Tianyou Ma and Maxim Calver perform Brahms Double with The Doctors’ Orchestra at Cadogan Hall in aid of Freedom from Torture

Tianyou Ma, winner of the Senior 4th Prize at the Menuhin Competition Geneva 2018, will be performing Brahms’ magesterial Double Concerto with Maxim Calver, winner of the String category of 2018’s BBC Young Musician who also performed the fundamental continuo with The Yehudi Menuhin School Orchestra during the London 2016 Junior Finals, at Cadogan Hall on 11th March 2019 with The Doctors’ Orchestra under the direction of Stephen Brearley in aid of Freedom from Torture.

This will be the 10th concert that The Doctors’ Orchestra has given in aid of Freedom from Torture, a charity which provides a vital lifeline for survivors of torture. Brahms’ Double Concerto, performed by Tianyou, Max and The Doctors’ Orchestra, will be preceeded by the orchestra performing Berlioz’s rarely played but compelling concert overture King Lear and followed by Elgar’s magnificent First Symphony which, according to the composer, combines “a wide experience of human life with great love and a massive hope in the future.”

Tickets are available to be booked via Cadogan Hall’s website here.
