Docklands Sinfonia is delighted to welcome back to St Anne’s international cello virtuoso Leonard Elschenbroich for a performance of Prokofiev’s Sinfonia Concertante for cello and orchestra.
Leonard Elschenbroich has excited interest as one of the most charismatic cellists of his generation since receiving the Leonard Bernstein award at the opening concert of the 2009 Schleswig Holstein Festival, following his performance of the Brahms Double with Anne Sophie Mutter under the direction of Christoph Eschenbach.
Since then, Leonard joined the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist scheme in 2012, a prestigious award offering performances and recordings with all the BBC orchestras and at the BBC Proms
Previous performances by Leonard with Docklands Sinfonia have been hugely popular and tickets are expected to be in big demand.
Docklands Sinfonia will also be continuing its strong track recording of promoting young British composers with the world premiere of ‘Lovely Roof’ by one of our oboe players, Jesse Bescoby.
