Brief posts today for the very good reason that we are at a concert this evening. If you can't make it to Norwich Cathedral this what you will be missing:
Poulenc Quatre motets pour un temps de penitence
Poulenc Exultate deo
Poulenc Salve regina
Messiaen Les offrandes oubliées
Susan Gritton soprano (left), Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge ,
Polyphony and Britten Sinfonia
Stephen Layton conductor
Now, that is what I call a concert! But if you can't make it to Norwich, fear not. The concert is being repeated in Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge (where Stephen Layton has recently been appointed Director of Music), tomorrow (April 14). If you can't make that don't sweat, the programme is then being recorded by Hyperion for future release.
I wonder how many of the London-centric critics who bang on endlessly about the death of the classical recording industry will be at either of the concerts, or for that matter how many are even aware they are taking place?
Now read how Polyphony and Hyperion rejuvenated CD sales with the music of a contemporary American composer.
