Wiener Sängerknaben
Schubert-Akademie
Gerald Wirth Conductor

Nach dem Erfolg in der letzten Saison wieder im Programm!
Seit über 500 Jahren singen die Wiener Sängerknaben in der Wiener Hofburgkapelle Messen und Motetten vom Mittelalter bis zur Moderne – an diesem Repertoire spiegelt sich die westliche Musikgeschichte. Geistliche Musik gibt es nicht nur im Christentum, und in dieser Konzertreihe bieten die Wiener Sängerknaben zusätzlich einen spannenden Ausblick auf spirituelle Musik aus anderen Kulturen.

Mit der eigens gegründeten Schubert-Akademie musizieren die Wiener Sängerknaben im MuTh Messen von Mozart, Haydn, Victoria, Schubert und Wirth; gepaart mit Hymnen, jüdischen Gesängen, indischen Bhajans, Qawwalis aus Pakistan, Liedern von Schamanen und Oberton-Meditationen.

Jedes der Konzerte befasst sich mit einem Thema: In der zweiten Saison geht es um Verzweiflung, Wut und Schrecken sowie Chaos.

Philosophen und Autoren, Schauspieler, Naturwissenschaftler und Politiker lesen dazu und denken gemeinsam mit dem Publikum über das Gehörte nach.

Celebrating its 16th season, the critically-acclaimed Ensemble for the Romantic Century (ERC) returns to BAM Fisher with a two-week run of The Dreyfus Affair. Written by Eve Wolf and directed by Donald T. Sanders, this multi-media production illuminates the controversial story of the 1894 treason conviction of Captain Alfred Dreyfus that had a decades-long reverberation in the political landscape of France and the rest of the world. Featuring Max von Essen (Tony Nominee for An American in Paris) in the title role of Alfred Dreyfus and Mark Evans (Irish Rep's Finian's Rainbow) as his devoted brother Mathieu Dreyfus, this tragic tale of intrigue, undying love, conspiracy, and political will is brought to life through the fusion of drama, history, and music.

Jana Ozoliņa Violin
Sinfonietta Rīga
Normunds Šnē Conductor

Already for several years, Latvian violinist Jana Ozoliņa studies and works in Switzerland, frequently taking additional classes from the renowned violinist Boris Kuschnir. She performs with the Young Eurasian Soloists, chamber orchestra formed by her. In Riga the skilled and spirited soloist will perform the Vivaldi-inspired, melodically throbbing concerto The American Four Seasons by the founding father of American minimalism, Philip Glass. Another unusual encounter proposed by Sinfonietta Rīga will be the one with the string piece by Unsuk Chin, the best-known Korean composer in Europe – inspired by graffiti seen on the streets and embellished with bells and gongs. And finally, a new chamber concerto by the quiet Latvian with an ironic smile Oskars Herliņš.

Melodia Women’s Choir led by Cynthia Powell, Areta Zhulla (violin), Rita Costanzi (harp), an all-female string quintet, and Taisiya Pushkar (collaborative pianist)



Melodia Women’s Choir, New York’s premier ensemble for women’s choral music conducted by Cynthia Powell, continues its 14th season with Awakening the Spirit in a soaring concert featuring the U.S. premiere of John Rutter’s “Visions.” Written by Rutter as a showcase for violin and choir, “Visions” is a powerful work that examines the spiritual, religious, and historic importance of Jerusalem as a symbol of “a utopian ideal of heavenly peace and seraphic bliss for redeemed humanity” in four movements. Melodia is excited to work with accomplished violin soloist Areta Zhulla, along with harpist Rita Costanzi, and an all-female string quintet.

Also on the program is “The Dancers” from notable Welsh composer Grace Williams (1906-1977), and women’s choral favorite “Choral Hymns from the Rig Veda” by Gustav Holst (1874–1934). “To say that I’m excited about this music would be an understatement,” says Artistic Director Cynthia Powell. “To be able to offer the U.S. premiere of a new work by John Rutter is a thrilling thing in and of itself, but to bring to life the gorgeous choral suite ‘The Dancers’ by Grace Williams.... Add to that the exquisite playing of violinist Areta Zhulla, and we have a knockout concert.”

BBC Total Immersion Day: Edgard Varèse
Barbican Hall, London
Barbican, Silk Street, London EC2
United Kingdom
020 7638 8891
http://www.barbican.org.uk/eticketing



An introduction to the life and music of French-American composer Edgard Varese.

Edgard Varèse, even a half century after his death, remains a controversial yet cult figure. Born in France in 1883, he moved to Italy to study and knew all the major artistic figures of his day. He emigrated to the US in 1915 and, apart from a five-year stint in Paris, remained there until his death in 1965.

His unique voice and rigorous, though eclectic aesthetic, influenced countless younger composers even though his entire output can be performed in about three hours. So this Total Immersion is truly total - embracing every note he ever composed, including screenings of specially recorded BBC Symphony Orchestra films of Etude pour Espace and Ecuatorial.


Other events in the Total Immersion Day:
11am and 6.45pm Reconstruction of Varèse’s piece for tape Poéme électronique, Foyers
12pm Talk, Fountain Room
2pm Concert, Milton Court

Players from the BBC SSO join with Yarn/Wire to perform Mâche’s award winning Kassandra from 1977, typical of the composer’s investigations with sounds in nature, zoomusicology and human speech patterns. Linda Catlin Smith’s Wilderness is an exploration of orchestral colour, with the possibilities of the orchestra itself a kind of Wilderness, and its followed by a new orchestral work by Lori Goldston. After the interval, legendary Australian trio The Necks improvise with Ilan Volkov and the BBC SSO, with a typical exploration into the zones between improvisation, post-rock, jazz, ambient, and orchestral music.

Tim Gill cello
Fali Pavri piano
Sound Intermedia sound projection

With its sonorous bass tones and piercing high register, the cello has fascinated composers for generations. As part of the Cello Unwrapped series at Kings Place, our Principal Cellist Tim Gill presents a survey of the styles and sounds of contemporary cello repertoire through the 20th and 21st centuries. From the mesmeric spiritualism of Messiaen and Pärt, through the concise pointillism of Webern, to the athletic virtuosity of Xenakis’ Kottos – “rough, harsh and full of noise” – this programme probes the cello’s many different characters, and the voices it has found in the contemporary music landscape.

Edinburgh-based composer Shiori Usui’s from scratch is a revised version of her 2007 work, based on her experience of eczema and is scored for orchestra, improvised voice/percussion and live-electronics. Following this Tim Hodgkinson, Shelley Hirsch and Paul May perform as a trio.
After the move to the Grand Hall, Lawrence Dunn’s Ambling, waking is about the everyday struggle to emerge from sleep, but also about ‘waking’, as in mourning. Linda Catlin Smith’s Adagietto pays homage to the slow movements of classical and Baroque orchestral music, their pace “allowing for more complex harmony to be heard”. James Saunders’ World Premiere is typical of his open-form compositions that explore group behaviours and decision making, in this case using memory and mental effort to determine the resulting orchestral sound. Finally, Roscoe Mitchell’s Conversations for soloists and orchestra are based upon transcriptions of works from both of his CDs of the same name.

After a terrible mistake leaves the ancient sage Chyavana blinded, the beautiful princess Sukanya finds herself marrying for the sake of her kingdom. As a pair of swaggering, meddling gods watch this unlikely union blossom, will love grow in the strangest of circumstances?
Taken from the legendary Sanskrit texts of the Mahābhārata, the story of Sukanya has been brought to life in this innovative production with music by Indian music legend Ravi Shankar and combines traditional Indian instruments with Western orchestra and singers.
This performance is directed by Curve Associate Director Suba Das and unites dance choreographed by the Aakash Odedra Company, production by the Royal Opera and the musicians of the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Come and experience Ravi Shankar’s Sukanya. This special event combining myth, music and dance brings Ravi Shankar’s opera to life for the very first time.

Franck Chevalier, viola
Pierre Morlet, cello

Today, electronics have created unimagined possibilities to a new generation of musicians.

Anima by Ashley Fure represents a quest for electric blood, for digital breathing…. Like a stethoscope listening to the body’s secrets, the performers move transducers from one spot to another on their instruments; instruments that then become loudspeakers.
In memory of the Italian composer Fausto Romitelli, The 1987 Max Headroom Broadcast Incident by Mauro Lanza is a tribute to obsolescent or soon to be forgotten technologies.
In Philipp Maintz’ Geubteste Ferne, the composer questions each instrument’s heterogeneity. How does one keep an open mind when presented with an unexpected object? How does one understand its qualities?

Ghost stories by Oscar Strasnoy blends the voices of famous authors with instrumental sounds. Like genies trapped in lamps, Perec Calvino and Borges speak to us as if they were still alive.
For works that, via alterations or electronics, shift the representation of the string quartet.

Cecilia McDowall : Not just a place - Dark memories from an old tango hall
Judith Weir : Several Concertos
Hilary Tann : In the Theatre of Air
Chen Yi : Night Thoughts

Steven Isserlis, cello

Bach’s cello suites are among his very finest music and Steven Isserlis’s performances are justly of world renown. Britten’s Cello Suites, written for the great cellist Rostropovich, mirror them in depth of emotional expression and Kurtag’s miniature character pieces add the icing on the cake of a fascinating programme.

J.S. Bach : Solo Cello Suite No. 5
Gyorgy Kurtag : Az Hit
Gyorgy Kurtag : Pilinszky János: Gérard de Nerval
Gyorgy Kurtag : In memoriam Ferenc Wilheim
Benjamin Britten : Solo Cello Suite No. 3
