Lakeside is delighted to announce the appointment of our new artist-inresidence Hui-Chen (Annie) Lin who will be working in the studio at the DH Lawrence Pavilion for a 12-month period until November 2009. Annie received her initial training in Taiwan where she learned traditional forms of eastern painting which she has subsequently translated into a contemporary idiom during studies undertaken for her MA and Professional Doctorate in Fine Art at University of East London. Apart from her own studio practice, Annie will be engaged in various public activities at Lakeside and we look forward to inviting you to meet her and see her work in the forthcoming programme.
DJANOGLY ART GALLERY
FRIDAY 14 NOVEMBER SUNDAY 18 JANUARY 2009 DJANOGLY ART GALLERY ADMISSION FREE
FIGURING LIGHT COLOUR AND THE INTANGIBLE Figuring Light brings together four artists Duncan Bullen, Jane Bustin, Rebecca Partridge, and Richard Kenton Webb - who are each making a distinctive contribution to the study of colour.
Looking beyond the physical, optical, psychological, or philosophical properties of colour, their works consider its continuing mystery. Like the refracted colours of the prism they point to the insubstantial and invisible, giving physical form and expression to that which lies beyond the boundaries of sensory perception. The mysterious forms of Richard Kenton Webb’s intense paintings and delicate plaster sculptures suggest the distinctive quality and ‘movement’ he associates with the colour red, whilst Rebecca Partridge’s dynamic canvases offer an intensely coloured realisation of an inner synaesthetic experience. In contrast the quiet intensity of Duncan Bullen’s drawings and Jane Bustin’s paintings draws the viewer in to be mesmerised by their luminous atmospheres. These works propose new ways of seeing the world and understanding reality, allowing colour to be a figuring of light; a representation of the intangible. Figuring Light has been curated for the Djanogly Art Gallery by Dr. Richard Davey, Visiting Fellow School of Art and Design, Nottingham Trent University
LECTURES THURSDAY 13 NOVEMBER 6.30-7.30PM (FOLLOWED BY PRIVATE VIEW) DJANOGLY ART GALLERY LECTURE THEATRE ADMISSION FREE An illustrated introduction to Figuring Light by the exhibitionâ€™s curator Dr. Richard Davey

THE AMERICAN SCENE PRINTS FROM HOPPER TO POLLOCK A BRITISH MUSEUM TOUR Featuring over eighty works by sixty artists, the exhibition includes prints by Edward Hopper, Louise Bourgeois, Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock. The prints have been carefully selected from the collection of the British Museum to show the various episodes in American printmaking as well as providing a visually stunning pictorial anthology. Opening with the social realism of the Ashcan School in the first decade of the last century, the exhibition encompasses the arrival of modernism following the landmark Armory Show of 1913 and the rise of the skyscrapers as the symbol of modern progress and prosperity. The optimism of the Jazz Age was followed by the Depression when printmaking was encouraged through the Federal Art Project which provided relief to unemployed artists.
SATURDAY 28 FEBRUARY SUNDAY 19 APRIL DJANOGLY ART GALLERY ADMISSION FREE The American Scene: Prints from Hopper to Pollock features spectacular images of American society and culture made during a period of great social and political change from the early 1900s to 1960 and charts the emergence of a consciously American subject matter and artistic identity in the twentieth century.
The political engagement of artists with the rise of Fascism in Europe in the 1930s and the response to America’s entry into the Second World War after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, are vividly expressed in a number of the prints. The influx of émigrés from Europe, such as the influential Bauhaus artist Josef Albers, had a significant impact on post-war developments in American art. The exhibition concludes with abstract expressionism, the first major international art movement generated in the United States. The exhibition is supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art.

WINDOWS ON WAR SOVIET POSTERS 1943-1945 FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM’S MANUSCRIPTS AND SPECIAL COLLECTIONS Russia is under attack: all are called to bolster the war effort, even artists and poets. They created an extraordinary set of posters. Some were handmade (called ‘windows’), while some were printed, with cartoons or sentimental images, and biting or emotive captions. The posters were responses to the war news channelled by the Soviet Telegraphic Agency (TASS) which sponsored the painters and writers. The Windows were stencilled in hundreds, while the printed posters had runs of thousands. Their life was short, their relevance brief, but their impact vivid. Relatively few of the original 1250 Windows survive but an exceptional collection of 129 posters is held by The University of Nottingham, within the research holdings of Manuscripts and Special Collections. The original posters are now fragile, requiring special preservation conditions, but their colours still vibrant: digital reproduction techniques have made possible this rare exhibition, the first from the University collection.

The Waldstein Ensemble was founded in 2008 by Gerhard Schulz and Isabel Charisius who were members of the world famous Alban Berg String Quartet, along with Bulgarian cellist Lilia Schulz-Bayrova and Israeli pianist Noam Greenberg. Reger wrote his String Trio in A minor in 1904 in homage to the rococo elegance of Mozart’s music. Although an early work, there is an emotional intensity to Fauré’s First Piano Quartet. Dvorák completed his second piano quartet a week before starting on the Eighth Symphony. The grand sweeping gestures and changes of mood are at times symphonic in conception and it remains one of his most popular chamber works. v
The concert finishes at approximately 9.25pm
The concert opens with Haydn’s sparkling String Quartet in C, Op.74/1, one of six quartets dedicated to the Hungarian aristocrat Count Apponyi that were nonetheless intended for public concert and first performed in the 1794 London season. Erwin Schulhoff’s String Quartet No.1 was written in 1924 and draws inspiration from Czech and Slovak folk music and rhythms. Completing the programme, Beethoven’s second ‘Razumovsky’ Quartet is dramatic and profoundly moving. The concert finishes at approximately 9.10pm

MORGAN SZYMANSKI & O DUO Morgan Szymanski, guitar Oliver Cox, percussion Owen Gunnell, percussion Since making an outstandingly successful debut as a trio in Lucerne, O Duo and Morgan Szymanski have gone on to record and give concerts in the UK, Paris and Spain. Their programmes include some show-stopping arrangements of music by Latin American composers from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Venezuela and others, making for a wonderfully invigorating evening of sheer colour, rhythm, wit and dazzling virtuosity. Tonight’s concert features music by Piazzolla, Bellinati and Machado amongst others and the world premiere of a new work especially written for them by Stephen McNeff called Los Ambulantes. These are the street people of Mexico City who move through the traffic like jugglers and acrobats. O Duo also performs music by Chopin and Minoru Miki’s mesmerizing Marimba Spiritual and Morgan performs music by Agustin Barrios Mangore. The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm

Internationally, Tiberghien's career rapidly came to prominence when he won the 1998 Long-Thibaud Competition in Paris and since then he has performed in the great concert halls in Europe and America, with an impressive line up of international orchestras and conductors. He has made acclaimed recordings of Brahms, Chopin and Debussy and is known particularly for his interpretations of the Romantic repertoire. Liszt’s La Vallée d’Obermann is the longest piece in the Années de Pèlerinage collection and is the most emotionally intense, its initial melancholy transforming through pensive contemplation to reach a dramatic climax. In the second half of the concert Tiberghien explores Bartók and Brahms’s contrasting approaches to Hungarian folk music. The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm

RED PRIEST PIRATES OF THE BAROQUE
ZEMLINSKY Humoresque REICHA Wind Quintet in E flat, Op.88 No.2 ARNOLD Divertimento for flute, oboe and clarinet Gilbert VINTER Two Miniatures MILHAUD 'La Cheminée du Roi René' LIGETI Six Bagatelles HINDEMITH Kleine Kammermusik
Piers Adams, recorders Julia Bishop, violin Angela East, cello Howard Beach, harpsichord
A varied and exciting programme of predominantly 20thcentury music for wind instruments. With the exception of Anton Reicha, a Classical composer and good friend of Beethoven, this whole programme explores the array of styles, moods and musical ideas that dominated the 20th century, from the lyrical nature of Milhaud’s La Cheminée du Roi Réné to the neo-Classical music of Hindemith. As well as the musical giants Ligeti and Arnold, known widely for their film music (Ligeti famously for the soundtrack to Kubrick’s 2001: Space Odyssey) as well as being important composers in their own right, this is a chance to hear musical gems by the lesser known Gilbert Vinter and Alexander von Zemlinsky. The concert finishes at approximately 9.05pm
Stolen masterworks and long-lost jewels of the baroque era performed with swashbuckling virtuosity. Red Priest returns with a programme that explores one of the most colourful periods in music history. The leading musicians from the Baroque era were pioneers and adventurers, riding the seas of change with wild abandon, ever searching for new musical treasures to titillate the ears and move the souls of the public. Red Priest explores musical piracy amongst baroque composers including Vivaldi, Albinoni, Tartini, Handel, Bach and Leclair, as well as the less well-known Simonetti and Giazotto. ‘The UK's most dynamic, theatrical and outrageously different baroque ensemble…Red Priest has the fire, technical ability and sheer daring to bring it off…brilliant and inspired musicianship.’ Gramophone The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm

KOSHKA RUSSIAN WINTER & GYPSY FIRE Oleg Ponomarev, violin Lev Atlas, violin Nigel Clark, guitar Breathtaking Gypsy trio Koshka brings a seasonal flavour from Russia this December. Vibrant, enthralling Gypsy music, played with outrageous bravura, and more than a touch of wit and innovation, interspersed with tale and anecdote to give an insight into the traditions of winter and Christmas in Russia. ‘The chemistry between the performers creates a mesmerizing mix of virtuosity, playfulness & emotional intensity which should not be missed. See them while you can!’ Celtic Connections ‘Their playing is dazzling. This is real virtuosity and I silently vow never to use the word again for playing of less than this sheer, jaw-droppingly high calibre’ Hi-Arts Review 2008
The cutting-edge trio comprising British-born saxophonist Julian Argüelles and New York rhythm section Michael Formanek and Tom Rainey was formed in 2004, and has since toured the UK and USA. Julian Argüelles has played with leading musicians including Hermeto Pascoal, Dave Holland, Django Bates and Kenny Wheeler and is highly regarded as a composer and improviser. The Trio’s CD ‘Partita’ recorded in New York, featuring Julian’s original compositions, received an enthusiastic reception when released in 2006. ‘This is very sophisticated contemporary jazz’ John Fordham, The Guardian

DERVISH In their 15-year career, Dervish has remained consistently at the forefront of Irish traditional music, both as recording artists and performers. Bouzouki, mandola, flute, fiddle bodhran and accordion combine with the unique vocals of the entrancing Cathy Jordan to capture the intricate flavours of the Irish tradition. Their recent sets have also included a couple of carefully selected interpretations of modern songs, including Bob Dylan's ‘Boots of Spanish Leather’ and, from the new album, an early Cher hit ‘Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves’. Surprising choices for an Irish band, but given the Dervish treatment and Cathy Jordan's beautifully measured delivery, these songs fit satisfyingly alongside their more traditional material. This is Celtic music at its finest - in Dervish all the elements that make Irish music come together. Exceptional musicianship, breathtaking vocals, high-energy sets of tunes and instantly compelling songs make Dervish as complete a band as are to be found anywhere in the tradition.
Barley and Joseph have come along very different musical routes to eventually find themselves in a similar place: where there’s a passion to explore all kinds of music, and an openness to the unexpected delights of collaborations. In the first half of the concert, Barley plays solo Bach and Joseph presents a short set of jazz standards, both of them thereby showing their musical roots. In the second half, through the medium of Joseph’s compositions and other jazz works, these two musicians come together, showing their amazing improvisational skills, for a unique musical journey. ‘Matthew Barley is probably the world’s most adventurous cellist!’ Glasgow Herald ‘Julian is arguably the finest pianist of his generation a brilliant, dynamic presence’ Time Out

BORODIN Overture to 'Prince Igor' COPLAND Appalachian Spring Suite SIBELIUS Symphony No. 2 in D
WEBER Der Freischütz: Overture HINDEMITH Clarinet Concerto BRAHMS Symphony No.2 in D
Join the university’s student-run orchestra for an exciting programme featuring two gems of the twentieth century. Copland’s popular American style pervades one of his most enduring works, his Appalachian Spring Suite. After the interval the orchestra tackles Sibelius’s majestic Second Symphony. The concert opens with the uplifting overture from Borodin’s opera, Prince Igor.
The University Philharmonia’s winter concert opens with Weber's Overture to Der Freischütz, which magically combines themes of love, sorrow and nature in music that was to have a profound effect on subsequent composers, notably Berlioz and Wagner. Hindemith wrote his Clarinet Concerto for Benny Goodman in 1947 following his emigration to the USA. Predominately neo-classical in style this attractive concerto veers between lyrical, contemplative moods and joyously effervescent movements. Brahms composed his second symphony while on holiday in the Austrian Alps in 1877 and it has a predominantly genial, almost pastoral, mood with Brahms himself referring to it as ‘the happy symphony’.

In his William Byrd Suite, Gordon Jacob combined the mastery of Byrd’s keyboard writing with the broad palette of band sonorities to create a work of celebratory grandeur. Two linked portraits complete the programme: Nigel Hess’s Thames Journey, which captures the many moods of the great river; and Martin Ellerby’s New London Pictures, a celebration of the landmarks of modern London.

SIR GAWAIN AND THE GREEN KNIGHT TRANSLATED BY SIMON ARMITAGE ADAPTED AND DIRECTED BY DANIEL BUCKROYD Written by an unknown Midlands poet over six hundred years ago, but as fresh and startling as ever, critically-acclaimed New Perspectives Theatre Company is delighted to present the first ever staging of the powerful new translation from awardwinning poet, playwright and broadcaster, Simon Armitage. When, one New Year’s Day, festivities at the court of King Arthur are interrupted by the arrival of a mysterious Green Knight, and thrown into confusion by the extraordinary challenge he lays down, nobody, least of all the fearless Gawain, is prepared for the terrifying consequences of taking the supernatural stranger at his word. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight tells the haunting human story of a young knight’s epic journey through the changing seasons to find the Green Chapel and keep his appointment with fate. It’s a tale of temptation, romance and chivalry, shot through with rough-knuckled action and tall-tale humour, brought to life with the help of puppets and live music – a dazzling theatrical treat for young and old from the East Midlands’ favourite touring theatre company.

EMPTY BED BLUES WRITTEN BY STEPHEN LOWE DIRECTED BY MATT ASTON After the national success of his Brian Clough comedy- Old Big ‘Ead in the Spirit of the Man, and the critically acclaimed Smile, Stephen Lowe returns to local “hero”- DH Lawrence – for a moving and passionate study of the pains of love, of living, and of dying.
Penniless and desperate to find a publisher for his “Lady Chatterley”, Lawrence and Frieda turn to a legendary couple of the American “lost generation”, the drug fuelled poet and publisher Harry Crosby and his beautiful sculpturess wife, Caresse. Their passionate experiment in the total excess of living collides with the Lawrence’s more painful relationship into a a major clash of culture, of class and of sexual desire. Empty Bed Blues is a tragic-comic stage poem on life, death, and, above else, the nature of love and betrayal. It is based on the diaries of all four of the characters. This play has scenes of nudity and strong language
In 1929, DH Lawrence and his wife visited two wealthy young Americans, hoping they might finance an edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover. The quartet proves to be a potent, unpredictable combination.
“Stephen Lowe uses this visit brilliantly and movingly to bring into focus the stresses in the relationship between Lawrence and Frieda in those final years” Professor Keith Sagar author of The Life of DH Lawrence and editor of vol.VII in the Cambridge edition of Lawrence's Collected Letters.

Suitable for ages 16+, contains nudity A co-production with DanceXchange, commissioned by Swindon Dance, DanceXchange, Southbank Centre, Centre Chorégraphique National Roubaix Pas to Calais, Yorkshire Dance and Hextable Dance with support from Brighton Dome and Wyvern Theatre.
The Changing Game, is an emotional look at an eternal human dilemma: change. Can we learn that riding the rollercoaster of life can be as exhilarating as it is daunting? The Changing Game is brought to you by seven dancers, a percussionist and five singers. At its heart is the partnership of Fin Walker’s choreography and Ben Park’s music. The performers are accompanied by a new vocal score, influenced by the soaring, lush harmonies of eastern European devotional music.
