Birthday set to music

Old Phil friend Kathryn Stott brings more of her musical buddies to special party

Published on November 25th 2008.

Birthday set to music

Kathryn Stott’s 30-year relationship with Liverpool and the Philharmonic Hall continues as she returns next week to celebrate her 50th birthday in the company of 25 of her closest colleagues.

Travelling from all over the world, these extraordinary musicians will collaborate in pieces for ten celli, eight pianos, four guitars and premieres by Graham Fitkin and Giovanni Sollima in what promises to be an exciting evening.

Kathryn Stott is one of Britain’s most versatile and imaginative musicians. Her curiosity and wide-ranging musical interests have taken her in many different directions, forging a unique career and establishing a rare reputation. A natural collaborator, she is greatly in demand for chamber music alliances, playing with some of the world’s leading instrumentalists, as well as appearing on major international concert platforms in recitals and concerto performances. She has also directed several distinctive concert series and festivals and has built up an extensive and exceptionally varied catalogue of recordings. Consequently, she has made a fair few friends and the way, many of whom will be joining her on Wednesday December 4 at the Liverpool Phil, with all proceeds going to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and St Stephen’s Aids Trust.

Stott's constantly expanding horizons have led her to become a remarkable exponent of tango and other Latin dance music, reflected in her collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma, who will be appearing, on the Grammy Award-winning Sony CD Soul of the Tango (The Music of Astor Piazzolla) and its successor Obrigado Brazil.

Also lining up for this special Phil performance are Jonathan Aasgard, Odair Assad, Sergio Assad, Elizabeth Burley, Thomas Carroll, Natalie Clein, Peter Dixon, Nelson Goerner, Leonid Gorokhov, Hermitage String Trio, Guy Johnston, Jin Ju, Peter Katona, Zoltan Katona, Piers Lane, Yo-Yo Ma, Murray Mclachlan, Noriko Ogawa, Christian Poltera, Martin Roscoe, Valeriy Sokolov, Giovanni Sollima and Nicholas Trygstad.

The programme will feature works by Dvorák, Piazzolla, Ravel and fantastic arrangements of Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries and Strauss’ Blue Danube.
