'There's a sense of positive musical creativity in Liverpool', says composer Kenneth Hesketh, who took siren whistles, images of cinema and that golden glow at the end of the day to create his riotous Theatre of Attractions. Gary Carpenter takes a tropical journey, the late John McCabe loses himself in the Australian jungle, and amidst all the colour and action, new voices make themselves heard with a world premiere from Christopher Brooks Composition Prize winner, Bethan Morgan-Williams.

John Taverner: Missa Gloria Tibi Trinitas
John Sheppard: Motets

In October 1526, Oxford’s newest college – the boastfully titled Cardinal College – was founded by Cardinal Wolsey, Lord Chancellor of England. Wolsey had been at school and university in Oxford so it was fitting for Wolsey to found an educational establishment in Oxford. And Cardinal College (later Christ Church) was a spectacular foundation, not least musically. The choir of sixteen choristers and at least a dozen singing men was a large and thoroughly professional outfit. It required a superlative musician to run this impressive ensemble, and John Taverner was just such a person.

The Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas is Taverner’s masterpiece, and it sparkles with contemporary fervour. The Mass is based on a plainchant antiphon for Trinity Sunday: Cardinal College was dedicated to the Trinity, so the piece is locked into a time and a place. And the equal-note rendition of the plainchant in the second highest part in the In nomine section of the Benedictus spawned a whole new musical genre: the instrumental ‘In nomine’. And all the while Taverner experimented with and combined continental imitative practice, thrilling sequential writing, and English harmonic sonorities in a unique way.

This was the musical landscape that surrounded John Sheppard as he grew up, and two years before Taverner died, Sheppard became Director of Music at Magdalen College in Oxford. Sheppard’s music also inhabited a unique soundworld – one that was characterized by bold harmonic shifts and a wilful and minimalistic fascination for choral textures. Four of Sheppard’s best-loved motets are presented here as footnotes to the four movements of Taverner’s Mass, in order to show how Taverner’s bold experiments influenced an equally bold and original younger contemporary.

2016-2017 Chameleon's 15th Anniversary Season event 1

“No! Chameleon Musicians don’t change their colors in the middle of performance. Nor do they switch their attire in keeping with what they are playing. They don’t even stick out long gummy tongues to assist in turning the pages of the music. What they actually do, is play with brilliance, energy, accurate intonation and fine ensemble.
The group, which has been performing for thirteen years, changes its personnel in accordance with the requirements of the music. This can vary considerably within a program, and takes place in one of the best possible locations for chamber music—the Josephine Leiser Center in downtown Fort Lauderdale. No stage, no formal concert hall, just a sunny (this is Florida you know), intimate room around which are grouped chairs within mere feet of the players.” (American Record Guide, Alan Becker)

The Latin Classical Chamber Orchestra

'One of the most outstanding Spanish pianists.' (The Daily Telegraph)

Join Spanish virtuoso pianist José Menor and The Latin Classical Chamber Orchestra on an exhilarating musical journey to eighteenth-century Spain as they mark the 2016 centenary of the great Spanish composer Enrique Granados (1867-1916) with a unique multi-media programme inspired by the life and times of Granados’ greatest muse, the Spanish painter Francisco de Goya (1746-1828).

Granados was fascinated by the artworks of Francisco de Goya - falling in love (in his own words) 'with the psychology of Goya and his palette ... his quarrels, loves and flatteries'. Recognised internationally as a leading exponent of Granados, the pre-eminent Spanish pianist José Menor - cited as 'the successor to Alicia de Larrocha' (Diario de Burgos) - will give a complete performance of Granados' magnum opus, the monumental piano suite Goyescas alongside other sumptuous vignettes also composed under the Goya banner, as part of a commemorative world tour launched at New York’s Carnegie Hall in March.

In collaboration with the Latin Classical Chamber Orchestra and special guests including classical guitarist Laura Snowden, soprano Christin Wismann and the illustrious flamenco dancer and percussionist Nina Corti, this exuberant programme also explores the elegant musical aesthetic of Goya's era and its intoxicating effect on the Romantic imagination of Granados’ contemporaries and beyond, to the 20th-century works of de Falla and the film music of Roque Baños. Expect a colourful programme of fiery Spanish fandangos, seguidillas and boleros coupled with well-known classical favourites by Beethoven, Scarlatti and Haydn, set against the Baroque splendour of St John's Smith Square.

Originally curated for The National Gallery as part of the 2015 blockbuster exhibition 'Goya: The Portraits', this 'simply fascinating' programme (Genteventos) is accompanied by a stunning visual projection of Goya artworks and will be introduced by Granados' great-granddaughter Bárbara Granados.

'Devastatingly sublime.' (Music & Vision)
