Cratfield performers in Bernstein Prom

gallery-john_wilson_large3It’s well known that John Wilson can call on superb instrumentalists for his orchestra.  No surprise then that Ruth Rogers (Aquinas Piano Trio) and Ciaran McCabe (Cavaleri String Quartet) were sitting next to each other in the violin section in the Bernstein Prom from the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 5 September 2015.

Beyond Ciaran was Hannah Dawson (Sacconi Quartet) and in the front row was Magnus Johnston (Navarra String Quartet).  Also spotted among the cellists were Rowena Calvert (formerly of the Cavaleri String Quartet) and two members of the Britten Sinfonia.

The concert can still be downloaded or viewed on the BBC iPlayer.  The John Wilson Orchestra returns to Snape Maltings on Friday 18 December 2015: details from Aldeburgh Music.
