Event description
Orion Orchestra and Strand Consort perform Fauré (Requiem), Bach (Brandenburg Concerto No.6), and Rowland-Jones (World Première)

About this event

Join us for this special concert of choral works with orchestra - a 2021 programme of hope and reflection, bringing together two of London's most dynamic ensembles for young musicians: the Orion Orchestra and the Strand Consort (drawn from alumni of London institutions, notably the Choir of King's College, London), as well as a stellar line-up of soloists. Gary Matthewman conducts.

Full Programme:

Simon Rowland-Jones

- Smile, O voluptuous cool-breath'd Earth! (World Première)

J.S. Bach

- Brandenburg Concerto No.6 BWV 1051

--- INTERVAL ---

Gabriel Fauré

- Requiem Op.48 (1893 version)

Soloists: Gemma Summerfield - soprano; Julien Van Mellaerts - baritone; Jonathan Stone - violin; Rebecca Chambers, Carol Ella - violas

Conductor: Gary Matthewman

This programme explores the rich sound-world of orchestral ensemble without violins, and includes two well-known and much-loved works: Gabriel Fauré's Requiem (presented here in its intimate 1893 'original' chamber orchestra version) and the Brandenburg Concerto No.6 by J.S. Bach.

We are also very excited to present the WORLD PREMIÈRE of a specially commissioned choral work with solo soprano, conceived as a companion work to the Fauré: Simon Rowland-Jones's setting of a text from Walt Whitman's 'Song of Myself' - Smile, O voluptuous cool-breath'd Earth!
