Friday 16th November Truro 3 Arts present Wihan String Quartet Mylor Theatre, Truro College 7.30pm £15 non-members, FREE for students and children if booked in advance. The Wihan Quartet, formed in 1985, are heirs to the great Czech musical tradition from which T3A has benefited greatly in recent years. They are frequent visitors to the UK and can often be heard on Radio 3 and at prestigious venues. The Quartet has won many international competitions including First Prize and the Audience Prize at the London String Quartet event. Their discography is outstanding and their landmark series of Beethoven’s Late Quartets for Nimbus was widely acclaimed – the Independent said: “Their performances are excellent; their fiery interpretations do full justice to Beethoven’s final masterpieces”. Their programme contains one of the Beethoven masterpieces as well as a modern work by Ronald Corp and the quintessential Czech classic – Dvořák’s “American” Quartet.
Best known as being Jools Holland’s guitarist with whom he has toured and recorded with for nearly 25 years, Mark Flanagan brings his own 4 piece band down to Cornwall for an exclusive gig at Truro College’s Helford Theatre. Mark plays Dobro and acoustic guitars and his songs have strong elements of blues, folk and country. With a hint of New Orleans, and an occasional nod to the early blues masters, it makes for an eclectic and entertaining experience. A rare treat, not to be missed, booking ahead essential.
Friday 5th October Truro 3 Arts presents Leslie Howard – piano Mylor Theatre, Truro College 7.30pm £15 non-members, FREE for students and children if booked in advance. For their opening concert Truro 3 Arts are privileged to welcome that great pianist and musician, Leslie Howard. Leslie was born in Australia but has lived in London since 1972. Leslie’s career has been outstanding and some will recall him giving the first recital on the Hall for Cornwall’s new Steinway piano in November 1997. The BBC Music Magazine declared “Howard is, by general consensus, the finest living exponent of Liszt”. The programme, after some Beethoven and Rachmaninov, includes some of Liszt’s exciting piano transcriptions of operatic music. There will be a buffet and art exhibition by Great Atlantic Galleries prior to tonight’s concert to celebrate the start of the concert season. Concert ticket holders only.
