The Casimir Connection

Saxophonist and composer Diane McLoughlin's new ensemble explores the boundaries between classical, folk and jazz. Featuring saxophone, violin, double bass and piano, the music allows space to explore sound and silence. This creates intensity and intimacy, echoing chamber music of the classical tradition. Quiet and brooding, serene and uplifting, with influences from Keith Jarrett to Poulenc, Bartok and Balkan folk music, The Casimir Connection is a jazz chamber group for the modern era.

'McLoughlin can mix a keening tone with a melodic sweetness' - Andy Robson (Jazzwise magazine)

Members of The Meritus Collective

Members of The Meritus Collective

Mozart, arranged Hummel for flute, violin, cello and piano: Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor, K 466

Free Lunchtime Concerts

The recital ends at about 2pm.
The Meritus Collective was established to bring together musicians of all instruments who shared a passion for chamber music and to provide platforms from which to perform. Members have mostly trained at the major conservatoires in Britain and between them have performed in chamber groups all around the world and orchestras including the London Symphony and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras.
Meritus was the pseudonym of Felix Mendelssohn given to the young composer by Robert Schumann. It translates roughly as 'happy through merit' which is an inspiring yet effective byword for this young and dynamic group of musicians who will be bringing a varied and exciting set of programmes to Lauderdale House over the course of the year.
The recital will take place in the Long Gallery, using our newly- refurbished 9ft Erard kindly provided by Markson Pianos, one of the most respected piano specialists in Great Britain www.marksonpianos.com

Madame Viardot's Salon

Members of Salon Musical and Test-of-Time Entertainment

Songs, violin and piano music by Fauré, Chopin, Duparc and Elgar
Poetry by Baudelaire

Salon Musical is a unique show of theatre and music where audience members escape the every-day and venture into a world of beautiful music and poetry as well as flirtation, gossip and intrigue. A cast of five young professional performers, two singers, an actor, a violinist and a pianist, all graduates from the top London music and drama conservatoires, play historical characters and weave together music and scripted dialogue. The show's creation has involved academic research as well as professional direction and costume design.

Experience has shown that the shows bring alive the past in an informative yet entertaining way. The performers engage with the audience throughout the evening to create a relaxed, immersive and intimate social gathering.

Picture yourself as a guest at the home of celebrated 19th century singer, composer and pianist Pauline Viardot, being introduced to emerging composer Gabriel Fauré, eminent and provocative poet Stéphane Mallarmé and their protégés. They will be performing their latest music and poetry and you will witness their spontaneous music-making.
