Leading cellist Julian Lloyd Webber will be joined by pianist John Lenehan, for an evening recital to launch Gloucester Music Society’s 83rd season.

Classical music lovers, grab your diary and mark down the date; world famous cellist Julian Lloyd Webber will be visiting Gloucester on Thursday 20 September 2012 for an evening recital, joined by acclaimed pianist John Lenehan.

Launching the 83rd season of Gloucester Music Society concerts – which will collectively celebrate ‘A Pageant of English Music’ – organisers say this will be Julian’s first performance for the society since becoming its president in 2008.

Audiences can look forward to a concert of cello sonatas and other pieces by two distinguished English composers; Frederick Delius, whose 150th anniversary is being celebrated this year, and John Ireland, who died 50 years ago in 1962.

Plus, the programme also includes the cello sonata by Debussy, and music by both Bach and Fauré.

Gloucester Music Society was founded in 1929 to promote chamber music concerts of the highest quality, and its aim remains unchanged today. It takes pride in engaging some of the world’s finest musicians, while concerts have earned a reputation for being friendly and informal.

If this will be your first concert organised by the local charity, expect an impressive launch to the new season with superb acoustics in the beautiful and historic setting of St Mary de Lode.
