So, this is what I have been working towards for more than a year......
I'm the soloist in York Bowen's Viola Concerto, in a little under 2 months. Please come!
~~~oOo~~~26 June 2016,
7.30pm, The Great Hall, Reading University, London Road, Reading
York Bowen Viola Concerto
Saint-Saëns Symphony No. 3 "Organ"
West Forest Sinfonia
Philip Ellis - Conductor
Tommo - Viola
Full price £15
Concessions (60+ and retired) £14
Under 18s and students £2.50
Preparations are just about on course... I'm maybe a little behind where I want to be, but OK. Everything is pretty much under the fingers (except the crazy cadenza, which is near all the same!), and all but a few bits are learnt from memory.
Next step is arranging play throughs with a pianist.
Wish me luck!
