Mozart: La clemenza di Tito

Vitellia's path to the throne is thwarted by the man who deposed her father, so she presses her admirer Sesto to murder him.

Sesto is caught in an agonising dilemma, for the man in question is not only his best friend but also his sovereign.

Driven by love, Sesto does his worst. But in return, receives a lesson in forgiveness.

Verdi: La traviata

Alfredo, a young man from the provinces, falls in love with Violetta, the stylish toast of Paris. But she’s not the marrying kind - at least not until now.

However, their dreams of domestic bliss are threatened by both a merciless society that condemns Violetta's racy past and an equally merciless disease.

Mosaic - London Myriad Ensemble

London Myriad Ensemble


Following a very successful concert in February, London Composers Forum takes pride and delight in joining forces for a second time with the London Myriad Ensemble, to present a concert at Lauderdale House, showcasing the music of the ten Forum composers who featured in the February concert.
Since its conception as a professional chamber group in 2004, the London Myriad Ensemble has performed regularly in the UK and internationally. As first prize International Competition winners in 2009, the ensemble performs a wide repertoire as a flexible ensemble with a wind quartet as its core which expands to quintet when required. ww.londonmyriad.com
With a keen interest in new music and in expanding the repertoire for woodwind chamber ensemble, the London Myriad Ensemble welcomes this second collaboration with London Composers Forum and the chance to explore the broad variety of exciting and accessible music which Forum composers have contributed.
The works in the programme range from jazz-inspired through to pastoral, humorous, festive and elegiac in character and present a fascinating cross-section of the creative mix that makes London Composers Forum a vibrant and dynamic focus for new music in the capital. This concert is supported by the RVW Trust.
London Composers Forum is open to all composers interested in composing contemporary classical music. New members are welcomed regularly.
