A feature in every NCO season is the regular appearance of the principal players as the NCO Soloists. In this concert, our leader and Artistic Director, Nicholas Ward, presents a performance of the two composers whose works inhabit the very centre of the string quartet repertoire, Haydn and Beethoven, before taking us through the ever-popular exploration of African-American music that is Dvorak’s ‘American’. Enjoy a glass of wine in the interval and the chance to meet the musicians during an evening that promises to be the perfect way to escape the winter blues.
