ENJOY some rarely performed music when a classically-trained musician takes to the stage later this month.
Ben Bringloe, 25, of Kirkbymoorside, will lead the recital at Helmsley Arts Centre, performing Gaubert’s Fantasie and a selection of work by Klezme for the clarinet and piano. The all-star cast also features Michael Weekes, performing the Vaughan Williams Tuba Concerto, and pianist Tim Brooks who has elected to play the Prelude, Menuet and Rigaudon from Ravel’s Tombeau do Couperin.
For Ben, who graduated with first class honours in classical and contemporary music from Leeds College of Music, the concert gives him a chance to showcase some hidden gems that may not be familiar with music lovers.
“I intend to throw in four to five short pieces so they can experience more of the clarinet’s repertoire,” he said. “Really, my main aim has always been to do things that I find particularly interesting and something that shows off the technique of the musicians and that audience may have never heard before. It has to be music I enjoy and really relate to so hopefully my performance comes across better.”
Ben, who is a member of Ryedale Wind Band and Kirkbymoorside Orchestra, will appear with his friends in the Clarinet, Tuba and Piano recital at Helmsley Arts Centre on Sunday February 17, at 3pm. Tickets available from the box office.
