Sunday Afternoon Music Recitals commence on 6th May at 15.30
Every Sunday afternoon from May to September, this beautiful and historic church offers a platform for emerging artists and seasoned professionals to present exciting and eclectic programmes to the local community and the wider visiting audience. For over a decade, the St. Anne’s Sunday Afternoon Recital Series has consistently attracted musicians of international repute to perform in this uniquely atmospheric setting.
This year’s series includes keyboard music spanning four centuries, performances by opera artistes from the stages of Covent Garden and Grange Park, a chamber music cycle featuring repertoire for wind trio, string quartet and music for piano and wind instruments, two specialist period instrument ensembles, the world première of a violin sonata, an international trombone and piano duo, and the return of former music director Chad Kelly to perform three concerts of the music of Mozart, with musical friends old and new.
Before and after every recital, home-made cakes and cream teas can be enjoyed in the church’s Parish Rooms and surrounding picturesque grounds. A retiring collection goes towards sustaining and developing the rich musical life of the church.
Concert Wednesday 7th March at 19.30 – Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde marks the culmination of a lifetime spent fusing the forms of song and symphony. An immensely beautiful and enigmatic work, it is here performed in a stunning chamber arrangement by Iain Farringdon, to highlight the centenary of the foundation of the Society for Private Musical Performances in Vienna, 1918. After the success of Mahler’s 4th Symphony last summer, Finnegan Downie Dear returns to conduct this concert, celebrating some of the best young singers and instrumentalists that London has to offer. The historic and atmospheric setting of St.Anne’s, Kew Green, will provide the perfect backdrop to enjoy this uniquely intimate reading of a monumental work. Richard Dowling – Tenor, Kate Howden – Mezzo Soprano, Shadwell Ensemble, Finnegan Downie Dear – Conductor – Tickets £15.00 (£10.00 concessions) on the door
