MORE CLASSICAL MUSIC AT THE LAWN

 

A season of classical concerts by internationally recognised musicians continues at The Lawn this weekend.

 

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

 

The second concert in the University of Lincoln International Concert Series takes place on Sunday 1st December and will feature the following programme:

 

o       Schumann ‘Märchenerzählungen’ (‘Fairy Tales’) Op 15d for clarinet,

viola and piano

o       Schumann ‘Märchenbilder’ (‘Fairytale Pictures’) Op 113 for viola and piano

o       Mozart ‘Kegelstatt’ Trio in E flat for piano, clarinet and viola, K498

 

“This is a wonderfully varied and interesting programme for which we welcome, for the first time in this series, the leading American clarinettist and Juilliard professor Charles Neidich and the internationally recognised British pianist Ronan O’Hora,” said a university spokesman.

 

Joining Charles Neidich and Ronan O’Hora will be Graham Oppenheimer (viola).

 

The performance begins at 3.30pm after a pre-concert talk at 2.45pm. Tickets cost £8 (£7 concessions), £3 for students and under-16s.
