Ulster Orchestra – Brahms Requiem

Schubert Symphony No.8 Unfinished

Brahms A German Requiem

Jonathan Darlington CONDUCTOR

Elin Pritchard SOPRANO

Gareth Brynmor John BARITONE

Stephen Doughty CHORUSMASTER

Belfast Philharmonic Choir

Schubert’s Unfinished is a masterful piece of writing, the two movements so perfectly balanced it’s difficult to imagine how he could have created two more. The first movement is tragic, the second balances some of the most tender music Schubert ever wrote with angry, jagged outbursts. It’s a piece that is wracked with emotional turmoil, so it’s fitting that the second half of this concert brings music to spiritually console.

Brahms used not Latin liturgy, but text from the Lutheran Bible for his Requiem and placed the emphasis in this work on comfort for those in mourning. The result is A German Requiem; perhaps the central work in Brahms’s output and a work that is gentle and incredibly human. Written in 1865, it was prompted by Brahms’ own extreme personal loss: his mother had died the very same year he wrote the piece. Let this wonderful concert bring peace and time for reflection amidst the joy of Easter.

Carmina Burana – York University Choir

University Choir
Saturday 2 December 2017 at 7.30pm
Central Hall
Gareth Brynmor John baritone
Nicky Losseff, Mark Hutchinson pianos
Peter Seymour conductor
Orff Carmina Burana
Lambert The Rio Grande
Carmina Burana has enjoyed enormous popularity ever since its premiere in 1937, particularly in this arrangement for two pianos and six percussionists. The medieval texts, and Orff’s music, focus on the cycle of the turning wheel of fortune, dancing via the tavern, much gluttony and the Court of Love on the way. We are delighted to welcome Gareth Brynmor John, winner of the 2013 Kathleen Ferrier Award, in the demanding baritone role. Constant Lambert’s setting of a poem by Sacheverell Sitwell combines jazz, ragtime and Brazilian influences with a traditional English choral sound and revels in the composer’s fascination with the exotic.

CUMS Chorus – Israel in Egypt

Following its triumphant Saffron Hall debut in 2016 with Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius, Cambridge University Symphony Chorus returns to present Handel’s monumental oratorio Israel in Egypt.

Borrowing unashamedly from his own work, and parodying many other composers along the way, Handel sets out the great biblical story of the Israelites’ delivery from captivity in Egypt, led by Moses through a divided Red Sea after plagues of insects, disease and death.

Under the direction of Richard Wilberforce, the Chorus is delighted to be collaborating once again with the East Anglia Chamber Orchestra, and welcomes a fine array of soloists to Saffron Hall.
