Concert Triumph! An enthusiastic 300 strong audience joined Nottingham Symphony Orchestra on Saturday 17th November in the Albert Hall, Nottingham for a concert featuring Shostakovich's mighty 5th Symphony and the ever popular Tchaikovsky 1st Piano Concerto. Nineteen year old British pianist and former BBC Young Musician category finalist Julian Trevelyan (pictured) gave a passionate performance of the Tchaikovsky that drew wild applause. Opening the programme was Khatchaturian's exuberantly tuneful Masquerade Suite. A super night.
World Premier! It's not very often an amateur orchestra gets to perform a brand new work, but that's exactly what happened at NSO's final concert of the 17/18 season. In St Mary's Church, Nottingham on Saturday 7th July, NSO had the huge pleasure of giving the world premier of a new horn concerto by Nottingham composer David Machell. The soloist was the Orchestra's principle horn, Robert Parker. His bravura performance brought cheers, much applause and many postive comments from the audience of over two hundred. David and Robert have written an article on the piece and its birth that has appeared in the British Horn Society (BHS) magazine. Click here to read (by kind permission of the BHS).
