Posted 13 April 2018 in News
Musicians from all over Europe, who happen to be doctors, have joined together under the direction of a professional conductor, Simon Wright, to perform a concert in aid of OHMI a unique charity enabling music-making for disabled people.
The concert performed by the European Doctors Orchestra on 3 June in Warwick, begins with a celebration of the making of the spitfires and continues with a lament for love.
Marking the centenary of the end of the First World War, Nicholas McCarthy will perform the Ravel concerto for left hand. Nicholas, who was born without a right hand, became the first left hand only pianist to graduate from the Royal College of Music. He will talk about his personal journey and the work of OHMI.
After the interval, the remarkable young saxophonist, Jess Gillam, woodwind finalist of BBC Young Musician 2016, will play a transcription of Marcello’s Oboe concerto, accompanied by members of the orchestra.
Then to the mystery of Elgar’s Variations….
