About this event

The Ionian Singers with Timothy Salter (conductor and piano) are joined by Olivia Fraser (oboe) and Jocelyn Coates (soprano) in a programme of French and English music reflecting the passion combined with elegance typical of its period. The English composers include Elgar, Coleridge-Taylor, Vaughan Williams and Maconchy, with French music by Fauré, Debussy, Grovlez and Poulenc. A selection of English folk-songs arranged by Timothy Salter variously for all the performers concludes the concert.

Timothy Salter is active as a composer, conductor and pianist. His compositions include instrumental, chamber, and orchestral music, choral music and songs; many of his choral compositions have been written for The Ionian Singers. He has received publicly and privately funded commissions; his music has been recorded on various labels and broadcast throughout the world. For many years he taught composition and performance studies at the Royal College of Music, London. As a pianist, he performs widely with instrumentalists and singers.

The Ionian Singers is a chamber choir of about 25 singers, based in London, with a national and international reputation based on performances and recordings. They give concerts in London and elsewhere.

The choir is known for its commitment to new music, has given many first performances and has commissioned new works from several British composers.

The programming and recording policy of The Ionian Singers is to search out less familiar and unjustifiably neglected repertoire both sacred and secular from the 16th century to the present.
