Concert Premiere at St. Michael and All Angels
Concierto Folklorico has Flamenco and Spanish elements
A Concerto Folklorico composed by John Carmichael is to have its world premiere on November 19th at St. Michael and All Angels Church, Bath Road at 7.30 p.m.
The concerto is unusual in that it is for two pianists with orchestra and was written specially with the two soloists in mind. They are Anne Applin and Geoffrey Pratley, both British piano duettists.
The folkloric element in the concerto is in the use of a flamenco and Spanish idiom, stemming from John Carmichael's years as musical director of the Spanish dance company Eduardo Y Navarra.
His music has featured in the Blenheim Music Circle and Bedford Park Festivals. Earlier this year he received the award of OAM ( Medal of the Order of Australia) in the Queen's Birthday Honours.
The conductors are, Patrick Noranha and Michael Nebe, and the programme also includes:
Tickets are £15 (£12 concessions) at the door, or from John Carmichael (0208-994 8810) or from Orpheus Papafilippou (07791804764).
