Benjamin Powell - piano
Northern Chamber Orchestra


MOZART Divertimento in F major, K. 138
SHOSTAKOVICH Concerto No. 1 for Piano, Trumpet and String Orchestra, Op. 35
HANDEL arr. MANSON Violin Sonata in D
MOZART Divertimento in D major, K. 251

Pianist Benjamin Powell joins us in Manchester for an afternoon bookended with Mozart divertimentos. He plays Shostakovich’s first piano concerto, written in 1933, which sees the trumpet in frequent dialogue with the piano.

Preceding the Shostakovich is Tchaikovsky’s Elegy, and we also hear the NCO’s composer in residence and double bass player James Manson’s take on Handel’s Violin sonata in D.

Please note that this concert originally featured violinist Chloë Hanslip as soloist.
