Locrians Mozart by Candlelight

World renowned music ensemble to play at High Head Castle, Ivegill, nr Carlisle, CA4 0PN on 27th July 2009

The internationally-renowned Locrian Ensemble is bringing ‘Mozart by Candlelight’ to High Head Castle as a fundraiser for Annie Mawson’s Sunbeams Music Trust. The Concert, will take place on July 27th at the spectacular High Head Castle and will feature the music of Mozart. The Locrians will wear evocative period costumes, and within the dramatic setting, the evening will blend period delights, a delicious Hog Roast feast and virtuoso musicianship amongst stunning surroundings. The Locrian Ensemble are top classical musicians working in London, and have such a busy and varied schedule that they are considered one of the most dynamic groups working in the field of British classical music today.

Bringing together some of the most prominent string soloists in London, THE LOCRIAN ENSEMBLE was formed in 1995 by Sunbeams Patron Justin Pearson and has established an enviable reputation for its recordings, broadcasts and live performances. The group frequently expands, and this provides a vehicle for concerto playing for the group’s key members. For instance, the Locrian Ensemble regularly performs at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, presenting programmes of baroque and classical music, whilst also enlarging, when required, into a compact chamber orchestra.

The Locrian Ensemble are frequently heard on television and on film. Recent recordings include the score for Oscar Wilde’s Fairy Stories in Dublin, as well as Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter film scores. They have also notably supplied the music for popular television series such as “My Uncle Silas”, “Stig of the Dump”, “Animal Hospital” and “Judge John Deed”. Annie Mawson of Sunbeams Music Trust said; ‘We are so fortunate to have the world-renowned Cellist, Justin Pearson as one of Sunbeam’s Musical Patrons, who brings to Cumbria Britain’s busiest and most sought after chamber music group.’

Christopher Terry, who is providing the venue is a big supporter of Sunbeams and has a keen interest in the work that the Trust does in promoting awareness of and integration amongst deprived and disabled communities in Cumbria.

The evening will start at 5pm with a Jazz Band, a Hog Roast at 7pm followed by the Locrians.
