Ruins and Reflections

Londinium, chamber choir
Andrew Griffiths, conductor

Gabriel Jackson: Lamentations of Jeremiah
Philippe de Monte: Super flumina Babylonis
Nico Mulhy: Recordare, Domine (UK Premiere)
Alberto Ginastera: Lamentations of Jeremiah
Rudolf Mauersberger: Wie liegt die Stadt so wüst
William Byrd: Quomodo cantabimus
Cecilia McDowall: The Lord is Good
Darius Milhaud: Les Deux Cités


In an eclectic and moving programme of choral music, Londinium takes its cue from the traditional Holy Week service of Tenebrae in exploring musical responses to the Book of Lamentations. These powerful words, written in response to the destruction of Jerusalem and the exile of the Israelites in Babylon, have found resonance with composers of many different periods, amongst them Byrd, a Catholic in a Protestant land, Ginastera, blacklisted by Perón’s Argentina, and Rudolf Mauersberger, mourning the devastation of his beloved Dresden. They continue to inspire new music today: our programme includes the UK première of Nico Muhly's 'Recordare, Domine', and two works written in 2012, Gabriel Jackson's 'Lamentations of Jeremiah' and Cecilia McDowall's 'The Lord is Good', which looks forward to Israel restored. Completing the journey from despair to new hope is Milhaud's superb, rarely-performed cantata 'Les Deux Cités', painting in exuberant colours the Revelation vision of the new Jerusalem.

Handel: Hercules

The ancient Greek tragedian Sophocles was also a war general who knew first-hand the devastating psychological trauma that imperilled returning veterans. With Hercules, Handel’s take on Sophocles' play, Peter Sellars creates for Canadian Opera Company a healing work in which the untold horrors of war and the unspoken complications of reunion find their voice. The cast includes Eric Owens, Alice Coote, David Daniels and Richard Croft, and the performance is conducted by Harry Bicket. Sets are by George Tsypin and costumes by Dunya Ramicova.

Steven Isserlis performs Elgar

Steven Isserlis, cello
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Kirill Karabits, conductor

Prokofiev: Symphony No.1, 'Classical'
Elgar: Cello Concerto
Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade

The great cellist Steven Isserlis performs Elgar’s Cello Concerto, with Kirill Karabits at the helm. Elgar wrote the piece – his last major work – in the wake of the First World War. The Concerto is suffused with desolate beauty, and the human quality of the cello makes it the perfect mouthpiece for such profoundly moving music. Framing the Concerto are works by Prokofiev and Rimsky-Korsakov. Prokofiev’s ‘Classical’ Symphony is a witty tribute to the music of Haydn and his contemporaries, while Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade is a glittering and irresistible score.

Asrael Symphony

Nikolai Demidenko, piano
Singapore Symphony Orchestra
Lan Shui, conductor

Liszt: Piano Concerto No 1 in E flat
Suk: Symphony No 2 in C minor, Op 27, 'Asrael'

'I was saved by music', Czech composer Josef Suk wrote of his Asrael Symphony, a work born out of the loss of his teacher and father-in-law, Antonín Dvorák, in 1904, and of his wife in 1905. This late-Romantic masterpiece, named for the angel of death, draws also on Bohemian folk music and covers an extraordinary emotional span. The concert also features Nikolai Demidenko in Liszt’s thrilling Piano Concerto No 1. There will be a pre-concert talk at 6.30pm in the Esplanade Library.

Georgia Mancio, with Nigel Price, guitar, and Julie Walkington, double bass.

Georgia Mancio, vocals
Nigel Price, guitar,
Julie Walkington, double bass.

Since winning the 2005 International Young Singers Award in Brussels, Georgia has steadily built a career that puts her, in the opinion of many critics, at the top of the list of ‘new-generation’ female singers. Though much of that reputation comes from her enthusiasm for Portuguese and Italian songwriters, for this concert Georgia returns to her first love – some of the great standard songs beloved of audiences worldwide.
Nigel leads an extremely successful organ/guitar group in the UK, but working with Georgia brings out his more pensive side.
Georgia will also be joined by one of her favourites, Julie Walkington, with her big, rich sound and great time.
