MUSIC FROM AGES FOR ALL AGES
The annual Freddy Bond concert this year on Sunday, 1st December, will be held in the Dome, Kelham Hall & features the return of the Isis ensemble directed by Jacques Cohen. Tenor and horn soloists will perform in Benjamin Britten's Simple Symphony and other composers include Purcell, Cohen & Tchaikovsky.
Those who have heard the Isis Ensemble in Newark previously know what a superb sound it achieves.
The Ensemble was launched as a fully professional orchestra in 2005 and the members are international soloists, high-profile chamber musicians and experienced orchestral players with collective experience of almost all major orchestras in the UK.
Jacques Cohen read music at Oxford where he conducted the university orchestras and performed several of his own compositions. He has since won several prizes for his conducting and has directed the Isis since its foundation, regularly performing at London's South Bank Centre as well as having major involvement with other orchestras. He has recorded several CDs, and conducted performances of both his own music and that of other composers on radio and television.
The Isis Ensemble performs a very wide range of music from Bach through the classical and romantic repertoire to the present day. As this year is the centenary of Benjamin Britten's birth the programme includes the club's tribute to this English composer. Carsington Water was composed by Jacques to commemorate a Nottingham musician and has not been heard outside London.
The soloists for Britten's Serenade are Stephen Stirling ( Horn ) and John McMunn ( Tenor)
Purcell (arr. Britten) Chacony
Britten Simple Symphony
Britten Serenade -- with tenor & horn soloists
