Orchestra North East Presents:
March 29 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Welcoming back conductor Michael Bawtree, the Orchestra presents a concert of music by three outstanding Russian composers from the twentieth century. The programme opens with excerpts from Prokofiev’s stunning ballet, Romeo and Juliet, and we are pleased to have Christopher Murray as our soloist in the exciting First Cello Concerto of Shostakovich. Christopher is a member of the award winning Heath Quartet as well as a being a professor at London’s Guildhall. The programme concludes with Rachmaninov’s dramatic Symphonic Dances, perhaps the nearest he came to writing for the ballet.
