Concerts for Craswall are delighted to welcome back conductor Sam Laughton – a long time friend and supporter – to direct this special 25th Anniversary concert of music for choir and cello.
Featuring pieces by JS Bach, Haydn and Tavener the programme comprises a varied group of pieces, and makes for some glorious choral and chamber music, all performed by the acclaimed Elysian Singers, together with international cellist Amy Norrington.
Perhaps most notable is Haydn’s C Major Cello Concerto No 1 – a staple of the cello repertoire. From the solo cello’s triumphant opening chord and the lively conversation between the consort’s strings and the soloist, it’s a perfect vehicle for a player’s technique. In particular, the final pulse-quickening movement offers a wonderful six-minute showcase of what the cello can do.
Don’t miss this very special celebration.
