Played in the City Hall, Cork on the 10th December with the Cork Symphony Orchestra, now renamed the City of Cork Symphony Orchestra as it has just come under the partronage of the Lord Mayor. I am the principal cellist and we play under the baton of the wonderful Kieth Pasco.
It was a Proms concert featuring Julian Lloyd Webber, who played the Elgar cello concerto. Fine playing with deeply sensitive and delicate passages. It was wonderful to hear and to play with him.
I gave him my book of Irish airs, so perhaps next concert he may include one as an encore!
Also performing was the wonderful Cork soprano Majella Cullagh, and the Fleischmann Choir.
