Playlist with Catherine Hewgill

Principal Cello Katie Hewgill introduces a program of music that has inspired her during her career.

Katie Hewgill is a much-loved stalwart of the orchestra she joined in 1989. Her beloved cello has been coming to work for longer than that – the instrument was made in 1729 by Carlo Tononi. And Katie begins her playlist in the same decade with Bach’s Third Brandenburg. There’s more baroque music with Vivaldi’s virtuoso showcase for two cellos. But it’s not all dazzle: the gentle, songlike third movement from Mendelssohn’s Reformation Symphony is like a musical plea for peace. These are just some of the pieces that have inspired Katie during her career and which she will introduce on the night.

Join us at the bar after the concert for a drink with the musicians!
