Iona Brown & The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra - Grieg, Tippett, Beethoven_Booklet
The late great Iona Brown devoted a vast proportion of her life to conducting the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, where she also provided solo violin for the better part. When she returned with the NCO for this seminal concert in Naim's classical recorded history, whilst on a European tour, tragedy struck. Despite loosing her mother, Iona Brown bravely attended rehearsal sessions and conducted one of the most heartfelt performances of her illustrious career. This was Brown's homecoming show in the vast ecclesiastical acoustics of Salisbury Cathedral playing a fantastic mixed programme of NCO's romantic favourites.
