Hastings welcomes its own new orchestra

For those lovers of the International Composers Festival, who regret not having their usual opportunity of hearing recently composed classical tonal music here in Hastings, there is – this year at least – an exciting new development for romantic music, namely the first official concert of the Hastings Sinfonia. And the concert will include many much loved soloists from earlier Composers’ Festivals for us to enjoy, once again under the expert lead of conductor Derek Carden. HOT’s Chris Cormack writes.

As we came out of our third concert in two days of the second International Composers Festival, someone said “In the end, I’d prefer to hear some Beethoven”, thus showing he had entirely missed the point of this wonderful event.  Beethoven can be heard in bucketfuls on the radio and in concert halls.  We had had the unique opportunity to hear works recently created by some prodigiously talented composers, and performed by equally talented musicians, writes Antony Mair.

Last Tango in Hastings : Part One

Hastings tango dancers are becoming a common sight, whether it is along the De la Warr terraces or filling up Hastings Museum at night. There are classes on Sundays and Tuesdays and all sorts of other opportunities. Hastings Tango Club are further honoured by having music specially dedicated to them by Hastings own renowned composer, Polo Piatti, to be played as a World premier at the Hastings Museum Valentine Tango event this Friday 15 February, writes HOT’s Chris Cormack.
