CELEBRATING 10 YEARS June 2014 represents a significant month for Cadogan Hall. It was in June 2004 that the hall first opened its doors to the nation's concert going public. That so much has happened in those 10 years is staggering.

Contents

Following the hall’s inaugural performance with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and guest soprano Dame Kiri te Kanawa, Cadogan Hall has presented over 2600 live concerts performed by tens of thousands of gifted artists and musicians to over 1.4 million concertgoers. Combined broadcasts, including the internationally renowned BBC Proms Chamber Music series, have allowed millions more people all over the world to enjoy and participate in live music with us.

August 27

Such figures would simply not be possible were it not for the continued and absolute support provided by so many of our orchestral partners, leading promoters, media partners and our audiences. Therefore, on behalf of all at Cadogan Hall and owners, Cadogan Estate, I would like to thank each and every one of you for enabling our vision and embarking with us on this most fantastic journey. We look forward to continuing this journey with you through many exciting years ahead. Adam McGinlay,
General Manager

TUESDAY 3 JUNE, 7.30PM

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Schubert Symphony No. 8 (Unfinished) Tchaikovsky Variations on a Rococo Theme Bizet Symphony in C Dimitri Maslennikov cello Alessandro Fabrizi conductor This programme boasts not one but two symphonies – and while Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 is famously incomplete, its two movements are full of memorable melodies and nuanced orchestral writing. Bizet’s Symphony in C opens with great energy and panache, and features a wistful Adagio, rustic Scherzo and effervescent Finale. In Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme, the cello and orchestra explore a theme inspired by one of the composer’s idols, Mozart. At the work’s premiere, even Liszt was impressed... This concert will be dedicated to a project of rare scientific quality entitled ‘Music and Neuroscience’.

Pinchas Zukerman – Summer Music Festival J.S. Bach Violin Concerto in A minor Schoenberg Verklärte Nacht Mozart Exsultate, jubilate Mendelssohn Symphony No. 4 (Italian) Pinchas Zukerman conductor/violin Arianna Zukerman soprano The illustrious violinist and conductor Pinchas Zukerman joins the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in what promises to be an exceptional series of concerts as part of a Summer Music Festival. In the opening concert, Zukerman performs J.S. Bach’s Violin Concerto in A minor. An exemplar of the Baroque concerto, the faultless melodic lines and perfectly balanced structure of the work are a given; what draws audiences to the work, however, is the yearning melancholy of the violin, which comes across in every bar of the concerto. Schoenberg’s string sextet Verklärte Nacht, his earliest major work, and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4 (Italian), conclude a programme spanning nearly two hundred years.

Dan Ludford-Thomas conductor Nico de Villiers piano/organ Nicholas Bootiman viola The atmospheric and lyrical Luminosity, in 7 movements for viola, organ, the Indian stringed tanpura and chorus, takes the listener through the 'transcendent beauty of creation', using all the forces to create moments of true stillness and overwhelming intensity. The 5 colourful movements of Vaughan Williams’ In Windsor Forest are lively and lyrical, while the melodic beauty of his Serenade to Music reduced Rachmaninoff to tears. McDowall’s Four Piano Solos, combine rhythmic vitality with atmospheric stillness, from the bustle of New York to an impressionistic soundscape of Venice. They received rapturous applause at their recent Polish premiere by our pianist, Nico de Villiers. TICKETS: £22, £20, £16, £14, £12

One of his last major works, first heard in Vienna in 1801, Haydn’s oratorio The Seasons built on the success of The Creation. Four cantatas describe the changing seasons from spring through to winter and the daily life of peasants in the composer’s Austrian homeland. From ploughing and sowing, tending the sheep and welcoming the summer sun, to hunting, harvesting and enjoying the fruits of the vine, Haydn celebrates the pastoral world and its Creator in music full of vitality and imagination. This performance will be sung in English.

France’s leading Baroque composer, whom some have called the ‘French Bach’, proved more progressive than Lully, more virtuosic than Couperin. This lunchtime Les Arts Florissants appears on an intimate scale, performing Rameau’s only chamber music – the lively and virtuosic Pièces de clavecin en concerts. With movements named after people, places and moods, each is a miniature character study, an evocative musical portrait.

When Mozart wrote, ‘Bach is the father, we the children’, he was referring not to J. S. Bach but C. P. E. Bach. Baroque violinist Rachel Podger is joined by musical friends in a programme to explore the weird and wonderful world of this fascinating musician. At its core is the extraordinary and unprecedented C minor Trio Sonata – an instrumental dialogue between a ‘sanguine’ man and a ‘melancholic’, in which each tries to persuade the other to change his mood.

Richard Strauss was just 20 when he composed his Suite – and steeped in the conservative musical traditions of his horn-player father, who revered Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven above all. It’s a legacy present here in the young Strauss’s music, but developed and transformed into something altogether more rich and strange. Clarinettist Michael Collins and his ensemble London Winds set Strauss and his favourite composer, Mozart, side by side, presenting their very different takes on the 18th-century ‘Harmonie’ ensemble of wind instruments, and revealing the early seeds of Strauss’s signature lyricism that would eventually flower in Der Rosenkavalier.

Here the group celebrates the 80th birthdays of two major British composers – Sir Harrison Birtwistle and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger is the soloist in Birtwistle’s Endless Parade, whose dark, maze-like landscape is matched by the languorous vistas of Honegger. The anniversary celebrations of C. P. E. Bach continue with the spiky, brooding textures of his Symphony in B minor.

Fantasie in C major, D934

Prior to her appearances at the Royal Albert Hall later this week and at the Last Night of the Proms, Dutch violinist Janine Jansen performs as a chamber musician alongside pianist Itamar Golan and violinist-turnedconductor Sakari Oramo. Although a familiar face on the podium, Oramo is only now making his Proms debut as a violinist. Two richly coloured works by Prokofiev contrast with the Fantasie for violin and piano in which Schubert leans towards the sublime, less than a year before his death.

Having joined Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé earlier this season for Elgar’s Sea Pictures, mezzo-soprano Alice Coote returns for a recital with pianist Julius Drake. Her programme of German songs includes Strauss’s Eight Poems from ‘Letzte Blätter’ – some of the very earliest and loveliest of the 200 or so songs he composed over his lifetime. Dedicated to his wife Pauline and a gift to her on their wedding day, the Op. 27 Lieder are also among Strauss’s most heartfelt. For Wolf, inspiration came more from literature: poems by the gentle pastoralist Mörike and the philosopher of emotion Goethe inspired him to some of his most expressive musical extremes.

Tim Gill cello Rebecca Bottone soprano London Sinfonietta Sian Edwards conductor There will be no interval

BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Louis Schwizgebel made his concerto debut at the Proms earlier this season and now returns for a programme of chamber music. He is joined by the Royal String Quartet for a concert that concludes with Richard Strauss’s extraordinary Metamorphosen – heard here in the string septet form in which Strauss originally drafted it, before he expanded it for an ensemble of 23 solo strings. Alongside it is a rarely heard curiosity – Mahler’s contemplative Piano Quartet movement, the tantalising torso of a work never completed.

Celebrating his 80th birthday this year and the subject of one of this season’s Proms Plus Composer Portraits, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies is one of the greats of contemporary British music. This programme chosen by the composer himself explores his wide-ranging sound-worlds, from the sleek and glittering chamber textures of A Mirror of Whitening Light (completed in 1977, shortly after his move to Orkney) to the confrontational music drama of Revelation and Fall. London Sinfonietta Principal Cellist Tim Gill is the soloist in Linguae ignis’s writhing plainchant melodies, and Sian Edwards returns to conduct, following her Proms Saturday Matinee appearance last year.

Along with fellow Lancastrian composer Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Sir Harrison Birtwistle celebrates his 80th birthday this year. The Proms marks the occasion with a concert from one of the UK’s leading new music ensembles, the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group. The group’s relationship with Birtwistle’s music is a long one, and here it performs three of the composer’s classic early works. Each explores the spatial dramatisation of music, playing aural games with the audience and exposing them to intriguing and unfamiliar textures, while never neglecting the ever-unfolding melody that is at the core of all Birtwistle’s music.

This year’s focus on William Walton wouldn’t be complete without his witty, genre-bending ‘entertainment’ Façade. Walton’s first big success, the work sets poems by his friend and patron Edith Sitwell to create a sequence of colourful, whimsical and piquant numbers for chamber ensemble and reciters. The whimsical side of Shostakovich is also represented, in his Four Waltzes. Arranged from the composer’s earlier film scores, they range from the good-humoured ‘Spring Waltz’, the faux naïf ‘Waltz-Scherzo’ and the charmingly kitsch ‘Barrel Organ Waltz’.

Waltz from ‘Faust’ Benjamin Grosvenor piano There will be no interval He may only just have turned 22, but pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is already a Proms regular. The British pianist returns for his first Proms Chamber Music concert, performing a mixed programme with a dance theme pulsing through it. He explores the waltz from the contrasting perspectives of Ravel and Liszt, exchanging bladed impressionism for dizzying virtuosity, while Mompou’s Paisajes transports us to Barcelona, offering an evocative vision of a city from which the composer had been distanced for many years. The contrast of nocturnal scurrying and warm radiance suggested the title for Judith Weir’s new commission, written specially for Grosvenor.
