ACCOMPLISHED Bromsgrove pianist and clarinetist Alastair Moseley will perform a concert in his home town.
The event, at 7.30pm next Saturday (November 29) at Artrix, will feature Mozart’s Overture to The Marriage of Figaro and ‘Mozartiana’ by Tchaikovsky, along with ‘Sleepy Lagoon’ by Eric Coates.
He will also play Beethoven’s third Piano Concerto – his first performance of this concerto with The Redditch Orchestra since 1984.
Alastair works with many local orchestras both as a solo pianist and clarinettist and manages to combine his love of music with his ‘day job’ as a water and environmental civil engineer.
He is also the driving force behind the recently-established Orchestra of St John in which he is the Principal Clarinet. Alastair this year also celebrates 25 years’ service as the Principal Clarinet of the renowned Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra with whom he has also performed many piano and clarinet concertos in the past.
The Redditch Orchestra is led by Cofton Hackett violinist, Graham Longfils and will be directed for this concert by guest conductor Neil Aston, who is also the Resident Conductor of the Worcester Philharmonic Orchestra and the Berridge Singers.
The Redditch Orchestra was established in 1948 to provide opportunities for local musicians to perform the great symphonies and other works from the classical repertoire.
It has given many young musicians their first experience of playing in a symphony orchestra and is an important part of the Bromsgrove and Redditch music scene.
