    Charles Tebbs plays Bach's Goldberg Variations
    Charles Tebbs
    Sutton House London E9 6JQ
    United Kingdom

    Dr Charles Tebbs has recently recorded the entire Goldberg Variations, probably Bach’s most loved and revered piece for keyboard. A rare opportunity to hear this astounding and moving piece in the intimate surroundings of Sutton House. Preceded by a brief introduction to the work by Penelope Roskell.

    Sutton House is one of London’s most attractive concert venues. Our aim is to provide the highest quality of music-making at affordable prices in relaxed and pleasant surroundings. Refreshments are available in the conservatory before the concert and during the interval.

    Sutton House is owned by the National Trust. Built in 1535, the house holds a fascinating juxtaposition of oak-panelled Tudor rooms, Jacobean wall paintings and Georgian and Victorian interiors.

    Goldberg Variations
    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

    Ensemble BPM : Three Tales - Steve Reich, visuals by Beryl Korot
    Synergy Vocals
    IMAX Theatre, Science Museum, London SW7 2DD
    United Kingdom

    Ensemble BPM presents Three Tales, a video opera exploring three momentous scientific events from the twentieth century that examines our deepening relationship with technology; the crash of the Hindenburg zeppelin in 1937, nuclear bomb tests on Bikini Atoll in 1946–1958, and the cloning of Dolly the Sheep in 1996.

    It features live orchestra and singers, sampled audio, re-processed historical film and interviews with prescient cultural thinkers to create an immersive piece of multimedia that examines technology’s growing dominance in society.

    It was created by Grammy Award-winning composer Steve Reich – whose work has influenced countless artists and composers including John Adams, Brian Eno and Sufjan Stevens – and pioneering video artist Beryl Korot.

    Ensemble BPM is only the second group to stage Three Tales since the work’s 2002 premiere. It's showing at the Science Museum’s IMAX Theatre for two nights only and also features a Q&A.

    The production is conducted by Artistic Director Nick Sutcliffe, directed by Matthew Eberhardt and produced by Amanda Carrick. It is supported by the Science Museum, Arts Council England, AHRC and The Hinrichsen Foundation.

    The work is presented in association with a conference at the Institute of Historical Research entitled Being Modern: Science and Culture in the Early Twentieth Century, led by Dr Robert Bud, Keeper of Science and Medicine at the Science Museum. Performances take place on 22 and 24 April 2015 – the former date marking the centenary of the first use of chemical weapons in warfare.

    Hertfordshire Chamber Orchestra with Graham Ross
    Graham Ross, Hertfordshire Chamber Orchestra

    The church of St Mary-at-Hill has a fascinating history and while the current church, partially built by Sir Christopher Wren, dates from 1677, there has been a church on the site since 1177. Some other snippets about this fascinating church: at the beginning of the 20th century the ministry at St Mary-at-Hill was led by Wilson Carlile, founder of the Church Army; the church has a long and fine musical tradition and boasts a magnificent organ; the whole building was beautifully restored following a disastrous fire in 1988. Please look at the church's own website for more information. but most importantly, please come to the church on 19 April and see for yourself while listening to our concert.

A composer and conductor of a very broad range of repertoire, he has had works performed throughout Europe and beyond. A passionate believer in the unveiling of both unjustly-neglected and newly-written works, he has given numerous first performances as both a pianist and conductor of a very broad spectrum of composers.

    Forthcoming projects in 2015 include new commissions for Gallipoli Foundation and Novello publications; three CD releases on the Harmonia Mundi USA label: Shostakovich/Rudolf Barshai Chamber Symphonies with The Dmitri Ensemble, Ascendit Deus: Music for Ascensiontide and Pentecost and Victoria Requiem: Music for All Saints and All Souls, and with the Choir of Clare College; conducting work across the USA with the Choir of Clare College; performances of James MacMillan’s Seven Last Words from the Cross with The Dmitri Ensemble, Haydn Die Schöpfung for Musique Cordiale Festival, Handel Messiah with the Orchestra of the Age of Englightenment, and return invitations to Covent Garden Chamber, Hertfordshire Chamber and RCM Symphony Orchestras.
