Thames Concerts Series 2017/18 - Moore and Stephenson (trumpet, organ)

Saturday, January 13, 2018 - 19:30

This is the fourth evening concert in this season's Thames Concerts Series 2017/18.

Darren Moore (trumpet) and Jeremiah Stephenson (organ) began playing together whilst studying at the Royal Academy of Music. They gave their first performance of Petr Eben’s Okna at St John's Smith Square. Since then they have added a wide selection of music spanning over four hundred years. As well as early music they are enthusiastic about creating new works for the duo and so were delighted to perform a new work by the award winning composer David Loxley-Blount, Inflemus. Darren and Jeremiah also enjoy improvising as a duo, something that allows them to push each other musically and to learn from one another in a creative process.

One of their first recitals together was for Darren's Masters of Music final recital in 2014, earning him a Dip.RAM for high quality of performance and artistic programming. Since then they have performed in prestigious venues including Hampton Court Palace Chapel, All Saints’ Church in Marlow, and at St Lawrence Jewry where the premier of Inflemus took place.

Much of the repertoire they have explored together has been unsurprisingly influenced by religious works of art including that of Marc Chagall. They find that the combination of instruments has such a wide range of sounds available to them that every recital can incorporate many genres and timbres including a number of different types of trumpets and the awesome range of dynamics and characters of the organ. Future projects will include more experimentation with electronics and improvisation.

Each of them enjoy considerable success as soloists.
