Brahms and Liszt in Highgate with Gavin and Murray @ Pond Square Chapel
Dec 9 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Join Gavin Davies (violin) and Murray Hipkin (piano) for a relaxed evening of celebrated romantic music and delicious wine

In another little step back to the ethos of the London Novello Ensemble – which is the presentation of great music outside the formal constraints of the concert hall – Murray and Gavin present the two opposites of late 19th century romanticism along with music by Delius, Vitali and Sarasate, and a selection of popular tangos including Piazzolla’s famous ‘Libertango’

Gavin Davies studied the violin with Marta Eitler and at the Royal College of Music with Jaroslav Vanecek and Natasha Boyarsky. He combines a freelance orchestral career with ensembles such as the London Philharmonic and BBC Concert orchestras with regular chamber music and solo performances.

Murray Hipkin is a fulltime member of the music staff at English National Opera, where he has conducted The Mikado, The Gondoliers, The Pirates of Penzance, Kismet, Carousel, Chess and Man of la Mancha. He is musical director of the Pink Singers and the North London Chorus and he recently finished filming Anyone Can Sing for ENO/Sky Arts in the role of music supervisor and accompanist.

Programme to include:

Brahms – Sonata No. 1 in G

Liszt – Romance

Delius – Sonata No. 3

Vitali – Chaconne

Sarasate – Zigeunerweisen

Tangos by Albeniz, Gade, and Piazzolla
