It is now recognised amongst the UK’s leading period instrument ensembles, winning awards, and accolades for recordings and broadcasts from Radio 3, Classic FM and Gramophone Magazine. The Band’s most recent CD ‘Handel Sonatas for Violin and Basso Continuo’ was shortlisted in the category for chamber music/small ensemble at the Grammy Awards. The Brook Street Band relishes its Norfolk connections, with frequent concerts and education projects in the region.  The Band founded the highly successful biennial festival love: Handel, which combines concerts with an education programme for young people.

Mozart Orchestra Autumn Concert Saturday 5 October

Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade

Conductor Tadeusz Kaznowski
Leader Fiona Hutchins

Conducted by our Resident Conductor Tadeusz Kaznowski, the Mozart Orchestra offers a dazzling and colourful concert of music to close its 2019 season!

Rimsky Korsakov’s Scheherazade, considered to be Rimsky Korsakov’s most popular work combining features typical of Russian music and Smetana’s Vltava one of the most widely performed symphonic poems which describes the course of the river Vltava starting from two small springs to the unification of both streams into a single current.

Founded in 1961, the Mozart Orchestra has established itself as one of the leading orchestras in the local area, giving up to four concerts from May to October, usually three in Norwich and one further afield in East Anglia. The orchestra explores a wide-ranging repertoire and showcases both locally and nationally renowned soloists.
