In the final concert of their 2016 Season, The Giovanni Consort present a program celebrating the great genius of Percy Grainger. We are delighted to be joined by guest director, Dr Peter Tregear, Royal Holloway London, to shine a unique light on this fun, colourful and brilliant music.

Grainger was the quintessential renaissance man of 20th Century Music. He shunned the establishment and had little regard for he the “high art” for which he was expected to aspire. However, in the unconventional manner and forms in which he wrote, there is incredible genius and music of great beauty. This is abundantly clear from the esteem with which he was held by the great composers of his day- Britten, Vaughan Williams and Grieg were great admirers of his work.

In this concert we will perform some of this most famous choral compositions, songs and folk song arrangements, including I’ll Be Seventeen Come Sunday, Brigg Fair, Irish Tune from County Derry and the sublime Mo Nighean Dubh.

We are delighted to be joined by the solo talents of Lucy Mervik and Thomas Friberg in some of Grainger’s beloved songs, masterfully accompanied by Stewart Smith.

This is sure to be an unmissable concert!
