Bassoon concerto premiere.

ALAN Pendlebury, the RLPO's principal bassoon, describes his instrument as the 'Cinderella' of the orchestra, and wants to urge more youngsters to take up playing it.

Chief conductor Vasily Petrenko is on the box for the concert which also includes Grieg's Symphonic Dances and Sibelius's Fifth Symphony.

Meanwhile Gary is centre of attention the week after when the RLPO's contemporary wing Ensemble 10/10 celebrates his 60th birthday. See the ECHO arts page on November 14 for a full interview. ? Gary Carpenter's Bassoon Concerto is part of the Nordic Landscapes concert on November 10. pounds 13-pounds 36 on 0151-709 3789.
