Parry Karp and the Orchestra playing the Barber Cello Concerto

Maurice Ravel Portrait

Surrey Mozart Players brought its 2013-14 season to a fitting close on Sat 21st June with its traditional Season Finale Gala Concert. After a rousing performance of Weber's Euryanthe Overture, the acclaimed American cellist Parry Karp joined the orchestra for a spellbinding account of Barber's Cello Concerto. performed on the cello which once belonged to Raya Garbousova, for whom the concerto was written. Parry then delighted the audience with an encore of Bach's Sarabande from the 5th Suite in C Minor. The concert concluded with a performance of Vaughan Williams evocative Symphony No 5, the perfect piece to celebrate Midsummer's Day.
The orchestra are now eagerly anticipating the start of it's 2014 - 15 season, with many exciting concerts to look forward to. We welcome back Sasha Sitkvovetsky to play the Sibelius Violin Concerto in September, and will mark the 1914 centenary commemorations in November with a performance of Ravel's

Le Tombeau de Couperin and Vaughan Williams 'On Wenlock Edge'.
March 2015 sees the orchestra return to the Menuhin Hall to perform a Mozart/Schubert programme with the pianist Mark Bebbington. Our brochure is available to download from this website, or click on
