Sudbury Symphony Orchestra Concert, St Peter's Curch, Sudbury, 26th March

Sudbury Symphony Orchestra is delighted to announce that William Knight, one of Britain's most talented young clarinettist, will be their soloist in Weber’s 2nd Clarinet Concerto in their concert on Sunday 26th March.

William began playing the clarinet at the age of 7, and now studies at the Royal College of Music, in 2015 he won the Clarinet Prize in their annual Woodwind Competition. He has performed at the BBC Proms and in the Barbican, The Royal Festival Hall and The Sage, Gateshead. Weber’s 2nd clarinet concerto, dating from 1811, has become one of the most important in the clarinet repertoire.

It is one of the most stunning with its sheer virtuoso effects and many dramatic contrasts between the instrument's brilliant high notes and the dark, rich sonority of the lower range. We are sure you will be dazzled by William’s playing of this wonderful piece.

Sudbury Symphony Orchestra will also be performing Bizet’s Symphony No 1 in C. He wrote this first symphony when he was just 17 and the work is astonishingly mature for someone so young combining remarkably sensitive writing for individual instruments in the orchestra with real confidence in his own individual style. The symphony has beautiful melodies, rich orchestration, and elegant charm and is a delight both to play and to hear.

Starting the concert we have Rossini’s Overture to the Barber of Seville one of the most popular opera overtures, a lovely start to the evening.

We hope you will join us for this evening of really wonderful music.
