Rachmaninov with Nottingham Symphony Orchestra

Simon Callaghan

On Saturday 8th July, Steinway artist Simon Callaghan joins Nottingham Symphony Orchestra – “arguably the premier amateur orchestra in Britain” according to the Sunday Telegraph Magazine – and their conductor Derek Williams in Rachmaninov’s much loved Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini.

Simon performs internationally as a soloist and chamber musician.  His recent tours have taken him to Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and on two occasions to the Banff Centre in Canada. He has performed at all of the UK’s major concert halls including Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and St David’s Hall Cardiff. 2017 will take Simon throughout the UK and to Italy, Holland and Switzerland.

In 2017 Simon will release his debut concerto CD for Hyperion’s lauded Romantic Piano Concerto series: the first recordings of Roger Sacheverell Coke’s Concerti with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Martyn Brabbins. His world premiere recording of Paul Patterson’s ‘Allusions’ for two violins and piano (with Midori Komachi and Sophie Rosa) will also be released this year.

In addition to his performing schedule, Simon puts great value on teaching and this season will give masterclasses, lead a course at Benslow Music and continue his work as Head of Piano at the Ingenium Academy (Winchester).  Simon is also Director of Music at Conway Hall, where he oversees the longest-running chamber music series in Europe.

The complete programme for Saturday 8th July at 7.30pm is:

Rachmaninov Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances
Shostakovich Jazz Suite No.2
