My Favourite Concert
Cerys Rowcliffe - Leader
Lutoslawski - Symphonic Variations
Scriabin - Poem of Ecstasy
Shostakovich - Symphony no. 7 "Leningrad"
"This was a particularly challenging programme and the whole orchestra worked together to give a performance I was very proud of.
The Scriabin and Lutoslawski were unfamiliar to most of us, but our weeks of rehearsal paid off, especially in the Scriabin, with the Abbey providing the perfect venue for this huge work.
Shostakovich is one of my favourite composers with this Symphony being one of his best. I wont forget the emotion or exhilaration felt after the final note for a long time!"
