UNIVERSITY SUPPORTS INTERNATIONAL CONCERT SERIES

 

A new season of classical concerts by internationally recognised musicians begins at The Lawn next month.

 

The concerts are being staged thanks to a collaboration between artistic director Graham Oppenheimer and the University of Lincoln.

 

The series will feature My-Kung Lee, Alexander Janiczek, Lars Anders Tomter, Graham Oppenheimer, Antonio Lysy, Martin Rosco, Ronan O’ Hora, James Lisney, Christoph Richter, Nikolas Jones, Emma Kirkby, Charles Neidich and Ulf Wallin.

 

The first concert in the University of Lincoln International Concert Series takes place at The Lawn on Sunday, 27th October when the programme will be as follows:

 

Mozart Piano Quartet in G minor, K478

Debussy “Children’s Corner” for solo piano

Ysa˙e Sonata for solo violin no 6

Mozart Piano Quartet in E flat, K493

 

Performing at The Lawn will be Alexander Janiczek (violin), Graham Oppenheimer (viola), Nikolas Jones (cello) and Martin Roscoe (piano).

 

The concert will give the audience an opportunity to compare the two piano quartet masterpieces of Mozart contrasted with the unusual and expressive Ysa˙e Sonata and to hear again the leading British pianist Martin Roscoe.

 

The performances begin at 3.30pm after a pre-concert talk at 2.45pm. Tickets cost £8 (£7 concessions), £3 for students and under-16s. A season ticket for the series of six tickets costs £42.
