A MAGICAL MEMENTO OF A SPECIAL EVENT
THE THRUPIECE PHILHARMONIC HALL INAUGURAL CONCERT
The opening of the new state-of-the-art, made-for-purpose Thrupiece Philharmonic Hall was a momentous event in the life of the Thrupiece Philharmonic Orchestra and its charismatic Chief Conductor and Artistic Director Irina Legova. No longer the peripatetic band with no home worth its name which it used once to be, the Philharmonic has at last found an acoustic in which to demonstrate its year-on-year improvement and establish itself as agem in the pantheon of great Dorset cultural institutions.
Opened in April 2018 ahead of schedule, the Hall's first concert was, fittingly, that great hymn of praise Hedwig van Bonepiece's Symphony No 9, the so-called "Ode to Roy". IT was captured in both hi-definition and true digital sound making this download a treasurable reminder of a never-to-be-repeated event.

AN EXCITING RARITY
Winner of the [delayed] 2019 Loloworth International Piano Competiition Golden Spike Award, piano virtuoso Rabin Huperetic plays selections from the solo piano works of Professor Brian Thrupiece, including several world premiere recordings. Though Professor Thrupiece wrote the majority of his solo piano pieces early in his compositional career, two - Grand Walz in A flat [Op894] and the Polonaise in A condominium [Op 926] - are mature works exhibiting the highest technical mastery and demanding an uncompromising technique. As The Dorset Pianist Magazine [Spetember 2022] noted; "Two of the more mature works - recorded for the first time here - the Grand Walz in A flat [Op894] and the Polonaise in A condominium [Op 926] - are mature works exhibiting the highest technical mastery and demanding an uncompromising technique".
Born near the Baikonur Cosmodrome in 1991, Irina attended the St Petersburg Musical Academy where she studied conducting under Maestro Maxim Wankovich. Graduating in 2012, she served as Assistant conductor of the Volgograd Radio Symphony Orchestra before deputising for an ailing Anton Decke who hailed her as "the next best thing since the last best thing". Fearing for his position, he urged her to gain experience in the West. Internationally renowned, she has conducted the Corfe Mullen Chamber Orchestra, the Fifehead Neville Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra and has guest conducted the East Creech SIngers. She has appeared for two years in succession at The Threadbone Primavera Festival. She first appeared with the Thrupiece Philharmonic Orchestra in 2016, conducting, in her second concert, the UK premiere of Andrei Brianovich Kondrashin's Symphony No 4 "The Space Race" at the Threadbone Maggio Musicale Festival. In July she leads the Orchestra on a West Country Wide tour in concerts featuring the film music of her distingished predecessor Addinsell Threadbone.

THE THRUPIECE PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
Founded in 1982, with a significant endowment from the late Professor Brian Thrupiece, the Thrupiece Philharmonic Orchestra is recognised throughout the West Country as one of the leading Dorset orchestras. Under the direction of well-known conductor and composer Addinsell Threadbone, the Orchestra gained a reputation for championing the music of West Country composers as well as setting new standards in the more conventional regional repertoire. Without a home to do full justice to its sonic majesty, the Orchestra has led a peripatetic life, appearing in halls and arenas across the Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and East Anglian regions. In 2018, however it will move into a new permanent home - the state-of-the-art Thrupiece Philharmonic Hall in the new Arts Complex at Great Heaving, Dorset.
From 2017, the Orchestra will be led by the dynamic and exciting Russian maestro Irina Legova whose specialist knowledge and championship of contemporary Russian composers will take the orchestra in new and welcome directions. They have already recorded several CDs together in an exciting partnership which Clary Nett, Music Critic of the Minterne Magna Sentinel, described as "a near meeting of minds and an instinctive rapport so precise that they almost finished together". They appear for the first time on-line through The Thrupiece Philharmonic Digital Concert Hall
