John Suchet to Open Beethoven Concert
Tue, 16 October 2012
Classic FM presenter and author John Suchet will introduce the Hertfordshire Chorus Beethoven ‘Missa Solemnis’ concert on Saturday 20th October at 7.30pm at St Albans Cathedral.
John describes himself as having a lifelong passion for Beethoven and his music. His new book “Beethoven the Man Revealed” was launched at the beginning of October and the author will be available to sign copies in the Cathedral from 6.45pm as well as after the concert.
Beethoven himself regarded his ‘Missa Solemnis’ as his greatest work: beautiful, sublime and grand. The concert, under the Musical Directorship of David Temple, features top-class soloists Naomi Harvey, Diana Moore, Joshua Ellicott and Graeme Danby with the London Orchestra da Camera.
Tickets from £7.50 to £25 are available from www.hertfordshirechorus.org.uk or from the Cathedral Box Office on 01727 890256.
Wine and soft drinks will be available to purchase before the concert in the South Transept, along with copies of John Suchet’s book.
