Concerts at The Chapel, Park Lane, Norwich this weekend

Chapel concerts are coming thick and fast at present; I promise a quieter time next year – perhaps!

The EUSEBIUS QUARTET were outstanding success when they were in residence at Aldeburgh last year and they will visit the chapel for the first time on Saturday to play Haydn, Bartok and one of Beethoven’s greatest quartets, Op 132. The next evening the MORIARTY WIND QUINTET give a concert as a prelude to their schools visit on Monday under the auspicies  of Norfolk & Norwich Chamber Music. Those of you who came to their concert last year will remember that both the musicians themselves and their pogromming is original and entertaining. Roger

Americana 2: Exploring North American choral music

Aaron Copland In the beginning
Dan Forrest Good night, dear heart
Randall Thompson Alleluia
Ernst Toch Geographical fugue
David del Tredici Acrostic song
Eric Whitacre When David heard

Plus folksong and spiritual arrangements by James Erb, Robert Fountain and John Rutter

A programme exploring some jewels of 20th-century American choral music. Copland’s choral fantasia joyfully expounds the Genesis story of creation, while Whitacre’s deeply felt setting of a line from the Second Book of Samuel really plucks at the heartstrings. The programme will include both a speaking chorus (Toch) and a whispering chorus (del Tredici) as well as Randall Thompson’s classic setting of just one word.

Director: Chris Duarte

Venue: Church of St Peter Mancroft, Norwich
Time: 7.30 pm

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.

Please note that Andrew Tyson is replacing Anna Federova as per note below:

Unfortunately ANNA FEDEROVA who was to have given recital at the Assembly House on Thursday has had to withdraw due to a hand injury. We have however been very fortunate however to find a magnificent replacement. He is the young American piano virtuoso ANDREW TYSON who happens to be on tour in Europe and has agreed to divert to Norwich to replace Anna.  BBC Radio 3 reviewers of Andrew’s latest disc described him as a “a real poet of the piano”.  In 2015, he won the Géza Anda Competition in Zürich and is also a laureate of the Leeds International Piano Competition where he won the new Terence Judd-Hallé Orchestra Prize. Unfortunately the programmes have had to be changed as below.
I hope very much that you will feel able to support these concerts but if you have booked and wish not to attend the Assembly House concert as a result please contact Iain lowery on 07708 6940878.
These things to not happen too often and I thank you for your understanding, Roger
PS Don’t forget Cedric Tiberghien’s pre-Wigmore recital on Thursday 7th!

At The Assembly House in Norwich this Thursday 1pm

This Thursday lunchtime Assembly House Classical are really excited to present a concert by the renowned Fitzwilliam Quartet.

The Fitzwilliam Quartet became well known through their close association with Dmitri Shostakovich, who met them on a visit to York. He entrusted them with the Western premières of his last three quartets, and they were the first quartet to perform and record all fifteen. The quartet was founded in 1968 by four Cambridge undergraduates and is now one of the longest established quartets in the world.

The programme for the afternoon includes –
Bach – Art of Fugue No 1
Shostakovich – String Quartet No 11
Beethoven – String Quartet Op 131

Tickets are selling well in advance but there still some available to buy online and we will make some available to purchase on the door this Thursday from 12:15 pm when doors open. The concert itself will start at the usual time of 1:00 pm.
