JS Bach’s work is so powerful – and has been so influential - perhaps because of his ability to write music that provokes a profound emotional response at the same time as being highly intellectually satisfying.

While Steve Reich’s series of solo instrument counterpoints are no direct homage to Bach, they are a contemporary expression of some of those compositional techniques that Bach so brilliantly mastered and used to powerful effect, as shown in his solo instrumental sonatas which are performed alongside. Reich’s soloist performs pulsed and fragmented musical phrases that are echoed, interlocked and sustained by a pre-recorded tape line. The listener is left picking out new melodic patterns that emerge from the resulting mutil-layered, hugely satisfying canonic textures.

Openly inspired by Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos, Igor Stravinsky’s own reinvention of the baroque concerto was written for performance in the magnificent music room of Dumbarton Oaks, a house outside Washington DC. The music’s figurations, sonorities and counterpoints all echo Bach, but without any plagiarism. Stravinsky’s arrangement of four preludes and fugues from The Well-Tempered Clavier (the last thing the composer worked on) is another kind of homage – a re-orchestration of Bach’s music using the colour palette of modern instruments

Takemitsu was a pivotal figure in opening up an authentic creative dialogue between Western and Japanese music. When he retreated to his mountain villa to write November Steps, significantly, he took Debussy’s Jeux with him. The result was a haunting, twilit masterpiece which employs the shakahuchii and biwa, to be performed here beside works of Takemitsu’s contemporaries (Akira Miyoshi, Toshio Hosokawa) and of the next generation, including Dai Fujikura, who trained almost entirely in the UK and only discovered his native traditional instruments in Europe. His high-octane orchestral writing is both streetwise, humorous and sophisticated, while French-based Misato Mochizuki has devised her Musubi (Knot) from a traditional celebratory dance, but has also utilised techno dance music and gagaku in her work . Film has been an important medium for these composers, and Takemitsu’s film scores are explored in our first event. Don’t miss, too, the rare opportunity to hear a unique Fusion Project, in which traditional Japanese instrumentalists play alongside members of the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

BBC Singers
Paul Brough conductor


The BBC Singers conjure up a series of musical seascapes at St Paul's Knightsbridge. Maritime subjects - real and imaginary, triumphant and tragic - have always been a source of fascination for poets and composers, and in this concert the BBC Singers present a programme of sea-themed works from Coleridge-Taylor, Bantock, Richard Rodney Bennett and two Renaissance masters. The tragic Canticum Calamitatis Maritimae by Finnish composer Mantyjarvi was composed after the sinking of the MS Estonia and the loss of over 800 lives at sea in 1994, while Steve Martland's new Sea Songs (here receiving its English premiere) references a range of sea songs and texts.

The first of three concerts celebrating one of the most admired composers of a generation: Mark Anthony Turnage. 'From the Wreckage' (‘outstanding: the music begins hellishly but gradually picks up a bluesy swing… I was mesmerised.’ The Times) was premiered in 2005; original soloist Håkan Hardenberger returns to reprise the role. Tapiola brings Finnish forest God Tapio to shimmering life while Beethoven’s 'Eroica' dwells in the human realm of roaring victories and crushing defeats.

Mark Anthony Turnage’s Speranza (‘Hope’) is a monument to the power of optimism in a bleak world – ‘I started working on the piece while thinking about the absence of hope. I wanted to lift people up.’ Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto offers the composer’s trademark thundering drama juxtaposed with sweet grace. While Tapiola spoke of forest Gods, the rippling Oceanides breathes life into the female water spirits of Greek mythology.

Written in just three days, Shostakovich’s Festive Overture is a dazzling tour de force, demanding breathtaking agility from the whole orchestra. Also written in haste, the Karelia Suite by Sibelius is one of his most popular works, its shimmering textures and bold melodies celebrating the composer’s native Finland. Prokofiev’s dynamic and colourful First Piano Concerto was written when he was a student; Prokofiev premiered the Concerto himself, considering it to be his first mature work. This programme culminates in the grandeur of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition orchestrated by Ravel, each movement vividly conjuring up a different scene.

Free Spirits is the first of our themed seasons. It brings together two of the greatest operas of the 20th century, Janáček’s The Cunning little Vixen and Berg’s Lulu. Both pieces pose profound questions about how much freedom we desire and how much we can tolerate and still remain a functioning society.
She is a vision of freedom too pure to be allowed to last.
Everyone is drawn to Lulu, intoxicated by her; those in her thrall are like moths to a flame. Her flame burns bright and fast but sooner or later it will be extinguished by the very things it once fed upon.
Berg’s second and final opera is a masterpiece – total theatre. Anyone wishing to see the greatest works in the repertoire must include Lulu in their list. Few composers invite their audiences unflinchingly to confront humanity’s darkest regions in the way that Berg does here. Lulu promises a shattering but rewarding experience for those who encounter it.

Welsh National Opera has an important association with this great composer’s work: WNO gave the first British performances of Lulu in the 1970s and won acclaim and awards for our 2005 production of Wozzeck. David Pountney is one of the world’s most influential opera directors. This production of Lulu is his first new production in his role as our Chief Executive and Artistic Director.

Supported by the WNO Partnership, the WNO Lulu Circle and The John S Cohen Foundation. Spring 2013 Season supported by a lead gift from the Colwinston Charitable Trust.

Performances also on 16th and 23rd February.

Conductor/Piano: Ryan Wigglesworth
Piano: Nicolas Hodges
Electronics: Nye Parry



Richard Baker is one of the foremost composer-conductors of his generation. Commissioned through BCMG’s Sound Investment scheme, Baker’s new work for ensemble and electronics addresses the theme of ‘irrational exuberance’; taking in Ravel’s death-driven waltzes, and the sounds of 80s New York disco; with live electronics that Baker has developed together with his colleague, composer/sound artist Nye Parry.

BCMG premiered Causton’s Chamber Symphony in 2009 and this performance will be the Group’s first since Causton revised the piece following its premiere.

Giving context to these works are three pieces from the 1940s and 50s. Scored for unorthodox percussion instruments, John Cage’s Second Construction is one of a series of three works composed between 1939-42, while Cage was touring the west coast of America with a percussion ensemble.

Oiseaux exotiques (Exotic Birds), for piano and an orchestra of winds and percussion, is an enchanting sound fantasy containing imitations of no fewer than 40 different birdsongs or calls. Pianist Nicolas Hodges, the soloist for the Messiaen, is joined by Ryan Wigglesworth to open the concert with Igor Stravinsky’s Sonata for Two Pianos.

There will be a free pre-concert talk from 6-6.30pm with Richard Baker, open to all ticket holders.

Theatre is at the heart of David Sawer’s incisive and original music, and his new commission Flesh and Blood is a dramatic scena, with words by Howard Barker, featuring star soloists Christine Rice and Marcus Farnsworth. Dieter Schnebel’s Schubert-Fantasia recalls dreamlike fragments from Schubert’s G major Piano Sonata refracted through a shimmering haze of dissonant harmonies. 150 years earlier, Schubert wrote his ‘Great’ Ninth Symphony, a powerful feat of sustained momentum, driven by buoyant rhythms, explosive emotions and vast, inexorable climaxes which Ilan Volkov will no doubt shape with his characteristically dynamic vision.

Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire was premiered at the Berlin Choralion-Saal on 16 October 1912. The small mixed ensemble that Schoenberg invented for this masterpiece of early atonal music has over the last 100 years become a ‘standard ensemble’, spawning a large repertoire for this grouping of instruments by subsequent composers.

Pierrot Lunaire is a three-part work that sets German translations of poems by Albert Giraud. The eight instruments played by five performers are arranged differently in every number and produce an amazing variety of sound. A striking feature of the work is the vocalist’s Sprechstimme (speech-singing), an eerie declamation between song and speech, where the pitch is sounded but not held; instead, the vocalist immediately leaves the note, falling or rising to the next.

Olivier Messiaen’s Quatuor pour la fin du temps (Quartet for the end of time) was first heard on a brutally cold January night in 1941, at the Stalag VIIIA prisoner-of-war camp, in Görlitz, Germany. The title does not exaggerate the ambitions of the piece. An inscription in the score supplies a catastrophic image from the Book of Revelation: ‘In homage to the Angel of the Apocalypse, who lifts his hand toward heaven, saying, “There shall be time no longer”.

The Quartet is however, the gentlest apocalypse imaginable. There are no roaring sound-masses of doom, but instead fiercely elegant dances, whose rhythms swing along in intricate patterns without ever obeying a regular beat - episodes of transfixing serenity, to which words fail to do justice. That Messiaen’s apocalypse has little to do with history and catastrophe, but instead records the rebirth of an ordinary soul in the grip of extraordinary emotion, is why the Quartet remains as overpowering today as it was on that frigid night in 1941.

Thursday 21 – Sunday 24 February

As well as creating a platform for music emerging from research, this year’s festival will explore the theme of memory as a virtual sixth sense - through inward journeys of the human brain and the pursuit of lost memories of childhood, forgotten ancestors and global connections.

Drawing on both classical and electronic music Sensing Memory will implement innovative research into computer music and engage with classic orchestral experiences to reveal new sound worlds to the audience. The theme of Sensing Memory is allied to a new four-year ICCMR research project being funded by EPSRC entitled Brain-Computer Interface for Monitoring and Inducing Affective States led by Prof Eduardo R Miranda and Dr Slawomir J. Nasuto at the University of Reading’s Cybernetics Research Group. This project aims to create an intelligent musical computer that can help someone adjust their emotions when they are depressed or stressed. The computer will play music, analysing the person’s brain activity as they do so, allowing it to select what sounds to generate based on how close the person is to feeling the way they want. This research will impact on the health and entertainment industries such as the gaming industry.

Intimately heard and intensely played, Present Music takes you In the Chamber. Andrew Norman’s Sabina, inspired by Roman churches in the early morning, shines through sophisticated patterns and grows with the light and warmth of experience while Ted Hearne’s Vessels travels through difficult yet forceful turns of mood and understanding. Other selections featured honor the Composer’s idols. Motion, composed by Nico Muhly, is a tribute to Orlando Gibbons’s verse anthem See, See the World, which captures the nervous energy of obsessive counting. Inspiration for I Found it by the Sea, composed by Tmothy Andres, is drawn from Brahms’ chamber music, creating space and resolution between its variations. Witness the inspiration behind each piece, as Present Music brings you up close and personal with our musicians. Experience In the Chamber.
