Puccini: Madama Butterfly

When young Japanese girl Cio-Cio San marries American lieutenant B F Pinkerton, she is convinced that it is true love. Therefore she does not worry when he leaves Japan to return to America because, naturally, he will return to her.

But to Pinkerton, his Japanese marriage was merely a way to pass the time, and he realizes too late that playing with a young, impressionable heart can have dire consequences.

Lars Kaalund's romantic, critically acclaimed interpretation of Puccini's tragic drama is a tribute to Cio-Cio San, who insists on waiting for her beloved and continues to believe in her love, even when everything looks hopeless. The set designer, Christian Friedländer, and the artist and costume designer Pernille Egeskov have created an aesthetically beautiful and simple setting, mirroring the Western world's dream of the Far East with sweeping silk kimonos inspired by Hokusai's woodcut The Great Wave off Kanagawa.

The Casimir Connection

Saxophonist and composer Diane McLoughlin's new ensemble explores the boundaries between classical, folk and jazz. Featuring saxophone, violin, double bass and piano, the music allows space to explore sound and silence. This creates intensity and intimacy, echoing chamber music of the classical tradition. Quiet and brooding, serene and uplifting, with influences from Keith Jarrett to Poulenc, Bartok and Balkan folk music, The Casimir Connection is a jazz chamber group for the modern era.

'McLoughlin can mix a keening tone with a melodic sweetness' - Andy Robson (Jazzwise magazine)
'Benet McLean is both a sensitive group player and gifted soloist. His improvisations are vibrant percussive flashes of colour, full of trills and slurs, concise and witty' - Peter Marsh (BBB Jazz Review)

Cracovia Music Festival

The former capital of Poland is one of Europe's last undiscovered destinations by mass tourism. Here the Holy Father Pope John Paul II served as a Bishop for more than twelve years. The centre of the old town is Rynek, one of Europe's most beautiful and largest market places, divided by huge cloth halls as well as the gothic St Mary's Basilica. At the south edge of the old town rises the Wawelburg with the famous King's castle. In these historic surroundings, in the renowned churches of Krakow as well as in the concert hall with its appealing acoustics, the concerts of the Cracovia Music Festival take place.

Free Concert - no booking needed
Members of The Meritus Collective

Members of The Meritus Collective

Mozart, arranged Hummel for flute, violin, cello and piano: Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor, K 466

Free Lunchtime Concerts

The recital ends at about 2pm.
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 mostly trained at the major conservatoires in Britain and between them have performed in chamber groups all around the world and orchestras including the London Symphony and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras.
Meritus was the pseudonym of Felix Mendelssohn given to the young composer by Robert Schumann. It translates roughly as 'happy through merit' which is an inspiring yet 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 course of the year.
The recital will take place in the Long Gallery, using our newly- refurbished 9ft Erard kindly provided by Markson Pianos, one of the most respected piano specialists in Great Britain www.marksonpianos.com
