Orchestra of the Restoration
Choir of St Mary’s
St Barnabas Cathedral Schola Cantorum

German Requiem - Brahms
Symphony No 5 - Beethoven

A friend of mine is one of the clarinetists.

Ah, that explains why they were singing parts of it on Sunday morning. They're a decent choir.

I might come along to that one too.

Alina Ibragimova - violin
Cédric Tiberghien - piano

Abbotsholme School Chapel

Beethoven, Sonatas for Violin and Piano opp. 24 "Spring", 12/2, 96 (encore: second movement op. 30/1)

Wonderful playing and a rare chance to hear great musicians in such a small room. Quite restrained playing from Ms Ibragimova, but beautiful and emphatic nonetheless. Interesting use of rubato throughout. The slow movement from the op. 96 was amazing.

A couple of gigs at Kettle's Yard in Cambridge over the weekend, including James Clarke's Oboe Quintet (played by the Kreutzer Quartet and Christopher Redgate), which I didn't know before and is fabulous, and Mark Knoop playing two pieces I did already know, Lachenmann's Guero and Nono's ...sofferte onde serene..., both wonderful pieces, wonderfully played. If this sort of music's your bag, all very strongly recommended.

Submotion Orcherstra as the South Bank on friday.

Really liked them a lot, very Portishead and Massive Attack with bits of other ambient dark mellow stuff thrown in for Good measure and from Leeds so...
A great group to just relax and listen to whilst doing nothing atall or even to have in the backround, very cool modern noir film soundtrack like.

I saw US prog-metallers Mastodon at the Roundhouse last night, good show, was amusing watching people attempting to nod to the wilfully awkward drumming & dynamics (for heavy metal anyway)

I saw Evile play some weeks back and after that I saw Hecate Enthroned play a fortnight ago and last week I saw Cannabis Corpse/Decrepid/River Freshney play.

All mainly death/thrash metal shit.

Last nights performaces of Beethoven's 5th and Brahms: Ein Deutches Requiem by the Orchestra of the Restoration, and Choir of St Mary’s + St Barnabas Cathedral Schola Cantorum were pretty damn respectable for a local/semi-pro orchestra.

The Beethoven was a little faster than i'm used to, or might've preferred, but they held the structure of the piece together really well. We did spot a couple minor flaws. One of or two of the cellists intonation was a bit off on a couple of occasions, and the part of the first movement was just slightly slurry at times, but nothing too drastic. But they found their feet in time for the all important 4th movement, which i thought they made a splendid job of. They got the dynamics near perfect.

Really no complaints with the Brahms Requiem though. Apart from the horn section being a little bit quivery on the opening notes, which are really low, the rest of it was fine. And the choir and singers were marvelous. I was very impressed indeed with the choral aspect.
My friend Phil who was playing clarinet, told me that they had the first rehearsal the night before the concert, and then another one yesterday afternoon. All things considered then, i thought they did a great job all round, and have not been put off the idea of going to see local amateur/semi pro orchestras again.

Infact next Saturday, my friend Phil is playing in the Nottingham Philharmonic at the Royal Concert Hall, in a progamme featuring Verdi, Grieg, Strauss, & Wagner. So i'm going along to that too. Smile

And we had spledid nights drinking afterwards. B and my settee are becoming quite good friends. Very Happy

I saw the idiotically named but brilliant Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra Band on Wednesday, they are apparently made up of Godspeed You Black Emperor members, I really can't recommend them highly enough, still on tour in Manchester, Leeds, London, Nottingham etc, see them if you can! I don't have any of their records so can't comment on that, but live they were awesome.
