The Courtyard, in its 20th Anniversary year, is delighted to welcome Orchestra of the Swan as its resident orchestra.

Internationally renowned violinist Tai Murray will be serenading audiences alongside Orchestra of the Swan with music from Mozart and Mendelssohn at The Courtyard on Friday, November 2.

Conducted by Julian Lloyd Webber, this concert offers a wonderful opportunity to compare the relatively youthful and mature works of two of the most celebrated – but sadly, shortest-lived – musical prodigies.

Before the interval, the 30-year-old Mozart’s overture to the first of his great trio of operatic collaborations with Lorenzo Da Ponte followed by Mendelssohn’s glorious last major work and probably his most famous, performed by American violinist Tai Murray who made her concert debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra when she was only nine!

For the second half, one of the eight Sinfonias for Strings composed when Felix was just twelve (just one year away from his first violin concerto) and a symphony from precocious teenager Wolfgang – its first movement probably best known for launching Miloš Forman’s hit movie Amadeus.

Tai Murray plays Mendelssohn at The Courtyard on Friday, November 2 at 7.30pm. To book, call the box office on 01432 340555 or visit
