    St Lawrence's Church Edgware HA8 6QS

    Savitri Grier (violin) and Indira Grier (cello) return to St Lawrence’s to give another concert of masterpieces for the violin and cello. The church building retains its eighteenth century interior where Handel’s Chandos Anthems were first performed and it makes an ideal setting for chamber recitals.

    What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon in the baroque splendour of our parish church listening to wonderful music performed by these vituosi. And there are cakes afterwards!

    Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No 1 / Bruckner's Symphony No 3
    John Gibbons, Laura van der Heijden, Worthing Symphony Orchestra
    Assembly Hall Worthing BN11 1HQ
    United Kingdom

    Laura van der Heijden, BBC Young Musician of the Year 2012, returns with Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto, a powerful work of great intensity and passion.

    Glinka’s famous overture opens the concert in scintillating fashion while the true majesty of a symphony orchestra can be enjoyed in one of Bruckner’s most popular symphonies. This music is a blend of lyrical melodies, rich orchestral sonorities and deeply-felt spirituality.

    John Gibbons is a passionate advocate of the music of Bruckner and his new recording of Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony with the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra is released at the end of 2014 on the Danacord label.

    Concerto for Cello and Orchestra No 1 in E flat
    Dmitry Shostakovich (1906-1975)

    Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra and Natalia Lomeiko (violin)
    Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra, Natalia Lomeiko, William Goodchild
    St George's Bristol Bristol BS1 5RR
    United Kingdom

    Renowned Russian violinist Natalia Lomeiko performs Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No 1, composed in 1917, the year of the Revolution and premièred some seven years later in Paris. At times serene, at others fiery, it proved an immediate success. These contrasting emotions are reflected equally in Borodin’s two works: the Polovtsian Dances progress from the softly lyrical to frenzied energy and back again; In the Steppes of Central Asia depicts a desert caravan quietly travelling across deserted grassland. Tchaikovsky’s fourth symphony exposes the turmoil within the composer’s troubled soul in this all-Russian programme.

    There will be a pre-concert talk about the works being performed given by Jonathan James in the Auditorium from 6:30-7pm. Entry is free to ticket-holders. More information at: bristolmetropolitanorchestra.blogspot.co.uk

    In the Steppes of Central Asia
    Alexander Borodin (1833-1887)
    Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor

    Sergey Prokofiev (1891-1953)
    Symphony No 4 in F minor
    Pyotr Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)

    Death and the Maiden - St George's Chamber Orchestra String Quartet
    Anna Beryl, Dominic Moore, Lucy Curnow, Peter Graham, St George's Chamber Orchestra String Quartet
    St George's Parish Church Beckenham BR3 1AX
    United Kingdom

    After a recent sellout concert at nearby Dulwich Picture Gallery the St George's Chamber Orchestra String Quartet returns to Beckenham with a sublime programme including Schubert’s masterpiece ‘Death and the Maiden’. Watch a preview of the Schubert on our website. The quartet originated from one formed for a concert tour to Crete in September 2013, now an annual event in the calendar. All the members of the quartet are members of the St George’s Chamber Orchestra.

    St George’s Chamber Orchestra was founded in 2004 as the professional orchestra for the South East in order to give local music lovers the opportunity to hear orchestral concerts of the highest standard on their own doorstep, and indeed for the musicians to enjoy making music together on their own doorstep!

    The orchestra is drawn from an extraordinarily talented, experienced and versatile pool of musicians, a large number of whom are past winners of prestigious awards and musical competitions in the UK and elsewhere. Many either are or have been members of the leading London orchestras and a significant number are principals in those orchestras. Many others are members of Britain’s best known chamber ensembles.

    We are proud to be resident at St George’s Church, Beckenham which has a long, strong and respected musical heritage, and boasts one of the finest church choirs in the UK. With its spaciousness, good acoustics and warm friendly atmosphere the church is an ideal venue for a chamber orchestra.

    A few comments from our audience:

    ' St George's Chamber Orchestra is pure gold.'

    ‘St George's Chamber Orchestra has got to be one of the best things about being a Beckenham local. At the end of each concert I’m already looking forward to the next one.’

    'Your programmes are always imaginitive and the playing first class.'

    'I enjoy these concerts enormously and we are most fortunate to have you in Beckenham.'

    'Music wonderful and surroundings perfect! Thank you.'

    'I have really enjoyed the concerts over these last years. So good and so convenient for me. Long may you continue!'

    'I just wish we could have a concert every week!'

    'I greatly value the opportunity and experience you provide of "going round the corner" and hearing professionals at work. Thank you so very much.'

    'Last night's concert was one of the best I have ever been to. Simply sublime.'
