Richard Tunnicliffe cello    

Start your New Year with us as we welcome back cellist, Richard Tunnicliffe, a well-known name in the early music world and someone who has been a significant figure in our development as a group. 

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!

Takács Quartet at John Innes Centre Saturday 10 November 2018


Saturday 10 November 2018, 7.30pm
Takács Quartet

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.

Pre-concert talk with Misha Donat and the artists 6.30pm

Programmed by Norfolk & Norwich Chamber Music
