Mozart in Cuba

Market Theatre, Ledbury

Ledbury , HR8 2AQ

Strings and piano What is the connection between Mozart and Cuba? Cuba is politically, geographically, religiously, ethnically and culturally extraordinary so it is no surprise that its music reflects all of this. A heady brew of influences from West Africa and Europe - most notably Spain - have created a musical cauldron of unusual and compelling flavours, fusing elements of Jazz, Mambo, Conga, Classical, Flamenco, Abakua, Hip-Hop and Salsa. This concert is a journey into that astoundingly diverse melting pot of sounds with frequent unexpected diversions into the repertoire of Mozart. In case you were wondering, there is no connection between Mozart and Cuba.

In Memoriam

St Leonards Church Yarpole

nr Leominster , HR6 0BD

String and wind principals from OOTS perform English and French music from the first half of the 20th century. Maurice Ravel's Tombeau de Couperin is based on the structure of a traditional baroque suite with each movement bearing a dedicaton to a friend of the composer who died fighting in the First World War. Composed between the wars in 1932 Finzi's Interlude for Oboe and Strings possesses all the intimate, personal and melancholic qualities of his immediately recognisable style. London-born Arnold Bax developed a passionate interest in Ireland, it people and its complex political situation. He was deeply shocked by the outcome of the Easter Rising in 1916. In Memoriam was originally titled An Irish Elegy and expresses his personal grief and depth of feeling about the appalling tragedy. String quartet with flute, oboe, cor anglais and harp
