Concert previews – Winter 2015

The listings are gradually coming in for the next few months, and based on what I have so far, this winter’s concerts are dominated by early music treats courtesy of Musicon and a particularly rich choice of organ recitals at Ushaw College, Hatfied College and Durham Cathedral. Durham’s local musicians have lots going on too, with music spanning 500 years from John Sheppard to John Dankworth and so far the students have told me about Mozart and Bach.

ETO – King Priam

English Touring Opera bring their award winning production of Tippett’s King Priam to the Gala next week. Read my preview and watch ETO’s trailer here – then book your ticket, because this looks like something not to be missed.
