Telemann Webinar update

By on August 1, 2020 in Telemann Fantasias, Uncategorized, Webinars

The Webinar on 20 July, A Tribute to Telemann’s Fantasias for Flute, has proved to be a real success with a great many people taking part, showing interest and writing in. Thank you so much for your involvement and thanks especially go to panelists Alfredo Bernardini, Rachel Brown, Nicholas Daniel and Paul Edmund-Davies for their wonderful contributions. Many participants commented on their performances and there was an apprecaition of the diversity of approaches. We were able to play movements from all 12 of the Fantasias and were lucky, too, to be able to play two movements of Fantasia V played by the baroque oboist Antoine Torunczyk and the second movement of Fantasia IV played by recorder player Aldo Abreu. Thanks are due to Antoine and Aldo for letting us use their recordings. 

The Webinar was accompanied by links to the panelists’ recordings and to published work on the Fantasias. My article is available on this website and this gives a full range of references. It is hoped that anyone wanting to continue research on these great works can use this material as a starting point. In the meantime, further discussions can be continued via this website’s e mail address: george@georgecaird.co.uk I am already connecting messages and enquiries to the panelists and other experts.

Finally, thanks are due to Steven Zohn for his support, to Jeremy Polmear (Oboe Classics) for encouraging this event, and to Stephen Powell, Kara Davies-Hobbs and Lizzie Caird for their technical support.  I am now being encouraged to run more webinars so will hope to be in touch with you all again soon.

A Tribute to Telemann Fantasias

By on July 7, 2020 in Telemann Fantasias, Webinars

I have been working during the Covid-19 lockdown on Georg Philipp Telemann’s 12 Fantasias for Flute and finally have an article prepared. In it, I have brought together as much known information about the Fantasias as possible.  I have tried to answer the question on why Telemann wrote the works, looked at their styles and structures and especially discussed Telemann’s amazing imagination in writing them. Recordings on transverse flute, modern flute, recorder, baroque oboe, oboe and many other instruments are mentioned too. It’s been a real voyage of discovery for me and, I hope, will act as a resource for anyone who wants to investigate these fascinating works.

This project has led to discussions with flautist and recorder player Rachel Brown who has written about these works too, as well as recorded them. In turn, our conversations have resulted in the planning of a webinar to celebrate Telemann’s originality in writing them. Discussions continued with oboist Nicholas Daniel, flautist Paul Edmund-Davies and baroque oboist Alfredo Bernardini in planning a two-hour event that seeks to celebrate these Fantasias to the full. In addition, Jeremy Polmear of Oboe Classics has been a great help in imagining how this project could develop. And Stephen Powell has again helped enormously in the preparation of my article.

The flyer posted here is now out and applications to join the webinar are already coming in. We will have to limit the numbers so it will be on a first come, first served basis!

with

Alfredo Bernardini, baroque oboe
Rachel Brown, transverse flute and recorder
Nicholas Daniel, oboe
Paul Edmund-Davies, flute

presented by
George Caird

 

This seminar will celebrate Telemann’s renowned 12 Fantasias for solo flute and explore their unique qualities in relation to modern and period flutes, oboes, recorders and other instruments.  Panelists will discuss Telemann’s originality and imagination in taking the player through twelve different keys and incorporating different styles, dance forms and music that, at times, imitates nature. Written 300 years ago, these works seem even more relevant to wind players today than ever before.

If you would like to attend this Zoom webinar, please fill in this form.

 

There are a limited number of spaces and these can be booked on a first come first served basis.

You will then receive a Zoom invitation (numbers permitting).

A crisis or an opportunity?

By on April 1, 2020 in My News, People, Uncategorized

Like you I am adjusting to the Coronavirus crisis as best I can. My thoughts here are to make contact with all me friends as best I can and to hope that you are doing OK. I am finding that work from home continues to be very busy. With making sure that all activities are safely looked after, with the cancellation of hotels and flights  and with replanning everything, there is already plenty to do. Then there is teaching online and contacting all those who have lessons with me. And, of course, practising and writing and  thinking about music and playing. Once all these things are done, there are the long term projects to think about and planning for next year.

Enough of that! Naturally there is plenty of time to exchange ideas and talk! If you haven’t got my e mail address or phone, please contact me via this website. Covid-19 is perhaps providing the ideal opportunity for new conversations and ideas…..

Barbirolli Competition postponed

By on March 28, 2020 in Barbirolli International Oboe Competition

On the opening day of the now postponed Barbirolli Oboe Competition, this is to send a message of thanks to all involved for your understanding and support. Like events all round the world, we will have to sit this crisis out and I do hope that everyone is keeping safe and well.

I spoke to John Bethell in Port Erin yesterday and he and the whole team are very sad that they will not enjoy the arrival of participants, jurors, audience and supporters. I would like to thank John for the brilliant way in which he and the office have handled this and especially for identifying a new week for the competition:

20 – 27 March 2021!

Please put this in your diaries and remember to keep 19 and 28 March for travel days. All participants will be able to compete and you should have heard already from John Bethell about this.

We hope to stay in touch with you in the months ahead. Please send me a message here or contact  John and the competition office in Port Erin if you have any questions.

Finally, I have so enjoyed learning the set work by Martin Butler, On the Idle Hill of Summer, and I hope that everyone competing has too. Thanks to Martin!

Looking forward to seeing you all next year.

Barbirolli International Oboe Competition 2020

By on March 5, 2020 in Barbirolli International Oboe Competition

The 2020 Barbirolli Oboe Competition fast approaches and we are looking forward to welcoming our contestants to Port Erin in the Isle of Man on 27 March. We have a very exciting list of entrants this year with many countries represented.

We are hoping that Coronavirus will not affect us though we are staying in close touch with the authorities in the Isle of Man and in the UK and keeping close attention to the situation day by day.  Partly as a result of the virus we have been sad to note the demise this week of the airline, Flybe, that flies daily to the Isle of Man. This will bring some disruption, but luckily most people involved have planned to arrive in the Isle of Man by other flights or by ship. Director, John Bethell and the Competition Office are working hard to ensure that plans are fully in place despite this.

I am delighted to have such a distinguished jury: Nora Cismondi now Principal Oboe of L’Orchestre de la Suisse Romande;  John Anderson, Principal Oboe of the English Chamber Orchestra and Professor at the Royal College of Music and Christian Schmitt, formerly Principal Oboe of the Sinfonieorchster Basel and now soloist, chamber musician and Professor at the Hochschule in Stuttgart. Each of our jurors will be performing a recital during the week and giving masterclasses too.

Radcliffe Orchestra: 7 March 2020

By on February 23, 2020 in Concerts, Oxford, Radcliffe Orchestra

My third concert with the wonderful Radcliffe Orchestra will take place at 7.45 pm on Saturday 7 March in Tingewick Hall at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. John James returns to play Strauss’ 2nd Horn Concerto and we are performing Brahms and Sibelius to frame this. Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture will open, followed by Sibelius’ Swan of Tuonela (with Henry Bettinson, cor anglais) before the concerto. Sibelius’ great  Symphony No 1 will complete this rich programme.

It is such a privilege to work with the Radcliffe Orchestra,  an orchestra with a membership of primarily medics playing to a very fine standard and fearlessly taking on the most demanding of repertoire: chapeau!

The concert is given in aid of the Footsteps Foundation that provides intensive rehabilitation for children and young adults with disabling neurological disorders. Do come and support!

Words and Music with Errollyn Wallen

By on December 31, 2019 in Mansfield College

It’s 60 years since my father was appointed as Senior Tutor (later Principal) at Mansfield College (autumn 1959), so it’s fair to say that I have had a lifelong connection with the College. Music has been important there over the years: Eric Routley (hymnolgist and amazing musician) was a Fellow; David Goodall (father of horn player Jonathan Goodall) was organist in the sixties; distinguished pianist Paul Crossley was a student, as was Bryce Morrison; Carolyn Brock was the inspirational organist and Director of Music for many years and now John Oxlade has continued this role.

Under Helena Kennedy’s Principalship, music was further encouraged and it was Helena who appointed Errollyn Wallen as Honorary Fellow. On 6 December and on Principal Helen Mountfield’s instigation, Errollyn presented a delightful evening of words and music in the Chapel where I used to perform with Carolyn Brock. Errollyn involved Mansfield Fellows and Students in playing (Paul Lodge’s Zarathustra’s Roundelay, Sam Spencer with Grieg’s Nocturne Op 54 No 4, Aondoyima Ioratim-Uba playing his piano solo, Nathan Bentley playing Stephen Blundell’s Three Short Pieces for saxophone and piano with the composer), and in reading (Jenny Scoones reading Elizabeth Jennings’ Winter Love, Jamie Albrecht reading poems by Jack Spencer and Ted Berrigan). And Helen Mountfield read Sometimes by Sheenagh Pugh.

It was , therefore , a privilege to be asked to join in this concert, so Jane and I played with Errolyn, Marie Grandval’s Romance and Jane and I, the beautiful Dolce from Telemann’s D major Sonata. This paved the way for Errolyn, who had so finely introduced the evening, to sing songs from the Errollyn Wallen Songbook. What a talent!  Thank you Errollyn.

Errollyn Wallen, CBE

John Whitfield (1957 – 2019)

By on December 30, 2019 in John Whitfield

It was so sad that John Whitfield, bassoonist, conductor and musician extraordinary, died on 4 November. He had not enjoyed good health for some time but even so he has left us far too early. From his phenomenal arrival on the scene, through his years as a fine player (LSO, London Mozart Players etc.) and then to his founding work with the Endymion Ensemble, his was an extraordinary life. As Quentin Poole said in his beautiful eulogy at his funeral on 21 November in Mortlake, John was always pushing at bounderies and often beyond them. In musical terms this involved an idealism that brought him admiration from musicans and everyone. It was strange that his funeral should finally be modest in numbers of people, but the profession was superbly represented and what was said and played so very understanding of John himself. He would have been touched.

But even more so, the concert held for him at the Wigmore Hall on 5 December was quite amazing. Featuring John’s arrangements of Brahms’ C Minor String Quartet and Bartok’s Mikrokosmos Book V as well as a memorable performance of the Bach Chaconne by Krysia Osostowicz, a large audience of colleagues friends and admirers gathered to say farewell. The Bartok arrangement was for wind quintet (Helen Keen, Melinda Maxwell, Andrew Marriner, Jonathan Williams, Rachel Gough conducted by Noah Max) and the Brahms for wind nonet with double bass (Helen Keen, Melinda Maxwell, George Caird, Andrew Marriner, David Fuest, Richard Watkins, Jonathan Williams, Rachel Gough, Wendy Phillips and Chi-Chi Nwanoku conducted by Sian Edwards). John’s arrangements are brilliant and wonderful to play especially with such colleagues……

Will Casson-Smith, Quentin Poole, and Noah Max did a great job in organising everything down to the last detail. It was a memorable way both at the funeral and at the concert to celebrate John’s life . And it was so good, too, to see so many old friends.

Nicholas Daniel at Oxford Chamber Music Society

By on December 22, 2019 in Oxford Chamber Music Society

On 1 December my second concert as President of Oxford Chamber Music Society featured my old friend Nick Daniel playing oboe quartets with his Britten Oboe Quartet colleagues, Jacqueline Shave (violin), Caroline Dearnley (viola) and Clare Finnimore (cello). The concert was a real treat with great performances of Oliver Knussen’s Cantata and Elizabeth Lutyens’ Driving Out the Death. Nick’s beautiful oboe playing throughout was matched by his cor anglais playing Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus. The concert began with Moeran’s Oboe Phantasy, a favourite of ours and of course they ended with the great Mozart F major Quartet – a masterful account by Nick and colleagues. Nick is so good at introducing his concerts – informative, witty and really communicating with his audience. Afterwards and wanting to catch up with Nick and his family,  there seemed to be only one thing to do on a Sunday late afternoon in Oxford – tea at the Randolph Hotel!

Concert for Kamran’s Ward

By on December 22, 2019 in Oxford

A memorable evening this autumn was spent playing for the Oxford Elysian Ensemble and Choristers of radley College in a benefit concert on 17 November for Kamran’s Ward, the wonderful home of Paediatric Oncology at the John Radcliffe Hospital. The concert was promoted by Alison Cooke, Richard Wigmore and the OEE and involved performances of choral works by Bach, Handel and Purcell. To give some instrumental interludes to the programme, Ali asked Maddy Aldis-Evans and me to play The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (with Caroline Woolf, Diana Hinds, Vanessa McNaught and Gabriel Amherst as strong ensemble) and handel’s G minor Trio Sonata. It was great to play with Maddy, a former student of Royal Birmingham Conservatoire who was ten years principal oboe in Dessau Opera House and is now with the Sinfonia Viva. The concert was directed by Stephen Clarke.
