  1. Danses concertantes, for chamber orchestra - Igor Stravinsky
  2. Concerto for jazz trumpet and orchestra - Steve Waterman
  3. Symphony No 2 in C minor, 'Little Russian' Op 17 - Pyotr Tchaikovsky

The Surrey Mozart Players show their versatility with this exciting concert. Performing the solo trumpet in a concerto which he composed himself, is jazz legend, Steve Waterman. Featuring three sections, a tango, a slow movement and a final Latin-inspired section with full orchestra accompaniment and jazz improvisation on the trumpet, this chance to experience the premiere performance of this new work is not to be missed. The concerto is complemented by Stravinsky’s energetic and rhythmic Danses concertantes and Tchaikovsky’s 2nd Symphony, known as the ‘Little Russian’ because of the Ukrainian folk melodies which form some of its themes.

Steve Waterman is undoubtedly one of Britain’s top jazz trumpet players. He began his career while studying at Trinity College of Music, playing with the European Community Jazz Orchestra and the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. Since then he has worked regularly on the British and European jazz scene. He has recorded many critically acclaimed CDs under his own name as well as a number of CDs under the ECM label with John Surman’s Brass Project and Carla Bley. Steve has won numerous BBC British jazz awards over the years and is very committed to jazz education. He is professor of Jazz Trumpet at Trinity College of Music and the Welsh College of Music and Drama.
