Monthly music marvels start later in the year

 Published on: 12th August 2018   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

This autumn sees the start of the inaugural season of monthly Saturday night concerts under the banner Music in Pinner (MPS). 

MPS draws together two strands, flowing on from Pinner Jazz, whose final concert was in March this year, and picking up from the annual Pinner Music Festival, to create a season that mixes classical music with jazz. 

The Fidelio Trio open proceedings on October 6, performing works by Faure, Ravel and Schubert. On Remembrance Saturday, November 10, a special concert marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War, given by the young choir, The Carice Singers. They feature works by Holst and Elgar, alongside Hubert Parry’s Songs of Farewell.

On December 8 audiences can enjoy an exploration of classical pieces for alto saxophone, written by or inspired by women, performed by Dom Childs and Simon Callaghan (piano), including Debussy’s Rapsody, a Carmen Suite.

On February 23 the Chelys Consort of Viols makes a return visit to Pinner, performing with local star David Gould (counter-tenor). In their Pictures at an Exhibition programme they perform music inspired by Renaissance paintings.

Other season highlights include a return visit by American tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton, a Pinner Jazz favourite, on January 2019, and a baroque-inspired jazz trio (including Alec Dankworth on double-bass) led by pianist David Gordon, performing with renowned jazz violinist, Christian Garrick, on March 23. 

The season closes on April 27 with Mary’s Hand, about Mary Tudor, written by Pinner-born composer Martin Bussey and performed by dramatic mezzo-soprano Clare McCaldin.
