Festival Details - "Live online: Bradley Creswick and friends - Vivaldi's Four Seasons"...

Bradley Creswick and friends present Vivaldi’s Four Seasons op 8 and the overture from the opera Rosina by North East composer William Shield.

Bradley Creswick has recently been made Leader Emeritus of Royal Northern Sinfonia and began his long relationship them in 1984. The musical life then, as now, was amazingly rich and varied, providing personal highlights such as the EMI recording of Vaughan Williams’s ‘The Lark Ascending’ and Concerto Accademico with Richard Hickox, performing Prokofiev’s Concerto No 2 for Radio 3 and recording all the Handel Op 6 Concerti grossi with George Malcolm. More recent recordings include: Handel Concerti grossi Op 3 for Naxos, co directing six Mozart piano concertos with Imogen Cooper,' Venus Blazing' by Deirdre Gribbin with RTE and the Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola by Mozart with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra.
In 1987 Bradley moved to London to lead the Philharmonia, still maintaining his relationship with the Sinfonia, making guest appearances, notably as soloist with them in the 1989 BBC Proms playing ‘The Lark Ascending’. The London years continued as leader of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House before taking the opportunity, in 1994, to return to the Sinfonia and the North East for a second time. Bradley has twice taken part in the Marlboro Music Festival in America and is asked regularly to guest lead a wide range of orchestras. Playing with friends is a vibrant part of life and he relishes the chance to play and give recitals around the country; and has occasionally been heard playing western swing fiddle ‘back home’.

Bradley is Patron over The Children’s Foundation, which exists to support the ups and downs of childhood by Making Serious Stuff Fun.. Our overall aim; that North East children and young people are happy and healthy. That they feel loved, respected, are given a voice & are heard. Their response to covid, lockdown and weekend hunger in local communities was to deliver ‘Food and Fun Packs‘ containing a nutritious family meal, crafts, games, toys and family activities. Feedback has been inspirational and humbling in equal measure.
