Major Concert Dates 2024

From Italy With Love

27th April 2024 | 7.30pm at St John’s Church, Cauldwell Hall Road, Ipswich
Conducted by Stephen Rumsey

This programme started as a tribute to Puccini whose death occurred 100 years ago. His musical legacy in
terms of opera is immeasurable. Sadly, he wrote little music in other genres, but tonight’s inclusion of his Messa
di Gloria spans the sacred with a distinctive operatic flavour. The work of a young composer, his true style had
yet to fully develop, but the seeds of that can be heard in this tuneful work. His near contemporaries are represented – with the programme including Italian music from the baroque to the celebrated film score for The Mission by Ennio Morricone who died in 2020 at the age of 91 (and was still conducting !).

Sea Fever

14th September 2024 | 7.30pm at Snape Maltings Concert Hall
Conducted by Emeritus Professor Chris Green OBE

Trianon could not pass over an opportunity to present a programme themed around “the sea” given the
proximity of tonight’s venue to the wonderful Suffolk coastline. The programme starts with a recently
orchestrated version of Sir Malcolm Arnold’s Padstow Lifeboat, written whilst he was living in Cornwall. The
rest of the programme includes some works reflecting the great tradition of British “light” music.
