TENTH ANNIVERSARY SEASON 2015/16
BOOKING IS NOW OPEN
This year Camerata Musica marks its tenth birthday. To celebrate, there is programme that brings together artists who have given some of our most memorable concerts over the last decade - among them the pianists Dame Misuko Uchida and Alexander Melnikov, and the Belcea and Artemis Quartets - as well as other internationally acclaimed artists who are appearing with Camerata Musica for the first time. The celebrated Juilliard Quartet, one of the most famous names in American music, makes its Camerata Musica debut in January, as does the great French cellist, Jean-Guihen Queyras.
The Austrian-Hungarian violinist, Christoph Koncz - the youngest Principal ever appointed to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and a distinguished soloist in his own right - joins the Camerata Musica programme immediately after concerts in Salzburg's 2016 Mozart Week, during which he will give performances (with Marc Minkowski and Les Musiciens du Louvre) using the composer's own violin. He is joined for his Cambridge concert by the outstanding Serbian pianist Aleksandar Madzar.
This year's series reaches its festive climax with a concert of baroque masterpieces given by the Dunedin Consort, under its Gramophone Award-winning director, John Butt. Violinist Cecilia Bernardini and recorder-player Pamela Thorby are the soloists in Bach's Fourth Brandenburg Concerto. Soprano Sophie Bevan - whose 2015-16 season also includes debuts at the Salzburg Festival and the Metropolitan Opera, New York - sings Handel's Gloria, a masterpiece long thought lost and only rediscovered in 2001.
As ever, Camerata Musica records its gratitude to its magnificent group of Patrons and Benefactors. A munificent benefaction from Mr and Mrs Adam Horne's family foundation has once again provided core funding for student tickets, and generous sponsorship funding for particular concerts has been given by Professor Dr Hubert Burda, Mr Dilip Chandra, Sir Ralph Kohn and the Kohn Foundation, Mr and Mrs Thomas Murphy, and Mr Fred Shahrabani.
