Ahead of their world debut concert tomorrow evening, Founder of the Orchestra Musica Romantica, Jörg Hammann and first violinist and fellow London Symphony Orchestra member, Tomo Keller appeared on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune yesterday. Jörg and Tomo spoke with Sean Rafferty about the project orchestra, which is made up of musicians from London’s leading orchestras, such as London Symphony, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Academy of St. Martin’s, and regular extras from the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and students from some of the best and reputable music colleges in London. The concert will raise funds and awareness for ACTION Medical Research, which has funded some of the best medical research for the past 60 years for pregnancies, infants and young children. Joined by Guildhall student, Misako Osada, Tomo Keller performed Dvorak’s 4 Romantic Pieces for violin and piano, Godowsky’s Triakontameron, along with works by Ravel and Gershwin.
