Back ArrowConcert Details

Fauré & Debussy songs for voice and piano (selection)
Fuchs Fantasie Etude No. 9 for unaccompanied viola
Strauss Drei Lieder for mezzo, viola and piano, Op. 31
Brahms Two Songs for voice, viola and piano, Op. 91
Bridge Three Songs for voice, viola and piano, H. 76
Vaughan Williams Romance for viola and piano
Loeffler Quatre Poèmes pour voix, alto et piano, Op. 5

Clare Presland mezzo soprano
Eniko Magyar viola
Vicky Yannoula piano

The haunting vocal qualities of the viola, especially in the hands of a master performer, lie at the centre of this concert. Brahms’s magical and evocative Op. 91 songs are perhaps the most famous example of this phenomenon, with the viola effectively as second singer, supported and coloured with highly expressive piano writing. They are complemented here with songs for the same forces by Strauss, Bridge and Loeffler, with other Romantic lieder, and with music by Vaughan Williams and the remarkable American composer, Lillian Fuchs.

Pre-concert Foyer performance - The Jigsaw Players - Sunday 9th February, 5.45pm

Kaija Lukas – violin
Tetsuumi Nagata – viola
Reinoud Ford – cello

Launching their 6th season, the Jigsaw Players have established themselves as an essential part of Wimbledon’s musical scene.

Praised as “magnificent” and “thrilling”, the Jigsaw Players are a compelling group of professional musicians who have been  bringing exceptional classical chamber music and jazz concerts as well as educational projects to the Wimbledon and Merton area.

They have gained the support of the community as well as from prestigious Patrons such as Vladimir Jurowski, Principal Conductor of London Philharmonic Orchestra and Jean-Yves Thibaudet, internationally acclaimed pianist and Kim Kashkashian, renowned viola player.

The musicians for each programme are drawn from a pool of players, all of them international prize winners, members of England’s most prestigious orchestras (London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra & Philharmonia Orchestra) and/or of internationally renowned chamber music groups (the Doric String Quartet, the Heath String Quartet and the Aronowitz Ensemble).

The Jigsaw Players are equally dedicated to making music accessible to everyone, especially sparking the love of music to children. They have numerous projects for children lined up for this season. For more information please refer to our Jigsaw Juniors section.
