Synopsis

The Hardynge Choir present an exciting programme of music for choir, combined children’s choir, two pianos and percussion together with three outstanding soloists, conducted by our Musical Director, Rufus Frowde, featuring:


Nathan Daughtrey - Sizzle!

Schubert - Licht und Liebe, D352 (1816)

Schubert - Nacht und Träume, D827 (1822)

Mendelssohn – Die Nachtigall from Sechs Lieder, Op. 59 No. 4

Hensel – Morgengruss from Gartenlieder, Op. 3 No. 4

Carl Orff - Carmina Burana


The soloists are: Ildiko Allen – Soprano; Peter Martin – Tenor, Thomas Isherwood - Bass Baritone; with Matthew Woodward and Linden Innes-Hopkins – pianos; and The Rosewood Ensemble - percussion.


Daughtrey’s Sizzle! is a lively percussion piece.


Licht und Liebe (Light and Love), D352, a duet for tenor and soprano, is one of the only two duets that Schubert wrote.


Nacht und Träume (Night and Dreams), D827, a song for baritone, is rated as one of Schubert’s most beautiful songs.


Die Nachtigall (The Nightingale) and Morgengruss (Morning Greeting), are two delightful songs for choir by Felix Mendelssohn and his sister, Fanny Hensel.


The ever-popular Carmina Burana is a scenic cantata composed by Carl Orff in 1935 and 1936, based on 24 poems from the collection (discovered in a Bavarian monastery in 1803) of pieces by 12th and 13th century wandering students, written variously in Latin verse, Middle High German and Old Provençal. It is full of life and vitality, anger, splendidly earthy desires, revolt against the rigidity of medieval times, parody and lusty enjoyment of life.
