Join us for a wonderful evening with “the world’s most recorded chamber orchestra”
Celebrate the heyday of the Age of Sail with an exquisite programme of music performed by the English Chamber Orchestra in our “Cathedral to Shipbuilding” No.3 Slip.
This musical journey will be hosted by renowned historian Dr David Starkey CBE FSA, who will give an insight to the power of music during the period of Britain’s intense naval expansion of the eighteenth century. Listen to sublime works by Handel, Mozart and Haydn while marvelling at the surrounds of one of the world’s best preserved dockyards of the Age of Sail.
The programme will feature:
George Frideric Handel – Water Music Suite, 1717
Thomas Arne – God Save the King, 1745
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Symphony No.1 in E-flat major, K.16, 1764
Joseph Haydn – London Symphony in G, H.1. No.94 – “Surprise”, 1791
The English Chamber Orchestra is the most recorded chamber orchestra in the world, its discography containing 860 recordings of over 1,500 works by more than 400 composers.
The ECO has also performed in more countries than any other orchestra, and played with many of the world’s greatest musicians. The American radio network CPRN has selected ECO as one of the world’s greatest ‘living’ orchestras. The illustrious history of the orchestra features many major musical figures. Benjamin Britten was the orchestra’s first Patron and a significant musical influence.
Recent tours have included the USA, Bermuda, China, Finland, France, Greece, Slovenia and Austria (culminating in a concert at Vienna’s Musikverein) as well as concerts across the UK and at London’s Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Kings Place and Cadogan Hall.
The Orchestra has been chosen to record many successful film soundtracks including Dario Marianelli’s prizewinning scores for Atonement and Pride and Prejudice, and several James Bond soundtracks, and has taken part in a variety of other film and television projects.
