Wagner Siegfried Idyll
Finzi Clarinet Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No. 3 "Eroica"

Conductor: Daniel Hill
Clarinet: Alice Gledhill

The intimate opener of Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, was written to wake his wife on her birthday. Alice Gledhill, playing Finzi's Clarinet Concerto, is one of the most talented and promising young musicians around. The concert concludes with Beethoven's Eroica Symphony, both triumphant and melancholic, performed with the raw energy and excitement that it demands, in a venue where every detail can be heard.

Alice regularly plays clarinet and saxophone in the West End production of Les Miserables, played for the Trevor Nunn production of Porgy and Bess at the Savoy Theatre, London and has performed with the Showbiz Pops Orchestra and the London Metropolitan Orchestra, the session orchestra whose recent recordings include the film Stardust. She appeared as the solo clarinettist on the BBC4 documentary, Scouting for Boys presented by Ian Hislop.
