Event description

Description

Join us for a special fundraising concert marking 115 years of Liberal Judaism!

Entitled Beyond Text: Interpretation as Meaning, the concert programme will present a well-known repertoire with a personal twist, including classical improvisations inspired by the masterpieces performed; and multiple performances of Debussy’s much-beloved Syrinx.

It will feature renowned pianist David Dolan and his guests, critically acclaimed flautist Abigail Dolan and cellist and conductor Thomas Carroll.

Praised for his classical improvisation, David Dolan has performed at major venues and festivals all over the world and made live recordings for radio and TV.

Away from the stage, David is a researcher and educator who devotes an important part of his career to the revival of the art of classical improvisation. He was praised by Yehudi Menuhin for “giving new life to classical music”.

Described by The Strad Magazine as a player of “authority, passion, full of colour and underpinned by a clear musical intelligence”, Welsh cellist Thomas Carroll launched his career when he won both Young Concert Artists Trust and Young Concert Artists, New York. Since then he has performed in leading concert venues and appeared as concerto soloist with orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Orchestras and London Philharmonic.

Praised for her imaginative performances, Abigail Dolan’s career combines solo and chamber music performances worldwide. She also takes a leading role in the innovative Symphonova Orchestra.

This fantastic night of music will also feature a champagne and canapé reception, silent auction and launch of the 'My Jewish Story' exhibition. (PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND THE RECEPTION, PLEASE ENSURE YOU PURCHASE A RECEPTION & CONCERT TICKET)
