Alex Wilson

The War Centenary is an event of worldwide significance and commemoration and is quite rightly receiving a lot of attention within the arts. This concert is an exploration of the work of composers whose lives were tragically cut short or irreversibly altered due to their wartime experiences. As well as some well known composers such as Edward Elgar, Hubert Parry and Frank Bridge, Alex Wilson’s performance will shine a light on the work of promising composers never given the chance to fulfil their potential, providing a well–deserved voice to some beautiful but unheralded repertoire.

Saturday 18th March
CELEBRITY CONCERT
AN EVENING WITH PATRICIA ROZARIO
with MICHAEL McHALE (pianist) and TIMOTHY JONES (french horn)


Patricia Rozario  Michael McHale (top) and Timothy Jones

PROGRAMME
There will be a performance of the beautiful Franz Strauss ‘Nocturne for Horn and Piano’, and the three will perform, amongst other favourite arias and lieder, Franz Schubert’s ‘Auf dem Strom’ for soprano, horn and piano.

According to The Gramophone magazine, ‘Patricia Rozario floats effortlessly with a voice of liquid gold.’ Her unique voice and artistry has inspired over fifteen of the worldfors leading composers to write for her – most notably Arvo Pärt and Sir John Tavener, who alone wrote over thirty works for her, making their collaboration unique in the contemporary field.
In this concert, we will be listening to this remarkable artist singing well–known songs and arias.
She will be joined by Michael McHale, one of Irelands leading pianists, and Timothy Jones, the Principal Horn of the London Symphony Orchestra.
