Mosaic - London Myriad Ensemble

London Myriad Ensemble


Following a very successful concert in February, London Composers Forum takes pride and delight in joining forces for a second time with the London Myriad Ensemble, to present a concert at Lauderdale House, showcasing the music of the ten Forum composers who featured in the February concert.
Since its conception as a professional chamber group in 2004, the London Myriad Ensemble has performed regularly in the UK and internationally. As first prize International Competition winners in 2009, the ensemble performs a wide repertoire as a flexible ensemble with a wind quartet as its core which expands to quintet when required. ww.londonmyriad.com
With a keen interest in new music and in expanding the repertoire for woodwind chamber ensemble, the London Myriad Ensemble welcomes this second collaboration with London Composers Forum and the chance to explore the broad variety of exciting and accessible music which Forum composers have contributed.
The works in the programme range from jazz-inspired through to pastoral, humorous, festive and elegiac in character and present a fascinating cross-section of the creative mix that makes London Composers Forum a vibrant and dynamic focus for new music in the capital. This concert is supported by the RVW Trust.
London Composers Forum is open to all composers interested in composing contemporary classical music. New members are welcomed regularly.

Madame Viardot's Salon

Members of Salon Musical and Test-of-Time Entertainment

Songs, violin and piano music by Fauré, Chopin, Duparc and Elgar
Poetry by Baudelaire

Salon Musical is a unique show of theatre and music where audience members escape the every-day and venture into a world of beautiful music and poetry as well as flirtation, gossip and intrigue. A cast of five young professional performers, two singers, an actor, a violinist and a pianist, all graduates from the top London music and drama conservatoires, play historical characters and weave together music and scripted dialogue. The show's creation has involved academic research as well as professional direction and costume design.

Experience has shown that the shows bring alive the past in an informative yet entertaining way. The performers engage with the audience throughout the evening to create a relaxed, immersive and intimate social gathering.

Picture yourself as a guest at the home of celebrated 19th century singer, composer and pianist Pauline Viardot, being introduced to emerging composer Gabriel Fauré, eminent and provocative poet Stéphane Mallarmé and their protégés. They will be performing their latest music and poetry and you will witness their spontaneous music-making.
