The English Chamber Orchestra, directed by Stephanie Gonley returns to Cadogan Hall for this special concert, celebrating 60 years of the ECO.

The programme explores music that has been closely associated with the Orchestra over the past 60 years. Opening with the virtuosic and enthralling Divertimento for String Orchestra by Béla Bartók, leader Stephanie Gonley then performs J.S Bach’s Violin Concerto in A minor followed by Tchaikovsky’s sublime Andante Cantabile. The final work is the ever-popular Serenade for Strings by Dvořák, a work the Orchestra has recorded many times with artists closely associated with the ECO including Raymond Leppard CBE, Rafael Kubelík and Daniel Barenboim.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Cadogan Hall for this performance that is also staged in tribute to Sir Roger Gifford, Chairman of the ECO Music Society who sadly passed in May 2021 and was a valued supporter of the orchestra for many years.

Duration: approx. 1 hour 50 minutes (incl. interval)
