Classical, jazz and family concerts in Sheffield


Get closer to the music

EXPERIENCE LIVE MUSIC FROM THE WORLD’S LEADING CLASSICAL MUSICIANS, PERFORMED IN THE UNIQUE SURROUNDINGS OF THE CRUCIBLE STUDIO.

LET THE MUSIC BEGIN… Meet Ensemble 360, Sheffield’s world-class chamber group. Comprising eleven of the country’s finest musicians, the Ensemble is at the heart of our annual classical music programme. These supremely talented musicians regularly come together to perform in pairs, trios, quartets and more.

Ensemble 360 are: CLAUDIA AJMONE-MARSAN Violin NAOMI ATHERTON Horn JULIETTE BAUSOR Flute LAURÈNE DURANTEL Double Bass RUTH GIBSON Viola AMY HARMAN Bassoon MATTHEW HUNT Clarinet TIM HORTON Piano BENJAMIN NABARRO Violin GEMMA ROSEFIELD Cello ADRIAN WILSON Oboe

It’s an extraordinary place to encounter music – both intimate and relaxed; where you get so close to the performers you can feel their excitement, see their energy and hear the control in every note. Informal introductions and pre-concert talks mean you don’t need to know anything about the music in advance. And there’s never a dress code, just an open invitation for everyone, of all ages and all musical tastes, to come and join us.

EVENING CONCERTS

Welcome to our Autumn 2017 Season

We are very excited by the music being presented this autumn. Each concert is a stand-alone event, but there are also themes that extend across several concerts and seasons. Ensemble 360 has long looked forward to presenting the Sequenzas by Luciano Berio: two of his short, often humorous, always virtuosic works can be heard on 9 October and 29 November. And now, to add to the Leonore Trio’s compelling Beethoven series, Tim Horton embarks on a cycle of Schubert’s six greatest piano sonatas. Plus, join us for the launch of our new global music series, World of Strings, on Friday 17 November with an evening of Brazilian-infused music devised by classical violinist Viktoria Mullova. This is followed by Sheffield’s Rafiki Jazz, who’ll bring their unique global music with a contemporary twist to the Crucible Studio for the first time. Enjoy the music! Angus Smith, Artistic Director

Saturday 2 September 7.30 - 9.10pm St Martin’s Church, Stoney Middleton £20 £14 Disabled & Unemployed £5 Students & Under 35s

HAYDN String Quartet in C Op.20 No.2 BEETHOVEN String Quartet Op.95 Serioso RAVEL String Quartet in F Some years ago, Peter Cropper, founder of Music in the Round, came across the beautiful St Martin’s Church at Stoney Middleton, built in 1415 as a thanksgiving offering for the English victory at the Battle of Agincourt. With its rare octagonal nave, Peter immediately envisaged this as a perfect setting for a string quartet concert. With limited audience capacity, early booking is advised (via the office) for this programme devised by the Marmen Quartet for a late summer evening.

Monday 9 October 7.15 - 9.10pm Crucible Studio Theatre £20 £14 Disabled & Unemployed £5 Students & Under 35s

SCHUBERT String Quartet in E D.353 BERIO Sequenza IV for piano MAHLER Piano Quartet in A minor KORNGOLD Piano Quintet in E Op.15 Two wonderful and overlooked chamber works from composers whose reputations largely rest in music written for huge forces. Mahler’s early Quartet has great youthful charm, while Korngold’s Quintet not only displays the grand, sweeping scale of his later film music but also contains secret codes addressed to his fiancée. No wonder Mahler declared Korngold to be a ‘musical genius’!

Tickets sold for this special concert in memory of Peter will support our Bridge development scheme for young quartets. Please purchase your tickets via the office info@musicintheround or 0114 281 4660.

In the last year alone she has performed recitals in Boston, New York and Paris, and has played concertos with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the LSO. Imogen’s programme includes Haydn’s dramatic Sonata in C minor - his first written for the newly-invented touch-sensitive keyboard - and a hauntingly beautiful short piece by Thomas Adès.

MOZART String Quartet in G K.387 HAYDN String Quartet in C Op.74 No.1 BRAHMS String Quartet in A minor Op.51 No.2

London-born Edwin York Bowen was nicknamed ‘the English Rachmaninov’ and enjoyed huge popularity before the First World War, but his overtly romantic style fell out of favour in later years. The Oboe Sonata was written in 1930 and championed by Leon Goossens, who did more than any other Englishman to establish the oboe as a solo instrument.

For their final performance as Music in the Round’s ‘Bridge’ quartet, the Marmen Quartet launch the evening with effervescent works by Mozart and Haydn. Brahms’ Op.51 quartets were the first works for this formation that he was willing to publish, even then after a period of immense doubt – he actually described the pair as “written for the second time.” It was well worth waiting!

Now members of the BBC’s New Generation Artist and the European-wide ECHO Rising Star rosters, their programme includes Debussy’s gloriously sensual quartet. “Style, energy and a sense of risk.

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s uplifting Clarinet Quintet recalls the grand vision and energy of Brahms’ and ˇ Dvorák’s finest chamber music. It is the work of a fully-matured master composer. Patrick Brennan’s new work has been commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society for this performance. The awardwinning composer studied with Julian Anderson and Hans Abrahamsen and commissions to date include works for Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and the London Symphony Orchestra.

“…music for balmy nights, cool drinks, a tropical greeting from Sugar Loaf Mountain.”

• Post-concert talk All ticket holders are invited to stay on for an informal Q&A session with Viktoria Mullova after the concert.

Banish the early winter gloom and luxuriate in arrangements of classic songs by legendary Brazilian composers Caetano Veloso, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Marisa Monte and Zequinha de Abreu played by a stellar quartet of soloists. This project was devised by internationally renowned violinist Viktoria Mullova who, in the words of The Guardian, brings “dancing virtuosity” to music that is “as dazzling as the sights and sounds of Brazil.”

Saturday 18 November 7.45 - 10pm Crucible Studio Theatre £16 £12.50 Disabled & Unemployed £5 Students & Under 35s

Sheffield’s all-star global music collective perform rich and mesmerising music, traversing continents, languages and cultures. Indian violin, Senegalese kora and Caribbean steelpans meld into the enchanting colours of Arabic oud and kawala flutes, the hypnotic drones of Indian tanpura and Brazilian berimbau. Coloured by inspirational vocals from the Sufisoul singer Sarah Yaseen and Hebrew-Hindi vocalist Avital Raz, Rafiki Jazz’s Crucible Studio debut also includes a new collaborative piece emerging from our World of Strings project. Charles Ritchie (of Talking Gigs) hosts the first half of this concert, which will include informal introductions to the music, exploring the diverse influences and variety of instruments featured.

BENJAMIN NABARRO Violin RUTH GIBSON Viola BACH 2-part Inventions for violin and viola MOZART Duo in B flat K.424 MARTINŮ 3 Madrigals for violin and viola HANDEL/HALVORSEN Passacaglia in G minor A trio of pieces in Baroque and Classical style are at the heart of Ruth and Ben’s lunchtime concert, with Mozart’s Duo standing out as a small-scale masterpiece. The Duo was clearly the inspiration for Bohuslav Martinů’s colourful Madrigals, written soon after the composer settled in New York in 1947 and during a period when he was fascinated with the music of Haydn and Mozart.

BERIO Sequenza IXa for clarinet BEETHOVEN Horn Sonata in F Op.17 MOZART Quartet for clarinet and string trio K.374f DOHNÁNYI Sextet for violin, viola, cello, horn, clarinet and piano in C Op.37 An evening of energetic music launched with virtuoso classical and modern writing for clarinet and horn. Ernst von Dohnányi belongs to the same generation of Hungarian composers as Bartók and Kodály, but unlike his contemporaries he showed little interest in folk music and instead preferred to preserve and champion the Romantic tradition of Liszt and Brahms. His Sextet displays characteristic lyricism, zest and, not least, humour.

The Sonata in A minor was written in 1826 and dedicated to Archduke Rudolf of Austria, one of Beethoven’s most important patrons. Schubert wrote after the first performance that “several people assured me that under my fingers the keys began to sing. If this is sincere, it makes me very happy since I cannot stand the wretched hacking which is typical of even excellent pianists, as it pleases neither the ear nor the heart!”

Jason Rebello is one of the most inventive pianists to emerge from the UK since the early 90s. He has worked in his own groups and with Sting and Jeff Beck, then in 2016 his debut solo piano album “Held” won Best Album in the British Jazz Awards. His concert in Sheffield was one of the Sheffield Jazz highlights of 2016 and we couldn’t wait to bring him back with this brilliant international trio. 21
