Beverley & East Riding Early Music Festival 2016
Par : National Centre for Early Music
Friday 27 – Monday 30 May
Beverley & East Riding Early Music Festival spans seven centuries of European music with a series of concerts celebrating the Virgin Mary, "The Queen of Heaven", featuring music from Hildegard of Bingen to Mendelssohn. Guest artists include Florileguim (27 May), Elizabeth Kenny theorbo and Elin Manahan Thomas soprano, The Cardinall’s Musick (28 May), Fitzwilliam String Quartet (29 May) and The Flautadors Recorder Quartet (30 May).
Delma Tomlin, Festival Director says : "We are delighted to welcome a star studded range of guest artists and to support an ever burgeoning educational programme. Highlights include concerts by the Consone Quartet following a 10 day residency in York as part of the NCEM’s EEEmerging project funded by Creative Europe and Beverley Grammar School students who, with three feeder primaries and the help of players from the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, will create their own opera The Age Old Story based on Purcell’s ’Dido & Aeneas’. In addition, we are delighted to offer two contrasting workshops for amateur musicians – one for trio-sonata groups led by Florilegium’s Ashley Solomon and a choral workshop with Andrew Carwood, director of The Cardinall’s Musick. This year’s festival offers something for everyone to get involved and enjoy the music-making."
On the last night of the Festival, singers from the University of York Chamber Choir are joined by an array of period instruments played by professional guest musicians including Gawain Glenton cornetto and David Miller chitarrone in Monteverdi’s 1610 ’Vespers for the Virgin Mary’. Presented in the magnificent setting of Beverley Minster, it provides a superb and festive finale."
Indeed, the superb historic market town of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire has welcomed Early Music fans for more than a quarter of a century. Some of the world’s finest musicians enjoy performing in some of England’s historical architectural gems including the Georgian Courtroom, as featured in the BBC’s mini-series Death Comes to Pemberley and Beverley Minster, famed for the medieval musicians who grace the aisles of the church.
Festival Tickets : £5.00 to £25.00 are available from the NCEM at St Margaret’s Church, Walmgate, York YO1 9TL. Telephone : 01904 658338. Email : firstname.lastname@example.orgRetour haut de page
Saison 2015-2016 - Arques la Bataille
Par : Académie Bach
Les cabinets de curiosités de l’Académie Bach. Cette formule, propre à l’Académie Bach, enrichit les œuvres, lorsque la matière s’y prête, d’une présentation de leur structure de composition, de leur contexte historique ou de leur environnement artistique. Mieux comprendre ce que l’on découvre permet aussi de mieux l’apprécier. Entre la présentation et le spectacle, un moment d’échange autour d’un verre favorise les contacts.Retour haut de page
GREGYNOG FESTIVAL 2016 ! - United Kingdom, Wales
Par : Gregynog Festival
TOP OF THE MORNING AT GREGYNOG FESTIVAL 2016 : EIRE (16-26 June 2016)
Gregynog Festival is "top of the morning" for 2016 as Dr Rhian Davies celebrates 10 years as Artistic Director with a programme exploring the wealth of cultural connections between Ireland and Wales. From the 7th-century Irish Saint Melangell, who founded the beautiful shrine church at Pennant Melangell in north Montgomeryshire, to the prison camp at Fron- goch, near Bala, where 1,800 rebels including Michael Collins and Arthur Griffith were held following the Easter Rising of 1916, the 2016 Festival combines classical and traditional music with poetry, film, talks and exhibitions to bring a host of Celtic narratives alive.
Commenting on the season, Artistic Director Rhian Davies said : "This year’s Festival is particularly special for me as it’s ten years since I took on the role as Artistic Director. I am so proud that we have so many leading Irish musicians and historians, plus major international artists who specialise in performing Irish repertoire, travelling especially to Mid Wales to be with us. Folk music and the written and spoken word, all so characteristic of Irish culture, also feature prominently, and there is a strong programme of talks, including opportunities to learn more about the treasures of the National Museum of Ireland and Trinity College Dublin. The Emerald Isle and celebration are at the heart of this year’s programme and it promises to be quite a party."
This year’s musical line up, star-studded as ever, sees Jordi Savall and Hespèrion XXI with Martin Hayes, Mahan Esfahani, The Irish Consort, Ailish Tynan and Iain Burnside, The Fidelio Trio, Chamber Choir Ireland, Daniel Grimwood, Ensemble Nevermind, Finghin Collins, The Goodman Trio and Aoife Ní Bhríain all strolling down Gregynog’s green carpet. Repertoire ranges from medieval times to the 21st century and includes Carolan, Field, Balfe, Stanford, Moeran and Dennehy. The Golden Age, when major European composers such as Handel and Geminiani lived and worked in Dublin during the 18th century, is also remembered.Retour haut de page
