Intimate Engagements chamber music concerts series continues its successful format, in which prominent artists combine performances with informal presentations on selected themes focusing on the performers’ perspectives. This year’s series combines the most intimate ‘voice’ of a single instrument in solo recitals for piano, cello and flute, with a programme for a string orchestra repertoire in an innovative chamber-music format. Innovation will be present also as we inaugurate the new acoustic installation at the College hall with a new work by Jeremy Thurlow written for the occasion.
The series opens with pianist Noriko Ogawa in a programme juxtaposing contemporary works from Japan inspired by master-pieces for piano by Debussy and Liszt. Symphonova Orchestra presents some of the well-known works for string orchestra performed within its inventive context. Renowned cellist Bartholomew LaFollette performs a tour-de-force of repertoire for cello solo by Bach and Britten, and flautist Abigail Dolan presents a journey through time with some of the landmarks of the flute repertoire presented in multiple styles.
We look forward to sharing the experience with you.
