Last night’s final concert of the season was truly special! Soloist Henry Hargreaves, the winner of our 2019 ERSO Soloist of the Year
competition, gave an incredibly poised and characterful performance of the Schumann Cello Concerto. At ERSO we are so proud of Henry who is also our fabulous Principal Cello.
The audience clearly loved his playing and were highly appreciative and the the orchestra had a ball too! We caught up with Henry and he said: “It was wonderful last night, thank you so much for the amazing opportunity to perform that incredible piece with orchestra. I enjoyed it very much and the rehearsal process was also very rewarding.”
The evening ended with a stirring performance of Mahler’s epic 1st Symphony, expertly conducted by Christopher Stark.
At ERSO we were delighted to be a part of the Waterloo Festival and loved performing to such a packed and enthusiastic audience!
