My turn

Well, its my turn in the spot-light tonight. Rather than writing about a performance, I'll be performing myself with my ensemble the FifteenB Consort. Being as there are only seven of us performing, we'll be very definitely in the lime-light. The centre-piece of the concert is Palestrina's glorious six-part  Missa tu es petrus, I never like performing mass setting at one sitting, so the concert is structured like a mass, with plainchant propers and motets based on the propers. To provide further punctuation, clarinettist Peter Cigleris will be playing some unaccompanied music for clarinet, Malcolm Arnold, Anton Stadler, Harvey/Gershwin and Stravinsky (at the positions in the mass where you'd normally get the sermon and the consecration). We are including Stravinsky's three Latin motets to complement the clarinet pieces. Its all at 7.30pm tonight at St. Faith's Church, Herne Hill, part of the Herne Hill Music Festival. More details at my website.
