    Spring concert by Exeter Philharmonic Choir
    Andrew Millington, Exeter Philharmonic Choir, The Sinfonietta
    Exeter Cathedral Exeter EX1 1HS
    United Kingdom

    We feature two contrasting works in this concert:

    Poulenc’s sense of fun and mischief shines through his setting of the Gloria. He said of the piece: “I had in mind those frescoes by Gozzoli where the angels stick out their tongues; and also some serious Benedictine monks I had once seen revelling in a game of football.” One of Poulenc’s friends said: “There is in him something of the monk and the street urchin.” And the Gloria certainly expresses both solemnity and mischievous exuberance with some exquisite settings for solo soprano, well suited to the voice of Catherine Hamilton.

    Elgar’s The Music Makers offers a complete contrast. Many will be familiar with quotations from the work: snatches of Nimrod, Sea Pictures and The Dream of Gerontius (it’s more difficult to make out quotations from the Marseillaise and Rule Britannia) and everybody knows the phrases, “Dreamers of dreams” and “Movers and shakers”. The Music Makers is both electrifying and contemplative with dramatic interplay between the mezzo-soprano, choir and orchestra. The choir is excited about performing the work with Margaret McDonald, renowned international singer and voice coach, well known for her interpretation of Elgar’s music.

    The Sinfonietta completes the programme withFauré’s Masques et Bergamasques. Fauré took his inspiration from the Commedia dell’arte tradition of Harlequin and Pierrot so the work has a strong thread of humour running through it. It was said at the time that the music sounded like “Mozart imitating Fauré”. The style, like much of Fauré’s music, is light and effortless, yet suggests a deeper understanding of the world.

    Gloria
    Francis Poulenc (1899-1963)
    The Music Makers
    Sir Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

    The Vaults London SE1 7NN
    United Kingdom

    Sex. It’s everywhere, around every corner, waiting right there in your pocket… and Giovanni just can’t resist. Stuck in his own vicious cycle of lust and disappointment, alcohol and addiction, Silent Opera invites an audience to witness, and partake in, our charming anti-hero’s self-destructive descent into hell.

    Silent Opera’s brand new digitally re-mastered re-working of Mozart’s ultimate bad-boy – Don Giovanni – explores the increasingly digitised world of modern sex. What’s the drug? Sex? Anonymity? Speed? There’s only one way to find out, and the first hit is free. Our audience are more than mere spectators – they are both Giovanni’s prey and his competitors.

    Through a mobile app specifically created for the performance, and only available fully to ticket holders, we invite you to interact live with our performers. Make a profile, flirt, judge, maybe even beat Giovanni at his own game…

    An operatic orgy of drinking, lascivious tricks and tense confrontation, this show leaves you reeling, and always wanting more…

    Don Giovanni
    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
