A thrilling end to the season! Here is Adrian Hattrell's review of yesterday evening's concert.

Champagne moments

An enthusiastic audience at Tickhill Music Society was treated to a night at the opera by four maestros at the last concert of the season – Clare Wheat (soprano), Sally Perkins (mezzo soprano), David Watkin – Holmes (tenor) and Thomas D Hopkinson (bass). They were brilliantly accompanied by Jonathan Gooing at the piano, who also gave informative and entertaining introductions to each group of songs.
The group took the audience on an operatic journey, starting with Handel and finishing with Britten. The pieces were not delivered in statuesque fashion but were acted out, with (for example) Rodolfo and Mimi from La Bohéme continuing their duet out of sight as they left the make-believe garret. For any not familiar with opera the concert was an insight into the delights of this art form; for opera buffs it was an opportunity to revel in familiar arias by Verdi, Mozart and Puccini.
The evening was rounded off with a rousing encore in the form of the toast to champagne from Die Fledermaus, which perfectly captured the mood of the audience.

Adrian Hattrell's review of our March concert

Flying Fingers

A piano recital at Tickhill Music Society always attracts a good audience, and the recent performance by the young French pianist Emmanuel Despax was no exception. Parisian by birth, but resident in England from a young age, he presented a programme of monumental works from the 19thcentury, starting with “Prélude, Choral et Fugue” by César Franck. This is a challenging piece, written by an organist for the piano, and requiring the performer to execute a great deal of work with left hand crossed over right. Despite resembling a test piece, this was carried off with apparent ease.

The Franck was followed by a piece in similar mould by Franz Liszt, “Après une lecture du Dante: Fantasia quasi Sonata”. A torrent of notes was navigated effortlessly, and the contrasting quiet passages were treated delicately.

The second half was occupied by a single work, Schubert’s B flat Sonata, composed a month or two before his death. This was more familiar territory for the audience, and presented a safe haven after the storms of the first half. Emmanuel played with calm mastery and received deserving applause for a commanding performance.
