Ialoni Ensemble

PRESENTED BY WELLS MALTINGS

at The Maltings, Heritage Room Four, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk NR23 1AN

A unique evening from Georgia’s top women’s vocal ensembles

A one-off opportunity to hear this unique and mesmerising ensemble of women’s voices from Georgia, in a special performance just for Wells Maltings.

Ialoni was formed in 2009 in Tbilisi, Georgia. Their repertoire includes all three streams of Georgian Traditional Vocal Polyphony: ecclesiastical, folk and city music, with works deep in the folklore traditions of Georgia, with an emphasis on reviving and reinterpreting both unusual and original forms.

In 2016, Ialoni won the 1st prize in the category of Women’s Folk Ensemble of Georgia, at the country’s National Folklore Festival.

We promise a very special, sublime and magical evening.

Raynham Hall near Fakenham, Norfolk has been the seat of the Townshend family for over 400 years. Raynham Recitals is a programme of chamber music held in what used to be the great hall of this Jacobean house designed and built by Sir Roger Townshend with his Master Mason William Edge. Later paved in marble by William Kent and embellished in C18th style, the Marble Hall epitomises the dual spirit of Raynham Hall. Lofty, elegant and flooded with light, it also has a clear but gentle resonance which is perfect for the intimate chamber music presented at the Raynham Recitals.

Musical Advisor: Michael Chance CBE

Tickets £18 to £40 including a glass of champagne.

Sivan Rotem at The Assembly House Thursday 2 March 2017

aaml-sivan-rotem-norwich-recital-2017-e-flyer-img-20170213-wa0001

When the world’s busiest conductor, Maestro Valery Gergiev, heard that there is a soprano who works on five continents, as does he, he exclaimed with thus supreme authority that “she is the only one”. That classically-trained singer is Sivan Rotem, an Argentinian-born Israeli whose burgeoning career in opera, concerts, recitals, radio, television, cabaret, commercial recordings and master classes has taken her across the Americas via the West Indies and many continental European countries to Egypt, South Africa, China and Australia.

Described by the Salt Lake Tribune following her Brahms Requiem with the Utah Symphony as “a classy vocal talent” with “an angelic soprano voice”, Sivan Rotem is considered one of the most outstanding singers of Israel. Born in Buenos Aires, she started her musical training as a violinist. Graduating from Haifa University in English and Literature and the Rubin Academy of Music at Tel Aviv University in Singing, she continued her vocal studies in the USA with Ellen Faull.

She made her debut with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and appears regularly with all the leading orchestras of Israel. She also sang many leading roles with the Israeli Opera and in Germany, Finland and the USA.

Sivan Rotem enjoys a successful career worldwide and has sung with symphony orchestras across North and South America and in Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Georgia, Macedonia and South Africa. Recitals have taken her to the USA, UK, Albania, Czech Republic, Spain, Finland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, France, Argentina, Egypt, China and Australia.

Her flamenco quartet Classic Flamenco was invited to Madrid where it sold out at the Suma Flamenco Festival, subsequently appearing in England at the Henley Festival and in London to great acclaim.

Her discography includes Aharon Harlap’s Symphony No 2, “L’Oiseau de la Guerre” for Helicon, a Spanish CD, “Viva el Amor” for Romeo Records, and two CDs dedicated to songs by Giacomo Meyerbeer, the latest released in December, 2016.

The recital will also be given in London the previous evening, Wednesday 1 March.
