Marlborough music lovers given the chance to hear a third season of brilliant young musicians

 

Trio AmicorumTrio AmicorumThe third season of young musicians performing brilliantly at St Peter’s church will be launched with a recital that breaks the run of young solo pianists: the Trio Amicorum will be playing Beethoven and Schnittke on Sunday, 26 October.

The following six recitals will nearly revert to type with a series of brilliant young pianists entertaining audiences in support of the Marlborough Brandt Group and the St Peter’s Trust.  Except that on 23 November the married couple Janneke Britts and James Kreiling, will be giving a piano recital for four hands.

Janneke and James are two of the four young musicians who will make return visits to Marlborough to take part in this series.  Also returning are the young Russian pianist Anna Zassimova (19 April 2015) and John Paul Ekins (18 January 2015.)

Dr Nick Maurice who has brought together all three series of recitals, says it is a privilege to have so many outstanding young musicians wanting to play in Marlborough: “They will be playing on behalf of the Marlborough Brandt Group's work in The Gambia. Not only will we be hearing extraordinarily accomplished young musicians, but we will be contributing to their professional development by enabling them to play at a young age in front of a discerning audience.”

“And they will be contributing to our programme of developing young professionals in Gunjur through the generosity of their Marlborough audiences.”

First the musical talents who will be new to Marlborough:  the Trio Amicourm was formed in September 2011.  All three players are second year undergraduates at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Jonathan Morris (piano) was born in Ireland in 1992.  Hikaru Matsukawa (violin) was also born in 1992, but in Osaka.  And cellist Gamaliel Rendle Traynor was brought up in Cambridge.

Last year they won the Guildhall School’s Ivan Sutton Prize for their outstanding performance of Mendelssohn’s second piano trio.

Solo pianist Erdem Misirlioglu was born in 1989 in Ipswich to a Turkish father and British mother – neither of whom were musicians.  But he started his studies very young and in 2008 won the piano section of the BBC’s Young Musician of the Year competition.

His St Peter’s recital is on 14 December when he will be playing works by Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin and Debussy’s Preludes Book 1.

Louise CournarieLouise CournarieLouise Cournarie is an accomplished young French pianist who performs regularly in Paris and London.  She has been studying with Professor Charles Owen at the Guildhall and will shortly be starting a postgraduate degree course at the Royal Academy.  Her recital is on 10 May 2015 and she will be playing Bach, Scriabin, Mozart and Schubert.

The final recital of this series will bring the Swiss pianist Jean-Sélim Abdelmoula to St Peter’s church for the first time – on 14 June 2015.  He has recently been awarded an Artist Diploma with distinction by the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He will be playing Beethoven, Jancek and Chopin.

Janneke and JamesJanneke and JamesThe recitals by the four returning virtuosos begin with Janneke Britts and James Kreiling.  They have both given solo piano recitals in Marlborough and they have both studied with Charles Owen at the Guildhall.  But they only met later at a music festival in Switzerland – they married in 2011.

They will be playing Holst’s own arrangement for four hands of his much-loved orchestral suite The Planets.  Their programme will also include Ravel’s Rhapsodie Espagnol and an arrangement of Stravinsky’s revolutionary The Rite of Spring.

John Paul Ekins last played at St Peter’s church in January 2013.  Almost exactly two years later he will be returning on 18 January 2015 with a programme that will include Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.  His concert is been given in aid of Save the Children.

Anna ZassimovaAnna ZassimovaAnd last, but by no means least, the Russian-born pianist Anna Zassimova will be returning to Marlborough on 19 April – she last played in St Peter’s in November 2013.  

Then she introduced the audience to the Franco-Russian composer Georges Catoire.  And for this recital she will be playing his Quatres Preludes.  

She will be introducing another composer who may be new to many in the audience: Nikolai Medtner.  He is best known for his sonatas and his series of ‘Fairy Tales’ – and in April Anna will be playing one of his sonatas and a ‘Fairy Tale’.

And, by chance, Louise Cournarie played a Medtner sonata in her Edinburgh Festival recital this week.   It’s the sort of coincidence that crops up with such an international group of brilliant young musicians.

These recitals are made possible by continuing sponsorship from Hiscox Insurance.
