A MESSAGE FROM MICHAEL

As well as favourites from Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart and Bruch, Orchestra Pro Anima’s next concert at Christ Church features the double bass in Bottesini’s famous Gran Duo for violin and bass. I’m thrilled to be playing this with Tom Martin who, like Bottesini, is a bit of a renaissance man! As well as his work with LSO and New York Philharmonic, he also makes double basses. Bottesini started by being a violinist and then switched to the bass when he found out he could get a scholarship to study, as he had no money. Later he composed operas and many works for the bass.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

We welcome back Eleanor and Irina on Sunday 22nd September at 3.00 p.m.

And we can’t wait. We know a fabulous afternoon awaits as, after hearing Eleanor and Irina last year, the audience immediately started saying, “when will they be back?” So, here we are, a year on and here they are.
If you missed their last visit to Christ Church, Malvern born violinist Eleanor Percy and pianist Irina Lyakhovskaya have been performing recitals together since 2000. They gave their Wigmore Hall debut in 2005 to critical acclaim and have since returned to perform there several times. They have given concerts at many of Europe’s leading venues, including the Southbank Centre, St Petersburg Philharmonic Hall, Porto Coliseum and the Smetana Hall in Prague. Their work has been broadcast on BBC television and radio and featured on Classic FM. They have recorded works the complete Mozart Sonatas for the Melodiya label.
We can anticipate a glorious afternoon with a programme that includes works by Beethoven, Dvorak and Franck, see the programme our back page.

Tickets £12 (students £6) on the door and can be reserved by e mailing angie@christchurch.org.uk and you can also view their website for more information at www.percy-lyakhovskaya.com
