Music in Quiet Places - Joglaresa

Belinda Sykes director

7.30 pm

St Andrew’s Church, Sempringham NG34 0LU

Love in Time of Unicorns

Fittingly for this splendid church and its links to the Gilbertine priory, Joglaresa presents a medieval programme, mainly from England, including music from convents. Known for their lively and dynamic performance style, Joglaresa bring a variety of backgrounds to the music as well as scholarship.

Close to the church is the site of the mid-12th century monastic buildings of the Gilbertine order; St Andrew’s was built later that century in what was then a thriving village.  Much of the interior retains its Norman architecture, including massive pillars, but more was lost in the 18th century when the chancel and transepts were demolished.  The south doorway is resplendent with Norman chevron carvings and the ancient doors with decorative iron scrollwork.  Please note that access to the church is down a long country lane and please be careful to avoid the potholes.

Tickets £14 (£12) £8 Artscene and under 16s

Featuring beloved works such as Laurence Binyon’s poignant Ode of Remembrance (“As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness. To the end, to the end, they remain.”), paired with Debussy’s Clair de Lune; Rupert Brook’s patriotic sonnet, The Soldier, partnered with Elgar’s Chanson de Nuit; WB Yeats’s An Irish Airman Foresees His Death, combined with Copland’s Violin Sonata (composed in memory of a pilot lost in battle); and Edward Thomas’s Adlestrop (“Farther and farther, all the birds. Of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.”), accompanied by Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending, this promises to be a memorable evening of thought-provoking verse and inspiring music. Reciting the poems will be Richard Main of the Chapterhouse Theatre Company.

7.30 pm

St Mary the Virgin Church, Frampton

Debussy String Quartet in G minor
Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet in G major l
Rave String Quartet in F major

Debussy’s masterful quartet provided the model on which Ravel based his sole offering in the genre; in surpassing the achievements of his friend and occasional rival, Ravel thus created one of the quartet repertoire’s crowning glories. A major influence on Debussy, Rimsky-Korsakov composed few chamber works and this recital offers a rare opportunity to hear his seldom performed G major quartet.

It follows on from the release of his album Amore last year, which features his own versions of classic love songs, from the worlds of popular and classical music.    

All tickets £20

Debussy Sonata for violin and piano in G minor
Elgar String Quartet in E minor Op. 83
Korngold Suite for two violins, cello and piano left-hand Op. 23

LICMF 2018’s final concert brings together the two overarching themes of the festival - the centenaries of Debussy and World War 1. Both Debussy’s violin sonata and Elgar’s string quartet were composed during the war, in 1917 and 1918 respectively. Korngold’s glorious suite was written for Paul Wittgenstein, a successful pianist who lost his right arm during WW1 and who went on to commission left-hand works from many major composers.
