Nonesuch Orchestra Lunchtime Concert

On Thursday 23rd May at 12.45pm, “the admirable Nonesuch Orchestra” returns to present another exciting lunchtime concert at St Clement Danes.

It opens with CPE Bach’s Cello Concerto in A, dancing with energy and grace, with the outstanding young cellist Alistair Baumann as soloist.  Then follows the world premiere of Robin Wedderburn’s Variations, composed specially for the Nonesuch Orchestra.  Finally, the electrifying Concerto in D for String Orchestra by the great Igor Stravinsky – his intense energy is palpable in the famous photo by George Grantham Bain featured in the poster.

Admission is free, and there will be a retiring collection to help support the Nonesuch Orchestra’s vital work bringing live music to schools all over London.

50 minutes of musical joy – what better way to spend a lunchtime?
