TWO GREAT classical works will be performed at Bromsgrove’s historic St John’s Church at 7.30pm on November 28.
The event, which will signal the start of The Orchestra of St John’s 2015/16 season, will feature two great works – Sibelius’ Violin Concerto and Mahler’s 4th Symphony.
The soloist is Bromsgrove’s very own violinist, Charlotte Moseley and the conductor is Richard Jenkinson. Claire Prewer will also be joining us again to take soprano solo in the Symphony.
The Violin Concerto by Sibelius not only demands extreme virtuosity but much physical stamina as the whole compass of the violin is engaged and explored. Soloist, Charlotte Moseley is well known to Bromsgrove music lovers and received wide acclaim for her recent performance of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto last year. She returns from her post graduate studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London to play this virtuosic and symphonic work in her home town and in the Church where she learned her craft as a solo performer.
Gustav Mahler’s wondrous Symphony no 4 is the shortest of his symphonies, and is at once accessible with its sleigh-bell opening, yet deeply affecting. Tickets, at £10, are available online at www.artrix.co.uk or by calling into the School Drive venue in person.
Tickets can also be purchased on the door for £12. Accompanied children are free to attend.
