East Anglia Chamber Orchestra

EAChO Concert



The world’s greatest percussionist and the region’s premier chamber orchestra team up for an exciting evening of music. Dame Evelyn Glennie is one of Britain’s most celebrated musicians, a virtuoso of extraordinary gifts, compelling musicianship, and infectious energy whose performances span the whole range of percussion instruments.

In this eagerly anticipated Cambridge show she plays the wonderful concerto for marimba and string orchestra (1999) by the contemporary American composer Eric Ewazen, music by turns sparkling, vibrant, heartfelt, and joyful—and always entertaining.

The evening begins with the beautiful and atmospheric Summer Evening by the popular Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály (1882-1967), a characteristic combination of lush orchestration and the folk song melodies of his native country. The much-loved ‘Pastoral’ Symphony by Beethoven completes the programme, an unforgettable depiction of the landscape and people of the countryside, complete with folk dancing, a violent thunderstorm, and a song of thanks. The concert promises to be an unmissable evening.
