In a festival full of celebration and commemoration, LDSM is delighted to mark the close of the NCO‘s 50th year in our own opening concert.
From the pomp and pageantry of Handel‘s music for King George I‘s barge being rowed on the Thames, we move to a poignant work originally written by Sir John Manduell in commemoration of Christopher Rowland, himself an important figure in LDSM‘s history. Reworked at the request of Kent Nagano from quartet to full strings, it now serves as a homage to Sir John, whose generous support and enthusiasm has benefitted LDSM enormously since its inauguration.
Leading Irish soprano Ailish Tynan comes to LDSM for the first time (see also her recital on Tue 31st), and her effervescent character ideally suits Mozart‘s popular motet.
We also include a little-known Mozart aria that highlights this year‘s featured instrument in our festival programmes, the bassoon: it is a reworking from Ilia‘s aria ‘Se il padre perdei‘ in Idomeneo. Ambleside-based international bassoonist Ursula Leveaux will play the obbligato part.
