Allan Schiller in Concert

Friday 6th October, 7:30 pm

Venue: All Saints Church Woodchurch

Details: Renowned concert pianist ALLAN SCHILLER has kindly agreed to perform to help raise money for Woodchurch CE Primary School, where his granddaughter Sofya attends, and the All Saints Renovation Fund. Allan Schiller is widely regarded as one of the finest pianists of his generation. Early studies were with Fanny Waterman in his native Leeds, and these were followed by an intensive period of training with the distinguished pianist Denis Matthews. He subsequently became the first British pianist to be awarded a scholarship at the Moscow Conservatoire, where he joined the class of Professor Victor Merzhanov. His performing career began at the age of nine when he played a movement of a Haydn concerto with the Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra at a series of concerts for school children. But only a few months later he was soloist in a Mozart concerto with the Halle Orchestra under the great Sir John Barbirolli. Whilst still a teenager Allan appeared at both the Edinburgh Festival and the Promenade Concerts with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Since those early days he has developed a career that has seen him performing with all the major British orchestras under such conductors as Bernard Haitink and Georg Solti, and giving hundreds of recitals and playing chamber music with some of the top instrumentalists and quartets. He has been a regular and popular BBC artist, and his commercial recordings cover a vast repertoire and span a period of 50 years. He brings to his performances an innate musicality allied to a beauty of touch – critics praise the clarity of his playing and his ability to make the piano sing. He is, perhaps, primarily identified with his interpretation of Mozart's works, and one of his most highly acclaimed recordings was of two concertos with the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Sir Charles Mackerras. His most recent discs feature piano quartets by Mozart, piano duets by Schubert and a solo recital of works by Beethoven, Mozart and Schumann. His concert work now includes recitals on luxury cruise liners and talks on his long and interesting career. In 2017 he published ‘Music Made Me’, a fascinating story of his life in music, and filled with anecdotes and insights into the profession which will be available to buy at the Woodchurch concert. Allan moved to Bristol over 30 years ago and immediately felt at home there despite being a 'professional' Yorkshireman! After a short introduction the performance will begin at 8pm. There will be refreshments available to buy before and during the interval. Contact Laura laurarees8@gmail.com / 07968333261 for more details

Othello

Saturday 28th October, 7:30 pm

Venue: St Mildred's Church, Tenterden

Details: Othello is William Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy about racism, betrayal, envy, love, hate, lust, revenge, repentance, manipulation and murder. The play is one of Shakespeare’s finest pieces, focusing on the love story of the black military general, Othello, and his white wife, Desdemona, who are ridiculed for their relationship because of racial prejudice. Othello’s standard bearer, Iago, is the antagonist of the plot, manipulating everyone around him to bring Othello’s reputation down by any means possible. This intense and gritty tragedy is brought to life by Bowler Crab Productions, a professional Shakespearean theatre company based in East Sussex. Whilst edited down for a more consumable running time, this production of Othello nonetheless sticks strictly to the original Jacobean language and storyline, a tale which (even 400 years after its first performance) is particularly relatable to our modern day society. Othello is the company’s 11th Shakespearean production to date since its founding in 2013 and will be on tour in Sussex and Kent throughout October, November and December 2017. A Bowler Crab production.
