The recently honoured Royal Northern Sinfonia is making its debut appearance at Cambridge’s Corn Exchange on January 23, the next stop in its 2014/15 classical series.
Since having its new title bestowed on it by the Queen in June 2013, the leading UK ensemble has continued to build on its already formidable international reputation.
The musicians regularly appear at venues around the world including at London’s Royal Albert Hall, where they performed at the BBC Proms.
Now the sinfonia is set to bring its world class sound to the Eastern region.
The evening opens with Barber’s hauntingly beautiful Adagio for Strings, and Kyra Humphries directs while playing Mozart’s elegant Violin Concerto No. 4.
Award-winning cellist Natalie Clein takes centre stage for Saint-Saens’ majestic and lyrical Cello Concerto No. 1, and the evening concludes with Mozart’s spirited Symphony No. 29.
There is also a pre-concert talk at the Cambridge City Hotel at 6pm, free of charge to ticket holders, in which local music expert James Day gives an insight into the repertoire.
Full price tickets start at £28.50, student and concessions £12.50. Visit cornex.co.uk/classical.
