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 Andre Schoch, who has been a member of the trumpet group in the Berliner Philharmoniker. In addition to his work in the orchestra, he instructs young musicians at the University of Mannheim and the Karajan Academy, plays chamber music, and performs as a soloist.
