A bright new voice in Durham’s musical as Orchestra Cipriani, a new chamber orchestra conducted by Lewis Wilkinson gave a well-polished and very enjoyable concert of works by Mendelssoh, Beethoven, Malcolm Arnold and Steve Robson.
Durham has a new orchestra! I’ve been finding out more about Orchestra Cipriani, and the music that they’re playing for their debut concert.
Durham University Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Harry Castle, with violinist Sergei Batishchev, bring searing emotional intensity to Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky.
It seems that all the musicians in Durham are coming out to play this weekend – I have five concerts listed on here, ranging from solo organ to full symphony orchestra, and performers from amateur to international super-star.
