JAM on the Marsh with Michael Bawtree
St Nicholas Church
Finzi Eclogue for Piano and String Orchestra
Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings
James Aburn New Work (world premiere)
Sibelius Impromptu No5
Paul Mealor Symphony No2 (Sacred Places)
A fabulous programme including Tchaikovsky, Sibelius and Finzi, alongside Paul Mealor’s spectacular 2nd Symphony and a world premiere by Kent composer James Aburn.
Paul Mealor was Festival Curator of JAM on the Marsh (2015-16) and it is a huge pleasure to be presenting only the second performance of his 2nd Symphony. The subtitle of this most expressive of works is ‘Sacred Places’; the piece having been inspired by the vast open spaces of the Rocky Mountains, Canada. It is scored for strings, percussion and piano.
Joining the orchestra, and making her JAM on the Marsh debut, is the outstanding British pianist, Anna Tilbrook. Michael Bawtree will conduct this final concert of the festival; a perfect musical offering to finish his first year as Festival Curator.
