Academy of Great St.Mary's Concert with International Soloist Chloe Hanslip

We have a wonderful concert with Chloë Hanslip, international violist playing the beautiful Mozart Violin concerto No. 3 and the premier of Adam Pound’s evocative 2nd Symphony. We are delighted that Chloë is returning to play for the third time with the Academy of Great St. Mary’s, a rare opportunity to hear such a distinguished violinist playing in Cambridge. The programme also includes Schubert's Symphony No. 8 “Unfinished” and Brahms' Hungarian Dances Nos. 1 and 3.

Chloë Hanslip (b. 1987) has established herself as an artist of distinction on the international stage. Prodigiously talented, she made her BBC Proms debut at fourteen and her US concerto debut at fifteen and has performed at major venues in the UK (Royal Festival Hall, Wigmore Hall), Europe (Vienna Musikverein, Hamburg Laeiszhalle, Paris Louvre and Salle Gaveau, St Petersburg Hermitage) as well as Carnegie Hall, Metropolitan Arts Space in Tokyo and the Seoul Arts Centre. She has collaborated with many leading conductors worldwide, has a wide ranging repertoire and an extensive discography. Chloë plays a Guarneri del Gesu 1737.

Adam Pounds (Trinity Hall) studied music at the London College of Music and composition with Sir Lennox Berkeley. He has written works for a great range of combinations including chamber and vocal music as well as large-scale orchestral works, all of which have been publicly performed. He later continued his studies at Goldsmith’s College, London for a B.Mus. and then for a Master’s degree at Cambridge.
