This string ensemble programme will be our first orchestral concert after an absence of almost two years. Join us for what promises to be an exhilarating evening with guest soloist / director, Timothy Ridout, the British violist and current BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist.
Timothy is an exceptional talent and, not surprisingly, is in high demand as both a soloist and chamber musician. For this tour, he has devised a varied programme that truly showcases the viola, featuring great music by Telemann, Mozart and Schubert and a concerto by JS Bach. This player-led programme is sure to be an exhilarating evening – perfect for a return to concert-going.
You may have seen Timothy in his last performances with Sinfonia Cymru, in 2018, when he played Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante alongside Benjamin Baker for the orchestra’s debut BBC Radio 3 broadcast. Audiences were in awe of the wonderful musicality and virtuosity of the duo and orchestra and this concert promises to repeat that experience.
