Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra joins PMA

We are delighted that, following its successful concert in Plymouth Guildhall, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra has decided to become a member of the PMA and benefit from the promotion that we offer. On 24 March 2017 they performed Beethoven, Mozart (Clarinet Concerto) and Sibelius in the Guildhall with clarinettist and previous BBC Young Musician of the Year Emma Johnson.

PMA Member Organisations organise and stage most of the musical events in the Plymouth area, and all these are listed in the PMA Concert Diary and online in the Plymouth Classical Music Concert Diary website which includes the latest information on the Accord's and most other concerts in Plymouth and surrounding area. This site also provides a general resource for music-lovers, with links to music websites and organisations. See What's On This Month ..... Next Month.

The PMA also stages a limited number of its own concerts, mostly organised by Clive Jenkins or by Jeanie Moore.

At the Duke of Cornwall Hotel on Sunday 14th May, Jeanie Moore welcomed back violinist Peter Fisher, with cellist Peter Adams. The pair have often performed together in a trip with piano, but this was their first duo recital.

Their well-chosen programme began with Bach and progressed through Italian composers Anfossi and Giordani to Ludwig van Beethoven. More modern pieces included music for solo cello by Aaron Minsky, for solo violin by Peter Fisher's teacher Jaroslav Vanacek, and an arrangement for violin & cello by Norwegian Johan Halvorsen of a passacaglia by Handel

The audience greatly appreciated the musicianship and the introductions to each piece.
