Add to my Calendar 19-01-2018 20:00 19-01-2018 22:00 36 Craig Ogden - Guitar recital Following his visits to us in 2014 and 2016, we are delighted to welcome Criag Ogden back to Bromsgrove again with another fascinating guitar programme. Lutenist Weiss was an almost exact contemporary of Bach, but based mainly in Dresden. Antonio Jose was considered by Ravel to be the ‘future of Spanish Music’, but died, aged only 34, shortly after his Sonata was written. Nigel Westlake is a contemporary Australian composer. Bromsgrove Concerts’ forthcoming season is once again attracting attention for the calibre of its internationally renowned guest artists who will be bringing an enterprising selection of styles and periods to suit all musical tastes.  Concerts take place at the town’s purpose-built Arts Centre, Artrix, from October 2017 until March 2018.       Visiting during the 2017-18 season include audience favourites, Guitarist Craig Ogden, who brings his own particular warmth and proficiency to an engaging programme of works both new and old, and leading British pianist, Leon McCawley, who brings a classic programme of Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, and Hans Gál - the often overlooked Austrian composer - who he has recently recorded. Two outstanding string quartets - the Castalian - following visits to the Esbjerg International Chamber Music Festival and the Wigmore Hall - and the Kodaly -ambassadors of Hungarian string quartet culture - bring major works by Haydn, Beethoven, Schumann, Dohnanyi, Kodaly and Thomas Adès. Internationally acclaimed Austrian Cellist, Florian Kitt, and pianist, Carlos Rivera-Aguilar, bring the cello into focus with an adventurous programme of works by Beethoven, Prokofiev, Britten, Takemitsu and Austrian contemporary composer, Friedrich Cerha. Period instrument Ensemble DeNOTE (clarinet, violin, viola, cello, and fortepiano), give their own individual insight into works by Haydn and Mozart, including an arrangement of the Gran Partita K361, in a programme they will personally introduce. The gifted young Eblana String Trio – violin, viola and cello – showcase lyrical British works by Purcell, Finzi, E. J. Moeran and David Matthews.  The Trio won all the major chamber music prizes during their time at the Royal Northern College of Music and have recently enjoyed a debut performance at London’s Wigmore Hall for the Park Lane Group. The Van Kuijk Quartet from France, with guest Charlotte Bonneton (2nd viola), bring the season to a close with a programme of works by Brahms, Ligeti and Mozart’s remarkable G Minor Quintet K516.  Winners of a string of awards, including 1st prize, Haydn prize and Beethoven prize at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, the group are in demand internationally and have played throughout Europe, the United States, South East Asia and Australia during the past season.  Bromsgrove Concerts “At Bromsgrove Concerts, we aim to provide programmes that are easily enjoyable while offering a varied and imaginative repertoire, and to regularly introduce audiences to unfamiliar contemporary pieces”, explained Janet Upward, Chair of the Committee.  “Responses from our audience suggest that hearing contemporary pieces alongside more traditional works enhances the listening experience of both.”  “This season we are particularly keen to extend an invitation to those who may be first-time visitors from across the region; offering a friendly welcome and opportunity to mingle socially”, added Janet.  “We regularly link up with compatible arts enterprises to encourage those interested to come along and bring their friends.  For regular concert-goers there is a cost-effective Season ticket which allows access to all concerts priced at a discounted rate, or a flexible Rover ticket.” Concert Dates: Friday 29th September 2017 - Castalian String Quartet Friday 20th October 2017 - Florian Kitt and Carlos Rivera-Aguilar Friday 17th November 2017 - Ensemble DeNOTE Friday 1st December 2017 - Kodaly String Quartet Friday 19th January 2018 - Craig Ogden Friday 9th February 2018 - Leon McCawley Friday 2nd March 2018 - Eblana String Trio Friday 16th March 2018 - Van Kuijk String Quartet with Charlotte Bonneton Artrix, Bromsgrove DD/MM/YYYY
