"What's the story?"

What's the story?

Press review / Vivien Window / Harborough Mail

LAST WORD PRODUCTIONS ...[Clio Burroughs (soprano), Susan Moore (contralto) and ... Timothy Muller]. Only three people to present such strong chorus songs as “Do you Hear the People Sing” from Les Mis? Yes, and it worked brilliantly. Clio singing Alfie Boe’s hit “Bring him Home” was gorgeous. They took on the difficult Sondheim songs with ease, romping through the intricacies of “A Weekend in the Country” from “A Little Night Music”. Susan is known for her ability to bring comedy to a song but “Send in the Clowns” in her rich contralto voice was unforgettable.

"Variations on a theme"

Variations on a theme

A programme of passion, lyricism and virtuosity with Joseph Spooner, cello, and Nicholas Bosworth, piano.

Programme includes:
Beethoven, Sonata no. 3
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Variations
Martinu, Variations on a Slovak Theme

Cellist Joseph Spooner's work as a soloist, chamber musician and recording artist has taken him across the UK, France, the Netherlands and Russia. His work with various contemporary music ensembles has included performances at major festivals and broadcasts on BBC Radio and Channel 4. Future plans include a series of chamber concerts in New York. Joseph plays a Nicholas Vuillaume cello of c.1865. Nicholas Bosworth needs no introduction to Opera Minima audiences. His "superb piano accompaniment deftly [evoking] the sumptuousness of the orchestral score" has often prompted them to request a recital. They will be delighted with this collaboration with Joseph Spooner
