Mendelssohn: The Young Master
12 October 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Tom Williams Conductor
David Cowen Organ
Avishka Edirisinghe Piano
Danushka Edirisinghe ‘Cello
Leicestershire Chorale is joined by talented young ‘cellist Danushka Edirisinghe and his pianist brother Avishka (a fomer choral scholar) for ravishing music by German romantic masters Johannes Brahms and Felix Mendelssohn. Our young Meisters will play music to include some of Brahms’ Sonata in E minor and Mendelssohn’s haunting Lied ohne Worte. This will bring balance to choral motets by Brahms, Mendelssohn and the latter’s startling Te Deum in D major, which at one point expands into a sixteen voice texture. We look forward to yet another excitingconcert at a regular favourite venue of the choir.
Tickets £15, £12 (Friends of Leicestershire Chorale), £1 (U19 and NUS)
