We are please to be working with Classical Movements for The City Choir of Washington’s inaugural tour of the UK this July

The City Choir of Washington celebrate their 10th anniversary under leadership of the Grammy-award winning conductor Robert Shafer, and have built their reputation as one of Washington D.C’s premiere choirs in this time. Under Maestro Shafer’s baton, the singers and their audiences have been challenged by creative programming, creating stunning renditions of under-performed works such as Arvo Part’s ‘Te Deum’, Benjamin Britten’s ‘Cantata Misericordium’, and Tarik O’Regan’s ‘Triptych’. The choir’s roster consists of 120 experienced, professional-calibre singers, all hailing from the greater Washington metropolitan areas.

The choir’s memorable performances include their commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II with a world-premiere performance of John Tavener’s ‘Three Hymns of George Herbert’, written especially for the Diamond Jubilee. In Spring 2014, the Choralis Foundation nominated the City Choir of Washington for an Ovation Award for Most Creative Programming, a nomination which tributes the choir’s premiere performances, including those of the final compositions by the great composer Sir John Tavener.

The City Choir of Washington will bring its distinctive choral sound to the UK in four concerts, performing at venues in London, Gloucester, Ely and Oxford in July 2018. The tour will combine American, English and French choral works spanning the 19th century to present day, including Sir John Tavener’s ‘Tolstoy Creed’ performed alongside ‘The Lamb’, Eric Whitacre’s ‘The Chelsea Carol’ and Gabriel Fauré’s ‘Requiem in D Minor’. Maestro Shafer will celebrate 50 years as a choral conductor, and will serve his 26th international tour with the choir this year.

Details of the concerts and programme schedule are below:

5 July – Gloucester Cathedral, Gloucester
7 July – Keble College Chapel, Oxford
8 July – Ely Cathedral, Ely
11 July – Temple Church, London

Programme:
Psalm 121: I will lift up mine eyes
- Robert Shafer (b.1946)
The Chelsea Carol
- Eric Whitacre (b.1970)

The Lamb – Sir John Tavener (1944-2013)
Tolstoy’s Creed – Sir John Tavener
(2012 Commission by TCCW)
Requiem in D Minor, op. 48 – Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924)

Gediminas Gelgotas is unstoppable: the Lithuanian composer has created numerous works that are still being regularly broadcasted by stations such as Mezzo TV and Boiler Room TV to this day, and he shows no signs of slowing down.

Renowned double-bassist Roman Patkoló joins Gelgotas in his latest work Sanctifaction. Originally the fourth movement of his symphony Extracultural, Gelgotas strips it down for the piano and double-bass this time, and the results are compelling. A haunting and intensive musical experience, now brought to life through this stunning new music video.

The chemistry in the room and between the two are undeniable. Patkoló handles the double-bass rhythmically and melodically like no other – an unusual but mesmerising portrayal of the often-overlooked instrument. The duo makes it inevitably hard for anyone to ignore the contrast between the stunning rhythmic drive and austere, melodic beauty that come into view.

Coming up for Gediminas Gelgotas is the premiere of his Violin Concerto No. 1 at the Kissinger Sommer Festival 2018 with long-time collaborator and conductor Kristjan Järvi, who has earned a reputation as one of the canniest, and most innovative programmers on the classic scene.

Listen to Gediminas Gelgotas’ Sanctifaction on Spotify, Google Play and Deezer.

WildKat PR welcomes new music collective, Corre.

We are very happy to be working with Corre on their upcoming singles and album releases. ‘A Spark, A Beginning’ and ‘Proceed’ will be released on streaming sites on Wednesday 2nd August 2017.

Corre formed earlier in 2017 and aims to bridge the gap between electronica and classical music with a contemporary synthesis of light, movement and sound. The unnamed collaborators behind Corre wanted to create a multi-media, cross-genre alliance, inspired by the likes of Nils Frahm and Max Richter. With a background in electronic music, Corre’s composer was inspired by the possibility that the two seemingly contrasting elements of electronic and contemporary classical music could coalesce.

To create the fusion of natural and synthetic sounds, Corre uses Korg-created synthesiser loops paired with traditional, acoustic instruments such as violin, piano and classical guitar. The visual element takes naturalistic photography and melds it with digital manipulation and overlays to create modern and visually stunning films.

The two singles will be released on 2nd August, with a video premiere of ‘A Spark, A Beginning’ to follow.

100 years ago, on 28 October 1915Eine Alpensinfonie by Richard Strauss was premiered in Berlin by the Dresden Hofkapelle, conducted by the composer. The critics didn’t particularly like it, some even called it ‘cinema music.’

'Eine Alpensinfonie' World Premiere Programme

‘Eine Alpensinfonie’ World Premiere Programme

Strauss’s love of nature greatly influenced this atmospheric composition. For most of his life, Strauss lived in southern Bavaria at the foot of Germany’s highest peak, the Zugspitze. Eine Alpensinfonie portrays the distinct episodes of an alpine trek undertaken by Strauss and friends during which they got lost in a thunderstorm.

Although Strauss labelled the work a symphony, it doesn’t follow the typical conventions of a multi-movement symphony. The work consists of twenty-two continuous sections of music making it technically a tone poem.

Eine Alpensinfonie includes a wide range of instrumental combinations and effects, requiring an orchestra of 123 players. Strauss regarded performing this piece as the equivalent of the challenge of climbing an actual mountain.

Listen to Eine Alpensinfonie, played here by the Dresden Staatskapelle who first premiered this dramatic work on this day 100 years ago!
