Brett Baker

 

Brett Baker is to lead a Concerto Masterclass as part of the 2015 Cornwall Music Festival.

Potential

For the past 34 years the event has organised a series of concerto masterclasses run in close association with the Radford Trust, whose aim is to advance musical education and to help young Cornish musicians realise their potential.

Opportunity

Jane Fletcher, Chairman Cornwall Music Festival, told 4BR: “One of the purposes of the Concerto Masterclass has been to give the participants the opportunity to develop their repertoire and to enhance their musical experience by working with an orchestra or chamber group.”

Brett will be working on the Rimsky-Korsakov ‘Trombone Concerto’ (1st & 2nd movements).
