A violinist described by The Times as one “who held us rapt in daring and undaunted performances” will be performing in Lincolnshire in May. Tamsin Waley-Cohen (also described by The Guardian as a performer of “fearless intensity”) will be performing in Doddington Hall’s Long Gallery on Sunday 15 May 2016. The evening - simply entitled ‘Music at Doddington’- forms part of the Elizabethan family home’s summer calendar of culture alongside June performances by The Globe on Tour and the return of its biennial summer sculpture exhibition from August. ‘Music at Doddington’ will be directed by Artistic Director Graham Oppenheimer. Miss Waley-Cohen will be playing her 1721 ex-Fenyves Stradivarius violin and leading Vivaldi’s masterpiece, The Four Seasons. She will also be then leading Mendelssohn’s Octet, two of the major masterpieces from the string repertoire. Tamsin Waley-Cohen has performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra and Orchestra of the Swan as well as others from around the world (Budapest Philharmonic, Graz Kammerphilharmonie and Chapelle Musicale de Tournai). Her solo performances have taken her across Europe, New Zealand, and the USA. She is also a recording artist. “We are delighted to welcome Tamsin to Doddington Hall,” commented Claire Birch, who runs her family’s estate alongside husband James. “The Long Gallery has always been a special and atmospheric place to host musical events and has wonderful accoustics. It will be incredible to hear it full of music created by such a talented musician on an instrument nearly 300 years old.” ‘Music at Doddington’ is on Sunday 15 May (5pm) at Doddington Hall, near Lincoln.
