Program

Memorialising the dead is part of all cultures and this social practice is often given expression in art. In this sense this concert is pure emotion, with works in the programme dedicated to people who were loved or admired. Ravel, for example, dedicated Le tombeau de Couperin to the friends he had lost during the First World War, an original work for piano that we shall hear in an arrangement by Carlos Ramón. Postcard, by Ticheli, is dedicated to the mother of musician and conductor H. Robert Reynolds, and Kaddish, by William F. Macbeth, is a musical work based on a Jewish prayer associated with the ritual of mourning. Martin Ellerby closes the concert on a slightly different note. Each movement of Paris Sketches is dedicated to a composer, a musical tribute to Ravel, Stravinsky and Prokófiev, Satie and Berlioz against such iconic backdrops as the Latin Quarter, Pigalle, the Père Lachaise Cemetery and Les Halles.
