Orchestra Musica Romantica debut
Hammann describes the orchestra as being a mixture of experience and youth. It is made up of musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Academy of St. Martin's in the Fields and regular extras from the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Added to these professionals will be a selection of talented students from London's music colleges.
As well as playing with the LSO, Hammann has conducted orchestras such as the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra and the Reutlinger Philharmonic Orchestra. His experience is with both symphonic and period instrument performance, so it will be interesting to see quite what style of performance he develops with his new orchestra.
Their December concert is in aid of ACTION Medical Research, which for 60 years has funded medical research worldwide for pregnancies, infants and young children.
