Leonard Salzedo Celebration Concert

Conway Hall, Main Hall, WC1R 4RL, [Venue Details]

This concert will take you on a trip from the Open University via a Lotus Eater and a Tango to the Sephardic Jews of 15th Century Spain.

Leonard Salzedo, born on 24 September 1921, was a prolific composer who drew on his experience as an orchestral player and conductor and his Spanish/Jewish ancestry

The Divertimento for Three Trumpets and Three Trombones which opens the concert was the Open University theme for many years. Brass was a favourite medium and the Fine Arts Brass Ensemble will also play a work written specially for them.

The Viola Concerto was written for Richard Crabtree, professor at Trinity Laban, and premiered at the Helmsley Festival in 1983. Richard will play it tonight, accompanied by Trinity Laban students, and conducted by Maestro Leslie Howard, a close friend of Salzedo’s.
