Divertimento Entertainments: Two Sunday Concerts Bridgetown Totnes 27 April Topsham 18 May 2014 Press Release from Vicky Evans

Divertimento String Quartet

TOTNES COMES TO TOPSHAM

The Totnes based 'Pressenda Ensemble'
will be at St. John's Church, Bridgetown, Totnes
on Sunday 27th April at 3pm

The programme features three Concertos by Vivaldi.

Nicknamed "The Red Priest" because of his hair (not his politics),
he was appointed teacher of violin at the Ospedale della Pietà,
one of four institutions devoted to the care
of orphaned and abandoned children in Venice .

Vivaldi composed over 500 concertos,
mostly intended to be performed
by the youngsters of the school,
probably at the Sunday morning services,
which were reputed to be more like
fully fledged concerts than an act of worship!

Also featured in this programme is music composed
by other musicians equally noted as teachers:

Imogen Holst: Teacher at Dartington College of Arts 1943-5;

Clive Jenkins: Director of Music at Plymouth College (two pieces);

Harold Darke: Organist at St Michael's Cornhill, City of London;

Antonín Dvořák: Composition Teacher, Prague Conservatorium.

Tickets for the Bridgetown concert can be obtained from
Divertimento Entertainments: 01803 863677,
Totnes Tourist Information Centre 01803 863168
or at the door.

«     «     «     «     «

The closely related 'Divertimento String Quartet'
will be visiting St Margaret's Church Topsham
on Sunday 18th May at 4pm.

Tickets for the Topsham concert can be obtained from

Mary O'Shea & Frances Waters Glenorchy Church Exmouth Wednesday 16 April 2014

Frances Waters & Mary O'Shea
Pianist and Soprano
Glenorchy Church Exmouth
12.30pm Wednesday 16 April


A wonderful combination
Piano: Frances Waters
Soprano: Mary O'Shea


It was so sad to hear at the beginning of December last year that Mary O'Shea was unwell and unable to give her soprano recital with pianist Frances Waters at Lupton House. The beautiful venue and would have been the perfect setting for the inauguration of this wonderful new partnership.  Frances and Mary had even got as far as trying out their repertoire at the venue - a trip arranged by Mary's new manager Samantha Goddard of 'Moonstone Management'. Frances had judged the Lupton piano A-OK and Mary was all set to come and discuss their plans on air. What a pity it all came to nothing.

It was not necessary to wait long for a rematch, however. David Lee was very happy to include Mary and Frances in the regular 'season' at  Glenorchy Church in Exmouth. Just four months later Mary's voice rang out in the spring sunshine. What a wonderful day that was!

Together at last

Frances Waters & Mary O'Shea


Mary opened the lunchtime concert with calm authority describing four arias she intended to sing in quick succession. With the joyous memory of her recent wedding - and wedding blessing at Exeter Cathedral with the Counterpoint Choir - Mary opened with Jupiter's aria from Handel's "Semele", "Where'er you Walk". Mary sang this aria at the Cathedral as part of her own wedding blessing which, as Precentor Carl Turner said at the time, is most unusual! Mary's repeat performance, this time with Frances at the piano instead of David Davies playing the Cathedral Organ, was just as delightful.

Frances Waters
accompanies on the Venables piano
"Bist du bei Mir" from Gottfried Stölzel's opera "Diomedes", somehow found its way into Anna Magdalena Bach's second notebook of her husband's works. It follows the marriage theme, but with a darker romantic twist. "If you are with me, I will go gladly to my death." As the original score is lost, it is not clear who is singing this aria. Diomedes' wife Aegiale seems an unlikely candidate as she is remembered as a very unfaithful wife. Mary's singing was more evocative of Helen and Menelaus.




Mary O'Shea sings soprano



In an instant Mary transformed into the love-struck teenager Cherubino in Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro", who has a rather embarrassing crush on the Countess Rosina Almaviva. "Voi che sapete che cosa e amor" - "You (women) who know what love is . . . " Is that what I have in my heart? As Mozart intended, the thoughts of a young boy expressed by the mature soprano voice of a woman is a quite extraordinary combination.

Mary ended the first set with one of the most tragic arias in opera, "When I am laid in earth", Dido's lament in Henry Purcell's "Dido & Aeneas". In just four songs, soprano and pianist masterfully spanned the eighteenth century and a huge emotional range.

For the second set Mary and Frances focussed on romantic songs starting in 1840 and moving backwards in time - Schumann's "Nüssbaum" (nut tree) and Schubert's "Ständchen" (serenade) leading to Giordani's "Caro mio ben" (My dear beloved).

Mary's high range and sensitivity came to the fore in the final four delicate songs: Fauré's "Pie Jesu" (Dear Jesus, give them rest) from the D minor Requeim, Schubert's "Ave Maria", Grieg's "A Swan" from his six songs by Henrik Ibsen and finally Elizabeth Maconchy's 1920's composition "Ophelia's Song" based on the lament of Hamlet's wife in the eponymous play by Shakespeare. (The song was only published in Elizabeth's later life, towards the end of the twentieth century.)

The  combination of Mary's gentle voice and Frances' deft accompaniment wove a spell of romance and tragedy on the spring air which delighted the ear. Frances, who was unable to perform herself a couple of weeks ago owing to a back injury, lovingly augmented each song with precise and sensitive playing on the Venables grand piano.

Fo those who wish to find out more about Mary's singing, to hear some of her recordings - or to find out about future concerts - Mary now has a website:

Poetry of the War Years: 1914-1918 Remembered Barbara Farquharson Branscombe Village Hall Wednesday 16 April 2014

One Century On
The Great War is remembered

Branscombe Village Hall
7.30pm Wednesday 16 April 2014


David Birch


On Wednesday, pianist Frances Waters made her way almost immediately from a lunchtime concert accompanying soprano Mary O'Shea to an evening of First World War reminiscences at Branscombe Village Hall.

Barbara Farquharson has organised an exhibition in the hall inspired by the effect of the war on rural communities. As a grand finale Barbara and five other poets gave a recital of poetry and writings from the time, while surrounded by exhibits.

There was music too. For John Torrence's recital of "War Cemetery at Ligny St Flochel", the sound of Claude Debussy's "Syrinx" came eerily from another part of the building - played by Chris Gradwell on alto saxophone.


Rowland Molony


Each part of the recital, which was in two halves, closed with two songs performed by soprano Val Howels, accompanied gallantly by Frances Waters on what must be one of the worst pianos in Devon. Frances was unfazed by Les Dawson style discords coming from the untuned strings, and Val sang on in perfect pitch regardless. Even the disheartening clunks that took the place of poignantly drawn out final chords could not detract from the trademark musicianship of this pair.

David Birch began the evening with "Channel Firing" by Thomas Hardy. Hardy's poem describes a precursor to war, the practice firing of ships' batteries at sea. Sitting in Branscombe Hall looking out to sea, where the MSC Napoli (formerly CGM Normandie) was stranded seven years ago, it was easy to concur with Hardy's premonitions of impending disaster.

Madeleine Birch


On a lighter note David recited Henry Reed's "Judging Distances". The military imperative to report observations without interpretation is countered by an unwilling volunteer (Rowland Molony) describing the romantic scene of two lovers.

David completed the preamble to war with Wilfred Owen's "The Send-Off". Anonymous couples rudely separated in preparation for conflict.

Madeleine Birch recreated the idyllic unreality of newly waged war in the balmy August of 1914 in Philip Larkin's "MXMXIV" and Vera Brittain's recollection of the pointless excitement of a tennis game inDerbishire which is put in perspective by the appearance of her uniformed brother in "Testament of Youth".

Robert Crick

Madeleine closed with nature's indifference to man's battles in Sarah Teasdale's "Soft Rain".

Robert Crick changed the mood completely with formal army records and journal entries from 1914 made by Robert's grandfather Captain A. G. Lind, who was invalided out in 1915 and survived to reach the rank of Colonel, and to live out his life in Budleigh Salterton.

The personal connection, in conjunction with Robert's ponderous and ominous tone, brought the details terrifyingly to life, and drew the soldiers' experiences close through his attention to detail.

Val Howels

Val Howels sang words from Shakespeare's "Cymbeline" - "Fear no more the heat of the Sun". This dialogue between Guiderius and Arviragus offers words of comfort in the loss of loved ones. Their suffering is done.

Her second song was by a contemporary of Thomas Hardy who lived in Bournemouth. Meta Orred's "In the Gloaming", set to music by Annie Fortesque Harrison, was an uplifting love song with gentle overtones of exquisite tragedy. What a beautiful end to the first half of the concert.

(Frances' one really duff note - purely the fault of the piano - came right at the end, an incongruous but fitting coda.)

Rowland Molony
& John Torrance
During the interval everyone was liberally plied with wine, fruit juice and tapas. (Well done Barbara!) Once everyone was comfortably refreshed, Rowland Molony introduced two compositions, one by himself and one by John Torrence. "At Long Wood, Longueval" recounts Rowland's thoughts while breaking his journey at the historic battle site, while "War Cemetry at Ligny St Flochel" is John's moving description of that sad memorial square. The haunting sound of Chris Gradwell's alto clarinet in the background was the perfect complement to their words.

John Torrance


John continued with two more poems. W. B. Yeats was Irish, and fifty when war broke out, so the carnage in Europe was not his direct concern. However, he was moved by the death of his friend Robert Gregory from Galway, to write a very cutting verse called "An Irishman Foresees his Death".

David Birch &
John Torrance

David Birch joined John for "Billet" by Ivor Gurney, who was directly involved in the war on the Western Front and suffered severe mental health problems as a result.

David provided the voices of Ivor's fellow Gloucestershireman, a private soldier who wished fervently that he was still working at the Brewery in Stroud. Ivor agreed.


Barbara Farquharson
Rowland, in his deceptively soft voice, delivered two polemics on the reality of war. "Exposure" by Wilfrid Owen unflinchingly describes the predicament of men in the front line. Isaac Rosenberg's "Break of Day in the Trenches" recounts his encounter with a neutral, non-partisan rat which survives, ignoring the artificial boundaries set up by the two opposing armies.
Finally Barbara Farquharson herself stood forward to speak. She recalled the wartime friendship between the poet Charlotte Mew and Edith Chick in Branscombe. Edith continued to receive Charlotte's drafts for many years after the war. "May 1915" was a recollection of the stubborn hope that survived in the depths of apparently endless war.

Rowland Molony &
Barbara Farquharson
Rowland Molony joined Barbara for a poem by Edward Thomas, a former nature writer who was encouraged by the American poet Robert Frost to turn his hand to poetry. In just a few months, while on active service, Thomas wrote more than 140 poems before he was killed by an exploding shell. "As The Team's Head Brass Flashed Out on the Turn" describes a ploughman's disjointed dialogue with a woodpecker in a fallen elm tree. (Rowland is the woodpecker.) A rational analysis of the survival prospects of the young volunteers, and the cost to the farming community of their sudden departure and poor prospects of coming back alive.
Frances Waters

Barbara ended the evening's readings with a surprise contribution, which had been received during the week of the exhibition. Barbara reminded us that she and John have written a book called "The Shooting at Branscombe Pits" about the trial of William Dean Dowell for murder in the late nineteenth century. (Dowell was acquitted.) Subsequently, Dowell married and had a son. His son did not survive the war. Dowell wrote to the Second-Lieutenant of his son's regiment ten year's later, imploring him to give a full account of his son's fate. A copy of the letter was provided for the exhibition and poetry evening. The writing betrays Dowell's poor education and simple faith in the goodness of a British officer.


Val Howels & Frances Waters
Val Howels and Frances waters hammered home the sentiments of William Dean Dowell's unassuming hopes with a modern composition by Michael Nyman. "If" describes the plaintive wish to stop all harm - if one only could.

Finally, to the accompaniment of a piano which sounded as if it had only just survived the war (but ably coaxed into life by Frances), Val drew a final tear from the already deeply moved audience with an old soldiers' favourite composed just before the war began.
"Tis ye must go, and I must bide - O Danny Boy, I love you so!"

Ruth Molins very kindly took advantage of the Easter school holidays to come to the Phonic FM studio at Exeter Phoenix for a very special edition of "Classical Journey". Her discussion and playing were recorded, as always, but this time the recording will be made available over the internet so that people can 'listen again'.

Ruth discussed her various flute-related activities, here in Exeter and further afield. We heard recordings of her recent concert at Cullompton, and from last year's "One Flute Many Voices" at Lympstone. Ruth also played music live in the studio - on both her regular C-flute and the mighty alto flute. The show finished with an archive recording of Ruth and her old chum, former Exonian, James Keefe, who is now retained by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra as keyboard player and recently joined them on a tour or Europe.

Ruth, and her pals Sophie Brewer and Jen Campbell, will be in action again soon as "Flute Cake" performing "Flute Fancies" at Exmouth Festival on Wednesday 28th May (and possibly again in Sidmouth on the 29th). Ruth will also be joining David Cottam's "Eloquent Guitar" on Sunday 1st June. For full details of all Ruth's forthcoming concerts, find the website: ruthmolins.com.

Ruth's inaugural recorded radio programme is available to hear on 'Mixcloud'.
