Solo star plays Mozart
MOZART’S ever-popular Horn Concerto No 4 in E flat is on the programme for Salisbury Symphony Orchestra’s next concert.
Soloist is Richard Berry, pictured, a player well-known to audiences not only in the south of England but further afield.
While still studying at the Royal Academy of Music, he was appointed principal horn with Bournemouth Sinfonietta, then with the English Chamber Orchestra, and chamber groups including London Winds and London Brass.
He has many other credits to his name including performing on more than 100 film soundtracks, among them the Harry Potter and James Bond films.
Berry frequently features on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM and abroad and has made a number of recordings.
The SSO concert opens with Bizet’s L’Arlésienne Suite No 1.
The orchestra, conducted by David Halls, is led by Rosamund Bromley, who plays an 18th century violin made by the outstanding Salisbury instrument maker, Benjamin Banks.
