Welcome Dear Friends, Artists, Colleagues and Music Lovers, Welcome to our 26th Festival. ‘What is music?’ the poet Heine asked and pondered. As the 19th century romantic movement gathered pace, composers, poets and painters pooled their newfound expressive freedom, leaving us works of intrinsic beauty still relevant and sought after in the scientific and precise 21st century. Our Festival programme this year celebrates the births of Schumann and Chopin in 1810. With their colleagues, Liszt, Mendelssohn, Wagner, and others, they were swept along by the passion aroused in the pursuit of personal expression. You will also be moved by the inspiration and genius found in the song cycles of Schumann, Mahler, Finzi and Bridge. The King’s Singers open the festival taking us from 16th-century Byrd and Tallis to the Europe of Schumann, Mendelssohn and Saint-Saëns. Other choral works take us to Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle and a late-night programme from Schumann to Bridge given by Pro Nobis. Walton brings the smart, sophisticated 1920s to us with his settings of Edith Sitwell’s ironic poems in Façade. In this programme you can also enjoy Berio’s enchanting folk songs, sung by Wendy Dawn Thompson. Northern Sinfonia, the distinguished Gaudier Ensemble, the QuintEssential players of cornettes, sackbutts and dulcian, plus the Brook Street Band, join us for the first time. Soloists and ensembles, old friends and new, fill our festival programmes in works by the Romantics, whose influence continues to this day, and also works from the composers Schumann and his colleagues revered.

Contents

The greatness of Beethoven, indestructible Bach and Mozart, lie comfortably with today’s contemporary composers and continue to illuminate our lives with their music. Enjoy it all: the music, and the cameraderie of meeting our artists, our students and your festival friends. Renna Kellaway, Artistic Director

The UK’s widest-spread music festival This year’s International Festival programme comes at a pivotal point for LDSM. In 2011 we move from our Ambleside campus, which has been home to our International Summer Music Academy for a quarter of a century, to fantastic facilities at Windermere St Anne’s School – truly an inspiring, new base for our next 25 years. Sadly missing from our 2010 programme, will be Ambleside Parish Church, which is undergoing extensive refurbishment. However, expect new comfortable seats, staging possibilities and facilities next year. The variety and history of our Festival venues has always been a key attraction of LDSM. Below you will find information on access, but do go to our new website (www.ldsm.org.uk) to find out more, including venue links, directions, advice on parking, and more! There is much to look forward to in 2010 and 2011. Do come and join us – the UK’s “friendly festival” DAILY TELEGRAPH. Andrew Lucas, Senior Executive Officer

It tells the story of a manipulative servant girl and her mission to become lady of the manor. Led by Robert Saxton, the evening opens with first performances of four short operatic scenes, written by emerging young professional composers looking to establish themselves on the 21st century soundscape.

Gaudier Ensemble St Martin’s Church, Bowness-on-Windermere 11.30AM REFRESHMENTS 12NOON CONCERT

Schubert Octet in F, D803

Commissioned by clarinettist Ferdinand Troyer as a companion piece to Beethoven’s Septet. Schubert was alleged to have been composing a “Grand Symphony” around the same time as his Octet. It is tantalising to wonder if the Octet was in fact a set of preliminary sketches for this work. Whatever its origin, the work has remained an enduring favourite with audiences.

The Škampa Quartet’s innate playing of the Czech repertoire is steeped in history and tradition, building upon the work of the quartet’s mentors, The Smetana Quartet, and traceable back to earlier groups such as the Bohemian Quartet. Morava, the first string quartet by the group’s former leader, Pavel Fisher, was given its world première in 2007 at LDSM. It is with particular pleasure that we welcome Fischer’s Quartet No.2 in a world première tonight.

“Good God – behold completed this poor little Mass – is it indeed sacred music (la musique sacrée) that I have just written, or merely some damned music (la sacré musique)? You know well, I was born for comic opera. Little science, a little heart, that is all. So may you be blessed, and grant me Paradise!” Thus Rossini prefaced his Petite Messe Solennelle. Originally written for 12 voices, it has become one of the staples of the choral tradition, here sung by a specially-formed Festival Chorus.

An idyllic love between Acis, the shepherd, and Galatea, the sea nymph, is shattered when Acis is brutally murdered by a huge boulder thrown by the jealous Sicilian Cyclops Polyphemus. Distraught, Galatea transforms his blood into the flowing river Acis. Handel’s sense of drama and flowing melodies bring this legend to life on the shores of Derwentwater.
