June 2016 – upcoming gigs in London – Henryk Sienkiewicz plays ‘New Music for Solo Horn’ at IKLECTIK (14th)

12 Jun

New Music for Solo Horn, 14th June 2016It seems that I’ve been missing a lightly-promoted season of classical music at IKLECTIK, apparently run by oboist and composer Catherine Pluygers (also the director of London New Wind Festival). To compensate, here’s some quick notification of an upcoming concert there in a couple of days: one which ties in with the LNWF’s various ethos of encouraging music for wind instruments, of showcasing contemporary wind repertoire and of showcasing music by female composers.

Catherine Pluygers presents:
New Music for Solo Horn: Henryk Sienkiewicz
IKLECTIK, Old Paradise Yard, 20 Carlisle Lane, Waterloo, London, SE1 7LG, England
Tuesday 14th June 2016, 7.30pm
information

Programme:

Graham Williams – Brief Message
David Winkler – Concerto Piece for Horn & “Orchestra”
Ken Davies – Brain Fantasies for Horn & CD
Annette LeSiege – Shadow Dancer
Ian Wilson – She Passes…Passes…Passes By
Peter Maxwell-Davies – Sea Eagle (for solo horn)
Catherine Pluygers – Post Horn (world premiere)

Performer:

Henryk Sienkiewicz – solo horn


(Ken Davies – ‘Brain Fantasies’ – excerpt)

In addition to the Pluygers premiere, the programme includes nods to two composers who’ve died in recent years: Peter Maxwell-Davies (who left us in March this year) and Annette LeSiege (who died in 2012). While it’s not hard to find versions of Peter’s ‘Sea Eagle’ online – see above – it’s considerably harder to find representations of Annette’s work, something which is still too often the case with female composers, and is part of what the LNWF was set up to compensate for. As my own small effort toward redressing the situation, I’m re-sharing the LeSiege tribute piece circulated on Soundcloud at her memorial: ‘When All That’s Left Of Me Is Love, Give Me Away’, which was composed by Annette’s student René Martinez, setting a poem by Merrit Malloy read by Adria Firestone.
