Missy Mazzoli composer portrait

ETHEL
Mivos Quartet
Marnie Breckenridge, soprano
Jody Redhage, cello and voice
Nathan Schram, viola

Versatile and dynamic, American composer Missy Mazzoli has been called 'Brooklyn’s post-millennial Mozart' (Time Out New York). Her work includes commissions from Carnegie Hall, the Kronos Quartet, the LA Phil, and the Whitney Museum of Art. This Portrait highlights Mazzoli’s diverse works for strings, from solo pieces for cello and violin to works such as Harp and Altar, a love song to the Brooklyn Bridge that fuses string quartet with pre-recorded electronics and the poetry of Hart Crane.

Rachmaninov: Vespers (All-Night Vigil)

Londinium, chamber choir
Andrew Griffiths, conductor

Rachmaninov: Vespers (All-Night Vigil)
Nystedt: O Crux

In celebration of the hundredth anniversary of its première, Londinium performs one of the greatest of all a cappella choral works: Rachmaninoff's magnificent 'All-Night Vigil'. This monumental setting, enveloping ancient Church Slavonic chant in music of unparalleled richness, was Rachmaninoff's last major work before leaving Russia. It also represents both the final flowering and greatest achievement of the Russian Orthodox tradition before its suppression after the October Revolution. We precede Rachmaninoff's work with Kurt Nystedt's haunting 'O Crux', performed in memory of its composer whose hundredth birthday would have fallen this year.

Soldiers' Tales

East London Music Group
Matthew Hardy, conductor

Stravinsky: The Soldier's Tale

On Thursday 12th February East London Music Group will present its first performance, a new adaptation of The Soldier’s Tale by Igor Stravinsky, at the Octagon, Queen Mary University of London.

The Soldier’s Tale is a witty and sardonic Faustian story of a young soldier who gives his violin to the Devil in exchange for untold wealth. This new adaptation, directed by Joseph Hardy, features recent graduates of Drama Studio London and London Contemporary Dance School, as well as some of the most outstanding young professional musicians in London.

In the first half of the concert, Stravinsky's great work becomes the inspiration for new 'tales' devised by QMUL drama students in collaboration with QMUL Music Scholars.


East London Music Group is a new organisation which exists to provide concerts in East London. The group is made up of some of the most talented young professional musicians and actors in London and plans to make a significant contribution to the artistic scene in the years ahead.
