200209 Ad Hoc Strings

Ad Hoc Strings

Steve Bingham, conductor – Jill Morton, piano – Paul Mayes, trumpet

Sunday 9th February

7:30 pm

For his new “Ad Hoc” project, Steve Bingham has invited two outstanding soloists. Pianist Jill Morton is a highly successful chamber musician and soloist who has performed throughout Britain and across Europe. Virtuoso trumpeter Paul Mayes is one of Britain’s most exciting and versatile players.

The programme presents an exquisite selection music for chamber orchestra: Rudolf Barshai’s arrangement of Shostakovich’s Eighth String Quartet for string orchestra, and Shostakovich’s spectacular and highly entertaining concerto for piano and trumpet. Tchaikovsky’s Serenade op. 48, with its classical proportions and unclassical zest, summarises an evening that showcases the wide range of colours of the stringed chamber orchestra.

Dmitri Shostakovich, Chamber Symphony op. 110a
Dmitri Shostakovich, Concerto for Piano and Trumpet, op. 35
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Serenade for Strings, op. 48
