Get ready for a dose of Beethoven and Mozart
The world-renowned Philharmonia Orchestra brings Beethoven and Mozart to Cambridge this month in a performance at the Corn Exchange on 24 June. The concert features Katy Woolley, one of the most exciting young horn players in Europe, and will be followed by a talk at the Cambridge Union, which is free to ticket holders.
“We’re delighted to be bringing Esa-Pekka Salonen, our principal conductor, to Cambridge for the first time,” says Jonathan Mayes, Director of Residencies and Regional Concerts. “His take on the 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 Zur Namensfeier 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.” The programme for the evening comprises Beethovens Overture, Namensfeier; Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 4; and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2.
Tickets start at £32.
