THE KING'S SINGERS AND ACOUSTIC TRIANGLE: LULLABY OF BIRDLAND

A Tribute to Sir Richard Rodney Bennett and Sir George Shearing

Lullaby_of_Birdland

For two concerts in June last year, The King's Singers joined forces with Acoustic Triangle - Malcolm Creese (double bass), Tim Garland (saxophones) and Gwilym Simcock (piano) - to pay tribute to two legendary musicians, Richard Rodney Bennett and George Shearing, in concerts at Cadogan Hall in London and St. John the Evangelist in Oxford.

Both concerts were very successful and well received by audience and reviewers. Many thanks to all who attended.

Blog from Christopher Gabbitas (baritone with the Kings Singers)

Is it the end, or the beginning? That's what we're keen to find out after the second of our two tribute concerts with the wonderful Acoustic Triangle, last night in Oxford. It was so much fun to work with them that we certainly don't want it to be the last time we get together, so we now have grand dreams of recordings, tours, and collaboration...

Thanks Christopher!


GUITARIST IN THE LONG RUN

Carl_Herring_Marathon_2013_MS

Audio-B's young classical guitar virtuoso Carl Herring ran in the 2013 London Marathon to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Unfortunately, Carl's wife is one of the 100,000 people in the UK who have the condition. The MS Society does amazing work in supporting those with MS and funding research which might one day lead to better treatments or even a cure.

The photo is from the Leith Hill Half Marathon which Carl (No. 142) planned as a 'warm up' run. If the sign on the ground is anything to go by, he was running in the wrong direction - fortunately he got it right in London on 21st April, setting a new personal best of 3:18:01 and beating the £2000 target for the MS Society! Many thanks to all for your kind support and generosity.

This Audio-B release of solo Russian guitar music is performed by Carl Herring, arguably the finest classical guitarist of his generation.

AUDIO-B GOES CLASSICAL: BACH / STRAVINSKY / GARLAND

A beautifully recorded CD is available from the Audio-B web shop featuring the music of JS Bach, Igor Stravinsky and Tim Garland, played by one of the world's great orchestras - Northern Sinfonia. The CD celebrates Bach's extraordinary influence which has endured for three centuries. Tim Garland shows his extraordinary versatility, not only as an important contemporary composer, but as soloist (on soprano saxophone) in two of Bach's oboe concertos and one of his own.

HAVE YOU VISITED THE ACOUSTIC TRIANGLE WEB BLOG?

Here are some audience comments from recent posts:

My friends and I did enjoy last night at Turner-Sims.
We thought it was the best we heard Acoustic Triangle play, having first heard you at the Gower Festival in 2007 and subsequently at Turner Sims and Romsey.
Tim's blowing seemed especially free last night.
All the best for the next 10 years!

Dear Conductor and Choir,
Yesterday evening I attended the St George service/liturgy in Manchester Cathedral. I just want to say I cannot recall listening to such a magnificent performance as your singing, and the playing, of that long piece while the St George cross was being made. It was simply wonderful. It was liquid gold. It was spell-binding. The quality of music playing and singing was incredible.
Tell all three instrumentalists, tell the conductor, tell every single member of the choir.
And where is there a recording of it that I can purchase?

We really enjoyed the brilliance of Acoustic Triangle last evening, it was a memorable occasion.

I think you must be really pleased - what a wonderful wonderful performance - Rodger and I totally agreed that this is how music should be - great musicians in a lovely friendly environment where everyone feels involved.

What a great evening, Jack! And a good room as well.

Many thanks for Sunday evening. A really memorable event. I have seen Acoustic Triangle playing five times now and if I had to make comparisons this was the best so far... Wonderful.

Thanks for arranging such an amazing evening

Congratulations on last night's concert. It was superb and being able to use the Grimsdyke music room was a bonus too! Well done!

It was hugely successful I thought. The venue worked - and you even organised food! Everyone appeared happy.

As for the music, well, even though I was only there for half the gig, I felt high with it and still do. What a trio.
