Mosaic Music Festival’s God Save the King: A Tribute to King Charles III and Queen Camilla

In honour of the coronation of HM King Charles III, Mosaic Music Festival has published a variation on, God Save the King, the United Kingdom’s national anthem, performed by concert pianist Edna Stern. For those who care deeply about music, The Festival has also issued a brief but all-encompassing call to arms in its Music Manifesto.

Both the variation of God Save the King and the Mosaic Music Manifesto have been presented to King Charles, in recognition of his love of classical music and his belief in how listening to music transforms lives.
Festival Founder Tatiana Svetlova, who composed the variation on the anthem, said: “The coronation is such a historic moment, and one that will be etched in peoples’ memories for decades to come. At this special moment, we wanted to play our part in sending him our best wishes for a long and enjoyable reign – and what better way of doing that than through music?”
The variation has been recorded in Paris and will be performed during the Mosaic Music Festival in Autumn this year. “The original music to God save the King is attributed to John Bull dating back to 1619. I placed the theme within my own Fantasia and both ideas play musical chairs, stopping and running independently with each idea. My  wish for the King is for a peaceful and fulfilling reign, so I wanted the music to reflect that,” said Ms Svetlova.
The Festival’s music manifesto has been published simultaneously and acts as a rallying call to all music lovers.
Ms Svetlova added: “As Plato said, music and the arts are the keys to learning. Anyone who cares about standards in education needs to be part of our mission to allow all children and young people to experience the thrill of classical music. It’s not just about the music; it’s about how music helps young people learn across all subject areas. We need to engage youngsters from an early age, and we want to lobby hard to get politicians and others recognise the power of music in empowering future generations.”
Festival organisers are also in talks with music venues in Monaco and the Cote D’Azure on finding new and innovative ways of attracting younger audiences to the classical music scene. As part of this, Ms Svetlova and Ms Stern have collaborated on a new 35-40 minute show for children based on Schumann’s Carnaval that will be performed as part of Mosaic’s offering.  Children’s brains are like sponges. The earlier they hear great music, the better. Our version of the Carnaval is full of fun and adventure and we hope it will give children an appetite for wanting to see and hear more.
