The Dorking Concertgoers’ 2015-16 season brings professional classical music to Mole Valley.

The season opens with the wonderful Emma Johnson performing a varied programme for clarinet and piano. In November we welcome pianist Ivana Gavric, whose first disc won a BBC award in 2011 and who presents an attractive programme ranging over 200 years of piano music, from Schubert to Ravel, from Grieg to Janácek and Cheryl Frances-Hoad.

In January the Philharmonia Orchestra visit, with Michael Collins conducting as well as playing the clarinet in Mozart’s exquisite Clarinet Concerto.

Our Quartet Series on Sunday afternoons features the Heath String Quartet, with concerts including the three quartets of Tchaikovsky, complemented by quartets by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Ravel and Bartók.

The Orchestra of the Swan returns and presents an evening entitled ‘Arrivals & Departures’; Raphael Wallfisch plays Haydn’s lovely Cello Concerto in C, and there are works by Handel and Vivaldi. Guitarist Fiona Harrison provides the finale to the season with an arresting variety of pieces for solo guitar.
