An orchestra will take to the stage for the first time since 2019 next weekend to showcase two Mozart masterpieces.

On Saturday, July 23, the Mozart Orchestra will perform at Bungay's St Mary's Church.

The "summery programme" combines two much-loved masterpieces by Mozart, including Symphony No. 40, with French romantic repertoire from Faure and Saint-Saens, as well as music by Swedish composer Lars-Erik Larsson.

The orchestra is conducted by Tadeusz Kaznowski while the soloist in the Saint-Saens Cello Concerto is Leo de Flammineis, who started cello and piano lessons at the age of 5 and is hailed as "an exciting young player with enormous promise".
