Date Posted:13/04/2018

MK City OrchestraGabriele Baldocci will perform the Chopin Concerto No.2 with Milton Keynes City Orchestra (MKCO), in a dance themed concert, on Friday 20th April, 7.30 pm at The Venue Walton High.

This concert will celebrate the rhythms and passion of dance music from the traditional formats of Chopin to the Russian traditional folk dance of the Kamarinskaya from Glinka, with a special celebration of the delightful ballet music of Mozart, closing with the Pulcinella Suite from Stravinsky. 

Yamaha has sponsored the concert piano that Gabriele will perform on and local Accountants Hillier Hopkins has sponsored Gabriele to play with the City’s own Orchestra under the baton of Gabriele’s great friend, Damian Iorio.

Gabriele Baldocci was born in Livorno, Italy and now lives in Milton Keynes. He is a concert pianist of international acclaim and a Professor of piano at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music in London.

Marian Livingstone, Chairman of MKCO said,” It is marvellous to have such a talented international pianist living right here in Milton Keynes. His long standing friendship with our Music Director Damian Iorio will add an extra touch of magic to the concert for our audience to enjoy. Friday night is music night 20th April in MK.”
