MATILDA LLOYD trumpet, ERSO, conductor JONATHAN BLOXHAM
British Conductor Jonathan Bloxham will be performing with ERSO for the third time and has invited the trumpet player from the Berliner Philharmoniker to perform as a soloist. Having begun his career as a cellist, Bloxham has already conducted prestigious orchestras in Europe and Asia. The ERSO concert will feature an excerpt from Henry Purcell’s Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary, which the composer wrote for the funeral of Queen Mary II. We will also hear the Coriolan Overture, written by Ludwig van Beethoven for Heinrich Joseph von Collin’s tragedy, and Franz Schubert’s final, expansive Symphony No. 9.
Joseph Haydn’s popular trumpet concerto will be performed by Matilda Lloyd. Hailed as “remarkable” by the Daily Telegraph, British trumpeter Matilda Lloyd is a fast-rising young artist with exceptional poise and musicality.
