Viennese masterworks and some Spanish flavouring!
The next Kingston Chamber Orchestra concert will commence with Schubert’s symphony no.3 in D major. This work, written when Schubert was only 18, is a masterpiece of concise symphonic form that exudes Viennese grace and sparkles with youthful energy.
The orchestra will be joined by Andrew Zolinsky for Mozart’s dark and brooding C minor piano concerto. This is a work that Mozart wrote to perform himself in Vienna with a large expert orchestra. The wind writing in this piece is more advanced than anything any composer had produced until that time and it still presents a challenge for players today!

Andrew Zolinsky has performed with many of Europe’s leading orchestras under the batons of distinguished conductors. In addition to concerts in the UK, he has also given concerts in the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Japan, Spain
and New York. Andrew is also closely associated with the music of Unsuk Chin. He has performed her complete Etudes for solo piano on many occasions, and gave the London première of her Piano Concerto with the BBCSO. Andrew has recorded for
Cantaloupe, Guild and NMC and his disc of David Lang’s piano music on the Cantaloupe label was released in November 2011.
For the second half of the concert, the orchestra will be joined by the mezzo – Lorna Perry, to perform the complete ballet music for El Amor Brujo (Love the Magician). This piece tells the chilling story of a woman haunted by her dead jealous lover through a colourful evocation of traditional Spanish music.
