NEXT CONCERT: 6:00pm Sunday 26th November 2017, St. Peter’s Church, Sudbury

** Soloist: Thomas Isaac **

Dvorak: Cello Concerto in B minor
Beethoven: Symphony no. 1

......and more.....


Sudbury Symphony Orchestra is delighted to announce that their next concert will be on Sunday 26th November at 6 pm when we will be featuring Antonin Dvorak's Cello Concerto in B minor with soloist Thomas Isaac.  Thomas played the Haydn Cello Concerto with us in our November 2016 and it was such a wonderful concert that we had to ask him back.  Dvorak's cello concerto is revered as one of the finest works in the orchestral repertoire and the standard by which all subsequent cello concertos are measured.  Which is interesting given that Dvorak said of it “I have … written a cello-concerto, but am sorry to this day I did so, and I never intend to write another.  The cello is a beautiful instrument, but its place is in the orchestra and in chamber music. As a solo instrument it isn’t much good.”  So - come to the concert and judge for yourself.

Thomas Isaac is an exciting young talent at the beginning of his professional career, those who heard him last year will be delighted he is back with us.  A masters student at the Royal Academy who has performed at the Wigmore Hall he also performs with many leading orchestras as Principal Orchestral cellist both in the UK and Europe.

We will also be performing Beethoven's Symphony no 1, this might be Beethoven's first symphony but he was 30 years old when he wrote it and it is a mature first foray into this form with hints of the revolution to come in his later symphonies.  

All in all a very enjoyable way to spend a November evening.

Tickets are just £12 for adults (including complimentary concert programme) and £2 for children aged 16 and under. Tickets will be available from the end of October onwards from Compact Music, North Street, Sudbury and Sudbury Tourist Information (library).

We hope you will join us for this evening of really wonderful music.
