Music and narration performed by Ensemble 360 and Polly Ives

Presented in partnership with Off the Shelf Festival of Words

Best-selling children’s book, Izzy Gizmo by Pip Jones, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie, tells the enchanting story of an intrepid young inventor who puts her talents to work to rescue a crow that can’t fly. This brand-new family concert brings Izzy’s mechanical marvels and infectious creative spirit to life! Original music by Paul Rissmann features pots, pans, whistles and household items (as well as orchestral instruments). Together with story-telling and visuals from the book, this concert is a great introduction to live music for children. It’s full of wit, invention, songs and actions, and plenty of opportunities to join in.

For 3 – 7 year-olds

SAINT-SAËNS Oboe Sonata (11′)
JÁNAČEK Violin Sonata (17′)
BRAHMS Cello Sonata in F (28′)
MARTINŮ Oboe Quartet (12′)

Ensemble 360 returns with a kaleidoscopic programme. We open with Saint-Saëns’ contemplative and conversational duo for oboe and piano, marking the centenary of the composer’s death, which ripples with the rich, evocative contrasting sounds of this instrumental pairing.

Jánaček’s high-wire act of a violin sonata is delicately chromatic, monumental in scope and shot through with a wistful melancholy. Brahms’s cello sonata is a work of brooding intensity that works through fire and storm to its glowing conclusion. By turns angular and lyrical, Martinů’s dense quartet brings together all four instruments for a thrilling finale to this showcase of chamber music.
