Lansky - The Mob's Money Man at QEH April 27th 2015

Emma is to play for the world premiere of Roland Perrin's "The Mob's Money Man" at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on Monday 27th April. Emma will be the only violinist playing in The Blue Planet Orchestra alongside a jazz singer, narrator and choir. This new work has been commissioned by the Crouch End Festival Chorus. In this vibrant concert drama, composer and jazz musician Roland Perrin spotlights the remarkable life of mobster Meyer Lansky – a key player in the criminal underworld who built an international gambling empire. Infused with Klezmer, New York and Cuban jazz styles, it is a vivid portrait of the ‘Mob’s Accountant’.

Emma is to lead the Docklands Sinfonia in "Rodeo" on Friday 13th March.

Docklands Sinfonia is delighted to welcome back to St Anne’s international cello virtuoso Leonard Elschenbroich for a performance of Prokofiev’s Sinfonia Concertante for cello and orchestra.

Since then, Leonard joined the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist scheme in 2012, a prestigious award offering performances and recordings with all the BBC orchestras and at the BBC Proms.

Previous performances by Leonard with Docklands Sinfonia have been hugely popular and tickets are expected to be in big demand. Docklands Sinfonia will also be continuing its strong track recording of promoting young British composers with the world premiere of ‘Lovely Roof’ by one of our oboe players, Jesse Bescoby.
