SEVENOAKS LITERARY FESTIVAL: JANE AUSTEN’S MUSIC
SHIP THEATRE, WALTHAMSTOW HALL SCHOOL, HOLLYBUSH LANE, SEVENOAKS TN13 3UL
2017 is the bicentenary of Jane Austen’s death, and who better to provide a fitting tribute than soprano Rosie Lomas and pianist Katarzyna Kowalik from Literary Music?

Rosie Lomas and Katarzyna are young classically trained musicians who perform programmes inspired by the works of some of our best-loved authors. Combining music and song together with spirited readings by Rosie, Jane Austen’s Music explores music in Regency society and in Jane Austen’s life and novels. Emma Kirkby praised Literary Music for its combination of ‘lovely sounds, historical awareness and enthusiasm, giving fresh life to words and music’.

This will be a treat for lovers of music and Jane Austen.

Double Entendre - Music for Two Harpsichords
St Michael's Battersea, Cobham Close, London SW11 6SP
A double entendre is a figure of speech or a particular way of wording that is devised to be understood in either of two ways, having a double meaning (typically one of the interpretations is rather obvious whereas the other is more subtle). Two young exciting harpsichordists: Katarzyna Kowalik and Pawel Siwczak are both Polish, both studied with same teachers (with Wladyslaw Klosiewicz in Warsaw and with Carole Cerasi in London), and both are based in London, no wonder they decided to form a harpsichord duo as a result of their common passion. Their ‘double entendre’ programme for two harpsichords is a perfect opportunity to explore the subtleties of the harpsichord music and it’s double meanings filtered by two different minds of these inquisitive and imaginative harpsichordists.

'I love a ballad' - Shakespeare Songs in the 19th Century
King's College, London
'Come gather, fine ladies and gentlemen, for an evening of song and scholarship. In this event, Oskar Cox Jensen will be discussing the subject of Shakespeare and Song in the 18th and 19th centuries, accompanied by expert performers in historical practice from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Foregoing the solemn lieder and art-song of the German and Italian traditions, the focus here is on English song in all its diversity, from rough topical ditties sung in the gutter, to the loveliest works of Arne and Linley. We will hear how theatrical composers updated and expanded the songs within Shakespeare's plays; see how Shakespeare's lyrics made their way into the street and the alehouse; and laugh and grimace at comic takes on the Tragedies from burlesques and the music hall.'

Devonia Concert Series: Sonatas & Arias of German Baroque
Devonia Church, Islington, London N1 8JJ
George Frideric Handel and Carl Philip Emanuel Bach were two of the most prominent German composers of the 18th-Century. They received a similar education and their careers flourished roughly around the same time. This is, however, where the similarities end.

These two giants of baroque music never had an opportunity to meet in person. Although they enjoyed and respected each other’s work, their compositional styles could not be more different.

Join us for the recital which juxtaposes the Italian style of Handel’s works with the jarring and extravagant harmonies of CPE Bach and gives the two composers a chance to "meet" on one stage.

Handel House Museum, London
Harpsichordist Katarzyna Kowalik presents a musical journey through Europe, Africa, the Americas, and the Far East, illustrating the cultural differences and national features captured in the harpsichord music by Frenchmen: Lully, Couperin, Rameau, D'Anglebert, Forqueray, Moyreau, Noblet and Royer.

The idea of the portraying nationalities was quite common in the baroque era: In 1726 François Couperin published a collection of four pieces under the title Les Nations - a chamber music tribute to four European nations, which includes 4 types: The Franchise, The Spanish, The Imperial, The Piedmontese. Jean Philippe Rameau follows the baroque fascination in anything exotic. His opera-ballet Les Indes galantes (1735) is thought to refer to exotic lands, not specifically the Indies, but anywhere remote enough to its contemporary audience. The opera consists of the following parts: The Gracious Turk, The Incas of Peru, The Flowers (of Persia), The Savages (with genuine American origins: in 1725 Rameau had heard two Louisiana Indians singing a catchy melody at a Paris fair, and had later made a harpsichord version of it under the title of “Les sauvages”).

Katarzyna explores not only the national features of the most significant European styles and exotic references, but also presents lesser known titles such us: La Canadienne, La Chinoisse and La Japonoisse by Christophe Moyreau as well as La Hongroise by Charles Noblet.

Katarzyna Kowalik is part of Handel House Talent, an new scheme to further the career development of promising young professional baroque music performers.

British Harpsichord Society Recital: Double Entendre
Handel House Museum, London
A double entendre is a figure of speech or a particular way of wording that is devised to be understood in two ways or having a double meaning (typically one being obvious whereas the other is more subtle). Two Polish harpsichordists: Katarzyna Kowalik and Pawel Siwczak, both studied with the same teachers (with Wladyslaw Klosiewicz in Warsaw and with Carole Cerasi in London), are based in London and so their ‘double entendre’ programme for two harpsichords will explore these subtleties in music and its double meanings.

Handel House Talent: Caoimhe de Paor
Handel House Museum, London
Caoimhe de Paor (recorders) and Katarzyna Kowalik (harpsichord) present a programme centred around the repertoire of the Stylus Phantasticus movement from the 17th century, a style which has its roots initially in the improvisational and virtuosic style of organ toccatas and fantasias of composers such as Merulo and Frescobaldi, and which was later transmitted north through composers like Froberger.

British Harpsichord Society Recital: Landowska in London
Handel House Museum, London
Wanda Landowska, Polish-French harpsichordist, pianist, musicologist and teacher, was passionate about early music and a leader in the harpsichord revival at the beginning of the 20th century. She is the subject of this lecture-recital led by harpsichordist Kasia Tomczak-Feltrin who will be joined by her Polish colleagues Katarzyna Kowalik and Pawel Siwczak.

This will also be an opportunity to present a project of the French ‘Association pour la Sauvegarde de l’auditorium de Wanda Landowska’ from St Leu la Foret, Parisian suburb, where in 1927 Landowska created her Temple de la Musique Ancienne: auditorium, school, recording space, and meeting place of the intellectual and artistic elite of the twenties and thirties. Today the association is about to return this place to its former glory through creation of a Harpsichord and Early Music centre.

The programme will include Landowska’s favourite repertoire as well as her own harpsichord compositions.

Handel House, London
Jane Clark introduces the complete harpsichord works of Rameau, briefly explaining their background. The style of the 1706 suite harks back to the 17th century with its opening unmeasured prelude and following dances. In the 1724 suites Rameau introduced several new techniques which he claimed to have invented and which were copied by Domenico Scarlatti who visited Paris in 1724 & 1725. This will be referred to and the far from obvious titles of some of the pieces will be explored.
