Event description

Description

We welcome British violinist Francesca Barritt to our Concert Series for an exploration of the wonderful repertoire written for solo violin, presenting works old and new, exploring the expressive, dramatic and virtuosic qualities of the instrument. From well-loved works of J. S. Bach and Ysaye, to a new commission from a student composer at Royal Holloway, plus a performance of Alan Ridout’s Ferdinand the Bull, Munro Leaf’s tale about a peace-making bull scored for violin and narrator.

Equally at home as concert soloist, orchestral leader and chamber musician, Francesca enjoys a busy and varied freelance schedule. Recent solo engagements have included performances of Beethoven, Bruch, Brahms and Sibelius violin concertos, Brahms’ double concerto and Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending. Increasingly in demand as a chamber musician, Francesca has appeared at Wigmore Hall and the Purcell Room, on BBC Radio 3 from the Bath Festival and for BBC Proms Radio 3 Composer Portraits.

Refreshments will be available to purchase in the 20-minute interval.

Season Tickets apply to this event.

When you arrive for a College event at our Egham campus, please park in car parks 12 or 4.

Car park 12 can be accessed by turning right as you enter the main College gates and is located next to the tennis courts. If this car park is full, please drive further onto our campus to car park 4, which can be accessed by turning left at the mini-roundabout behind the Students’ Union. If you find both of these car parks full, we have a further large car park 14, which can be used by event guests and is located across the A30 on our North Campus, accessed via Harvest Road. You can see each of our car parks on the map opposite. We would advise that you bring the College map to campus with you and give yourself plenty of time to park.

Blue Badge holders can find designated parking spaces in Car park 1W, as well as between Gardeners Lodge and the Williams Annexe. You can find these locations by looking at our campus map opposite. If you require any assistance on arrival, please contact our premises team in advance of your visit by emailing: premisesadmin@royalholloway.ac.uk and they will be happy to help.
