Bakewell Town Hall Chamber Series: March – June 2017. We welcome members of the world-famous Halle Orchestra to Bakewell for a series of chamber music concerts. First up is a concert on the March 31st featuring the oboe and string trio, playing music by Mozart, Moeran and Dohnanyi. The Mozart Oboe Quartet is one of the great pieces written for this lovely instrument and has a genial and happy character, presenting the oboe in a virtuosic display supported by the string players around him. E.J. Moeran was an English composer, with strong Irish links. His Fantasy Quartet for oboe and strings emphasizes the beautiful singing quality of the instrument, and evokes a strong pastoral content in this haunting piece, reflecting the music and moods of the Norfolk countryside, where it was written. The Hungarian composer Dohnanyi wrote his powerful Serenade Opus 10 for string trio in 1902. It’s a five movement work with vigorous rhythmic energy and an exotic Magyar character, with rich sonorities and melody harking back to the late Romanticism of the previous era. The second concert on April 28th will feature two string quartets and the famous String Quintet with 2 cellos, by Schubert. This work is revered as one of the greatest pieces of chamber music ever written and is certainly much loved by cellists everywhere. Alongside this will be the delightful Haydn String Quartet – ‘The Lark’ so called because of the soaring melodies in the first violin part. In addition Hugo Wolf’s Italian Serenade is a witty and lyrical short piece. More famous as a composer of Lieder, like Schubert, this is one of the few instrumental works he composed. On June 22nd we will complete the series with music by Beethoven and Bach. The famous Goldberg Variations transcribed for String Trio will be the feature work in the programme. This is a wonderful version of Bach’s hugely popular keyboard work. Alongside this will be one of Beethoven’s great Opus 9 string trios. In these works his writing for strings really comes into its own, and paves the way for his later compositions for string quartet, which spanned his whole life. All the musicians performing for you in this series play with the Halle Orchestra, either as members, former members or regular guests. They all love to play chamber music in their spare time alongside their busy professional schedules, and are committed to bringing high quality chamber music to you, on your doorstep. As the Arts are increasingly poorly funded, there is an urgent need to start up small series such as this one. For this we need your support. Please welcome these hard-working, dedicated musicians to your centre and enjoy the opportunity to listen to and meet these fine musicians in the relaxed setting of Bakewell Town Hall. All concerts start at 7.30pm. Doors are open from 7pm. Tickets can be booked through Bakewell Town Hall Box Office (£12/£10) 01629 810152. The bar will be open for interval drinks.
