Charles Dance, celebrated English actor, will join the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (CSO) on their forthcoming European tour to perform Aaron Copland’s Lincoln Portrait at the Edinburgh International Festival, BBC Proms and San Sebastián.
…….. 

Photo by Mike Marsland/WireImage

“I am thrilled to be performing this historic work with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra as part of their European tour. Past performances of the work have included speakers of high esteem, and I am delighted to be joining that list. I look forward to performing with the CSO as they make their debut performances at the Edinburgh International Festival, BBC Proms and San Sebastián’s Musical Fortnight festival.” – Charles Dance OBE
Lincoln Portrait, Copland’s tribute to the former US President, was premiered by the CSO in 1942 at the height of World War II, and retains a special significance for the orchestra, having been performed by many notable orators throughout the last century. The ‘tone poem’ features extracts of Lincoln’s speeches, accompanied by a full symphony orchestra in a dramatic and poignant interpretation.
…….. 
Charles Dance OBE was formerly a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and has subsequently become a household name among the British acting establishment. His numerous film roles include Gosford Park (2001), The Imitation Game (2014), Me Before You (2016) and Ghostbusters (2016). More recently, Dance starred as Tywin Lannister in HBO’s Game of Thrones, before meeting his (**spoilers**) death at the hands of his son, Tyrion.

We are delighted to announce that the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra will be performing at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 27th August as part of the 2017 BBC Proms programme.

Led by Musical Director Louis Langrée, the programme for the evening will be in keeping with the CSO’s history of championing American music, with a performance of Leonard Bernstein’s ‘Symphonic Suite’ from On the Waterfront, a highly descriptive symphonic portrait of New York City. In 1942, at the height of World War Two, the CSO premiered Aaron Copland’s ‘Lincoln Portrait’ written as a musical tribute to the former president, and will perform it again with a special guest speaker to be announced soon. Tchaikovsky’s majestic Symphony No. 5 will conclude the second half of the concert.

Founded in 1895, the CSO is the sixth oldest orchestra in the United States, and the first to be broadcast to a national radio audience in 1921. This concert coincides with an extensive European tour in which the CSO will visit countries including Scotland, Spain, and others to be announced soon.

Details of all concerts and events in the 2017 Proms season were announced today. Tickets are now available to purchase from the Royal Albert Hall website.

Last night, Kat, Olivia, James and Eliza attended the BBC Music Magazine Awards at Kings Place in London.

After a couple of glasses of fizz, we began the awards ceremony.  Oliver Condy, Editor of BBC Music Magazine, hobbled on stage to open proceedings, explaining how crowd-surfing at a Couperin-fuelled rave was the cause of his broken ankle a month before. Oliver then introduced his co-presenter Sara Mohr-Pietsch, (standing in for James Naughtie), and things got underway.  See below for a summary of winners.

We were especially delighted to attend to see our client, Accentus Music, pick up the Best DVD Award.  Paul Smaczny, Director of Accentus Music and producer of the winning release of Berg’s Wozzeck was there to accept the award.  He gave his heartfelt thanks to his team, and read the following from soloist Christian Gerhaher:  “I feel so incredibly satisfied that this Wozzeck production, which was—and every director should please forgive me—the most exhilarating in my life, receives the greatest acclamation. The result of visualising this extraordinary staging in that simple but nearly fully conveying way is just admirable. It brings to life the wonderful months that we and the audience spent with Berg’s masterwork one and half years ago. I would definitely call this a defining criterion of opera DVDs. Thank you all!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Special guest presenters included all-round fahionista and style guru, Gok Wan, who recently released his own curated album of opera entitled ‘Gok’s Divas’.  Comedian Alastair McGowan tickled the audience with a series of stunning impressions and tenuous puns, before presenting Best Instrumental Award to Mahan Esfahani for his recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. With his customary loud-mouth, Mahan gave an impassioned and thoughtful acceptance speech, leaving us with a call to action: ‘Extend classical music, and it will be limitless in what it gives back to you.’

Dame Joan Bakewell, who presented the Recording of the Year Award offered a thought-provoking address on the great value the BBC has in the classical music world, and the impact it had on her own appreciation of music. She announced the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic with Vasily Petrenko performing Tchaikovsky Symphonies as Recording of the Year.

Throughout the evening, a number of references were made to the Proms Launch, which takes place today. BBC Radio 3 Controller, Alan Davey, slightly let the cat out of the bag when he said there would be lots of concerts in a big round hall.  Unfortunately, we can’t confirm this at the moment, but watch this space.
