Post-concert spotlight performance
We were all very sorry that Royal Northern Sinfonia Music Director Lars Vogt was taken ill back in November, and unable to be at Sage Gateshead to perform Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Concerto. The phrase ‘the show must go on’ certainly rang true that evening, however, and we were extremely grateful to Peter Donohoe who travelled up from Oxford at very short notice to perform the concerto to a packed out Sage One with no rehearsal.

Lars was extremely sad about not being able to perform after so much preparation and so we are delighted to inform you that as a special treat he will be performing the ‘Emperor’ Concerto as a post-concert performance at New Year, New Artists on Friday 27 January.

Lara Downes: America Again
FRIDAY 10 FEBRUARY 2017 7:00pm
Greenwich Variations
Downes examines America in these turbulent times through the lens of her own mixed African American and Eastern European background, using a breadth of American music across multiple genres and styles. She calls this music a tribute to the generations of Americans-black and white, men and women, immigrants and pioneers - who have dreamed the impossible, telling the stories of their journeys, loves and longings, hardships and hopes.

Exploring themes of slavery and freedom, Mighty River combines contemporary classical techniques with spirituals which were introduced to Hull in 1871 by the Fisk Jubilee Singers – an African-American a cappella choir of ex-slaves. The piece, written for orchestra, takes its inspiration from William Wilberforce the English politician, philanthropist and leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade who was, very fittingly, a native of Hull. Errollyn Wallen has been elected Honorary Fellow of Mansfield College, Oxford, in recognition of her distinguished contribution to scholarship in the field of contemporary British music and her exceptional achievements as a composer. Conferment took place on Feb. 6th 2015 followed by a talk by Errollyn.
