Composer Julian Marshall
St Michael s Church, Framlingham
30th April 2016
Julian Marshall s long career as a songwriter and composer spans 70s pop stardom with the bands Marshall Hain, The Flying Lizards and Eye to Eye, through to work as a mature composer of classical forms, including the celebrated choral music publications Out of the Darkness (2009) and The Angel in the Forest (2012) written for some of today s top performers.
As co-founder, and creative director of, the London Song Company, as well as senior lecturer at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London, Julian Marshall has nurtured his passion for teaching. However, composition takes a center-stage role in Julian s professional life. It is with great pleasure that he is bringing the new work Dark Disputes and Artful Teasing to St Michael s Church, Framlingham, on 30th April 2016.
And this tour celebrates his newly-signed contract with Novello Publishing.
Often inspired by great poets as a basis for his compositional narrative, this new piece features settings of William Blake s famous Songs of Innocence and Experience.
I had enormous fun writing these pieces, says Julian. Blake is a dream of a poet to set to music, as so many before me have discovered . From Vaughan Williams to Benjamin Britten, Blake s words have been popularly brought to life through music.
Blake s subject matter juxtaposes spiritual quest and romantic ideals with the harsh realities of life an insightful social comment which intrigues Julian.
Providing great scope for compositional exploration, Julian carefully selected fourteen poems and, transformed through sound, the settings feature a broad stylistic and expressive range, rather like you re in Kings College Chapel one minute and then in a kind of surreal Ronnie Scott s the next ! describes the composer.
The premiere performance in Suffolk is not only a wonderful opportunity for residents to experience top caliber music making in the comfort of their home town, but it is also hugely exciting to host the pre-eminent British tenor, James Gilchrist1, who will perform there for the first time.
I love working with Julian, expresses James, who has previously performed his work, his music speaks to people so directly and powerfully.
Dark Disputes and Artful Teasing is written for an intimate ensemble of eight unaccompanied singers, with tenor soloist. James Gilchrist will be joined in performance by Rubythroat, an exciting and innovative vocal group from Trinity Laban College of Music and Dance.
Under the baton of up-and-coming conductor, George Jackson, the performers wonderfully conjure atmospheres envisaged by Julian Marshall.
This promises to be a highly enjoyable evening of music, and you are advised to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Remaining tickets can be bought on the night (doors open 6.45pm, performance starts 7.30pm).
Profits will go to the charity Place 2 Be , who support young people with mental health issues a subject that resonates through the life and works of Blake.

Norfolk sets the scene for two award winning films
Two award winning films, shot on location in Norfolk will be screened at 3 village venues across the county in Creative Arts East s new Village Screen Extra programme, part of a BFI Film Audience Network project.
45 Years , starring renowned British Actors Charlotte Rampling, Geraldine James and Tom Courtenay treats audiences to open landscape views of the Norfolk Broads and Norwich, and The Goob shot in the rural fenland countryside of West Norfolk, are sure to feature many recognisable locations for local audiences. Both films also proudly made use of locally born or based actors, extras and production teams to lend more authenticity and regional voices to the productions.
45 Years was released to great critical acclaim, and has garnered an array of awards and nominations including a BAFTA nomination for Outstanding British Film 2015, an Oscar nomination for Charlotte Rampling, and Berlin International Film Festival Silver Berlin Bear awards for both Tom Courtenay and Charlotte Rampling.
The Goob stars actor Liam Walpole from Dereham, who was discovered and catapulted into his first screen role by Norwich based director Guy Myhill. Actor Sean Harris, originally from Lowestoft, and Hannah Spirrett ( S-Club 7 and Primeval ) also appear in this edgy coming of age film, which premiered at Norwich s iconic Cinema City in May 2015.
Written in Dust
A silent glimpse of contemporary Beijing, in a tragic tale both old and new
Two Norfolk villages are set to host a beautiful silent film, made for the modern age, and with roots which come from another rural community thousands of miles away in the fields of China.
Written in Dust is the story of three young migrants who travel from their countryside home for the promise of a new and better life in the modern city of Beijing.
But the lure of the city and the oppression of love lead to a path of betrayal, corruption, heartache and ultimate tragedy.
Shot with classic cinematic sensibility Written in Dust shows a rarely seen side of contemporary Beijing, with a powerful story that resonates universally. The film offers audiences a glimpse into the hidden world of this enigmatic city through a skilful blend of silent film, tragic story and specially composed live music.
Classical Chinese musician, Ling Peng and pianist and guitarist, Andy Middleton, provide an inspired live fusion of traditional Chinese instruments and modern music to underpin the story, which translates without need for words.
This is the second chance to see this extraordinary film at Hilgay Village Hall, which was first screened in the summer of 2014, and takes place on Friday 12th February at 7.30pm, before moving on to St. Mary s Church, Banham on Saturday 5th March at 7.30pm.
The show is suitable for ages 16+.
These events are organised in partnership with Creative Arts East with funding by Arts Council England, BFI Film Audience Network, Norfolk County Council, South Norfolk District Council and Breckland Council.
