Listen to Bernardi Music Group:
'.....beautifully played by the Bernardi Orchestra' as commented on Channel 4 news by Jon Snow at the memorial of the late Sir John Mortimer, where we played our commission for and with the late Jon Lord formerly of Deep Purple.
The Bernardi Chamber Orchestra has toured Ireland twice to critical acclaim, together with recording at Glyndebourne and in several very high profile national commemorations. We have commissioned over twenty new works including the late Jon Lord's 'To Notice Such Things' which reached no.4 in the Classic FM charts. Our recent world premiere was generously commissioned by John Snelling and will formed part of our recreation of Benjamin Britten's world premiere of his St Nicolas at Lancing College on July 14th at 6.30 pm. James Whitbourn's 'Silent Voices' (Agnus Dei) was published by Chester Music and closeed the 2013 Shipley Arts Festival together with the Williamson Voices who travelled to perform with us from Princeton US. Subsequently Willamson's Voices from Princeton University and Bernardi Music Group are planning bi annual performances together, and we were delighted with James Whitbourn's 'Ada' premiered to celebrate the two hundredth birthday of computer pioneer Ada Lovelace who is also a direct ansestor of our Patron Lord Lytton.
We are very grateful to our loyal players, several of whom are principles of London Orchestras, and professors at London Conseravtoires.
