Mozart- Symphony no 13 in F, K112
Haydn- Cello Concerto in C Major
Nick Stringfellow, cello
Mendelssohn- Songs Without Words
Haydn- Symphony no. 45, “Farewell”
I’m very excited to be making my first appearance with the wonderful ensemble Orchestra of the Swan this week at their exciting new summer festival, the Shakespeare Summer Proms. Orchestra of the Swan are fast becoming recognized as one of the more exciting and innovative orchestras in the UK, and have been featured on a number of TV shows within the last year. They have an exceptionally strong record for commissioning new works, and their Spring Sounds Festival is now one of the hottest tickets in the region.
I’m so excited to be conducting music so close to my heart. I love all Haydn, but as a cellist, the two concertos are pieces I’ve loved and lived with for many, many years. They’re a joy to play, but I’m happy this time to leave the cello duties to the orchestra’s principal cellist, the up and coming virtuoso Nick Stringfellow.And the Farewell? Well, we’ve all had our experiences with it, but I’ve found and learned so much working on it this time that we’ll need a separate blog post. For now, let me just tell you that you don’t want to miss it…
Should be a great show, do join us.
