Schubertiade

Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir, Greg Morris (conductor), James Way (tenor)

Brahmsís Three Songs, opus 42, Stanfordís The Bluebird, Vaughan Williamsís Three Shakespeare Songs and Schubertís setting of Psalm 23.

During Franz Schubertís short lifetime, informal, unadvertised gatherings Ė known as Schubertiades Ė were frequently held in the apartments of wealthy patrons, showcasing the composerís more intimate works. These evenings quickly became popular in early-19th-century Vienna, were typically sponsored by friends or aficionados of Schubertís music, and also featured poetry readings, dancing, and other sociable pastimes. Many Schubertiades included the composerís participation, accompanying notable soloists, and eventually gatherings also took place outside Austriaís capital, as Schubertís fame spread.

CMLís first visit to St Georgeís, Bloomsbury, presents an intriguing, relaxed evening of a cappella and accompanied chamber works, including Brahmsís Three Songs, opus 42, Stanfordís The Bluebird, Vaughan Williamsís Three Shakespeare Songs and Schubertís sublime setting of Psalm 23.

Rapidly gaining a reputation as one of Londonís leading chamber choirs, Collegium Musicum of London will round off its 2017 season with this varied and accessible programme, under Greg Morrisís inspired musical direction.

Joining CML, fresh from his triumphant collaboration with the choir in last Aprilís St John Passion, at Temple Church, will be the exciting young tenor and former Britten-Pears Young Artist, James Way.

Born in Sussex, tenor James was winner of second prize Prize in the 62nd Kathleen Ferrier Awards at the Wigmore Hall. He was awarded the 2016 Simon Sandbach Award from Garsington Opera, and the Ďmost promising singerí award at the Dean and Chadlington Singing Competition.
