Description

The Art of Transcription will showcase a selection of works arranged for Cello & Piano, in a recital of two halves performed by rising cellist Patrick Johnson and composer-pianist Louis Mander at Beaudesert Park School Performing Arts Centre.

The first half of the recital will include works in arrangement by J.C Bach, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Schumann and Dvorak. The second half will be a foray into the works composed throughout the eras for solo cello, including works by J.S Bach and Cassado.


Patrick Johnson Cello

For two seasons, Patrick was principal cello for the National Theatre’s critically-acclaimed revival of Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus. He has worked with many major UK orchestras, including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra; and as a member of Southbank Sinfonia, the Royal Opera House, BBC Concert Orchestra, and Academy of St-Martin-in-the-Fields. He has performed under the batons of many eminent conductors, including Sir Antonio Pappano, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Marin Alsop, John Wilson and Yuri Temirkanov.

Additionally, he was principal cello in a very memorable concert in the Royal Albert Hall with hard rock legends Deep Purple, and has also performed with Damon Albarn, Bruce Dickinson, Tony Hadley and Goldfrapp. He also regularly plays principal cello for Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre in the West End.

Patrick has appeared in recital with many celebrated musicians, including the pianists Leslie Howard and Mark Viner, and the cellist Giovanni Sollima. A passionate promoter of new music, he has given world premieres of many works for solo cello, plus many more chamber works; he is also the dedicatee of Logos, a new concerto by the composer Marc Yeats.

Patrick plays on a mysterious 18th-century cello, believed to be Italian and converted from a five-string violoncello piccolo; this is strung with gut strings by Eudoxa and Oliv, and paired with a very fine French bow by Charles Nicolas Bazin.


Louis Mander Piano

British composer Louis Mander trained at The Royal College of Music in London and Birmingham University. His music is internationally performed and includes a prolific output of chamber opera and music for film. Recent premieres have been commissioned by the Oslo Opera House and Surrey Opera in productions of his opera The Life to Come, for which the actor & writer Stephen Fry wrote the libretto. He is a regular recital accompanist and has been working with singers and instrumentalists alike, most recently forming a recital duo with baritone Rodney Earl Clarke. Future commissions include a symphonic work and a new song cycle, A Rondel of Gloucestershire which will premiere in the Autumn of 2019 in London.
