Fri 15 & Sat 16 March 2024 : Mike Denham et al – jazz

Mike Denham

On Friday 15 March : “Clarinet Marmalade” – Following the success of last year’s performance, reeds player Trevor Whiting joins Mike Denham at the piano for an evening of duets. Trevor is one of the finest clarinettists on the UK jazz scene and, not surprisingly, he is first choice for several London-based ensembles. However, Trevor lives in Dorset and describes Tincleton Gallery as one of his favourite venues. Expect to hear this reflected in his playing as he and Mike explore the repertoire from Sidney Bechet to Benny Goodman, with several stops between.

Then on Sat 16 March : “Ragtime meets Boogie” – solos and duets. International blues and boogie woogie star Julian Phillips joins ragtime expert Mike Denham to explore these two remarkable, contrasting piano styles which emerged alongside one another in the early 20th Century. Julian has a great reputation for his wide and varied repertoire, playing in a truly authentic way. He appears at festivals around Europe and the USA alongside other top performers in the genre.

Fri 23 & Sat 24 Feb 2024 : Ida Pelliccioli – classical piano

We start 2024 with the superb classical panist Ida Pelliccioli who is travelling from Paris to play for us. Ida Pelliccioli was born in Bergamo, Italy. She studied at the Nice Conservatoire de Région and at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris. During her studies, Ida Pelliccioli was awarded several scholarships. Ida chose to avoid the international competition circuit and, before becoming a full-time pianist, received a double master diploma at the Sorbonne University – in Italian Literature and in Ancient Greek History. Ida tours internationally as well as teaching at Paris Conservatoire with a class of 35 students. We are thrilled that she is travelling from Paris especially to play for us in Tincleton. The programme will be D. Scarlatti, W.A. Mozart, M. Blasco de Nebra, and F. Schubert. The inspiration behind this programme is the forgotten music of Spanish composer from Sevilla, Manuel Blasco de Nebra (1750-1784). The heir to Scarlatti in many respects, he was moreover a composer well aware of what was happening elsewhere in Europe in the 1770s. His expressive world is far more searching than Scarlatti, a quality that sometimes reminds us of the music of Mozart and Haydn and pre announces Schubert and even Chopin.
