Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra & Festival Chorus

David Parry conductor
Savitri Grier violin
Jeni Bern soprano
Christopher Diffey tenor
Alexander Robin Baker baritone

The Festival Chorus perform a World Premiere commission from one of the UK’s foremost young composers Kemal Yusuf. Cain follows the life of the first-born human, and the world’s first murderer, in a work that speaks of suffering, self-worth and the compelling need to revive and make anew.

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and a stunning line-up of soloists accompany this ambitious choral work with two masterpieces of 19th century Romanticism. One of the country’s brightest young musicians, Savitri Grier performs solo violin with Chausson’s Poème. David Parry conducts a rarely heard masterpiece: Franck’s Symphony in D Minor, full of richly textured orchestrations and inspired originality.


Ernest Chausson : Poème Op. 25
Kemal Yusuf : Cain

MAX RICHTER ENSEMBLE


Hailed as the most influential composer of his generation, British electro-acoustic artist Max Richter is inspired equally by Bach, punk rock and ambient electronica. Richter’s sonic world blends a formal classical training with modern technology, with work including scores for the award-winning film Waltz with Bashir and Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island.

Richter and his ensemble will perform selections From SLEEP, his landmark work scored for piano, strings, electronics and voice, which was broadcast as part of BBC Radio 3’s Why Music?. Described by Richter as his ‘personal lullaby for a frenetic world,’ don’t miss an astounding night from this leading contemporary classical artist. The first half will feature a performance of The Blue Notebooks, which Pitchfork described as 'a gigantic beacon for composers searching for ways to introduce dance music's visceral qualities into the classical sphere.'

NAVARRA STRING QUARTET
Bath Festival

United Kingdom

NAVARRA STRING QUARTET

Beethoven’s Quartet Op 131 is one of his most extraordinary works and formed the backdrop to the film A Late Quartet. Here it is combined with a beautifully elegiac work by the Latvian Peteris Vasks, and the programme opens with one of Haydn’s most life affirming quartets. The Navarra Quartet are one of the UK’s leading young quartets, last appearing in Bath in 2011 in a packed out concert. They join us again this year for a two concert residency (2nd concert on Sat 28 May) this will be a great opportunity to hear their spirited and fresh approach, which has won them much international acclaim:

“the immaculately executed white-knuckle ride set up by the Navarras.” – Gramophone

“… compelling performances … hotly recommended” – BBC Music Magazine 5 star review of the Navarras recording of the Vasks quartets


Joseph Haydn : String Quartet Op 76 No 1 in G
Peteris Vasks : String Quartet No 3
