Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford

Friday, 28 April 7.30pm

I am looking forward to collaborating with composer and conductor, Gregory Rose, to perform his new Oboe Concerto with the Jupiter Orchestra on 28 April. The concerto is a most exciting work, inspired by bird calls heard on Oxford’s Shotover during lockdown. The 10-minute work contains brilliant acrobatics for the oboe as well as a lyrical slow section, shared with a French Horn solo (to be played by Julian Faultless), a cadenza and a scherzo-like section leading to a reflective ending.

The concert, to celebrate Gregory Rose’s 75th birthday, will also include Janáček’s Idyll Suite and Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings. I will open the concert with Albinoni’s D minor Concerto, Op 9 No 2 – a real favourite.
