Music in the Round

East Meets West

Ensemble 360 & Jonathan Mayer SITAR

Presented at Studio

Running time: 1 hour (no interval)

Part of the Music In The Round: May Festival 2013

ELGAR Violin Sonata in E minor Op.82
ELGAR Quartet for Oboe and Strings
FOULDS Essays in the Modes Op.78 (extracts) – for piano
DOWLAND Dr Case’s Pavan – arr. Mayer for sitar
WALTON Quartet for Piano and Strings

In the first part of this double bill, Ensemble 360 extends the festival’s British theme to include works and composers associated with the days of the British Empire. Debate continues over much of Elgar’s work – overtly jingoistic or merely patriotic? – but there is no doubting the fascination for India held by his contemporary, the extraordinary maverick genius John Foulds . His evocative setting of South Indian Ragas is here complemented by a short celebration of Dowland’s 450th anniversary on one of the oldest members of the guitar family, the sitar.

Fri 17 May 7:00pm £5.00 - £10.00
