Beethoven and Rutter at St Peter Mancroft Church

St Peter Mancroft Church full of the delights
of Beethoven and Rutter
On Saturday 12th February 2011 Norwich Music Group presented a performance of John Rutter's Requiem and Beethoven's Piano Concerto No 4 at St Peter Mancroft church in Norwich. The evening was in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Conductor for the evening was Philip Aldred. While Rebecca Chambers and Sonia Waters were the soloists for this delightful night of Classical Music.

I must say that I really enjoyed the evening. Concerto No 4 is full of surprises with the announcement of the main theme by the soloist rather then the orchestra giving it a progression from Beethoven's earlier concertos'.

The second half of the evening was a performance of John Rutter's Requiem that was of the highest quality and well received by the audience. I would highly recommend an evening of Classical Music in one of Norwich's historical churches. They perfectly compliment each other.
