you to join them for their spring concert ‘Fauré Requiem and Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony’ on Thursday 19 March at 7.30pm at St Andrew’s Hall, Norwich.

Massing more than 200 performers on stage, comprising students, staff and members of the local community, the choir and orchestra will perform Lili Boulanger’s noble graveside oration, Pour les Funerailles d’un Soldat, Gabriel Fauré’s gentle and profound Requiem and Camille Saint-Saëns’ glorious Symphony No.3 in C minor, Op.78.

Fauré is the presiding genius of this programme. The gentle, profound Requiem carries the title ‘Choral Favourite’ with grace and dignity. Its touchstone capacity to reflect a deeply human longing is seemingly inexhaustible. The meteoric Lili Boulanger was both a student and a musical confidante of Fauré. Her noble graveside oration comes from the same year as she became the first ever female winner of the Prix de Rome. Saint-Saëns’ Third Symphony comes from the years of his greatest fame. Glorious music conceals forward thinking, formal innovation and a search for musical unity.
The choir and orchestra will be joined in their performance of Fauré’s Requiem by Jenny Stafford (soprano) and Jake Muffett (baritone)

Tickets cost £4 – £12. Tickets are available to purchase: by phone or in person from St George’s Music Shop (Tel: 01603 626414, Address: St George’s Music Shop, 17-19 St Georges St, Norwich, Norfolk, NR3 1AB), online from www.uea.ac.uk/music-centre/events/tickets, or on the door (cash or cheque only).

The concert begins with Fauré’s rich and evocative Pelléas & Mélisande Suite, which includes the famous Sicilienne for flute and harp. Saint-Saëns’ lyrical Violin Concerto No.3 will be performed by Simos Papanas.

Rounding off the evening is Dvorák’s rarely heard and charming Symphony No 4 in D minor.  Full of Czech lyricism and rhythms, it has a beautiful slow movement influenced by Wagner.
