Benedict Kloeckner Performs with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for the Howard Blake Concert in Cadogan Hall on Thursday 7th September
In London on Thursday 7th September, Benedict Kloeckner plays once again with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for the Howard Blake concert organized by the Cadogan Hall to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Lady Diana’s death. Howard Blake will conduct his works himself.
This is not the first time the Made in France cellist is collaborating with the British composer, Blake’s Cello Sonata being composed for Kloeckner. He regularly works with contemporary composers such as Eric Tanguy and Wolfgang Rihm. Considered one of the most promising German cellists, Benedict Kloeckner is internationally recognized for his technical control and intonation. He regularly performs on prestigious stages around the world (Carnegie Hall, Berlin Philharmonic Hall, the Musikverein Wien).
While he has performed before at the Cadogan Hall and at the Barbican Centre, this is Kloeckner’s first performance of an entirely British programme.
