The Dorking Concertgoers 2017-18 season brings some marvellous music to Mole Valley at the Dorking Halls.

We open with The Marylebone Trio playing a diverse selection of music for woodwind. In November the viola player Sarah-Jane Bradley and pianist John Lenehan present a lovely programme with works by Vaughan Williams, Rachmaninov and Brahms’, his beautiful first sonata.

The visit of the London Philharmonic Orchestra will brighten up January and they play Schubert’s ninth symphony, the ‘Great C major’; preceding this they will be joined by Chloë Hanslip in Brahms’ exuberant violin concerto.

The String Quartet Series sees the welcome return of the Sacconi String Quartet featuring works by the Czech composers Suk, Janácek and Dvorák, including his American quartet, as well as quartets by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Debussy; perhaps the most intriguing item will be Philip Glass’ second quartet, Company.

April sees a piano recital by the exciting Alexei Grynyuk, of whom Gramophone says “Grynyuk takes his place among the finest”. To end the season we are delighted to welcome the Yehudi Menuhin School Orchestra – full of exceptionally gifted players destined to become glittering stars as soloists or as members of ensembles.
