LMP Celebrates Fairfield Halls 50th Birthday
2 November 2012

Fairfield Halls, Croydon celebrates its rich fifty-year history and its status as an internationally renowned venue at the forefront of the Borough’s cultural activity with a concert by the LMP on Fri 2 Nov 2012
PANUFNIK Fairfield Fanfare (World Premiere)
COLERIDGE TAYLOR Petite Suite de Concert
BRUCH Violin Concerto No. 1
ARNOLD Fairfield Overture
PARRY Blest Pair of Sirens
WALTON Coronation Te Deum

Hilary Davan Wetton Conductor
Chloë Hanslip Violin

The London Mozart Players lead the 50th celebrations under the excellent musicianship of its Associate Conductor Hilary Davan Wetton. 2 November 2012 marks exactly 50 years to the day since the first ever concert played at Fairfield, featuring Yehudi Menuhin, conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargeant, and attended by HM The Queen Mother who opened the building. Included are works by early 20th century Croydon composer dubbed ‘The African Mahler’ – Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Malcolm Arnold’s Fairfield Overture, music by Walton and Parry, and a new fanfare by LMP’s Associate Composer Roxanna Panufnik. Stepping into the shoes of Menuhin after exactly fifty years is the supernaturally talented Surrey-born violinist Chloë Hanslip, whom Menuhin discovered aged five, subsequently offering her a place at his school. She performs the Bruch violin concerto.
