Bandish - festival of legendary composers

In July 2010, India's National Centre Performing Arts Mumbai launched Bandish: The Festival of Legendary Composers with the aim of allowing audiences to revel in a celebration of the compositions of legendary Indian composers. Bandish is essentially a well structured composition, based on which a raga performance can take shape. A composer (vaggeykar, nayak, rachnakar) as the creator of both lyrics (sahitya) and melodic or rhythmic content is a much revered figure in the Indian tradition. The collective works of many composers through the ages have given rise to a vast repository of musical ideas that constitute our musical heritage today. The three-day festival showcases some of the most treasured works of great composers, presented by eminent artists from north and south India.

Budapest Music Festival 2015

International festival of choirs and orchestras in Budapest (Hungary)

Budapest - a city with one of the best locations in the world. No visitor of the Hungarian capital can resist its beauty. The city enchants, impresses, and fascinates at the same time. The Danube divides the city into the hilly Buda and the flat Pest. The most interesting attractions of Budapest are the Fishermen's Bastion, the Mathias Church, the Royal Castle, the Citadel, and the Parliament building. It is here, 'by the beautiful blue Danube', that the Budapest Music Festival takes place.

New York Choral Society Summer Sing - Mozart Night

Presented by
The New York Choral Society
David Hayes, Music Director

The New York Choral Society invites you to experience the fun of singing classical choral masterpieces, popular opera choruses and a selection of holiday music with acclaimed conductors from the New York area. Join us in raising the roof with song each Wednesday in July.

Wednesday, July 8 - Mozart Night
Spend an entire evening…just singing Mozart. Mozart’s Requiem–one of the most popular works in the choral repertoire. Left unfinished at his death, it is arguably some of Mozart’s most personal writing; strong and powerful yet at times heartbreakingly tender. Ave Verum Corpus—a 3-minute gem.

Picnic Jazz with John Etheridge's Sweet Chorus

Sweet Chorus
John Etheridge, guitar
Christian Garrick, violin
Dave Kelbie, guitar
Andy Crowdy, double bass

John Etheridge formed Sweet Chorus in 1998 as a personal tribute to Stephane Grappelli, the greatest violinist of Jazz, with whom he had toured for many years in the late 70s and early 80s.

The band takes its cue from the great Reinhardt/Grappelli repertoire of 1930s classics but is in no way a slavish imitation of that music.

Inspired by Grappelli’s always questing spirit the band evinces dazzling forays into repertoire from all periods ..always engaging and committed.

£35 Family ticket available on www.lauderdalehouse.co.uk
Bring along your picnic basket and your blanket for a chance to enjoy John Etheridge's Sweet Chorus perform on Lauderdale's Tea Lawn.

Ends at 9.30pm.

The Ascent of the Soul

Renaissance Singers
David Allinson, director

To include:
Morales: Jubilate Deo
Victoria: Missa Gaudeamus

Spanish Renaissance polyphony is often described as 'mystical' – in contrast to the cooler, more 'objective' beauty of the music of Palestrina. If one city might be considered the crucible of Spanish mysticism, it is Avila, 'town of Stones and Saints'.

Sitting high in a rocky wilderness in central Spain, it was the birthplace of Saint Teresa, mystic and reformer, whose 500th anniversary is celebrated this year. During the 16th century its cathedral was a centre of musical excellence, employing superb organists and composers.

In this concert we celebrate the music of two Spaniards who came to dominate the European musical scene, but whose music is infused with the spirit of Avila: Cristobál de Morales (maestro de capilla at the cathedral, 1526-28) and Tomás Luis de Victoria, who learned the craft of composition there as a choirboy.
