A Solo Acoustic Evening with David Gray A quarter of a century after his recording career originally began, David Gray returns with a UK tour and new album ‘The Best Of’ which was released on 28 October 2016. David Gray captured the world’s attention with his breakout multi-platinum hit album White Ladder back in 1998. This was the first of three No.1 UK albums, producing many hit singles such as Babylon, Please Forgive Me & Sail Away and earning him both Brit and Grammy nominations. Gray continued to build on that success with albums Lost Songs, A New Day at Midnight, Life in Slow Motion, Draw The Line, Foundling and most recently Mutineers, and now Best Of (2016). A Solo Acoustic Evening with David Gray will deliver an intimate acoustic show with a living, breathing collection of music – every bit as dynamic and vital as the 25 year long career that David Gray has enjoyed so far.

The world-renowned Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge returns to Cadogan Hall for a Christmas evening of choral music.

David Gompper Sunburst (UK premiere) Brahms Violin Concerto Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4 Emmanuel Siffert conductor Wolfgang David violin Opening tonight’s concert is David Gompper’s short energetic composition Sunburst, which aims to depict stars formation through a set of symmetrical musical sequences and an explosive array of tonal colours. The fantastic Austrian violinist, Wolfgang David, continues the drama as he joins the Orchestra for Brahms’ Violin Concerto; a work of flawless craftsmanship that offers contrasting emotions, lyricism and sensitivity. Concluding the concert is Tchaikovsky’s magnificent Fourth Symphony; a symphony that is dominated by the opening ‘Fate’ motif, but closes with a jubilant finale that shows off the symphony orchestra at its best.

An Evening with Tom Paxton

Paris-Buenos Aires, Une Histoire D’Amour

With special guests Cathy and Marcy

Tom has had a music career spanning more than 50 years. The five decades have seen the recording of many enduring songs, and thousands of live performances around the world, as well as a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award in 2009.

Maria Martinova piano Cyril Garac violin with the special participation of John Standing

“We are all born singing Tom Paxton songs” (Nanci Griffith)

The remarkable duo Martinova – Garac comes to Cadogan Hall for the UK launch of their highly-anticipated album ParisBuenos Aires, une histoire d’amour. Formed in the biggest classical tradition, these two musicians have also established themselves as two of the most emblematic names on the contemporary tango scene. In this program they elegantly combine French impressionist and Argentinean tango music. Legendary British actor John Standing will join the duo, giving voice to poets from the two worlds. This will be a mysterious and exciting journey through the aesthetic complicity between two cities – Paris and Buenos Aires – where music and poetry blend to reveal the pulse of life in all its aspects.

“Tom’s songs are fine songs in anyone’s book” (Uncut)

Works by Debussy, Piazzolla, Troilo, Salgán, Verlaine, Baudelaire, Borges, Apollinaire…

Celebrated amongst his peers and audiences alike, he is one of the most highly regarded, loved, and best known folk singer/ songwriters of his generation. With timeless classics such as The Last Thing On My Mind, Bottle Of Wine and Ramblin’ Boy, he portrays through his songs and his famously generous nature a true desire for justice, and to bring people together. Tom Paxton is a joyful treat, a revered figure in folk music, and a voice of his generation.

Symphonic Soundscapes – The Music of Prokofiev and Sibelius Prokofiev Symphony No. 1 (Classical) Sibelius Violin Concerto Prokofiev Symphony No. 3

Haydn Cello Concerto No. 1 Haydn Symphony No. 45 (Farewell) Beethoven Symphony No. 8

Alexander Shelley conductor Chloë Hanslip violin

Trey Lee cello Christopher Warren-Green conductor

One of the most naturally gifted of all Russian composers, Sergei Prokofiev once described his musical personality as a mixture of ‘the classical, innovative, motoric, lyrical and grotesque’. Tonight the RPO performs two contrasting pieces and experience two different sides of his personality. Firstly beginning with his delightful Symphony No. 1, its classical and lyrical style combines Prokofiev’s distinctively strong harmonic and melodic style, which is in complete contrast to his bustling Symphony No. 3; full of energetic and vivacious rhythms.

Haydn famously claimed that he was so cut off by his long tenure at the Esterházy family’s estate in rural Hungary that he was ‘forced to become original’. The ‘Farewell’ Symphony was the composer’s subtle plea to his employer to let the orchestra return home to their families, and perhaps it was the sheer quality of the music that persuaded the Prince to release his orchestra. We find Haydn in far more upbeat mood in the First Cello Concerto.

In between the two symphonies we welcome outstanding British violinist Chloë Hanslip to perform Sibelius’ passionate Violin Concerto.

Tickets: £40, £32.50, £25, £15 ENCORE Members: £5 off top 3 prices Series and group discounts available

Unlike Haydn, Beethoven never tied himself to a single patron. His Eighth Symphony is one of his most delightful works, one that the great writer and polemicist George Bernard Shaw dared to declare ‘better than the Seventh’.

From Duke’s Take The ‘A’ Train to Dizzy Gillespie’s Manteca (a mix of Cuban rhythm and Manhattan magic) via Artie Shaw, Charlie Parker and many more. ‘Echoes of Ellington were in scintillating form and if the standing ovations were anything to go by the large audience also wants more of the same… and pretty soon too’ Arts and Culture Magazine ‘Gillespiana supplies a series of controlled detonations in which instrumental flair goes hand in hand with joie de vivre.’ The Times.

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Symphonic Soundscapes – The Music of Prokofiev and Sibelius Sibelius Symphony No. 1 Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 1 Sibelius Symphony No. 7 Alexander Shelley conductor Ning Feng violin Sibelius’ First Symphony opens the concert with a striking, brooding clarinet solo setting the scene for this melodic masterpiece. Beginning in an equally dramatic vein is Prokofiev’s First Violin Concerto, remarkable for its constraint and lyricism, the whole being coloured by a magical, fairytale quality. Sibelius’ tempestuous Symphony No. 7 provides a dramatic finish, its single movement full of swelling strings and noble brass, showing off the power and magnitude of the symphony orchestra. NB. Please note start time.

Ella Fitzgerald-centenary tribute to the great jazz diva

Part of Choral at Cadogan 2016-17

2017 marks the centenary of the original first lady of song. Award-winning jazz vocalist and Radio 2 presenter Clare Teal explores the many facets of Ella Fitzgerald – from her early days with Chick Webb at the height of the Swing Era, to her work in the 50s and 60s with Norman Granz celebrating the Great American Songwriters and culminating in surely the most treasured songbook series ever recorded.

With music by composers including Tomás Luis de Victoria, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, and Orlande de Lassus, this programme showcases some of the most beautiful and erotic of scriptural texts (the Song of Songs being essentially a love poem), set in a variety of styles.

Join Clare Teal and her mini big band (comprising the finest jazz musicians in the land) plus a special guest for this special celebration of Ella’s versatility – from small band to big band, from the warmth of her studio sessions to the joyful exuberance of Ella’s live performances. With favourite songs from the likes of Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Johnny Mercer and Irving Berlin including: Tisket A Tasket, I Get A Kick Out of You, Manhattan, Ev’rytime We Say Goodbye, Let’s Do It Let’s Fall In Love, I Only Have Eyes For You, I Won’t Dance, The Very Thought of You, It’s Only A Paper Moon and Mack The Knife.

The hotly anticipated rock event of the year returns, as Brit Floyd brings the music of Pink Floyd to life once again with its lavish new stage show. The spectacle of a Pink Floyd concert experience is truly recaptured in highdefinition sound, with a stunning light show and state of the art video design. As well as performing the favourite moments from The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, The Wall and The Division Bell, Brit Floyd will also pay special tribute to the Animals album, in its 40th anniversary year, with a showstopping rendition of Dogs, plus a host of other Pink Floyd musical gems. The Brit Floyd show has truly become a phenomenon, widely regarded as the world’s greatest live tribute to Pink Floyd. Faithfully recreating the scale and pomp of the final 1994 Division Bell tour, complete with circle screen and multiple moving light design, lasers, inflatables and theatrics, this really is as close as fans can get to experiencing the magnificence of a Pink Floyd show live.

Doris Day: Sentimental Journey Claudia Morris and the Hollywood String Orchestra

Beethoven Piano Trio No. 11 (Kakadu) Beethoven Triple Concerto Beethoven Symphony No. 4 Lorenza Borrani violin/director Luise Buchberger cello Kristian Bezuidenhout piano From early in his career, Beethoven made the piano trio very much his own. The youthful ‘Kakadu’ variations show his genius for taking a banal melody and sending it up with a sequence of brilliant variations. Beethoven took things a stage further when he set a piano trio against an orchestra in his Triple Concerto. Written a couple of years later, Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony finds him at his most delectably Haydnesque.

Robert Meadmore special guest Matthew Freeman conductor A special gala charity concert in aid of All Dogs Matter. In celebration of the music of the iconic and much-loved Doris Day and in recognition of her lifelong devotion to animal welfare. The programme will include many of the songs that made Doris Day famous: Move Over Darling, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps, Secret Love, It’s Magic, Que Sera Sera, I’ll Never Stop Loving You, Dream A Little Dream Of Me, and many more favourites. ‘Passion and clarity delivered with a velvet voice, Claudia lights up any stage’ (Sue Marchant, BBC Radio) ‘Claudia Morris captures the sophistication of Day’s delivery’ The Stage

The orchestra performs three concerts and brings with it three outstanding soloists and a varied repertoire of orchestral classics. Joining the orchestra for this evening’s concert is world-leading pianist Angela Hewitt performing Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto.

Stephen Brearley conductor Susana Gaspar soprano In its eighth concert for Freedom from Torture, The Doctors’ Orchestra is joined by the Portuguese soprano Susana Gaspar in a performance of Strauss’s much loved Four Last Songs. Completed in the 86th and last year of the composer’s life, these glorious songs express both the composer’s passion for the soprano voice and a mellow acceptance of life’s approaching end. Berlioz’s opera Beatrice and Benedict was also a late work but this time one crackling with wit, humour and vivacity. Rachmaninov’s first symphony, by contrast, was an early work whose disastrous first performance caused the composer to suffer a nervous breakdown but which has subsequently come to be recognised as a thrilling work of true genius.

ACCESSIBILITY Free companion / Assistance scheme Cadogan Hall has a range of services to assist disabled customers including provision for wheelchair users in the stalls. Customers in receipt of disability-related state benefits, and members of our Access Scheme, may be entitled to concessionary ticket prices for some events or a free companion seat. Please contact the Box Office for a form to register for Cadogan Hall’s Access Scheme. Wheelchair users If you use a wheelchair and wish to transfer to a seat, we regret we may not be able to provide a member of staff to help you physically. However, we will arrange for your wheelchair to be taken away and stored. A lift is located to the right once inside the Box Office reception allowing access to a lowered Box Office counter. Foyer areas are on the same level as the Box Office and the foyer bar (Oakley Room) is accessed via a wide access lift. Seats within the stalls are accessed via a wide lift as are adapted toilet facilities. The Gallery Please note the lift provides access to all levels except the gallery seating areas. Gallery seating can only be accessed via the main stairwell. When travelling to and from the gallery seating areas please allow sufficient time in order to be seated at an appropriate time. Customers with hearing requirements The auditorium is fitted with an infra-red amplification system. This is not the same as a Loop System so switching your hearing aid to ‘T’ is not sufficient. Please contact a member of staff on arrival to be given an amplification aid. 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.
