London Chamber Orchestra Cherubini Overture to Médée Beethoven Violin Concerto Mendelssohn Symphony No. 4 (Italian)

MARCH

Benjamin Beilman violin Riccardo Minasi conductor LCO welcomes Rome-born period performance specialist Riccardo Minasi, who makes his debut with a London orchestra to conduct Mendelssohn’s Italian, a symphony infused with the light, energy and passion of the Mediterranean. Mendelssohn was an early champion of Beethoven’s majestic Violin Concerto. Performing the virtuoso’s solo role is the gifted young American Benjamin Beilman, whose ‘handsome technique, burnished sound, and quiet confidence’ was recently hailed by the New York Times. The concert opens with the vivid Overture to Médée by Cherubini – the only composer whose talents Beethoven thought matched his own – setting the scene for the tragic, bloody tale.

Tickets: £35, £25, £17.50, £10

Southbank Sinfonia Family Concert

Imperial College Symphony Orchestra

Southbank Sinfonia Rebecca Miller conductor

Parry Blest Pair of Sirens Glière Horn Concerto Stravinsky Petrushka

One day, in the blink of an eye, the world of music was changed forever. By day, Beethoven was just an ordinary – albeit rather grumpy – guy. By night though, his incredible imagination blew wide open what was thought possible… and symphonies never sounded the same again. Join Southbank Sinfonia for a thrilling symphonic adventure. On the way we’ll encounter titanic battles and incredible powers, all hidden within Beethoven’s heroic Eroica Symphony. With 34 electrifying young players as your guides, you can also expect dramatic lighting effects and big screen projections that help to take you right inside the orchestra and the music being played.

Imperial College Symphony Orchestra Imperial College Choir Thomas Hardye Singers Richard Dickins conductor Regarded as one of the UK’s finest University Orchestras, Imperial College Symphony Orchestra makes a welcome return to Cadogan Hall to perform one of Stravinsky’s most popular scores – Petrushka. Before the interval it is joined by ex-Philharmonia Orchestra horn player (and Imperial alumnus) Mark Almond for Glière’s heroic Horn Concerto, and the concert opens with Parry’s Blest Pair of Sirens with the massed voices of Imperial College Choir and the Thomas Hardye Singers.

After the concert you can meet the musicians and discover your own inner-hero as you try out some of their instruments in Cadogan Hall’s foyer. Ideal for children aged 5 – 11. Tickets: children: £6.50; adults: £10

The Doctors’ Orchestra

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

A fundraising concert in aid of Freedom from Torture Wagner Overture to Tannhaüser Tchaikovsky Variations on a Rococo Theme Brahms Symphony No. 3 Gemma Rosefield cello Stephen Brearley conductor For its seventh concert in support of Freedom from Torture, The Doctors’ Orchestra plays an uncompromisingly romantic programme featuring romanticism’s three central composers. Brahms’ passionate Third Symphony is thought by many to have sprung from his probably undeclared and certainly unfulfilled love for Clara Schumann while the question ‘What is love?’ is at the heart of Wagner’s opera Tannhaüser. The Orchestra is joined by the brilliant cellist Gemma Rosefield for Tchaikovsky’s charming but virtuosic Rococo Variations.

Glinka Ruslan and Lyudmila Overture Sibelius Violin Concerto Barber Adagio for Strings Beethoven Symphony No. 7 Eduardo Portal conductor Matthew Trusler violin In no other violin concerto is the soloist’s first note, so delicately dissonant and offbeat, more beautiful, than in Sibelius’ Violin Concerto. Performed by one of Britain’s leading violinists, Matthew Trusler, this piece demonstrates Sibelius’ passion for the violin and complete understanding of the sound of the instrument. Led by Spanish maestro Eduardo Portal, the Orchestra opens the concert with the lively overture to Glinka’s Ruslan and Lyudmila. Barber’s Adagio for Strings has been described as the American anthem of mourning, having been played at notable figure’s funerals. Closing the concert is Beethoven’s stirring Symphony No. 7, a wonderful blend of orchestral gravitas and swelling tunes, recently used to great effect in the film The King’s Speech. 6.15pm: RPO Preludes Beethoven’s Septet

Handel Messiah

From Paris to New York Handel Messiah The Van Swieten Band Charlotte Beament soprano Anna Harvey mezzo-soprano Jeremy Budd tenor William Gaunt bass Jonathan Williams conductor Ealing Choral Society and the Van Swieten Band, conducted by Jonathan Williams present Handel’s Messiah – one of the best-loved works of the choral repertoire. First performed during Eastertide in 1742, and written over a period of just 24 days, it explores the coming of the Messiah, Christ’s Passion, Resurrection and Ascension into heaven. At the end of his manuscript Handel wrote the letters ‘SDG’ (Soli Deo Gloria) meaning ‘To God Alone the Glory’. This inscription, together with the speed of the composition, has encouraged belief that Handel wrote the music in a fervour of divine inspiration. Ealing Choral Society and the Van Swieten Band are delighted to return to the Hall for a performance of this jubilant work. Tickets: £24, £17, £10

Joined by Alexandra Soumm, ’who delivers playing of astonishing power from a slight frame in a way that seems to defy nature,’ the Orchestra performs Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 1. Finishing the concert is a delightful selection from the father of the Broadway stage, Cole Porter. 6.15pm: RPO Preludes A flute and harp recital Tickets: £40, £32.50, £25, £15 ENCORE Members: £5 off top 3 prices RPO Preludes: £10

The critically acclaimed pianist Eleonora Bekova returns to Cadogan Hall with the Philharmonia Orchestra under the baton of the gifted young conductor Marius Stravinsky in a unique programme of Russian 20th-century music which combines much-loved classics and hidden gems. Lyadov’s Baba-Yaga opens the concert. It is followed by the UK premiere of Sergey Zhukov’s quietly intense and meditative Piano Concerto Silentium, which was composed especially for Bekova. The evening receives a fitting finale with Prokofiev’s much-loved Fifth Symphony composed in 1944. ‘Eleonora Bekova is fantastic. She balances emotion, intellect and style and her touch transforms the piano into an instrument that sings like a human voice.’ Martha Argerich

Inspired by the events of the Kristallnacht, Tippett’s secular oratorio A Child of Our Time is brought to life by a stellar cast of young soloists and the combined forces of Woking Choral Society and outstanding chamber choir Vox Cordis. OSP’s leader Francesca Barritt is the soloist in music from the 1993 Steven Spielberg film Schindler’s List, and the evening opens with Ben Palmer’s exciting new choral work, a setting of Czeslaw Milosz’s poem Campo dei Fiori, which juxtaposes the burning of Giordano Bruno in Rome in 1600 and the poet’s experience of the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943.

With its hints of opera writing intertwined with beautifully crafted solo arias, the work is neither small nor solemn, nor particularly liturgical. Scored for two pianos and a harmonium, it has become a core member of the choral repertoire and is popular amongst choirs and audience alike. Join one of London’s leading amateur choruses for a vibrant performance of this glorious work.

Alison Balsom trumpet Tom Poster piano Daisuke Muranaka conductor Tonight’s concert juxtaposes sparkling Russian melody with brilliant Germanic classicism.

Lucy Crowe soprano Christopher Warren-Green conductor LCO brings its trademark energy to Beethoven’s ground-breaking Eroica Symphony. Originally a tribute to Napoleon, Beethoven angrily scratched out the titlepage dedication on learning the Frenchman had crowned himself Emperor. Napoleon loved opera, describing The Marriage of Figaro as ‘the Revolution in action’.

This sublime, muted work is strongly associated with the 1967 film Elvira Madigan. In Haydn’s well-known Paukenmesse, or Mass in Time of War, the insistent and foreboding timpani reflect the troubled time of war in Austria, and underscore an otherwise spirited and sacred choral score. 6.45pm: RPO Preludes Meet the Musicians FREE

An all-Mozart first half opens with the exhilarating, celebratory Haffner Symphony before Austrian pianist Till Fellner takes to the piano for his iconic compatriot’s Piano Concerto No. 22. Closing the concert is Bizet’s Symphony in C, a vibrant showpiece demanding the type of virtuosic playing and shimmering string sound that made the Academy’s name.

Valery Gergiev conductor Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra return to Cadogan Hall with a concert performance of Prokofiev’s glorious ballet Romeo and Juliet, in joint celebration of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare and the 125th anniversary of Sergei Prokofiev in 2016. One of the world’s best-loved ballets, Romeo and Juliet is inextricably linked with the Mariinsky company which, under its Soviet name Kirov, gave the Russian premiere in 1940. The original production, overseen by the composer, is still performed. Bursting with memorable scenes and ravishing melodies, Prokofiev vividly depicts the whole cast of Shakespeare’s characters from the innocent young Juliet and the proud, haughty Capulets to the bustling market scenes where youthful high jinx suddenly turn into deadly combat. Mariinsky UK tour supported by BP

Since then I also asked him to write a set of Lamentations, which will be receiving its world premiere tonight. In addition, Nico Muhly’s Lamentations were commissioned by the Lincoln Center in New York for us – so there is a small tradition going there. The Tallis and Phinot Lamentations further amplify this penitential mood. Cornysh’s astonishing, wonderfully florid Magnificat closes the programme. Peter Phillips

Direct from duties at Buckingham Palace, the Bands of the Coldstream & Grenadier Guards join together for the first time at Cadogan Hall. Celebrating this most important of English days, these two fine English regiments, perform alongside trumpet soloist Philip Cobb. Continuing 360 years of Regimental rivalry, you will be taken on a journey through Old England and treated to the unique sound of Pomp and Ceremony from two of the most world-renowned military bands.

Led by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Principal Associate Conductor, Alexander Shelley, the Orchestra explores Debussy’s unique musical language in his Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune before closing with Ravel’s delicate and subtle Le tombeau de Couperin, which is poignantly tinged with the sadness of World War I.

Jommelli: Il Vologeso

Duncan Galloway bandleader

Orchestra of Classical Opera Rachel Kelly mezzo-soprano Stuart Jackson tenor Gemma Lois Summerfield soprano Ian Page conductor

Hot dance music from the 1920’s and 1930’s.

Classical Opera and Ian Page continue their ground-breaking MOZART 250 series with the UK premiere of Niccolò Jommelli’s Il Vologeso, which was first performed 250 years ago on 11 February 1766 at the exquisite Schlosstheater in Ludwigsburg. Jommelli (1714-1774) was one of the most celebrated opera composers of his day, particularly renowned for the dramatic intensity and emotional realism of his music, and the young Mozart held him in high regard.

The UK’s premier 1920s and 1930s dance band recorded their 40th anniversary concert at Cadogan Hall which has been aired frequently on Sky Arts TV to popular acclaim. The concert includes some of the hot tunes played by both Fletcher Henderson and Duke Ellington and orchestra, masterpieces from some of the great composers of the American Song Book, such as Irving Berlin and George Gershwin, as well as some of the greatest tunes from the British dance bands of the 1920s and 1930s. All this is presented with the Orchestra’s inimitable style and panache, together with a good dose of British humour.

Classical Opera has assembled an outstanding cast, comprising some of the most exciting young British artists, for this important and eagerly awaited event.

As one member of the audience put it: ‘Pure quality, great fun, extraordinary music, played by some of the finest musicians on the scene.’

Rita Coolidge

Catel Overture to Sémiramis Haydn Symphony No. 100 (Military) Cheryl Frances-Hoad New work (world premiere) Beethoven Egmont Overture

Music icon Rita Coolidge has won two Grammy® Awards. Her song-styling crosses three genres, rock, pop and jazz, over more than a dozen albums, including 1978’s multiplatinum Anytime... Anywhere. An influential force amid the iconic music that built the pop/rock universe, several of her singles have become classics; We’re All Alone, Higher And Higher and The Way You Do The Things You Do as well as hit collaborations with Kris Kristofferson.

Christopher Warren-Green conductor The final concert of the season features a world premiere in which LCO is joined by participants from Music Junction, the orchestra’s groundbreaking community and outreach programme. Beethoven’s Overture was written for a play by Goethe commemorating the heroic deeds of Count Egmont in his struggle against tyranny; and it’s easy to hear how Haydn’s Military Symphony got its nickname, its second movement evoking, according to one reviewer, ‘the hellish roar of war’. We begin with a real rarity – an overture by Beethoven’s contemporary, Charles-Simon Catel, a popular figure in his time and the go-to composer when rousing military music was needed for state ceremonies.

2016 is a year of new projects and milestones as Rita releases her memoir in April and a new album in the summer. ‘Smokey voice and soulful…’ Jim Fusilli, Wall Street Journal ‘To me Rita Coolidge is a sound, that marvellous, kind of smoky, husky but pure sound and yes she has the hits…’ David Finkle, Village Voice

Borodin Prince Igor Overture Rachmaninov Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5

Returning to Cadogan Hall after it sold out in 2013 this show encompasses the history of jazz from its beginnings in Ragtime through to the present day. The six multi-instrumental jazz virtuosi present a highly entertaining journey through the decades taking in everything from New Orleans to Be Bop, Swing to Latin, Hot to Cool, from Chicago and New York to around the world. An A to Z of jazz’s biggest names from Louis Armstrong to Joe Zawinul interspersed with fascinating and humorous stories from the music’s history. It is, quite simply, one of the most daring and brilliantly executed evenings of jazz entertainment doing the rounds today. Jazz Journal

Fabien Gabel conductor Alexandra Dariescu piano Led by distinguished conductor Fabien Gabel, the RPO performs a sparkling programme of Russian gems, including the Overture to Borodin’s Prince Igor opera and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5. Alexandra Dariescu will impress with Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody based on Paganini’s Caprice No. 24 for solo violin. This muchloved work adds depth and dynamic energy to Paganini’s original work and will be electric on the Cadogan Hall stage. What began as one of Tchaikovsky’s most difficult works to compose subsequently became one of his most well-known, as we hear his masterpiece, Symphony No. 5. 6.15pm: RPO Preludes A performance of Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence.

Together, they recreate timeless trio compositions starting with Joaquin Turina’s Fantasia, a passionate Spanish composition, whose tone is then contrasted by tender, concludes romantic Brahms’ Piano Trio. The concert peaks with Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2, the genius of raw emotion. ‘His (Borisoglebsky’s) technique is top class with a sharpness which is unique. What impresses the most is his ability to play softly and still maintain elegance and focus.’ Magnus Hagland, Göteborgs Posten

Customers with sight impairment Guide dogs are welcome to access the hall and auditorium but please do let us know prior to arriving at the hall so we may make any special arrangements if necessary. We produce CD versions of this brochure. To request a free copy please call the Box Office and ask to be added to our regular lists. ‘Touch / Familiarisation’ tours can be arranged and we have unisex accessible toilets on all levels except the Gallery.
