From Russia With Love

Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra Programme: Khachaturian Adagio from Spartacus Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor Stravinsky Petrushka Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra Michael Bell Conductor Martin James Bartlett - Piano The centre-piece of this concert is the most beloved of all concertos, Rachmaninovs Piano Concerto No. 2, a work that is equally associated with Russian romance as it is with steam trains and the classic British film Brief Encounter. Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra is thrilled to welcome the 2014 BBC Young Musician of the Year, Martin James Bartlett as soloist. Violinist Nicola Benedetti has spoken of Martin as a natural and powerful musician, he lives and breathes music. Stravinskys ballet Petrushka is set at a Russian shrovetide fair, and its his most colourful work. All is well until three puppets are brought to life The concert opens with more ballet music, the sumptuous Adagio from Khachaturians Spartacus. If Rachmaninovs Piano Concerto No. 2 conjures images of steam trains then the Adagio from Spartacus owes its immense popularity to the great sailing ships of TVs The Onedin Line. http://r17.wales/whats-on/music/1161/ Tickets: 6.50 | 9.50 | 11.50 | 17.50 | 23.50 Concessions available - please see website for more info 16 - 22 years olds: 8.50 Plus an optional 1 postage fee.

Winter Journey

Spend your Sunday afternoon with a glass of bubbly and the Jónsson-Kim duo as they present Schubert's Winterreise (Winter Journey) in the magical and intimate setting of the Shoreditch Treehouse, where you can enjoy classical music in a non-formal environment. Winterreise - Winter Journey - was written a year before the end of Schubert’s short life. Based on poems by Wilhelm Müller, the piece is a cycle of 24 songs for voice and piano. The wanderer's winter journey begins as he leaves the house of his beloved and travels through a winter landscape that leads him to question his identity, the conditions of his existence and the meaning of life. The second half is filled with hope and despair, ending with him sharing his misery with a beggar street musician - the hurdy gurdy man. About Oddur and Somi Icelandic baritone Oddur Jónsson graduated from the Mozarteum University Salzburg with Distinction, receiving the Lilli Lehmann Medal. Oddur made his Icelandic Opera debut as Rodrigo in Verdi’s Don Carlo, and was awarded Most Promising Artist in at the Icelandic Music Awards. Significant operatic roles include Wolfram in Tannhäuser, Figaro in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Don Giovanni and Conte Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro. On the concert stage he made his Paris debut in 2015, singing Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with the Paris Opera Ballet. Competition successes include first prize in the International Brahms Competition (2013), Best Lied & Oratorio Performer and Schubert Prizes in the Francesc Viñas Competition (2014), and third prize in the International Schubert Lied-Duo Competition in Dortmund. South Korean born New Zealand pianist, Somi Kim graduated from the Royal Academy of Music last year, receiving a DipRAM and the HRH Princess Alice the Duchess of Gloucester’s Prize. Somi is the winner of the 2017 Royal Over-Seas League Accompanist Prize, Gerald Moore Award for Accompanists and the AESS Patricia Routledge National English Song Accompanist Prize. Sought after as a chamber musician, song accompanist and répétiteur, Somi is a Samling Artist and a Yeoman of the Worshipful Company of Musicians. In recital, Somi’s recent and future appearances include Het Concertgebouw, Slovak Philharmonic, Wigmore Hall, and St. John’s Smith Square.
