Concert for a Good Cause

Alerting you not to dance but something related… a delightful recital coming up this weekend by pianist Henry Roche, an old friend, formerly Principal Pianist and Head of Music at the Royal Ballet, playing a programme of delectable pieces including some by the romantic composer Moscheles from whom Henry is descended, and highlights from the ballet repertoire… The concert is part of the Music at the Limes series run by the Exuberant Trust, which supports young people in Oxfordshire with small grants to help them realise their creative potential in any of the arts.

You will find more information on the Trust’s website here: http://www.exuberant-trust.org.uk/

What nicer way to spend a spring evening… and your attendance and contribution will be greatly appreciated.

See you there!

Two old instruments by Ballet in Small Spaces

Dances, Oracles, Mysteries by Barefoot Opera

The salon piece of 18th century composer and viola da gamba virtuoso Carl Friedrich Abel range in character from exuberant and playful to wistful and melancholic. They are the inspiration for Two old instruments in which Jonathan Rees and Susie Crow reflect on history and memory.

Dances, Oracles, Mysteries features the piano duo Mariko Brown and Julian Jacobson, singer Jenny Miller and dancers Chiara Vinci and Francesco Mangiacasale in evocative response to Debussy’s piano pieces, songs, and the composer’s little know ballet K’hamma, blurring the boundaries between performing disciplines to create a subtle but exhilarating narrative.
