We are very pleased to be welcoming Craig Ogden to Milton Keynes as guitar soloist in the ever-popular Concierto de Aranjuez which has a secure place in the Classic FM Hall of Fame rankings.

Craig is a Classic FM star in his own right, too. His albums Summer Guitar (2014) and Craig Ogden and Friends (2015) both went straight to No. 1 in the classical chart.

The evening’s programme begins and ends with a symphony, adding further steps in the orchestra’s exploration of the great works of Beethoven and his mentor, Haydn.

Conductor:Damian Iorio

 

Due to Raphael Wallfisch’s, unexpected withdrawal from this concert  we are delighted to inform you that the brilliant young cellist Alexey Stadler will take his place.

Alexey is one of the brightest young cellists of his generation and winner of the 2012 TONALi Grand Prix in Hamburg. In the last year he has performed at a number of high profileengagements across Europe: the BBC Proms under Vasily Petrenko; the San Francisco Symphony and Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, both with Vladimir Ashkenazy; the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra. Festival appearances included the International Chamber Music Festival Stavanger, St Petersburg’s White Nights Festival and the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival.

Born into a family of musicians, Alexey began to play the cello at the age of four. He began his studies with Alexey Lazko and continued his education at the Rimsky-Korsakov College of Music in St Petersburg. He regularly attends masterclasses with great musicians such as David Geringas and Frans Helmerson.

The programme remains as advertised. Alexey will perform Haydn’s Cello Concerto No.1 as the centrepiece of a concert exploring the works of Ravel, with a little taste of Mozart as a starter

Saint-Georges L'Amant Anonyme Overture

Beethoven Violin Concerto

SoloistHyeyoon Park

Mozart

Symphony No. 39

Conductor: Damian Iorio

 

This final concert of the season is a celebration of strings.

Lesser known than Mozart but in a similar style, Joseph Boulogne Chevalier de Saint Georges was a brilliant composer and musician with many believing that Mozart was influenced by his music. Our opening overture is a charismatic introduction to his work.

Hyeyoon Park made her orchestra debut at the age of nine with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. Since then, she has studied music in Korea, the USA and Berlin and she has performed across the world. In 2012 Hyeyoon received the London Music Masters Award, which opened up her UK career. On the concert platform Hyeyoon Park combines integrity with elegance, focus with panache, all of which combines to make her an artist of true style and virtuosity. We are delighted that she will debut in MK with us in this celebration year.
