Welcome Dear Friends, Artists, Colleagues and Music Lovers, Welcome to our 27th Festival. This festival introduces new genres, new venues and artists coming to LDSM for the first time. It welcomes the return of close colleagues and looks forward to new arts collaborations in Cumbria. In 1985, the Canadian ‘Orford’ String Quartet opened the first LDSM Festival. Their second concert established Rosehill Theatre as a festival venue for many years. In 2011, the young string players of Whitehaven will renew the partnership between Rosehill and LDSM with their showcase concert ‘Sea Strings’. Joan Rodgers, world-acclaimed soprano from Cockermouth, gives a celebrity recital – the first in a series of vocal recitals, when words and music, poets and musicians become one. Poetry Reading links LDSM and the Wordsworth Trust in a new collaboration before a Rising Star violin recital in Grasmere. Wine and dine at Fellinis before indulging in opera and ballet from the great opera houses and concert halls of the world. A new film venture. Brass Band features in LDSM for the first time. Zone One Brass includes acclaimed virtuoso Euphonium soloist, Robert Childs. Psappha returns with the world premiere of Sally Beamish’s ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ with Sam West star of stage and film. We celebrate the Chilingirians at 40! Blackwell hosts two cocktail hour concerts. Solo recitals, ensembles, masterclasses, talks, Vivaldi Four Seasons, Purcell’s Dido, Dvorˇák’s serenades, Mozart’s clarinet quintet, Liszt, Ravel, Prokofiev, Britten …. Rejoice with us in the riches of music, ‘the greatest good that mortals know’. Renna Kellaway, Artistic Director

Fiona Robertson VIOLIN Stephen Threlfall CONDUCTOR

David Prior composer Frances Crow architect Tebay Gorge

Westmorland Hall, Kendal Leisure Centre

Winner of the PRSF’s New Music Award 2010

Strauss Introduction to Capriccio, Op.85 12’ Berg Concerto for violin and orchestra, Op.35 26’ Brahms Symphony No.1 in C minor, Op.68 46’

In a world saturated by sound ‘The Organ of Corti’ is a musical instrument that recycles the sound of road traffic. By using the acoustic principles of sonic crystals to accentuate or attenuate the frequencies within the sound, it enables listeners to hear musical structures within what many would consider noise.

This fantastic orchestra returns with a thrilling programme. The Berg concerto is dedicated “to the memory of an angel” – a reference to the death of the daughter of Alma Mahler (once wife of the famous composer). It was completed very quickly and is one of Berg’s best-known and mostperformed works. Coupled with works by Strauss and Brahms this annual event is a wonderful way to celebrate the talents of young musicians and to look forward to the International Festival ahead later in the month.

The ‘Organ of Corti’ proposes a radical departure from traditional conceptions of what constitutes music by framing existing sounds in the environment and inviting listeners to navigate their own way through the maze of possible outcomes. It reminds us that the phenomenon we are hearing is of course always changing, always new, and suggests a way of reconsidering of the act of listening itself. The Organ of Corti is the winner of the PRSF New Music Award 2010 and with support from the Arts Council England will tour to four venues over the summer of 2011.

Following the huge success of his performance of Hildegard of Bingen at LDSM in 2008, Michael Fields now brings a new production, created for LDSM, of Henry Purcell’s dark and passionate opera. On the shores of Derwentwater, this tale of shipwrecked Aeneas and his love for Dido finds new resonance, ultimately culminating in the anguish of her famous final aria, “Dido’s Lament”.

“It is a truly tremendous piece of art which moves the entire being in a way little else does,” commented Clara Schumann in a letter to Brahms, reviewing the piano transcription of Brahms’s setting of the Requiem Mass. Tonight’s performance by the LDSM Festival Chorus draws together singers from choruses across the area. 44
