Conductor Stephen Barlow and the Northern Chamber Orchestra explore pieces related to neurodegenerative disease.
John Adams’ Gnarly Buttons reflects his father’s struggle with Alzheimer’s as does Kevin Malone’s Last Memory. The two solo clarinettists both recently lost a parent to Parkinson’s. Strauss’s poignant Serenade From an Invalid’s Workshop speaks for itself.
The concert will raise awareness of these issues. Proceeds will go to the charity Parkinson’s UK.
