Antony and Friends
Antony and Friends Season 2017 - 18
Thanks to all of you who have supported these concerts over the last few years and helped to make them a regular feature in the Todmorden musical calendar!
The next Antony and Friends informal chamber music concert will be on Saturday 16 June 2018 at Todmorden Central Methodist Church at 7.30 pm.
My guests on this occasion will be flautist Lynda Robertson and pianist Tim Wilkes. Lynda will be well known to Todmorden audiences as she was for some years principal flute with Todmorden Orchestra.
Amongst the works she'll perform in the concert with Tim as accompanist will be the J S Bach Flute Sonata in E minor BWV 1034. This technically challenging work places great demands on the soloist and is sure to thrill and excite the audience!
Another work will be Messiaen's atmospheric piece Le Merle Noir ("The Blackbird"). Noted for his realistic depictions of birdsong, Messiaen moved music forward in a startlingly naturalistic way and the contrast between this and the Bach sonata could not be greater.
In addition Lynda will perform other works as will Tim and I shall also contribute some piano solo music too.
Plans for further concerts are in hand and information will be sent out as soon as details are confirmed.
Further details will follow but please make a note of these dates.
As usual the concerts take place at the Central Methodist Church in Todmorden and start at 7.30 pm. Admission is free and a retiring collection is taken. Refreshments are provided
