‘We’re delighted to be bringing our Principal Conductor, Esa-Pekka Salonen to Cambridge for the first time. His take on core Classical repertoire is influenced by both European and American heritage as well as his own work as a composer. This concert therefore promises fresh and exciting accounts of Beethoven’s Namensfeir Overture and his Second Symphony. It is also a great pleasure to give an opportunity for the audience to hear the unrivalled playing of our Principal Horn, Katy Woolley, as soloist in Mozart’s best known horn concerto.’
Jonathan Mayes, Director Residencies and Regional Concerts.
Pre-Concert talk: 6pm at The Cambridge Union, free to concert ticket holders.
