About Music in Norwich This programme is the result of a collaboration between a number of organisations who promote classical, jazz and world music. The aim is to gather music listings in one place so that they are easy to find and also to offer an overview of performances throughout the year. The Music in Norwich group is a self-supporting partnership of music organisations active and promoting music in Norwich and the surrounding area. We hope you will keep this booklet safe as it covers six months’ programming. Because of space limitations and lots going on, concert details are brief but you can find out more from individual organisations. See page 43 for venue and contact details and also where to buy tickets. Please also visit our website at www.musicinnorwich.org.uk where you can download a pdf of this programme. Important: All information is subject to change please check with individual organisations before travelling to an event.

Benjamin Britten and Familiar Fields - a note from the Editor There is lots going on musically in Norwich this year as you will see from the following pages.

Benjamin Britten

Of particular note is the centenary in November 2013 of the birth of Benjamin Britten, one of the celebrated ‘sons’ of East Anglia, born in Lowestoft, educated at Gresham’s, Holt, active in Norwich and working in Aldeburgh, Suffolk for most of his life. From Autumn 2012 to Autumn 2013 there will be celebrations of his work gathered together under the banner ‘Familiar Fields’, words from one of his works, ‘Peter Grimes’. So wherever you see the logo below, you will know the work is part of the Britten Centenary celebration. Benjamin Britten’s work was prolific, accessible and popular. If you want to know more about his life and his contribution to music, pick up one of the brochures that are available everywhere or look at the websites www.familiarfields.org and www.britten100.org.


The Academy of St Thomas was founded in 1973 and has been promoting high calibre concerts in the region ever since. The players of the Academy are drawn from professional musicians and peripatetic teachers who donate their talents in order to play in a high-standard orchestra. Concerts have been acclaimed for their high professional standards and exhilarating performances under the direction of conductor Christopher Adey.

Concerts

The Bach Players explore the Easter Story from Mary’s viewpoint with Pergolesi’s poignant rendition of the Stabat Mater and two of Biber’s Mystery Sonatas, each vividly depicting a station of the cross.

Thursday 27 September 2012, 7.30pm Bach and his rivals Rachel Elliott soprano, Sally Bruce-Payne alto Andrew Staples tenor, Matthew Brook bass When Johann Kuhnau died in 1722, the most important musical job in Leipzig became vacant. Three composers auditioned to become the next Cantor at St Thomas's church: Telemann, Graupner and Bach. Both Telemann and Graupner turned it down. Bach landed third place and accepted the job. For this concert The Bach Players gather their forces to play a deeply affecting cantata by each composer, written as an audition piece to show off his talents.

Keswick Hall Choir

In the Britten centenary year we mix and match pieces written between 1930-1950 by Britten and some of his composer friends. In their original form the Old American Songs were given their world première by Britten and Pears. Poulenc's influence generated a whole sequence of French-inspired music and and Lennox Berkeley shared a house with Britten in the 30s, eventually collaborating on an orchestral suite. The four choral works by Britten will be interspersed with organ solos.

We are very pleased to have been given a Britten Award by the Trustees of the Britten-Pears Foundation in relation to the programming of this concert.

For the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II we round off our season with a grand pageant of music for Coronations past. Opening with Zadok the Priest, and exploring some lesser-known composers and music from Coronations of the 17th and 18th centuries, there is much which will appeal beyond the well-known dose of Handel.

Formed in 2006, Norwich Baroque specialises in fresh and vibrant interpretations of music by popular and less well known baroque composers; from Handel, Bach and Vivaldi to Avison, Hellendaal and Mudge.

Norwich Baroque at Binham Priory Friday 31 August 2012, 7.30pm St. Mary’s Church, Attleborough Saturday 1 September 2012, 7.30pm Binham Priory, Binham

After the success of last year’s mini-tour, Norwich Baroque takes another trip out of the city to the church in the Parish of St Mary’s, Attleborough and the atmospheric Norman Priory at Binham for consecutive evenings of popular baroque music in beautiful surroundings. Programme to include Vivaldi`s concerto for four violins, The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, Purcell’s Chaconne, an Albinoni concerto for two oboes and music by Boyce, Telemann and Wassenaer.

Norwich Baroque

Performing with eminent soloists from the baroque world, it has grown increasingly popular with audiences and established a niche for itself in the cultural life of the region. Recent soloists have included internationally respected countertenor Michael Chance, exciting young soprano Elizabeth Watts, Crispian Steele-Perkins, probably the best known name in the world of baroque brass performance and baroque dance duo Sasza Zargowski and Moira Goff.

With violin soloists Rachel Stroud and John Crockatt, and oboist, Robert de Bree, our programme features two Bach double concertos (for 2 violins, and for oboe and violin) a concerto for oboe d’amore, the 3rd Brandenburg concerto and the violin concerto in A minor.

Don’t miss the return of the ever popular Christmas by Candlelight. Two years ago over 500 people enjoyed an evening away from the bustle of 21st century Christmas and travelled back in time with us to the serenity and atmosphere of the 17th and 18th century festive season in the candlelit beauty of our Cathedral. In 2010 the magical surroundings were enhanced still further by the heaviest snow fall of the year, so be prepared.

Choral performances have included Requiems by Mozart, FaurĂŠ, Rutter, Masses by Mozart and Schubert, Jenkins' The Armed Man, Orff's Carmina Burana, works by Byrd, Tavener, Bach, Elgar, Parry and Patrick Hawes who is emerging as one of the country's most popular and inspirational composers, forging a link with Norfolk where he now resides.

Orchestral works performed include Vivaldi's Four Seasons; Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 & No. 5; and Haydn's Symphony The Clock. Philip Aldred, conductor and musical director, was trained in the English choral tradition and studied at Trinity College of Music and Durham University.

The Choir rehearses weekly at Spooner Row Chapel near Wymondham and warmly welcomes new members. Contact details are on page 43.
