Part of the 6th West Meon Music Festival 2016

Add to my Calendar 16-09-2016 19:30 16-09-2016 21:30 36 West Meon Music Festival  Internationally renowned clarinettist, Michael Collins, will be joining the Primrose Piano Quartet at this year’s West Meon Music Festival to be held in the village from the 16th to 18th September. This will be the sixth year for the festival, founded by the Primrose – Susanne Stanzeleit (violin), Dorothea Vogel (viola), Andrew Fuller (cello) and John Thwaites (piano) – in 2011; this year there will be a total of seven concerts over the weekend including an informal event for children, an opportunity to hear two “rising stars” on Saturday afternoon, and a candlelit concert of Viennese classics. This year the theme is “Vienna: Rise and Fall”, with the “rise” represented by works by Schubert and Brahms, and the “fall” moving to fin de siècle with Mahler’s Piano Quartet and Ravel’s La Valse  – originally titled “Vienna”. In addition to the evening concerts on Friday and Saturday the festival will include an afternoon recital on Saturday by two “rising stars” – Zhivko Georgiev (violin) and Daniel Bovey (guitar) – performing, among other works, Piazzolla’s dramatic Histoire du Tango. Sunday provides the opportunity for a relaxing day in West Meon with a “Coffee Concert” in the morning which will include the world première of Anthony Payne’s arrangement of Elgar’s Two Miniatures, specially adapted for the Primrose, as well as works by Brahms, Chopin, and Saint-Saëns. The afternoon’s “Finale” is a splendid tea-time occasion including Johann Strauss II’s Roses from the South while Dvorak’s wonderful Piano Quintet in A major ends the festival. Entertainment for all the family will come, as usual, from the lively musical event for children on Saturday morning and a free late-night folk band at the Thomas Lord pub on Saturday evening. Both these concerts will be in aid of this year’s chosen charity – The Rosemary Foundation, which provides hospice at home services in Hampshire.
