O Spring Most Fair!

Linnet Baroque is a collective of talented and experienced early music specialists who have gathered to present virtuosic music from the baroque and early classical eras. There is a strong focus on English music and the ‘bird-song’ genre, where the obbligato instruments and voice are given equal virtuosic opportunities.

This hour of music, embracing the joys of Springtime, begins with Quingard’s aria to the nightingale, a role taken by the recorder. Pepusch wrote his invigorating cantata, addressing the Goddess Flora, in 1710, whilst working as music master to the Duke of Chandos. He worked alongside Handel, who was employed as the Duke’s Composer in Residence. Handel composed several roles for Pepucsh’s wife, the soprano Margerite de L’Epine, and also for Faustina Bordogni, Hasse’s wife.

In the Hasse aria, the scorned poet warns his lover that the joys of Spring soon turn to the chill of Winter, a metaphor for fading youth and beauty also reflected in the Dutch composer, De Fesch’s song.

The title of this programme comes from the Rubbra’s text in his Cantata Pastorale. Rubbra, a most neglected 20thC English composer, had a strong interest in past musical forms, hence this work for baroque ensemble, with a recorder part originally written for Carl Dolmetch.

Elin Harries - soprano, Andrew Collis - recorders, Ibrahim Aziz - bass viol and David Wright - harpsichord.

Free admission, but you can pre-book advance tickets here.

Kloster is a solo project, a band, and a music collective curated by Mikael R Andreasen. Based out of his home studio in Copenhagen, Mikael spends his time creating musical thoughts with the help of friends who drop by. The atmosphere is relaxed, the music being something that brings people together in a creative expression. Self-taught and with a curious mind, the songs are based around an idea of cheery exploration, a collage of ideas added to by people who pass through with their own offerings. The songs circle around spiritual matters and tend to focus on vocal melodies wrapped in beautiful chords and tones.

Since 2001, Kloster has released six albums, two EPs, a live recording and a Christmas single, and has made numerous live appearances in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, England, The Faroe Islands, Germany, and Poland at regular music clubs and festivals such as Roskilde FestivalFanø Free Folk FestivalApple Flower FestivalKamerad & Spelemann, and many others, and also at more unusual venues such as a lighthouse on the west coast of Denmark, a theatre in London, a wooden barn deep inside the forests of Norway, a church on the Faroe Islands, the old Carlsberg brewery building, the Louisiana art museum, a grotto north of the Polar Circle, and various other exciting and beautiful places.

Kloster has been releasing music on Washington Inc RecordsL’art pour L’artVMECrime & Punishment Packaged Goods, and is currently signed to Target Recordsand Burnt Toast Vinyl.

Kloster’s latest album Half Dream, Half Epiphany was nominated for album of the year both at Steppeulven 2016 and at Danish Music Awards Folk 2016.

Mikael R Andreasen won the Composer of the year award at Steppeulven 2016.

Chopin Fusion: A postlude to Chopin’s Preludes; Jazz funk meets Classical sophistication!

Freshly original compositions draw ideas from the melodies, rhythms, chords, and motifs of Chopin’s ground-breaking Preludes, resulting in a unique musical narrative. The creative musical fusion is underscored by the diverse band line-up: jazz drummer (Tom), gospel singer (Geraldine), funky bass guitarist (Matt) - who also plays flugelhorn, pianist / composer (Carey) who loves to blur stylistic and rhythmic boundaries.

Within each carefully crafted piece there is space for improvisational freedom; a chance for the band to dialogue using profoundly moving melodies or light-hearted rhythms. Tracks include ‘Atacama Hope’ – the story of the 33 Chilean miners rescued in 2010, ‘Vistula Vision’ – the struggle for Polish independence (which Chopin was never to see in his brief lifetime), ‘Exiled in Paris’ – Chopin’s home, but not his homeland. for sample videos & album tracks.

Carey Luce (Piano / Composer) | Tom Hooper (Drums) | Geraldine Latty (Vocals) | Matt Weeks (Bass / Flugelhorn)
