Saturday 20 April 2013 Middleton Hall, Hull Campus, 19:45 Beethoven Kodály Howard Skempton Mozart

String Trio in C minor op 9 no 3 Adagio Winter Sunrise Divertimento for string trio in E flat K

This highly-acclaimed group brings a programme that opens with one of Beethoven’s powerful early trios and culminates in Mozart’s great Divertimento K 563, a late work that despite its title is a serious largescale composition in six movements. In between are two more recent attractive and contrasting short pieces. ...such a fine intense performance as this brings out [Mozart’s] mastery...the hushed intensity of the playing of the Adagio, beautifully sustained at its measured pace, bears witness to the mastery of the three players. Gramophone, March 2012 (review of Florin’s CD of the Mozart and Skempton works)

Drama 50 Anniversary Celebrations The Grand Inquisitor Tuesday 23 April, 19:30 From The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky Adapted by Marie Hélène Estienne Directed by Peter Brook With Bruce Myers Directed by one of Britain’s most celebrated theatre makers, this performance stages the passage from Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov that imagines Jesus returning during the Spanish Inquisition. “Brook’s production and Bruce Myers’s performance have an austere grandeur.” The Guardian “Myers, a veteran of Brook’s international company, combines the verbal dexterity of a John Gielgud with the humanistic depth of someone who has performed in (and been transformed by) such Brook landmarks as the The Mahabharata, The Man Who and The Conference of the Birds”.

An accident on a windy day leads Clara to local boy Fabrizio Narccelli, who is captivated by the American visitor. But this is a love story with a difference. There is something unusual about Clara, and Clara’s mother will do anything to keep her daughter’s secrets hidden. Combining the light of the Italian summer with the dark struggles of mental illness, Craig Lucas and Adam Guettel’s The Light in the Piazza is one of the stand-out musicals of the new millennium. In this production, music, dance, and puppetry welcome you to Florence in 1953. Explore the streets, linger in the squares, and look at the world through Clara’s eyes, as she tries to discover what it means to fall in love when everything about you is not quite as it seems.   Tickets: £8 / concessions £7 / students £4 Gulbenkian Box Office: Telephone bookings 01482 466607/01482 466141 Box Office Open: 12.30 – 13.30 Monday 29 April – Friday 3 May 2013

20th Century British Poets in Music, RMA Study Day Friday 28 June 2013 Hull Campus, 13:15 An interdisciplinary event, bringing together musicologists, literary scholars, postgraduate students and composers interested in the connections between poetry and music. Michael Tippett once wrote provocatively that one of the primal gifts of the song writer is the ability to destroy all the verbal music of the poetry or prose and to substitute the music of music. We aim to consider the transformation of referential words into musical sounds from a number of practical and theoretical perspectives, with a keynote lecture by Professor Stephen Banfield. This event is part of the ‘20th-c British Poets in Music’ festival.
