Journey to Bohemia with Orpheus Sinfonia
For one exclusive night only Orpheus Sinfonia welcomes the celebrated musician Heinrich Schiff on a rare visit to London to conduct Dvořák’s Cello Concerto and Mahler’s Symphony No 1, with soloist Thomas Carroll at the Cadogan Hall on Wednesday 19 March 2014 at 7.30 pm.
Thomas Carroll, taught and mentored by Heinrich Schiff, now continues to relay and pass on this combined knowledge to many cellists at the Royal College of Music and Menuhin School who now play with Orpheus Sinfonia. This meeting of great minds gives us a unique opportunity to celebrate our love of music, share knowledge and encourage the very best of emerging talent – Orpheus Sinfonia’s mission statement in a nutshell.
Orpheus Sinfonia is delighted and honoured to welcome the world famous cellist and conductor Heinrich Schiff to conduct this concert, celebrating the music of Bohemia. Two symphonic masterpieces and favourites of the repertoire: Dvořák’s Cello Concerto – the most beloved Cello Concerto ever written, followed by the ‘Titan’ - Mahler’s iconic First Symphony, a piece with its roots deep in folk music and a flavour so distinctive to his native Bohemia.
