We Will Remember Them
As well as Robert Howard’s Cortège (2015) the concert by Liverpool Mozart Orchestra, under the baton of Jonathan Evans, also includes works by Ravel, Butterworth, Vaughan Williams and Beethoven.
Cortège was composed for South Liverpool Orchestra, David Kernick (co-founder and webmaster of the Prescot Festival), and the 11th Annual Prescot Festival of Music and the Arts. It is a stirring piece for full orchestra – it has a march-like quality, beginning subtly and growing in intensity towards its climax, exhibiting a rousing, rhythmic style that is all the composer’s own. All are welcome to the pre-concert talk at 18:45.
November also sees a performance of Robert’s Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis (2011) at Liverpool (Anglican) Cathedral. Liverpool Cathedral Youth Choir will perform the work under the direction of Stephen Mannings at Evensong on Saturday 24th November at 3pm.
