Howard Shelley's Concert Masterpieces

The evening with Grayshott Concert's Associate Artist, Howard Shelley and the London Mozart Players promises a musical adventure like no other.

The enchanting program begins with Mozart's Magic Flute Overture, a sparkling gem that sets the stage for a night of whimsy and delight. Mozart's ingenious composition is a musical journey through a fantastical world, brimming with lively melodies and mysterious undertones.

Grieg's iconic Piano Concerto will sweep you off your feet as the virtuosic Howard Shelley takes centre stage, both playing and conducting. Grieg's concerto is a romantic tour de force, filled with rich harmonies and folk-inspired melodies that evoke the rugged beauty of Norway. Those of a certain age may have a wry smile remembering Andre Previn and Eric Morecambe's rendition of this work!

The evening's grand finale is Dvorak's evocative Symphony No. 8. This symphonic masterpiece reflects the joy of life and the beauty of the natural world. Dvorak's use of Bohemian folk elements and vivid orchestration will leave you with a sense of elation and wonder.

Viola Virtuosity with Tim Ridout and Ruth Rogers

We proudly present an exciting evening featuring two masterpieces and a musical revelation

The concert will begin with the timeless elegance of Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante, a work celebrated for its breath-taking interplay between violin and viola. LMP's lead, Ruth Rogers, and Timothy Ridout, a BBC New Generation Artist, will guide you through the intricate beauty of Mozart's composition.

Next, we delve into the modern brilliance of Lera Auerbach's Sogno di Stabat Mater. This contemporary work offers a mesmerising exploration of sound and emotion, pushing the boundaries of classical composition.

We step into the second half of the evening with the Hummel Potpourri for viola and orchestra before Beethoven's Symphony No.1 takes centre stage. It is a triumphant display of the young Beethoven's mastery, heralding the beginning of his legendary symphonic journey.
