Norfolk & Norwich Chamber Music at John Innes Centre 21 November

Saturday 21 November 2019, 7.30pm

Andrè Schuen : Baritone
Daniel Heide : Piano

Mahler Wenn mein Schatz Hochzeit macht;
Ging heut morgen übers Feld; Ich hab’ ein glühend Messer; Die zwei blauen Augen

Schubert An den Mond (D.259); Im Frühling; Der Schiffer (D.536); Abendstern;
Des Fischers Liebesglück; Der Musensohn;
Sei mir gegrüßt; Du bist die Ruh;
Dass sie hier gewesen

Mahler Liebst du um Schönheit; Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder!; Ich atmet‘ einen linden Duft; Um Mitternacht; Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen

Andrè Schuen, one of today’s outstanding young baritones, took leading roles in all three of the Mozart/ Da Ponte operas under Nikolaus Harnoncourt, and gave highly successful performances of Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin and Schwanengesang at the prestigious Schubertiade in Schwartzenberg. In this programme, Schubert and Mahler meet their common ground in settings of the poet Friedrich Rückert.

Pre-concert talk by Richard Wigmore 6.15pm.

Norfolk & Norwich Chamber Music at John Innes Centre Sunday 7 April 3pm

Norfolk & Norwich Chamber Music Club presents…

Sunday 7 April 2019, 3pm

James Ehnes, violin
Andrew Armstrong,
piano

Beethoven

Violin Sonata in D, Op.12 No.1
Violin Sonata in A, Op.12 No.2
Violin Sonata in A minor, Op.23
Violin Sonata in E flat, Op.12 No.3

(The cycle will be completed next season, 2019-2020)

James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong begin their journey through the Beethoven violin sonatas with the first four works of the series. The triptych, Op.12, shows the young composer’s style at its most wilfully subversive, from the energy of the opening work and the elegant wit of the middle sonata to the dazzling virtuosity of the last in the series. More mysterious and subdued is the highly compressed A minor Sonata Op.23.

Pre-concert talk by Misha Donat 1.45pm

Takács Quartet at John Innes Centre Saturday 10 November 2018

TQ_KeithSaunders_01.jpg

Saturday 10 November 2018, 7.30pm
Takács Quartet

Haydn Quartet in D, Op.20 No.4
Bartók Quartet No.1
Brahms Quartet in A minor Op.51 No.2

Bartók’s First Quartet was described by his compatriot Kodály as ‘a gradual return to life, more evocative with its modest four instruments than Berlioz with his huge orchestra’. Framing the Bartók is the wit and elegance of Haydn, and the eloquent passion of Brahms.

Pre-concert talk with Misha Donat and the artists 6.30pm
