The Arensky Chamber Orchestra

J S Bach: Art of Fugue
R Strauss: Metamorphosen



ACO Resident Orchestra at The Forge event 2

"There's never been anything more beautiful in all of music.” - Glenn Gould on the eve of recording the Art of Fugue

"The most perfect works of counterpoint ever written, 'a compendium of revelations’ blossoming from just one melody of arresting simplicity. A composer traumatised by 'the most terrible period of human history’ and driven to write an elegy for his war-torn home. These are the ingredients of two of the greatest polyphonic works ever written - Bach’s Art of Fugue and Strauss’ Metamorphosen.

In the ACO’s second concert at The Forge, you’ll find yourself immersed in a unique performance of both these masterpieces. First you’ll be surrounded by Bach’s extraordinary fugues, ranging from the serene to the brilliant, as members of the ACO perform each one from a different location around the hall. Then the orchestra’s string principals will perform Strauss’s Metamorphosen 'in the round’ at the heart of the Forge, drawing you into the intense melancholia of this memorial for bomb-destroyed Munich, which with ends with a ghostly echo from Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’.

Ivana Gavric - Pianist

British pianist Ivana Gavric created a sensation with her debut disc In the mists, winning BBC Music Magazine Newcomer of the Year 2011 for ‘playing of an altogether extraordinary calibre’. Her recent third disc of works by Grieg, also on Champs Hill Records, was selected as Editor’s Choice in Gramophone and noted for ‘an electrifying performance’ (BBC Music Magazine). The Grieg Society has voted the CD as its ‘Recording of the Year’.

This season, Ivana has made debuts with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic with Rafael Payare, as well as with the Grammy-nominated Trondheim Soloists. Previously, she has performed with the Aurora Orchestra, and collaborated with conductors including Ben Gernon, Nicholas Collon and Christian Kluxen. Named Gramophone’s ‘One to Watch’ and BBC Music Magazine’s ‘Rising Star’, Ivana has been heard on the major concert platforms in the UK including The Wigmore Hall, Royal Albert Hall and Royal Festival Hall, as well as across Europe, in Canada, Japan and Russia. Following her US debut in October, the Washington Post described Ivana’s playing as ‘impressive, insightful… a ravishing performance’. Attracting considerable praise for her interpretations of Janacek’s music in particular, Ivana has curated festivals dedicated to the composer’s solo and chamber works.

In an intoxicating programme of musical story-telling, chamber choir Londinium charts a course through the fantastical world of fairy-tale, fable, myth and legend. The landscape through which we journey is peopled by a weird and wonderful cast of characters, amongst them Alice in Wonderland, Ariadne, the King of Thule, Orpheus, Bunyan's Pilgrim and Robin Hood. The fauna is no less remarkable: the Unicorn, Crocodile, Phoenix and Hydra are to be found alongside the Ant and the Grasshopper, all brought to life in a glorious selection of choral music spanning six centuries. Highlights include exquisite madrigals by Monteverdi, beautiful folksongs by Brahms, a remarkable cantata by Martinů and Vaughan Williams' 'Valiant-for-truth', alongside works by Josquin, Weelkes, Schumann, Gounod, H Garrett Phillips, David Del Tredici and Ola Gjeilo.
