The Ionian Singers and Timothy Salter (conductor and piano) are joined by the clarinettist Marina Finnamore on Saturday 9th November in a programme of music from France, Germany and England. Finzi is represented in both choral and instrumental form, with the English element complemented by two of Walton’s short choral pieces and the first performance of Ave verum corpus, a new work by Nicholas Ansdell-Evans. The French music is by Poulenc (from his Sept Chansons of 1936), with clarinet and piano music by Debussy (Première Rhapsodie) and Messager.
From Germany come Schumann’s Fantasy Pieces op.73 for clarinet and piano and two of Brahms’s contemplative part-songs. The concert concludes with Salter’s transcription of three Wolf songs that bring all the performers together.
