Nicola Benedetti is coming to Grayshott  

Nicola Benedetti is one of the most sought-after violinists of her generation. Her ability to captivate audiences with her innate musicianship and dynamic presence, coupled with her wide appeal as a high-profile advocate for classical music, has made her one of the most influential classical artists of today. She is, arguably, the most famous British violinist since the time of Yehudi Menuhin.

So it is with great pride that we can announce that Nicola Benedetti MBE will perform the Brahms Violin Concerto with the famous London Mozart Players for Grayshott Concerts on Wednesday 10th January 2018 at St Luke's Church, Grayshott. The Programme will include Beethoven's Coriolan Overture and Brahms' Symphony No.1 in C minor.

"It has taken us 10 years to persuade Nicola to come to Grayshott" says artistic director, Vivien Harrison. "She is in such demand around the world that we’ve just had to be patient. It's so exciting!" The performance, starting at 7.30pm, will be conducted by her long-time associate, Leonard Elschenbroich, who will be known to many as the accomplished and charismatic cellist working in trio with Nicola and pianist, Alexei Grynyuk.

 

General booking for the Nicola Benedetti concert opens 18th November 2017

An Exclusive Invitation to Friends and Their Guests to enjoy An Evening with One of the UK’s Most Accomplished Young Ensembles  

Every year, we aim to provide exceptional music for Friends at the Annual Friends Evening. Exceptional music, exceptional performers – the very best for you as Friends, because without your support, none of our other concerts would be possible.

So, on Friday 27 October (Please note REVISED DATE), we’ve invited one of the most exciting young groups we’ve heard. They’re making a big name for themselves – and we thought you’d enjoy them too. They are Septura, an astonishing group of seven brass players performing on a variety of instruments. The programme, called: Seven Deadly Sins, covers a range of periods and styles, showcasing their immaculate versatility, balance and sumptuous velvety tone.

“Performances of remarkable richness, expressive intensity and almost nonchalant virtuosity. British brass playing is the envy of the world, and when you hear Septura you can hear exactly why” comments Royal College of Music. Now with 5 acclaimed CDs with Naxos, the Observer says: “Uplifting debut from a magnificent seven, all ace musicians, as this stirring, thoughtful CD for Naxos confirms.”

And please note that there is no limit on the number of guests you can bring (subject to availability of seats, of course). So, it makes sense to book as early as you can to avoid disappointment.

Tickets: £30, St Luke’s, Grayshott, ‘sit where you like’. Including complimentary wines. For more information, ring 01428 606666 (voicemail).
