A programme of early Classical music including Haydn’s cello concerto in C and music by CPE Bach, JC Bach and Mozart.
We would love to have the hall filled with excited young cellists, so we are inviting any cellist aged 18 or under to come FREE of charge… no catch or small print at all.
Either book via the Theatre Royal tel: 01603-630000 or just turn up on the door to claim your free ticket. (Cannot be booked via the on line booking system .. too complicated!).
PLEASE do forward to any young cellists…and consider coming yourself too?As well as the Haydn Cello concerto, Richard will be directing the programme from the cello.. good for the youngsters to see it doesn’t always have to be the violinists who lead!

One of the joys of Christmas is looking forward to the familiar and cherished traditions, so escape the bustle and commercial pressures of 21st century Christmas just for one evening and join us as we travel back in time to enjoy the sounds of Handel’s Messiah in our magnificent Cathedral, with the Chamber choir and a fine group of soloists directed by Master of Music, Ashley Grote. Norwich Cathedral Chamber Choir are joined by Norwich Baroque for their ever-popular annual performance of Handel’s much-loved oratorio.
Early booking is strongly recommended as this annual treat usually sells out in advance.
Haydn Quartet in D, Op.20 No.4
Bartók Quartet No.1
Brahms Quartet in A minor Op.51 No.2
Bartók’s First Quartet was described by his compatriot Kodály as ‘a gradual return to life, more evocative with its modest four instruments than Berlioz with his huge orchestra’. Framing the Bartók is the wit and elegance of Haydn, and the eloquent passion of Brahms.
