Live Music In Chester & Cheshire

Chester Cathedral

Chester Bach Singers
Monteverdi Vespers Of 1610

📅 Saturday 8 June 2019
Chester Cathedral
The 2018-19 season climaxes with one of the most memorable concert experiences: Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610, performed in the inspiring architecture of Chester Cathedral, a worthy stand-in for St Mark’s Venice. This sequence of vocal and choral masterpieces, composed just at the time when opera was taking off, is unique in its colour and vivid, virtuosic vocal writing. Chester Bach Singers performs alongside the talented young singers who make up the Fieri Consort, whose debut CD in 2017 focused on the music of Monteverdi and who the BBC Music Magazine described as ‘giving some of the best in the business a run for their scudi’. Accompanied by regular partners the Eighteenth Century Sinfonia and, for the first time, The English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble, this should be a high point of Chester music making in 2019.

Love, Life And Death
📅 Saturday 29 June 2019
Chester Cathedral 7.30 pm
Hindemith :- Symphonic Metamorphosis of themes by Carl Maria von Weber.
Shostakovich:- ‘Cello Concerto
Prokofiev:- Romeo and Juliet
Conductor - Marco Bellasi
Findlay Spence (‘Cello)

How better to close our Season of Life and Death in music than to hear these three very unusual, yet well known, pieces of (fairly) modern classical music. The Hindemith, with possibly the longest title in the musical repertoire, with it’s first orchestral performance in 1943 is tuneful with toe tapping exuberance. Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto was composed in 1959 for Mstislav Rostropovich and is unusual in that the final three of the four movement work are played without a break. Folk tunes form some of the themes and there is even a reference to Mussorgsky’s Songs and Dances of Death. The Prokofiev is probably the best known of all the contributions to this evenings concert. It is surprisingly the oldest of the three pieces being composed as far back as 1935. The Ballet for which it was composed was however not performed until 1940. The music is of course programmatic and tells the story of Romeo and Juliet in musical form. The fight between the Montagues and Capulets is well known as the introductory theme to the BBC Programme “The Apprentice”. Our soloist Findlay Spence is a young up and coming star from Scotland. He is currently Cellist and Composer studying at the Royal College of Music in London, and Musician in Residence at St. Paul’s Church, Knightsbridge.

Tickets priced at £16; £12 and £9 (Students £5) are available from Cathedral Booking Office on 01244 500959 or chesterphilorchestra.co.uk

Frequent performers at our Monthly Musical Monday Sessions Almaz will host an intimate evening of Jazz & Blues in Gallery One on 13th July

Discovered busking at Nantwich Jazz & Blues Festival last year and invited to perform on the ‘Introducing Stage ‘ Almaz have been busy making an impression with their unique style of 1930’s songs.

Think Chet Baker & T-Bone Walker meet a troubled Moll in a prohibition Juke Joint and you might imagine a voice full of soul paired with dynamic and engaging guitar.

Almaz have been busy making an impression with their unique style jazz and blues covers matched perfectly with this Songwriting Duo’s own self-penned tracks.

Their Jazz is heavily influenced by sounds of Chet Baker & Ella Fitzgerald whereas their Blues lends dynamically toward T-Bone Walker & Etta James. The duo delight with a mix of relaxed and upbeat songs of old and new.

Performing tracks from their Debut Album, Shut The Door (Behind you when you Leave) Due for release in July, Almaz will take you on a musical journey through time with stripped back big band notables from The Great American Song Book. Cole Porter, Gershwin played with a style and grace befitting of them and blended with a mix of T-Bone style prohibition Blues which will keep you hooked until the final chord is played.

Doors open at 7.30 pm, Starts 8 pm.

From the lush landscapes of “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” to the haunting refrain of “A Great Gig in the Sky”, the band will guide you on a magical journey through the illustrious recording career of the world’s most successful progressive rock group.
