Kammerphilharmonie Europa or Chamber Philharmonic of Europe returns to Ilkley for a second visit. Founded in Cologne in 2006 by Russian-born Leonid Tritus, this 60 strong orchestra brings to Ilkley 10 musicians from various European countries to entertain us with baroque and classical repertoire.
As well as Bach’s well-known E major violin concerto and an Albinoni violin concerto arranged for the trumpet, we will hear the even better-known Adagio in G minor, which is probably not by Albinoni. As a contrast the Kammerphilharmonie will play two delightful student works for strings from the late nineteenth century by the Danish Carl Nielsen and the Czech Josef Suk, who was taught by Dvorak and eventually became his son-in-law.
