Event description

Description

To celebrate the WWI centenary ROSL ARTS present a series of concerts celebrating the music and musicians of the era through three varied concerts.

We will begin our series of concerts on Thursday 1 November with a chamber concert featuring our Annual Music Competition prizewinners from past and present, including the 2018 Tait Memorial Scholarship for an Outstanding Australian Musician, Jonathan Ferrucci playing Le Tombeau de Couperin.

Taking place on Monday 5 November our second concert of the series will feature 2017 Accompanist prizewinner, Gamal Khamis, alongside actor Christopher Kent in their show NEVER SUCH INNOCENCE. They will look back at the writing and music that emerged from the period, juxtaposing the words of writers like Wilfred Owen, Edward Thomas, Siegfried Sassoon and Vera Brittain with piano music by composers such as Elgar, Ravel, Debussy, Frank Bridge and Ivor Gurney. In a moving and thought-provoking sequence, they trace a narrative from the early innocence and nostalgia of pre-war life, through initial patriotic optimism, to the growing realisation of what was happening at the front and the deep sadness and loss that followed across Europe. As well as poetry the programme will include extracts from letters, diaries and contemporary accounts, plus material drawn from personal family history.

The series will be rounded off by a performance by the London Military Band on Thursday 8 November, who will perform well known songs from the wartime including Danny Boy, Chanson de Matin and Greesleeves.
