Haydn Creation Performers

 

 

 

 

 

 Two distinguished, long-established musical ensembles will come together to perform Haydn’s masterpiece Creation for a special Lord Mayor’s Concert in Exeter Cathedral.. Exeter Philharmonic Choir, the city’s oldest choral ensemble, will be joined by world-class musicians from the UK’s longest-established chamber orchestra, The London Mozart Players who are celebrating their 70th anniversary this year.

 Haydn’s Creation is acknowledged as some of the most rewarding and powerful music in the Western canon. He composed it with a broad palette of instrumental colours, directing large orchestral forces in specific and subtle ways.

 The audience in Devon will also be treated to performances from three top-class international soloists who sing with ensembles such as The Sixteen and Westminster Abbey Choir: Soprano Kirsty Hopkins, Tenor Mark Dobell, and Bass James Gower.

Rossini Petite Messe solennelle

Exeter Northcott Theatre

 

 Exeter Philharmonic Choir's summer concert combines musical drama and colourful, memorable tunes. Rossini’s Mass is a work of contrast and intensity. Despite its title, it is neither ‘small’ nor ‘solemn’ but reflects his great operatic talent. In Brahms’ love songs, possibly inspired by his devotion to Clara Schumann, the composer blends north German folk tunes with the waltz and ländler rhythms of Austria.

The four soloists, Clare Tunney (soprano), Giulia Laudano (mezzo-soprano), Ryan Williams (tenor) and William Pate (bass-baritone), are all supported by the Josephine Baker Trust. Soloists and choir are accompanied by a trio of musicians who have greatly contributed to Exeter’s musical life: David Davies and Andrew Millington (piano) and Stephen Tanner (harmonium).
