The Meritus Collective was established to bring together musicians of all instruments who shared a passion for chamber music and to provide platforms from which to perform. Members have trained at most of the major conservatoires in Britain and between them have performed as parts of chamber groups all around the world and for orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Meritus was the pseudonym of Felix Mendelssohn given to the young composer by Robert Schumann. It translates roughly as ‘happy through merit’ and is an inspiring and effective byword for this young and dynamic group of musicians who will be bringing a varied and exciting set of programmes to Lauderdale House over the coming year.

The Moeran Quartet take their name from the composer Ernest John Moeran (1894–1950). The four members of the quartet are all experienced chamber musicians with a passion for the championing of British music. They lead diverse and varied musical careers, playing regularly with orchestras such as the Hanover Band, the Urban Soul Orchestra, the Orchestra of St Paul’s and Opera Holland Park. Between them they have studied at the Royal Academy of Music, Trinity Laban Conservatoire and the Royal College of Music.
Studying at this latter establishment is not the only link with the eponymous composer. James Greenfield, cellist and past member of the Billroth Quartet, also attended the same boarding school, Uppingham; a school Moeran later returned to as a professor of music.
They look forward to bringing their passion for music to Lauderdale House, where they begin a residency in 2017.

Changing of "The Seasons"

Bruno Heinen, piano
Camerata Alma Viva


Bruno Heinen: Changing of "The Seasons".
1st Half: Bruno Heinen solo
2nd Half: Bruno Heinen/Camerata Alma Viva

The dynamic ensemble Camerata Alma Viva and renowned jazz pianist/composer Bruno Heinen have embarked on a daring new collaboration. They have recorded their take on one of the most recognisable and oft-performed works in all classical music. Heinen’s “Four Seasons” is a completely new composition. Rather than an arrangement of the Vivaldi, Heinen attempts to answer the question posed to him by the Camerata: If Vivaldi were alive today, what might a new “Four Seasons” sound like? Heinen explores a written and improvised language somewhere between jazz and impressionism to attempt an answer, with influences from historically-informed performance practice (emphasising the baroque spirit of freedom and transparency) and the language of modern jazz piano improvisation.
“The Four Seasons”, as one normally hears it, is a programmatic work, with the music depicting nature through sound, featuring thematic passages intertwined with improvisatory moments. Respect for the spirit of the piece is at the centre of the exciting new project, where a new perspective and free improvisation will enlighten and enrich each movement’s meaning, depth and essence.
They will be launching their album with a solo set from Heinen in the first half and their “Changing of the Seasons” in the second.

The Chiltern Camerata performs music by Brahms and Stravinsky

The Chiltern Camerata
The Camerata Consort of singers
Sam Laughton (conductor)

Brahms - A German Requiem
Stravinsky - Suite 'Pulcinella'


The players of the Chiltern Camerata follow up the exceptional success of the first concert of their current season when they return on Saturday, 25 February to All Saints' Parish Church, High Wycombe, in a performance of choral and orchestral music by Brahms and Stravinsky

They will be performing the Brahms German Requiem, in which the orchestra will be joined by soloists and singers from the Camerata Consort of singers. This large-scale work for chorus, orchestra, a soprano and a baritone soloist was composed between 1865 and 1868. A German Requiem is not primarily a Mass for the dead. Instead, it is intended as comfort for those who mourn and who feel the pain of the death of others. Brahms had just experienced such loss extremely personally: his mother had died that very same year.

Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite for orchestra in 8 short movements was composed in 1922 and is derived from the ballet of that name. It was the gateway to Stravinsky's second phase as a composer, the neoclassical, in which the composer looked back to the past in this charming, witty, disarmingly simple music influenced by eighteenth-century music.
