To Notice Such Things returns to ShipleyJuly 4, 2013
Two years ago, Jon gave his last ever concert performance at St. Andrew’s church in Nuthurst – two days after his triumphant appearance at the 2011 Sunflower Jam with Rick Wakeman, Joe Bonamassa and others.
To Notice Such Things was originally commissioned by the Shipley Arts Festival and first performed there by Jon in 2009.
– It is entirely fitting that we are performing the piece to remember two great English composers in Jon Lord and Baron Benjamin Britten in his centenary year, explains Andrew Bernardi.
Maria Marchant will be playing piano for Jon with Bruce Martin playing the flute.
The programme will include English music spanning four hundred years from Purcell‘s Chaconny in G minor, Britten‘s Hymn to St Cecilia, excerpts from Jon’s To Notice Such Things, Britten‘s Lachrymae, and Mozart‘s Piano Concert no 12 as recorded by Britten.
Tickets are £19.00 and limited to 150.
