‘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 Namensfeier Overture and his Second Symphony. It is also a great pleasure to give an opportunity for the audience to hear the unrivalled playing of Katy Woolley as soloist in Mozart’s best known horn concerto.’
Jonathan Mayes, Director: UK Programme and Creative Projects.
Post-Concert talk: 10pm at The Cambridge Union, free to concert ticket holders.
