MICHAEL FINNISSY: CELEBRATING 20 YEARS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON

The University of Southampton Music Department bring together professional and students musicians to celebrate composer Michael Finnissy’s contribution to the musical life of the University. Michael will retire at the end of the academic year following twenty years as Chair in Composition.

Susanna Eastburn (Sound and Music) leads a symposium, discussing and reflecting on Michael’s work as a composer and educator. Singer Lucy Goddard and cellist Nicola Heinrich perform excerpts and world premieres of works with the composer himself at the piano, including ‘Mozart Requiem K626 – A New Completion’, war-time text setting Remembrance Day, and works inspired by department connections with Taiwan and China. Pianists Mark Knoop and Roderick Chadwick, with whom Michael frequently worked on new compositions, perform Wild Flowers and ‘Five Uncharacteristic Marches with Three Trios’. The concert will conclude with a performance of ‘Notre-Dame Polyphony’ by students and staff colleagues as a reminder of the enormous impact Michael has had on composition and contemporary music teaching in the Music Department at the University of Southampton.

SUSO Gala Concert 2018

Presented by Southampton University Symphony Orchestra

Following four back-to-back sets of record-breaking ticket sales, SUSO launched its first December concert of the 2017/18 season in exactly the way it hopes to continue. On its upward trajectory towards the 100th anniversary celebrations, we now announce our partnership with Russian-British soloist Dunja Lavrova, who has astonished audiences in Russia and Europe performing Dvorak’s Violin Concerto. Known as one of the most difficult violin concertos in the repertoire, the beautiful sweeping melodies coupled with her ingenious musicality make this a performance not to be missed.

In the spirit of SUSO’s annual Gala concert, A London Symphony by Vaughan Williams provides a perfect showcase opportunity for the best classical musicians at the University. You will be swept through the bustling streets of London before taking a stroll down the River Thames as the bells of Westminster ring in your ears. The programme is rounded out with one of Johannes Brahms’ greatest works, his Tragic Overture. This concert is likely to sell out so book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
