Charles Timberlake - Piano Recital
Be moved… be calmed… be inspired… be uplifted…
Pianist and composer Charles Timberlake will be giving an
informal lunchtime piano recital in Rochester Cathedral
on Saturday 8th August at 12.05 pm.
This will be Charles’ seventh recital in Rochester, in a county
he loves – he taught at Yardley Court School, Tonbridge,
from 1982 until 1993.
Charles has produced ten CD albums of piano and
instrumental music, the last eight in collaboration with
composer John Daniels. Their music has featured on
Radio 2’s Good Morning Sunday and Sunday Hour.
On 8th August Charles will be playing a programme of his
compositions, hymns (both modern and traditional)
and well-known ballads, and visitors are invited to sit and listen or to
wander around the cathedral during the recital. Admission is free.
The Sixteen: Handel's Dixit Dominus
The Sixteen choir and orchestra devote an entire evening to the glorious music of Handel, including his virtuosic Dixit Dominus. Conductor Harry Christophers introduces the programme:
‘Handel is one of only a handful of composers who was truly multi-faceted - a master of orchestral and vocal textures, both triumphant and profound. Simply compare the bustling, joyous activity of the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba with the dark, anxious apprehension of the Overture to Jephtha, and you will know exactly what I mean. However, it is majestic grandeur, alongside moments of exquisite tenderness, which overridingly characterise all the works in this programme.’
