We are delighted to welcome principal horn of the BBC Philharmonic, Ben Hulme. Brought up in Manchester, studying at Chetham’s School of Music, Ben was on trial for the principal job whilst still a student at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He plays the first horn concerto by Richard Strauss, who wrote it for his father, principal horn of the Munich Court Orchestra on his 60th birthday.

Adrienne Spilsbury’s Eyebright (2019), inspired by visits to wildflower meadows in Cheshire, has beautifully atmospheric writing – very much in the great English string tradition. The concert opens with Johann Strauss II – one of his finest waltzes with his most substantial and impressive introduction. Mendelssohn’s exhilarating Italian symphony, which he composed for him, the mature age of 22, concludes this box of delights.

The Northern Chamber Orchestra is Orchestra in Association at The Stoller Hall. The members of the orchestra (approximately twenty five in total) are distinguished chamber musicians who regularly appear as soloists. The 2021-22 season features pianist Steven Osborne, oboist John Roberts, cellist (and NCO President) Raphael Wallfisch, violinist (and NCO Artist in Association) Chloë Hanslip, horn player Ben Hulme and guitarist Craig Ogden.
