The University of Surrey's prolific Chamber Choir and Orchestra present two beautiful choral pieces and a UK world premiere.
Stravinsky Dumbarton Oaks
Faure Requiem Mass
Conducted by Russell Keable
Performed by the University of Surrey Chamber Choir and Orchestra
Koželuh Concerto in B flat major for Piano 4 Hands and Orchestra (UK Premiere)
Maureen Galea and Margaret Roberts - piano
The idea of performing this concerto is part of an initiative to promote piano duet repertoire after Maureen Galea launched a biennial 4-hand piano competition for University music students called ‘Quattro Mani!’ in March 2011. It is written by a Czech composer who was Mozart's rival and successor, and is also one of the few pieces written for this genre.
This promises to be a wonderful and varied concert.
