A young talent at the legendary 1972 Leeds Piano Competition, Anda soon went on to win the Debussy Prize in Paris. Accepting a scholarship to study in the UK, Anda was outlawed by her native Romania until the iron curtain fell. More recently, with her superb London Schubert Players, she has promoted major trans-national cultural projects and received the Commander of the Order of Cultural Merit for services to Romanian music. Later this year Anda will record for Naxos the complete piano music of another great Anglo-Romanian musical figure, the acclaimed conductor Constantin Silvestri. Anda’s performances across the world have been consistently praised for their poetry, passion and imagination.
Your support for the concerts and events helps to keep St Botolph's standing.
One of Norfolk's finest churches, it is a uniquely beautiful building both for worship and music-making.
In 2005 the tower was secured from splitting.
In 2010 the chancel roof was repaired.
The historic 1808 Wm Gray organ was restored in 2011.
In 2014 winter cloakroom facilities were installed.
The concerts at St Botolph’s Church, Trunch, enter their 17th season this year. The quality of performances is now very high indeed, increasingly attracting audience from beyond the local vicinity.
All concert proceeds will continue to be donated to St Botolph’s Church restoration projects. The Church and community would like to thank both the audiences and the performers for their generosity. Since 1998 the concerts have raised over £20,000 towards these projects. Thanks too to the dynamic Trunch Village Society for its support for publicity.
Performers reserve the right to change their programmes from those indicated in the brochure or website. The organising team will take reasonable steps to give notice if any concert has to be postponed or cancelled. Please check this website for up to date information closer to the dates of the concert.
