The marvellous new album from the Nick Weldon Sextet is a jazz soundtrack for our time.

The improvising, from some of the UK’s finest and most inspiring players, is thrilling. Eleven shades of passion, explored by six superb musicians.

Surround Sound

The Arensky Chamber Orchestra

J S Bach: Art of Fugue
R Strauss: Metamorphosen



ACO Resident Orchestra at The Forge event 2

"There's never been anything more beautiful in all of music.” - Glenn Gould on the eve of recording the Art of Fugue

"The most perfect works of counterpoint ever written, 'a compendium of revelations’ blossoming from just one melody of arresting simplicity. A composer traumatised by 'the most terrible period of human history’ and driven to write an elegy for his war-torn home. These are the ingredients of two of the greatest polyphonic works ever written - Bach’s Art of Fugue and Strauss’ Metamorphosen.

In the ACO’s second concert at The Forge, you’ll find yourself immersed in a unique performance of both these masterpieces. First you’ll be surrounded by Bach’s extraordinary fugues, ranging from the serene to the brilliant, as members of the ACO perform each one from a different location around the hall. Then the orchestra’s string principals will perform Strauss’s Metamorphosen 'in the round’ at the heart of the Forge, drawing you into the intense melancholia of this memorial for bomb-destroyed Munich, which with ends with a ghostly echo from Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’.

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.
