MIKI AOKI piano

Fazil Say  Sonata

Kreisler  La Folia
Paganini  Witches Dance
Dvorak  
Sonatina

Rolf and Miki will explore music that reflects the turbulent modern society through descriptive, visceral sounds and expression.
Rolf says "To me, this music takes an unsettled glance at everyday realities we face in life and interprets the scene with unexpectedly graphic results. It is evidence that there are still people in the world today that are dedicated to making bold artistic statements, and courageous enough to be true to themselves."

Violinist Rolf Haas combines virtuosity and an expansive sound palette and has played performances to enthusiastic audiences all across the globe. With his extremely varied repertoire, he does his best to convey a wide range of emotions, and to tell a musical story, a journey which establishes a connection with music lovers in the audience. A winner of multiple prizes at various competitions in the USA, and performing all over the world, Rolf plays on his Grandfather's Gagliano: the same violin on which the debuts of the Alban Berg and Arnold Schoenberg Concertos were performed.

Miki Aoki (piano) made her debut at age 12 performing at the Royal Festival Hall with the National Symphony Orchestra.  Ms Aoki's recent and upcoming engagements include performances at the Menuhin Festival Gstaad, St-Petersburg Philharmonic Hall, University of Hawaii and solo recitals in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  In 2011 Ms Aoki signed an exclusive contract with German label Profil Hänssler.


Ticketholders are invited to join the performers in the Club's exclusive bar and lounge after the performance.

British born pianist Rosie Whiting is a musician who likes to get under the skin of contemporary performance and bring something new to the performance platform.  In every concert she performs the audience can be guaranteed of hearing something new and unexpected.

Rosie started playing the piano at the age of 7 after hearing her sister practice.  In 2007 she won a place to study at the prestigious Purcell School of Music, with a full scholarship.  Under the tutelage of Carole Presland she explored music from all the epochs and soon realised that her passion was with the contemporary repertoire.

In 2009 Rosie began to study with Douglas Finch at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London, and under his guidance immersed herself in modern music.  During her time at Trinity, Rosie was able to work with many composers including Tansy Davies, Errollyn Wallen, John White and Mark Grey to name a few.  In 2013 Rosie was awarded first prize in the John Halford Competition for contemporary piano music for her performance of Boulez Piano Sonata No.1 and Messiaen L'Alouette Lulu.  She also made her concerto debut with a performance of Mozart Piano Concerto K.449.


Ticketholders are invited to join Rosie in the Club's exclusive bar and lounge after the performance.

BRAID-PODOBEDOV DUO - Switched on Sweelinck

Fri 9 May 2014
6.30pm  Doors & Bar
7.30pm  Concert

BRAID-PODOBEDOV DUO
DAVID BRAID
electric-archtop guitar 
SERGEI PODOBEDOV piano

In this unique concert, the highly original Braid-Podobedov Duo will premiere their new (2014) transcriptions of works by Sweelinck plus Byrd, Gibbons and other composers from the C.15th/16th Fitzwilliam Virginal Book, alongside first performances of new duos and solos by David Braid, plus various solos by Chopin and other later composers.

BRAID-PODOBEDOV DUO
David Braid (electric-archtop guitar) and Sergei Podobedov (piano) make up this unique, London-based duo that combines the past and future in programmes of Renaissance and Baroque music alongside brand new works by the duo’s guitarist, David.

David and Sergei make their own transcriptions of the organ music of Sweelinck, Byrd, Gibbons, Tallis, J.S. Bach, et al, the combining of these two instruments produces a truly remarkable tone colour and is achieved by David’s use of a semi-acoustic archtop guitar, which blends seamlessly with the piano.

The duo orchestrate the works as would an organist, resulting in a fresh but stylistically-sensitive approach to this fascinating music of the contrapuntal school.

Ticketholders are invited to join the performers in the Club's exclusive bar and lounge after the performance.

BAROQUE ENCOUNTER - Handel and the Burlington Circle

BAROQUE ENCOUNTER
GLENN KESBY
counter tenor
LAUREN BRANT recorders
CLAIRE WILLIAMS piano

with DAVID BEANEY recorders and baroque flute

Programme to incude music by Handel from Amadigi, Radamisto, Birthday Ode for Queen Anne (Eternal Source of Light Divine), Rinaldo, Mi palpita il cor, and by colleagues and rivals Ariosti, Bononcini and Greene

The social network provided to Handel during his lodging with Lord Burlington included writers, rivals, patrons and royalty. Handel dedicated Teseo and Amadigi to Burlington and through a Burlington House regular, Dr Arbuthnot physician to Queen Anne, wrote the famous Birthday Ode to the Queen. Handel established himself as the London’s foremost composer of Italian opera and for English ceremonial occasions.

Baroque Encounter are celebrating 10 years of making music together.  Though soloists in their own right, together they present recitals of beautiful music in a luxurious mix of favourite ensemble pieces, virtuosic pieces for two instruments, and vocal and instrumental solos.  Along with more popular baroque works, Baroque Encounter offers audiences the opportunity to experience the splendours of under-valued baroque gems.  Whilst performing in an historically informed manner they strive to maintain a friendly modern approach to all performances.  In 2012 Baroque Encounter were invited to perform in the Palladium Baroque Festival in Malmö, Sweden.  Back on home ground they have appeared in venues ranging from the intimacy of London’s Handel House Museum (seating 28 people) to the expansive Fairfield Halls (filled to capacity with 1,600 people), and from an unprecedented packed-out National Portrait Gallery (London) recital to the Chelsea and Dulwich Festivals.  Their respective solo performances have taken them around the UK, Europe, South America, East Asia, Africa, and to Australia.

The Club's exclusive bar and lounge are open for the enjoyment of ticketholders an hour before the performance. The performers also invite you to join them there after the recital.

Tickets: £18 / £15 concessions, including a pre-concert drink, and light refreshments after the performance.

"There is drama here…and Fotopoulos gives engaging performances, without sacrificing precision or clarity for the passion of the moment." Gavin Dixon on Costas Fotopoulos’s Debut CD, Music Web International.

Costas Fotopoulos is based in London and works internationally as a concert and silent film pianist, and as a composer and arranger for film, the stage and the concert hall.  He studied piano with Hamish Milne at the Royal Academy of Music, London, and with Oxana Yablonskaya at the Juilliard School, New York.  He has given many solo and chamber performances in this country and across the world.  His acclaimed debut solo piano album, released by JCL Records in February 2009, features works by Rachmaninov as well as his own “Toccata”, which he has also recorded for YouTube.  He has recorded repertoire for BBC Radio and the piano solo work by Nicholas Sackman, Cross hands, for the Metier label.  Costas won a Scholarship Award at the International Johannes Brahms Competition 2012 and was a keyboard finalist in the 2001 Royal Over-Seas League Competition.
