Archaeus Quartet Beethoven Series Concert 4

St Mary’s Church, Salehurst

Saturday 27 October

7.30pm

On Saturday October 27th The Archaeus Quartet will continue their cycle of the complete quartets of Beethoven.

This programme includes Op. 95 in f minor known as “the Serioso”.

This dramatic work will be followed by the more genial Op.10 number 3 in D major a charming work almost Mozartian in character. The second half of the concert will be devoted to the epic Op.1321 in C sharp minor.

This was the quartet which Beethoven considered his greatest of all. Incidentally, Schubert also shared this opinion.

NB Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult

Tickets available now for members only. On sale to general public 4-6 weeks prior to the event

Odette

Robertsbridge Club

Friday 30 November

8pm

 

Recently described as “a star in the making” by Clive Davies of The Sunday Times for her debut album A Shake of the Hand, Odette is a young singer, songwriter and guitarist.

Odette is well travelled and keen to make music with a ‘world’ appeal. Passionate about inner well-being, her music is a fresh and uplifting blend of R&B, folk, world and pop that has already attracted rave reviews from the press. Odette will be accompanied by a quartet of musicians on guitar, bass, drums/percussion, and violin.

Odette is a huge British talent. If you haven’t ‘discovered’ her yet, you are missing a treat..as smooth, seductive, and soulful a voice as you’ll hear anywhere, minus the cliches. Highly recommended

The Last Baguette: The Little Match Girl

Robertsbridge Village Hall

Thursday 27 December

5pm

A family show for Christmas inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s traditional tale. London. Christmas Eve. The snow is falling. A little girl struggles fiercely through the cold. We follow her throughout the day as she encounters the funny and zany characters of the vibrant city streets. In an attempt to stay warm she strikes a match, then a second and third. In the cold the flames blaze to life and the flickering fire illuminates her fantastic Christmas visions. With each strike we enter the tumultuous world of her imagination, meeting talking turkeys, dancing rats, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their chattering Christmas tree. The company use their signature style of visual storytelling, live music and puppetry to present this touching, madcap and heart-warming classic Christmas tale.

 

Such a great show…expert physical comedy and storytelling … the live music and song was a real treat too. Stunning costumes, men playing women, puppets, bags of humour for young (and old) it really surpassed all my expectations and was a beautiful way to finish our programme for Christmas.

A Talk by Paul Roberts
To include supper – further details to follow

The George Inn 

Wednesday 6 February 2019
Tickets £17.50 | Priority booking for RAP members
7pm reception, 7.30pm talk, 8.20pm 2-course supper

Between 1830 and 1847 pianist and composer Franz Liszt gave piano recitals in every city across the length and breath of Europe and into the outer reaches of Russia. He became as famous as monarchs and popes. Queen Victoria was entranced when she met him in London, Pope Pius IX left him a visiting card in Rome. Not until Beatle mania in the 20th century would such a phenomenon be repeated.
In this pre-supper talk, pianist, writer and Robertsbridge resident Paul Roberts – much admired and with considerable experience of performing on a concert platform – will reflect upon Liszt’s fame in an age before recorded sound.

“Paul Roberts’ excellence as a writer on music is matched by his superb talents as a pianist. I know of no other figure in the musical world who combines so impressively the roles of scholar and performer.”  Richard Goode
