Milton Keynes Sinfonia concert

2 April 2008

On Saturday I played in a concert by Milton Keynes Sinfonia which included Tchaikowsky's fourth symphony - a fantastic work-out! Tchaikowsky is great for developing your stamina and a wonderful crowd pleaser - and we had a packed audience at the Church of Christ the Cornerstone in Milton Keynes, though I suspect quite a few were there primarily to see Peter Bussereau play the first violin concerto by Bruch. We started the concert with the overture 'Les Franc-Juges' by Berlioz - not a particularly memorable piece other than for the tune that was used for John Freeman's 'Face to Face' interviews which, coincidentally, I had been thinking about a lot last week after watching Ken Stott as Tony Hancock in BBC Four's 'Hancock and Joan'.
