A Londinium Bestiary

Londinium
Andrew Griffiths, conductor

Ola Gjeilo: Unicornis Captivatur
Bernard Hughes: A Medieval Bestiary
Kenneth Leighton: Laudes Animantium

To open its 2018-19 season Londinium presents a thrilling programme of works on the theme of weird and wonderful creatures. Kenneth Leighton's unpublished 'Laudes Animantium' ('Praises of the Creatures') is a superb sequence of poems about animals, from Blake's Lamb and Tyger to Tennyson's Kraken, by way of Edward Lear and others, and finds its composer at the height of his powers. Ola Gjeilo's 'Unicornis Captivatur', based on remarkable fifteenth-century chants, introduces us to the unicorn, pelican, phoenix, hydra and crocodile. Finally, Bernard Hughes' 2011 'A Medieval Bestiary' explores the relationship between medieval man and the animal world. The dramatis personae, taken from a fourteenth-century source, include the manticore, parander, gryphon, monoceros, dragon, panther, and scorpion, and Hughes' music is no less inventive and exhilarating.

Yorkshire Dales English Music Festival

The third Yorkshire Dales English Music Festival builds on the success of previous events with an even more exciting programme. It will begin on Friday 5 October 2018 in the beautiful surroundings of St Andrew's Church, Aysgarth, with a combined concert and film showing. The EMF has collaborated with the Yorkshire Film Archive, commissioning three new films of archive material celebrating life, landscape, transport and work in the Yorkshire Dales; and we have set up a competition for top composition students to write music for these three films: the winning entries will be performed in this opening concert alongside the films that they describe.

Saturday 6 October will see a variety of recitals and concerts in St Andrew's, and on Sunday 7 the festival moves to Bolton Castle for several more concerts, including a violin-and-cello duo recital, performances of Howells' and Lambert's Clavichord, and a concert for violin and narrator, with new works written especially for the occasion by the composers Richard Blackford and Paul Lewis.

Wexford Festival Opera

Since the first 'Festival of Music and the Arts' took place in October 1951, Wexford Festival Opera has grown into one of the world's leading opera festivals. In 2017 Wexford Festival Opera won Best Opera Festival in the World at the 2017 International Opera Awards.

Right from the beginning, the Festival made a name for itself by introducing audiences to unjustly neglected works, many of which have since found a place in the canon. For 66 years the Festival has breathed new life into forgotten masterpieces, establishing a reputation for high-quality productions that, every year, bring thousands of opera-lovers flocking to Wexford from all over the world.
