This concert opens with a short entry to the world of minimalistic music from living composer Arvo Pärt, his Fratres- his widely admired piece Fratres.

Playing the enigmatic Schumann Cello Concerto is Laura van der Heijden, awarded BBC Young Musician in 2012 at just 15 years of age. MKCO is delighted to welcome such a huge young talent to MK.

The finale is Beethovens’ Pastoral Symphony which encapsulates his love of nature and is a beautiful expression of country life in all forms.

During this first concert of The Venue series, the MK Commmunity Foundation will be presenting the Christopher Hopkinson Memorial Bursary to the winner of their 2017 award for musical excellence. MKCO is delighted to partner with MK Community Foundation to find a talented winner.

Rarely performed in England, our four seasons with a ‘twist’ concert is set to be one of the most exciting performances of the year.

Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is one of the best loved and most performed works in the classical repertoire. Add the fiery tango rythms of Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires and you have a truly intoxicating mix of music.

Francesco D’orazio is an internally renowned violinist with performances across Europe, North and South America, Mexico, Australia, China and Japan. Francesco will perform throughout the concert, which is played without interval, in another unusual turn in classical concert performance.

It is rare to find to two symphonies in the same programme ,so, for Mozart to open and Haydn to close is a real treat.

The concert surprise will be the soloist and their music. MKCO, though their partnership with Yamaha, will showcase the talent of the winner of the 2018 Yamaha Music Foundation of Europe scholarship. This year’s competition is for wind and brass players and the concerto will be announced once the winner has been chosen in February 2018.
