Doset County Orchestra - Dorset County Orchestra
Venue: Wimborne Minster
Date: Sat 18th Mar 2017
Time: 7:30 pm
Cost: £10 under 18 free

The Dorset County Orchestra welcome back Guest Conductor Martin Henderson and Piano Soloist Duncan Honeybourne for their Spring Concert at Wimborne Minster on Saturday 18th March 2017 at 7.30pm.
The programme features two of the great romantic era compositions:
Brahms Second Piano Concerto, a gargantuan work at nearly fifty minutes in duration. It has four movements and everything about it — the structure, the texture, the way the piano is integrated into the orchestral fabric is very symphonic.
Dvorak's 7th Symphony, also known as his London Symphony. This symphony was premiered in London’s St. James’s Hall on 22 April 1885, hence the title, but is perhaps one of his most nationalistic works, packed with references to his Czech homeland and full of Slavonic melodies.

bridportLIVE - 6 HANDS - John Williams/John Etheridge/Gary Ryan
Venue: Eype Centre for the Arts, Mount Lane, Eype, Bridport, Dorset. DT6 6AR.
Date: Thu 23rd Mar 2017
Time: 7:00 pm
Cost: £25.00

6 Hands Ensemble continue their series of UK performances as a new collaborative guitar trio. They will be performing a series of concerts together in 2016 and 2017 featuring a colourful and varied programme of solos, duos and trios with performances at venues in London and throughout the UK.

John Williams, classical guitar virtuoso, is known for his wide-ranging approach to repertory, which includes appearances playing electric rock guitar and international music. John recorded "Cavatina" by Stanley Myers and some years later Cleo Laine wrote lyrics and recorded it as the song "He Was Beautiful" accompanied by Williams. The guitar version became a worldwide hit single when it was used as the theme tune to the Oscar-winning film The Deer Hunter (1978). Williams is a visiting professor and honorary member of the Royal Academy of Music in London.

"The guitarist John Etheridge - playing an acoustic instrument for once - was deftly brilliant throughout. His duet with the other guitarist was the highlight of the evening." Martin Gayford - Daily Telegraph.

"...Etheridge redeemed the genre, in short he made the guitar talk and the audience listened with rapt attention." Phil Johnson - The Guardian.

The UK guitarist Gary Ryan is one of the world’s leading exponents of the instrument and has won international critical acclaim for his exceptional technical control, profound musical insight and entertaining recital programmes. He is also well known for his highly innovative guitar compositions and in May 2013 was awarded a prestigious Fellowship of the Royal College of Music, London, by HRH Prince Charles in recognition of his outstanding achievements in the international musical world.
