Now time for some music by Felix Mendelssohn's good friend, Prince Albert (i.e. Queen Victoria's husband).… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
Next week we give the world premiere of a new piece by composer Stevie Wishart as part of our Rough with the Smooth concert at Southbank Centre.
A concerto written for our Principal Double Bass Chi-chi Nwanoku MBE, it had its first rehearsal yesterday when a small group of musicians met for an initial workshop and run-through with the composer in attendance. We were there to take some pictures of the rehearsal, and there’ll be a video interview with composer Stevie Wishart coming later this week.
The premiere is on 12 May at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. Details.
