MOZART Sonata in B flat, K.454
Lili BOULANGER D’un Matin du Printemps
BEETHOVEN Sonata in A, Op.47 ‘Kreutzer’
Jonathan Stone is, like Hélène Clément, familiar to NNMF audiences as part of the
Doric String Quartet. However, after many years with the Dorics he has decided to
explore new musical paths, as solo violinist, member of the Phoenix PianoTrio and guest
orchestral leader. Included in this programme we will hear a short impressionistic work by the prodigiously talented Lili Boulanger, younger sister of Nadia, who died at the tragically young age of 25. Beginning and ending the recital are Mozart’s mature B flat sonata and Beethoven’s monumental ‘Kreutzer’ sonata.

BRAHMS Sonata in F# Minor, Op.2
Clara SCHUMANN Romances
Robert SCHUMANN Phantasiestücke, Op.111 

Each year at NNMF Melvyn Tan can be relied upon to come up with a fabulous solo programme and this one is no exception. The complex feelings between Clara Schumann and Brahms are illustrated here by the fact that Brahms’ 2nd Sonata (Tim Horton plays the1st on Monday 12th) was dedicated to Clara, and Clara Schumann’s Romances Op.21 were dedicated to Brahms. Melvyn’s recent appearances include concerts with the Wiener Akademie Orchester in Vienna, the Australian Haydn Ensemble in Sydney and Canberra, Singapore’s re:Sound Collective, and recitals at the Meiringen Festival in Switzerland, the Hatfield House Festival and the London Piano Festival. “Miroirs”, his new disc of Liszt, Ravel and Scarlatti, is due for release in Spring 2019. 

TICKETS £25
This concert is supported by a longstanding Friend of the Festival

at Wigmore Hall. At the Pianale International Piano Competition in Germany he won the EuroRadio Youth Concert Prize, the senior jury prize, and was rewarded with a recital in Bayreuth in July 2018. He is currently studying at the Royal College of Music in London with Andrew Ball. 

The middle two works in Thomas’s ambitious programme are the thrilling 5th sonata by Scriabin and Busoni’s operatic fantasy inspired by a performance of Bizet’s Carmen that he heard in Paris.

THE GESUALDO SIX
Director OWAIN PARK

Gesualdo_Six
The Wishing Tree
from the roots of choral singing to the flowering of a tradition Works by Carlo GESUALDO, William BYRD, Hildegard von BINGEN, ThomasTALLIS, Arvo PÄRT and others.
The Gesualdo Six brings together six of the finest young consort singers in the country.The group gave their first performance under the direction of Owain Park in the chapel at Trinity College, Cambridge on Maundy Thursday 2014. Since then they have given performances throughout the UK and in Europe and in Canada. 

Performances in 2019 will take them to Slovenia, Switzerland and Germany as well as venues at home including Cadogan Hall. 

At first, their performances focused on early music but gradually they have extended their repertoire to include music from later centuries right up until today. The Consorts’ annual Composition Competition this year attracted a staggering 306 entries from around the world. 

Their first CD for Hyperion, English Motets, was described by Paul Riley writing in BBC Music Magazine in June 2018 as “a glorious treasure trove and an auspicious debut recording”. 

It has long been a desire of the Festival directors to have a choral programme that focused on music by the 16thcentury Italian genius
Prince Carlo Gesualdo. His music is known for its intensely expressive language not heard again until the late 19th century. 

TICKETS £25
