The final concert of the Northern Chamber Orchestra’s season is to be a special one.
British violinist Anthony Marwood is one of the most distinguished of his generation. Equally at home playing the great concertos, chamber music and pioneering new works, and his interpretation of Beethoven’s Olympian Violin Concerto in the second half is eagerly awaited.
The first half features Haydn’s D major symphony, the ninth of his twelve London symphonies. It has a large-scale grandeur alongside sophisticated wit and broad humour together with his inexhaustible inventiveness. The concert begins with a new piece specially composed by the Northern Chamber Orchestra’s principal double bass player and resident composer, James Manson.
