Lewes Chamber Music Festival - Coffee Concert
Haydn String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 9 No. 2

Britten Cello Suite No. 2, Op. 80

Although it was not until his opus 20 set of quartets that the cello fully emerged as an equal and often primary voice; even in his op.9s Haydn was demonstrating the ability to write music saturated in rhetoric and deeply complex and human feelings. In this morning's concert he is paired with Benjamin Britten, and his extraordinary Second Cello Suite. Performers Beatrice Philips and Tim Crawford (violin); Timothy Ridout (viola); and Philip Higham and Hannah Sloane (cello).

Free coffee from 10.30 am

Lewes Chamber Music Festival - Afternoon Concert
Haydn Piano Trio in E flat major, Hob.XV:22, No. 36

Melanie Daiken Sonata for Viola and Piano

Schoenberg String Quartet No. 1

In what is becoming a Festival tradition, the Sunday afternoon concert presents some more unusual chamber music pieces. Alongside Haydn is the Sonata for viola and piano, by composer Melanie Daiken. Melanie was a student of Olivier Messiaen in Paris, and wrote this Sonata in 1981 for violist Csaba Erdely. This afternoon performed by James Boyd, and young pianist Mishka Momen. After this comes something really special: a rare performance of Schoenberg's first string quartet, given by some brilliant young students from Music Works chamber courses, who have been working alongside Festival violinist Catherine Manson.

Ricardo Curbelo: Rhythms from Latin America


Innovative musician, composer and poet, Ricardo Curbelo takes his audiences on a colourful journey through different Latin American countries on harp, cuatro, maracas and vocals. He presents a great combination of traditional pieces, together with many of his own, often spellbinding compositions. Vibrant, energetic and jazzy pieces contrast with lovely, captivating melodies and romantic vocals. The sound response of his Modelo Corvado harps, which he designs and constructs himself, adds to the uniqueness of his performances and he offers most of us over here quite a different experience of harp music!

Ricardo has been resident in London since 1979 and has many years experience on a wide variety of stages: radio & TV, concerts, festivals, educational institutions, wedding receptions and charity performances, to name but a few. He is delighted to be bringing his music for the first time to the All Saints Centre and the lovely town of Lewes.

More information on: www.ricardocurbelo.com

Some compliments:

A night of powerful and simply breathtaking music from this master player of the Latin American Harp. (Valleys Roots magazine, Wales)

He has got to be seen to be believed. (Time Out magazine, London)

We loved the music - enchanting, magical and beautiful. (Chairman, Anglo-Colombian Society, London May 2014)

A C Grayling returns to speak on the ‘Challenge of things’ and Dr David Lewis to speak on the global epidemic of obesity. Ex-international rugby player Richard Parks speaks about the expedition challenges he undertook that were filmed for a TV series this year and Jason Lewis recounts his record as the first person to circumnavigate the world using human power only.
