The combined forces of Corvus Consort and Ferio Saxophone Quartet look forward to a concert for Chiltern Arts in Henley on 26th February. The Chiltern Arts Festival Weekend opens with Tenebrae at Dorchester Abbey on Friday 25th February, followed by Corvus Consort and Ferio Saxophone Quartet’s concert on the Saturday.
Their programme will feature a first half of music from their core collaboration of Baroque vocal works re-imagined for voices and saxophones, and a second half of 20th- and 21st-century music, including a brand new arrangement of Vaughan Williams’s cantata In Windsor Forest, commissioned by Chiltern Arts specially for this concert.
The disc features their collaboration with pianist Timothy End, and includes music by Dmitri Shostakovich, Iain Farrington, Georges Bizet and Pedro Iturralde.
The Ferio Saxophone Quartet will perform a double-bill of concerts at Henley Festival on Sunday 19th September.
In the morning they will give an informal performance at 10:30am, as part of the Festival’s ‘Family Sunday’ line-up — then they will give a formal concert at 6:30pm to an audience in black tie dress-code.
Both performances feature the same programme, including works by Piazzolla, Donizetti, Bach, Bizet and Bernstein, and will take place at the festival’s ‘Jazz Club’ in the magnificent Spiegel Tent.
Tickets are available via the Henley Festival website, via the General Admission and Family Sunday sections.
The two ensembles have built a collaborative project which they look forward to presenting in concert and on disc in the coming seasons.
