Elder conducts Brahms

Elisabeth Kulman, mezzo-soprano
Britten Sinfonia
Mark Elder, conductor

Finzi: The Fall of the Leaf
Mahler arr. Britten: What the Wild Flowers tell me
Mahler: Rückert-Lieder
Brahms: Symphony No 1

Brahms’s First Symphony, one of the greatest of all Romantic symphonies, was first performed with considerably smaller musical forces than we are used to hearing today. Sir Mark Elder conducts Britten Sinfonia in a performance that returns to the spirit of those early concerts and allows the details of Brahms’s extraordinary lyrical masterpiece to shine through.

To accompany the work, Elder has chosen Mahler’s sublime Rückert-Lieder, with mezzo Elisabeth Kulman, and Finzi’s soaring elegy for orchestra. Benjamin Britten’s arrangement of the second movement of Mahler’s Third Symphony completes the eloquent programme.

Another really outstanding saxophone-player and composer. 2017 has been a very good year for Julian, with tonight's group having performed under the Brit banner at Bremen's Jazzahead Festival and his first-ever Jazz Orchestra fulfilling a highly-successful Spring tour, including a sold-out night at Ronnie Scott's. He has also just completed a tour with the great US singer Diane Schuur in Italy where he is an extremely popular visitor.
Liam Noble is considered to be one of Britain's most significant pianists, a master of all styles, and the Calderazzo/Hayhurst rhythm section generates all the fire you would want.

Milton Babbitt (1916-2011): Philomel (1964)
Georg Friedrich Haas (b. 1953): Ein Schattenspiel (2004)
Simon Emmerson (b. 1950): Time Past IV (1985)

Borough New Music Series 3 event 2

This concert presents three generations – and three radically different aesthetic approaches – of major works for voice or piano with electronics. It opens with the now classic 'Philomel' by Milton Babbitt (1916-2011); an astonishing work for soprano and tape, which has left an indelible mark on 20th century electroacoustic music. This is followed by 'Ein Schattenspiel' by Georg Friedrich Haas (b. 1953) for piano and live processed electronics turns the piano into a microtonal echo chamber, in which the instrument interacts with strange, distorted delays of its own sound. The concert concludes with Simon Emmerson's (b. 1950) 'Time Past IV', which while utilising a similar method of delay and layering to Haas’ work, stretches the rate of unfolding, creating a much more languid and haunting soundworld.

The multi-lingual singer Georgia Mancio has risen through a veritable forest of singers to become one of the UK's most subtle and impressive artists, whether performing classic standards or songs from Italy, Spain and Portugal. Originally from Argentina, Guillermo has been described by Mark Murphy as "someone who rocked me with his amazing swinging versatility". For Georgia, who presented her co-written Songbook album with the legendary pianist Alan Broadbent all over Europe last Spring, this will be a contrast in style with the music of Cuba, Brazil and Chile to banish those early winter blues. Don't miss this, our London Jazz Festival show.
