The Cambridge Classical Concert Series steams ahead this month with another top-flight performance at the Corn Exchange, taking place on the 3rd.
This month’s treat for music lovers is a visit from the acclaimed Zurich Chamber Orchestra, who’ll be performing a programme which includes works from Mozart, Hummel and Shostakovich.
Among the performers is acclaimed trumpet player Alison Balsom, who’ll be bringing out the energy and playfulness of Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto, one of the most popular pieces of music ever written for the instrument.
She’s joined by Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero (right), recent winner of a Latin Grammy, who’s promising to delight with her recital of Mozart’s beautifully understated and intimate Piano Concerto No.14 K 449. The evening ends with Montero and Balsom teaming up for a dazzling interpretation of Shostakovich’s joyous Concerto for Piano, Strings and Trumpet.
Tickets start at £17.
