An exciting evening awaits us with the English Chamber Orchestra (ECO) ensemble and violinist Ofer Falk. Their programme includes Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor, one of the greatest violin concertos in the repertoire.
The ECO is one of the world’s leading chamber orchestras, having performed in more countries than any other orchestra and played with the world’s greatest musicians in its five decades of history. Over the years its soloists and conductors have included Vladimir Ashkenazy, Janet Baker, Daniel Barenboim, Benjamin Britten, Colin Davis, and many more. Since 1977 the ECO is delighted to have had as its Patron the Prince of Wales, now HM King Charles III, and the Orchestra has performed at many royal events for him and his family, including his 50th birthday Gala Concert.
In this concert the top string players of the ECO will be led by violinist Ofer Falk. Ofer frequently steps in as leader of the ECO and has been leader of the Schidlof and Allegri Quartets.
“…like drowning in honey”, Andrew Larkin on ECO's Dublin concert, January 2022
“Falk’s touch is as soft as silk. Few Quartets have such a sensitive and lyrical top line.” London Evening Standard
