Lunchtime Concert Series

Lunchtime Concert Series April - Julian Meztger (cello)

Thu 25 Apr, 1pm

Ensemble Room
Tickets: £5, FREE for Under 26s
Julian Meztger joins us for an hour of cello music during April's lunchtime concert.

Cellist Julian Metzger has an exciting multifaceted career as a chamber musician, orchestral player, soloist and teacher.

Apart from regular appearances in the United Kingdom, concerts have taken him throughout Europe and the Far East where delighted audiences have often praised his technically and musically exciting interpretations.

Drawing on a rare depth of emotions combined with a rich palate of sound colours, Julian has become a sought-after chamber musician collaborating with eminent performers such as oboist Christopher Redgate, flautist Lisa Nelsen, violist Robert Secret, violinists Charles Sewart and Giovanni Guzzo and pianists Marco Fatichenti and Paul Turner to name but a few.

These collaborations have taken place on concert platforms worldwide and at festivals such as the Buckingham Summer Festival, Beaminster Festival, Malcolm Arnold Festival, Musicfest Aberystwyth and the International Casals Festival in El Vendrell.

In 2018 Julian and his friend Marco Fatichenti ran their own festival, the Elysian Music Festival, for the first time.

Lunchtime Concert Series May - Lawrence White (baritone) & Rupert Jeffcoat (piano)

Thu 9 May, 1pm

Ensemble Room
Tickets: £5, FREE for Under 26s
We welcome baritone Lawrence White and pianist Rupert Jeffcoat to our series this month.

Lawrence Rupert explore themes of patriotic and romantic love, as depicted in the early 20th century by some of England's most beloved song composers.

The programme includes Butterworth's beautifully evocative Songs from A Shropshire Lad, as well as Quilter's irresistible To Julia, and a selection of Peter Warlock's finest romantic miniatures.

Lawrence has enjoyed a varied career in vocal music for over twenty years. His solo recording credits include works by Mozart and Bach, as well as cante flamenco and the chant of the Knights Templar, while concert performances include the War Requiem at Coventry Cathedral, St. Matthew Passion at Birmingham Symphony Hall, and singing songs by Dire Straits on the Acropolis in Athens.

Since graduating from Cambridge, Scottish-born keyboard whizz Rupert has become well known as an accompanist of distinction for singers and instrumentalists. Also a prize-winning organist, he has broadcast with the BBC Singers and recorded as continuo player with Emma Kirkby.

Lawrence and Rupert cemented their professional relationship by discussing song repertoire and parenting hacks over a post-concert pint.

Lunchtime Concert Series June - David Gordon (piano)

Thu 13 June, 1pm

Ensemble Room
Tickets: £5, FREE for Under 26s
To conclude our Lunchtime Concert Series this season, we welcome back jazz pianist extraordinaire David Gordon.

Brazilian choro, Argentinian tango, American bebop and original jazz-based compositions - perhaps even a classical bon mot - will all contribute to David Gordon’s programme for this lunchtime concert.

All infused with sonic warmth, a searching improvisational feel, a deep love of melody and a compendious enthusiasm for harmony - and a willingness to share this with the Warwick audience. Not to be missed.
