Timothy Orpen soloist with the Royal Northern Sinfonia for live Radio 3 broadcast

Timothy Orpen, Principal Clarinet of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and a founder member and Principal Clarinet of Aurora Orchestra, spent three years as Principal Clarinet of the Royal Northern Sinfonia prior to joining the ROH. He is delighted to return to the Sage to perform Finzi’s Clarinet Concerto with the RNS. The concert will be broadcast live by BBC Radio 3.

One of the best loved works in the clarinet repertoire by audiences and musicians alike, Finzi’s concerto balances zestful energy with mellow autumnal repose.

A previous overall winner of the Royal Over-Seas League, Timothy has been described as a ‘blazing talent’ by The Times and as ‘one of the best young British musicians today’ by The Telegraph.

His concerto highlights include the Mozart Clarinet Concerto at the Royal Albert Hall with Sir David Willcocks and concerto performances with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Aurora Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Northern Sinfonia.

The complete programme for Wed 1st March at 7.30pm:

Elgar Introduction And Allegro
Finzi Clarinet Concerto
Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending
Tippett Divertimento On Sellinger’s Round
Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis
