Honegger
Pastorale d'ete
Mozart Piano Concerto K488
Frank Martin
Pavane Couleur du temps
Schubert  Symphony No.5

 A beautifully intimate setting will set the tone for this warm and profound concert in St James’ Church. Starting with Honneger’s Pastorale d'ete (of the Summer), demonstrating the composers love for the summer. Enjoy pastel shades of musicality, as they shine beautifully through the warmth of the orchestra’s musical glow. Honneger piece expresses the feeling of summer walks through flowery, sun-drenched meadows. Mozart’s piano concerto not only stirs the emotions with its beautiful melodies but also surprises with its very special second movement, where the tonality changes to F# minor in a darkly sensitive moment of vulnerability played to perfection by piano soloist Jean-Sélim. Swiss composer Frank Martin draws the concert back into sunny the climes of a summer’s day, before finishing the programme on Shubert’s 5th Symphony that demonstrates his wonderful gift for writing songs and beautiful melodies. A climax that is as sincere and close to the heart as the concert itself.

Friday 6th April

 Moore Moss Rutter

with Danny Pedler & Rosie Butler-Hall

7.30 pm

Terry O'Toole Theatre, Lincoln

A series of remarkable gigs has heightened the sense of anticipation around the reunion of Tom Moore, Archie Churchill-Moss and Jack Rutter in the trio that won them the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award.  Seven years on, having toured with some of the biggest and best acts in contemporary folk music, they now reconvene to release their third album together.Widely regarded as three of the best players of traditional folk among a precociously gifted generation, their finely-crafted arrangements wield a rare potency, featuring new compositions as well as ancient traditional music.

Supporting Moore Moss Rutter here tonight, Danny Pedler and Rosie Butler-Hall are two young, dynamic musicians who formed as a duo in late 2011. Danny plays Hurdy Gurdy and Accordion and Rosie plays five-string Fiddle and sings. Their music is characterised by flowing melodies, intricate harmonies and strong rhythms, while keeping the flavour of the traditional style.

'Energetic, yet refined, expressive but totally rooted in the groove, these two musicians effortlessly delight and compel the listener.' - John Dipper (English Acoustic Collective, Methera, Morris Offspring and Dipper-Malkin)

Stamford Arts Centre

Trio Isimsiz

8.00 pm

Stamford Ballroom

Trio Isimsiz was formed in 2009. They have received various accolades including most recently First Prize and the Audience Prize at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition 2015 and Second Prize at the 2017 International Haydn Chamber Music Competition in Vienna.

Their Stamford concert brings three interesting compositions for Piano Trio. Schubert’s one-movement Sonatensatz was written when he was just 15 in the August of 1812, just after he had been dismissed from the choir of the Imperial Chapel in Vienna after his voice broke.

Beethoven’s pair of piano trios numbered Op. 70 was written four years earlier while spending the summer in Heiligenstadt. They were written immediately after the Sixth Symphony, and mark a return to the intimacy of chamber music which he had set aside between 1804 and 1808, while he wrestled with the ground-breaking Fifth Symphony, and composed wonders such as the Fourth Piano Concerto.

Brahms’ first piano trio was first written when Brahms was turning 21. He revised it in 1889 so, although he wrote two further piano trios (Opp. 87 and 101), Op. 8 is simultaneously Brahms’ first and last compositions for Piano Trio!

Tickets: £18.00
