Daniel Patrick Cohen: Reciprocity (first performance)



Reciprocity is a 28’ chamber work for voice, taped narration, eight celli, piano, and percussion. This exciting piece is being developed by the composer Daniel Patrick Cohen from six poems by Darya Farha, a Canadian poet, therapist, filmmaker and clothing designer who died of breast cancer in 2011. She was 46.

Reciprocity is not about cancer and this work is not intended as a personal tribute. Instead, its human and universal themes of joy, pleasure, fear and anger and intriguing instrumentation will engage a broad audience.

The poem The Birds of Mexico will be the centrepiece of Reciprocity, and it will close with an arrangement of ‘Spirit of God’, a hymn written by Sister Miriam Therese Winter for the Medical Mission Sisters. Other poems include What Can't Be Helped and We Were Always Modern.

Kathleen Ferrier - Whattalife!

Lucy Stevens, contralto

Professional actress and contralto, Lucy Stevens has created a new one-woman play with music. The text is taken from Kathleen Ferrier’s own letters and diaries, with sung music from her repertoire woven through it. This charming, poignant and delightful show portrays the private side of Kathleen's life: her debut as a singer in 1940 , her meteoric rise and her tragic death in 1953.

Lucy Stevens and Whattalife! were featured on ‘Music Matters’on BBC Radio 3. “Lucy Stevens is brilliant, has Kathleen Ferrier perfectly, and is a fine musician too” (Christopher Fifield, conductor, music historian and editor of Letters and Diaries of Kathleen Ferrier).

Picnic Jazz with John Etheridge's Sweet Chorus

Sweet Chorus
John Etheridge, guitar
Christian Garrick, violin
Dave Kelbie, guitar
Andy Crowdy, double bass

John Etheridge formed Sweet Chorus in 1998 as a personal tribute to Stephane Grappelli, the greatest violinist of Jazz, with whom he had toured for many years in the late 70s and early 80s.

The band takes its cue from the great Reinhardt/Grappelli repertoire of 1930s classics but is in no way a slavish imitation of that music.

Inspired by Grappelli’s always questing spirit the band evinces dazzling forays into repertoire from all periods ..always engaging and committed.

£35 Family ticket available on www.lauderdalehouse.co.uk
Bring along your picnic basket and your blanket for a chance to enjoy John Etheridge's Sweet Chorus perform on Lauderdale's Tea Lawn.

Ends at 9.30pm.
