Our 2019/20  season

 

23rd November 2019

On Saturday 23rd November the players of The Chiltern Camerata make a welcome return to the Amersham Free Church for the first in its 2019/20 season of concerts.
The concert, under the baton of guest conductor Simon Walton, is themed ‘Dance’ and includes music by Brahms, Piazzolla, Parry, Rautavaara and Anna Semple.  Tickets are available as per the poster above, and also via Ticket Source.

Concert details and Programme:
Reflecting the theme ‘Dance’, the concert includes compositions by Brahms, Parry, Piazzolla and Rautavaara

Brahms is represented by his ever-popular ‘Liebeslieder’ Waltzes. Originally for voice and piano, these are performed in an arrangement for strings.

Parry’s contribution is in the form of his gorgeous ‘English Suite’ for strings, composed in 1914

Early English music of Purcell brings a suite of dances from The Fairy Queen, arranged by Simon Walton

The atmosphere heats up with dance music by the vibrant Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla in special arrangements by Simon Walton.

The entertainment continues with a vivacious suite ‘Fiddlers’ composed in 1952 by the Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara.

The talented young composer Anna Semple has also written ‘Tango’ for the orchestra, which will receive its first public performance at this concert

Audiences have come to expect something a little different from the Chiltern Camerata and this concert is no exception. The emphasis is on fun and this fine ensemble is sure to delight the audience.
