Harry Ogg conductor Oliver Johnston Rodolfo Sara Lian Owen Mimi Gareth Brynmor John (1st prize at Kathleen Ferrier 2013) Marcello Maud Millar Musetta Piran Legg Schaunard Chris Webb Customs House Sergeant

Bach composed his oratorio in six parts for performance in two Leipzig churches over the Christmas season of 1734. Parts 1 to 3 depict the birth of Jesus, the appearance of the angelic host and the adoration of the shepherds. The tenor soloist sings the words of St Luke’s gospel, aided by the choir as angels and shepherds, and the significance of the Nativity is explored in reflective arias and chorales. From the exultant trumpets and drums of the opening and closing movements to the serene Pastoral Sinfonia, the oratorio is enriched by Bach’s vivid orchestration. (Sung in German.)

TICKETS: £30, £25, £20, £16, £12

After an acclaimed sell-out performance of Hansel and Gretel at LSO St Luke’s in April 2013, Sinfonia d’Amici continues its tradition of giving one concert performance of an opera per season, with Puccini’s much loved classic. ‘Harry Ogg is a name to conjure and a talent to relish.’ ‘[the] orchestral account [was] a spectacle in itself, with the added thrill that comes with watching gifted young artists excel.’ Classical Source (Concert performance in Italian with English surtitles.)

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with Freddy Kempf

Ravel Le tombeau de Couperin Mozart Concerto for Two Pianos in E flat, K. 365 Dvorˇák Legends, Op. 59 Ravel Mother Goose Suite Behzod Abduraimov and Stanislav Ioudenitch pianos Andrew Litton conductor The delicate colours and nuances of Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin offer a gentle commemoration of the anniversary of World War One; Ravel had dedicated each movement in the original piano version to a friend who had died in the conflict. Behzod Abduraimov, first prizewinner of the London International Piano Competition and his teacher Stanislav Ioudenitch, gold medallist in the Van Cliburn Piano Competition play Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos and after a selection of Dvorˇák’s folksong-based Legends the orchestra returns to Ravel and enters the enchanted world of the Mother Goose Suite.

Beethoven Fidelio Overture Beethoven Triple Concerto Beethoven Symphony No. 7 Freddy Kempf conductor/piano Clio Gould violin Tim Gill cello A must for Beethoven devotees, this programme is directed by pianist and conductor Freddy Kempf, who also performs in the Triple Concerto alongside celebrated violinist Clio Gould and Principal Cellist Tim Gill. Beethoven’s exhilarating Fidelio Overture is a tour de force of orchestral virtuosity. Fidelio, his only opera, generated four overtures; after the three weighty Leonore overtures, Beethoven wanted to write something with a more adventurous spirit, and this joyous piece was the result. The programme culminates in the regal, Seventh Symphony, famous for its slow movement (used in the film The King’s Speech), which gradually builds from a soft opening into music of thrilling grandeur.
