Four: Zero Autumn 2010
Following a successful debut earlier in 2010, the De La Warr Pavilion in association with Chimera Productions, is delighted to present Four:Zero; the second production of this original classical concert series which takes in the cornerstones of the solo, duo, trio and quartet repertoire.
For this season, the stellar line-up of world class performers and rising stars select their own programme from two broad themes; romanticism and folk influence. Imaginative and inspiring, each will feature a number of the most pivotal compositions of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
“Joanna MacGregor's career is practically built on a reinvention of the star virtuoso tradition, applied to the often cerebral and style-oblivious world of contemporary music.”
(BBC Classical Review, Joanna MacGregor ‘Play’ album, March 2004)
Joanna MacGregor is thought of as one of the world’s most wide-ranging and innovative musicians, pursuing a life connecting genres of music that defies categorisation. She has performed in over sixty countries, often appearing as a solo artist with many of the world's leading orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, London and Sydney Symphony Orchestras. Her work with eminent conductors including Pierre Boulez and Sir Simon Rattle and her performances premiering landmark compositions has earned her a reputation as an incredible talent in classical music.
Her experience in the world of chamber music is wide and various; she has curated concerts at distinguished venues such as the South Bank and the Royal Albert Hall (for the BBC Proms) in London. Exploring new ground, Joanna MacGregor made her conducting debut in 2002 and regularly directs her own orchestral projects. Her programmes have ranged from Bach, Mozart and Beethoven concerti to new commissions and collaborations with jazz musicians.
Her music has taken her far and wide, including a tour in South Africa that saw her play with jazz artist Moses Molelekwa. She has recroded with pop artist and tabla player Talvin Singh and last summer she took part in a major new project with the legendary producer Brian Eno.
The Four: Zero series provides an opportunity for musicians to select their own programme from two wide themes; romanticism and folk influence. See below for the programme as selected by Joanna MacGregor.
