Accordes! International Chamber Orchestra

Accordes! International Chamber Orchestra


Performances of Serenades for Strings by Tchaikovsky and Fuchs with C19th historical expression.

Accordes! is a professional string orchestra comprised of leading performers who have specialist expertise in C19 historically informed performance. Directed by violinist Claire Holden, Accordes! will perform the much-loved Tchaikovsky Serenade and the an equally beautiful but rarely heard Fuchs Serenade performed by world-class musicians in the beautiful acoustics of SJE Arts.
 
This international group of performers are normally based in different locations around the
globe but are coming together in Oxford to explore innovative approaches to late 19th-century style as part of the AHRC-funded Transforming 19th-Century Historically Informed Practice (TCHIP) research project based at the Music Faculty of the University of Oxford.
 
The concert will be a culmination of an intensive rehearsal and experimentation process that will explore historically evidenced sound and expression including expressive asynchrony. The musicians will be playing on gut strings that are historically appropriate for the late nineteenth-century on their instruments but which are thicker and at higher tension than those used by ‘period’ performers today. This promises to be an exciting concert showcasing a soundworld full of expressive possibilities. 
 
This concert is supported by the OUP John Fell Research Fund and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities.

Duration: 1 hour 30mins with interval
