Dorking Concertgoers Society  Registered charity number 295839.


Welcome to the Dorking Concertgoers’ 2013-14
season which once again brings professional
classical music to Mole Valley. This season two
orchestras perform for us: in November the English
Chamber Orchestra visit with the BBC Young
Musician of the Year of 2012, the cellist Laura van
der Heijden playing Saint-Saëns; Mendelssohn,
Beethoven and Wagner – his lovely
Siegfried Idyll
complete the programme. In January the London
Philharmonic Orchestra, with the exciting
conductor Damian Iorio, play Tchaikovsky’s brilliant
first symphony and Dvorák’s tuneful violin
concerto. The season opens with an imaginative
recital by pianist Alan Brown, well-known to
Dorking audiences. The Navarra String Quartet visit
three times with works by Mozart, Haydn,
Beethoven, Schubert, Borodin – his beautiful
second quartet – and Dvorák. Clarinettist Kimon
Parry’s thoughtful recital includes Gerald Finzi’s
enchanting Five Bagatelles. The season is rounded
off by an enticing concert from the Jenkinson Frith
cello and piano duo.
