Peasmarsh Festival: Opening Concert

Bartholomew joins Kristian Bezuidenhout, Jonian Ilias Kadesha, Lilli Maijala, Richard Lester, Anthony Marwood, Vashti  Hunter, Derek Gripper and Gilles Vonsattel in the opening concert of 2019’s Peasmarsh Festival.

  • Schubert         Adagio and Rondo Concertante in F major, D.487

  • Cherubini        String Quintet in E minor

  • Fauré               Piano Quartet No. 1 in C minor

Cherubini’s rarely performed Classical masterpiece contrasts beautifully with Fauré’s unerringly elegant Romantic piano quartet. The concert opens with Schubert’s Adagio and Rondo Concertante of 1816, a pianistic tour de force and his first composition for piano and string ensemble.

Peasmarsh Festival: Early Evening Concert

Bartholomew joins Kristian Bezuidenhout, Gilles Vonsattel, Anthony Marwood, Jonian Ilias Kadesha, Richard Lester and Lilli Maijala

  • Brahms           Waltzes for piano, four hands, Op. 39

  • Schoenberg    Chamber Symphony No. 1 in E major, Op. 9 (arr. Webern)

  • Schubert         String Quintet in C major, D. 956

Schoenberg’s 1906 Chamber Symphony was ground-breaking in its modernism and even provoked a riot at one of its early performances. It is performed here in the chamber arrangement made by his pupil Anton Webern. The great ‘Cello Quintet’ was Schubert’s final chamber work. Completed in 1828 just six weeks before the composer’s death, it remains one of the most evocatively beautiful musical creations.

Peasmarsh Festival: Late Night Concert

Bartholomew joins Derek Gripper, Anthony Marwood, Richard Lester and Lilli Maijala.

Having made a particular study of the music of Mali and transcribed much of its virtuosic kora repertoire to solo guitar, Derek Gripper is joined by Anthony, Richard and other festival artists in a new ensemble work based on the Manding Empire’s classic composition Poyi, reputed to be the origin of the blues style and the generative piece for much of West Africa’s later repertoire.

Peasmarsh Festival: Finale

Bartholomew joins Anthony Marwood, Richard Lester, Kristian Bezuidenhout, Jonian Ilias Kadesha, Lilli Maijala, Vashti Hunter, Gilles Vonsattell and Derek Gripper

  • Beethoven      Piano Trio in G major, Op. 121a ‘Kakadu Variations’

  • Carter              String Trio

  • Schumann      Adagio and Allegro for cello and piano, Op. 70

  • Brahms           Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Op. 25

Beethoven’s Kakadu Variations – an early work, although much revised – was ultimately his final piano trio to be published. Elliott Carter’s string trio has been described by Charles Rosen as a ‘…dramatic and satisfying work’. Composed in the year before his death, the trio promotes the viola to the primary voice in the ensemble. Robert Schumann’s touching and spirited Adagio and Allegro was written to exploit the newly developed valve horn, with alternative solo parts for violin, viola or cello. The work delighted Clara Schumann when she gave the first performance. Also premiered by Clara, the young Brahms’s extravagant G minor piano quartet explores the extremes of virtuosity and emotion, closing the festival with its famous rousing ‘Gypsy’ finale.
