Volante Strings

A Volante Strings concert brings together local professional musicians from all around this area of the 'Elgar Trail' and 'Three Choirs Festival'. Many have played in Suckley church before, for example in the 'Tiny Tunes' Concert or the Holmes Trio recital. We are delighted to now welcome Volante as a whole.

Suckley church has a fine acoustic that is well suited to hosting a concert like this, but, without running water it struggles to provide basic facilities.
With the help of this Volante concert and other generous folk we expect to be able to begin before Christmas making this fine building better equipped both as a church and as a useful multi-purpose space for the whole of this scattered rural community.

Martin Luther - Ein Neues Lied

Renaissance Singers, Choir
Gawain Glenton, conductor

Martin Luther (1483-1546) believed music should be central to faith, and that faith should be central to everyday life. The result was the promotion of a society in which music permeated all aspects of life. From humdrum daily rituals, to major landmarks and civic events: all were emphasised through music that was often communal.



This concert brings together household hymns, love songs (some serious, some comic), dancing and drinking songs to give a flavour of the range of music in Luther’s time. Our exploration of Luther will also extend to the influence he had on later German composers, showing his influence on the work of Pachelbel, Christoph Bernhard, Schütz and in particular on J.S. Bach's monumental 8-part Der Geist Hilft.

Cellissimo – A Quartet of Cellos

Lois Mattson, Cello
Kate Cowell, Cello
Ellen Scargill, Cello
Joanne Jefferis, Cello

Following their sell-out Debut at Music at Stow, Elmslie House is to host a hotly awaited sequel by the all-girl, all-cello ensemble Cellissimo, appearing here on Friday 3rd November.
Cellissimo are Lois Mattson, Kate Cowell, Ellen Scargill and Joanne Jefferis, four professionally trained cellists who play a wide range of orchestral and chamber music repertoire, but wanted to add a little more spice to their regular playing, by exploring this very special combination of instruments, as the four-cello ensemble produces the most wonderful lush textures across a beautifully wide and thrilling melodic range.

Their concert will explore a rich seam of wonderful music arranged for this beautiful instrument, with something for just about everyone – from Bach to Beatles.

Come journey on the Chattanooga Choo Choo as you’ve never heard it before, meet the Beatles’ Michele dressed in brand new colours, and journey down to the Spiritual Deep River, via a tango from Piazzolla and the formidable Bach Chaconne.

Salvatore Sciarrino (b. 1947): Due melodie per soprano e pianoforte (1978) 
Ben Smith (b. 1991): traces of oil (night music) (2017) [World premiere]
Kate Soper (b. 1981): Only the words themselves mean what they say (2010-11) [UK premiere]
Salvatore Sciarrino (b. 1947): ‘Ultime rose’ (from Vanitas) (1981)

Borough New Music Series 3 event 1

The opening recital of Series 3 presents premieres by Kate Soper (b. 1981) and Ben Smith (b. 1991), both of which explore language and meaning in various states of fragmentation, framed by two rarely performed chamber works by Salvatore Sciarrino (b. 1947). Inspired by poetry, Sciarrino sets two almost identical poems from a 17th century Italian source in his 'Due melodie per soprano e pianoforte', whereas Smith’s 'traces of oil (night music)' for solo cello draws upon the medieval Japanese 'Pillow Book' by Sei Shonagon. Soper’s 'Only the words themselves mean what they say' (setting words by Lydia Davies) for voice and flute creates a composite meta-instrument, demanding an intensely visceral display of virtuosity from both players.

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.

Pre-concert talk, 6.30pm
Sir Mark Elder discusses tonight’s programme (free to ticket holders)
