Two into One : Keswick Hall Choir Saturday 27 April

St Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich, Saturday 27 April 2019, 7.30 pm
a joint concert with The Maidstone Singers (director Kathryn Ridgeway)

Our first collaboration with another choir will see us doing ‘home and away fixtures’. The concert will feature a variety of English music from the 15th-21st centuries, including a world première. The oldest piece, by Robert Wylkynson, in 13 vocal parts, is a setting of the Creed from the Eton Choirbook, a collection of music assembled around 1490. The newest will be a piece by Michael Lewis, in praise of St Cecilia, which will be sung by The Maidstone Singers. The main works in the programme are Britten’s setting of texts by W.H. Auden, Hymn to St Cecilia and Bob Chilcott’s The Making of the Drum, which will involve the choirs using various hand-held percussion instruments. There will also be pieces by Byrd, Gibbons, Pearsall and Purcell.

Tickets £12, £5 (students), £2 (under 14)
All tickets from St George’s Music Shop or www.ticketsource.co.uk/keswickhallchoir

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

 

9jamesehnes_148_c_ben_ealovega

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
