AMATIS PIANO TRIO
Friday, 23 June 2017

AmatisPianoTrioWeb.jpg

“The Amatis Piano Trio is an outstanding ensemble on the way to establishing a great international career.”
Prof. Daniel Hope (Beaux Arts Trio).
Praise indeed from a member of a Piano Trio that has set the gold standard over the last 50 years.

Recently included in the BBC New Generation Artists Scheme and winners of the 2015 Parkhouse Award in the Wigmore Hall, London, the Amatis Piano Trio was founded in Amsterdam in 2013 by German violinist Lea Hausmann, British cellist Samuel Shepherd and Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han. Only weeks after forming, the trio won the audience prize at the Grachtenfestival-Concours in Amsterdam, which quickly lead to their debut at the Royal Concertgebouw and concert engagements throughout the Netherlands. 

The concert opens with two compelling early works; the 'Grassenhauer' Piano Trio Op.11 composed by Beethoven at the age of 28 and Shostakovich Piano Trio No. 1 written when he was a mere 16 year old student. This is followed by Suk’s beautiful Elegy Op.23, dating from 1902, a work which gives full voice to the composer’s rich lyricism. Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio in D minor, Op.49 No.1, completes the programme; described by Robert Schumann in 1840 as “the most masterly piano trio of the present day”.


Concert starts at 7.30pm

JULIAN BLISS SEPTET

Happy, exciting, intense – Latin music has it all

Opening the 2017 Shaldon Festival, we are delighted to welcome Julian Bliss and his Septet (clarinet/trumpet/piano/bass/drums/percussion). British born musician, Julian Bliss is one of the world’s finest and versatile clarinettists excelling as a concerto soloist, chamber musician, jazz artist, masterclass leader and tireless musical explorer. In 2010 he established the Julian Bliss Septet to pursue his love of jazz music, creating programmes which he has performed to packed houses in festivals, Ronnie Scott’s (London), the Concertgebouw (Amsterdam) and across the U.S.

In this concert Julian explores the rich world of Latin American music. Dominated by the influences of Cuba and Brazil, this musical heritage stretches back over 200 years with popular styles ranging from the elegant Rumba to the wildly exciting Samba. Julian explores the growth of Latin music from the early days of the Habanera to the complexity of modern Salsa rhythms, including one of the most famous songs in the world La Paloma, the 1940’s classic Besame mucho and the famous Brazilian chorinho (little lament) Tico tico, made famous in films by Walt Disney and Woody Allen.

Concert starts at 7.30pm
