Brabbins + Festival Players

 14 July 2005 at 7:30pm 

Brabbins + Festival Players

Pitville Pump Room, Cheltenham

United Kingdom

Martyn Brabbins conductor
Claire Booth soprano

The Festival Players are a hand-picked group of
internationally acclaimed musicians, invited to
Cheltenham for two outstanding contemporary
concerts and an innovative education project – the
Academy Players (see event 63). Kicking off our closing weekend’s focus on the music of Jonathan Harvey, tonight’s performance includes the contrasting drama of Harvey’s Curve with Plateaux with Schoenberg’s splintered melodrama. These sit alongside a lyrical, jazz-tinged BBC co commission from artist-in-residence Stockhausen, new music from enthralling young talent
Tabakova and an exclusive arrangement of Tchaikovsky piano music by English composer Blackford.

Dobrinka Tabakova : Golden Singers
Jonathan Harvey : Curve with Plateaux
Markus Stockhausen : new work
Arnold Schoenberg : Pierrot Lunaire
