JAMES GILBERT is currently completing advanced studies with Mark Van de Wiel, Christopher Richards and Laurent Ben-Slimane as a scholar at the Royal Academy of Music. He was a leading member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain for three years where he played under distinguished conductors such as John Wilson, François Xavier Roth and Sir Mark Elder in world-class venues such as the Barbican, the Royal Festival Hall, the Konzerthaus in Berlin, and the Royal Albert Hall for the BBC Proms. James now enjoys playing in a variety of settings from solo to chamber to orchestral playing. He is on the extra lists for the Philharmonia Orchestra, London Chamber Orchestra, London Sinfonietta and the BBC Concert Orchestra. Professionally he has played under distinguished conductors such as Esa-Pekka Salonen, Vladimir Ashkenazy and Sir Karl Jenkins.

 

Besides  Weber's sparkling Second Clarinet concerto, the programme also contains two other spectacular pieces.

There were four films released in 1942 with music by William Walton. These helped establish him as a major figure in English music and British film music. The popularity of the music in The First of the Few was such that a recording was made in the same year of the 'Spitfire Prelude and Fugue' with the composer conducting.

 

In the First Symphony by Dimitri Shostakovich we encounter a young artist proudly, exuberantly, even cockily giving free rein to his imagination's wild but purposeful impulses. This is a terrific work for any orchestra to gets its teeth into!
