Robin Browning’s guest conducting schedule has taken him all over the world, including to the Boise Philharmonic in the US, St Petersburg Festival Orchestra and Estonian National Youth Orchestra, as well as tours throughout europe. Closer to home, in recent seasons he has made debuts with Milton Keynes City Orchestra, New Bristol Sinfonia, Ernest Read Symphony Orchestra in London and, in the summer of 2016, Oxford University Orchestra.
His performance of Bruckner and Debussy with OUO in Oxford’s famous Sheldonian Theatre was greeted with great acclaim, and resulted in an immediate re-invitation to the orchestra. Consisting of some of the country’s most gifted young players – many of them recent members of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain – OUO prides itself on impeccable musical standards, attracting conductors and other guest artists of great renown.
At first glance a slightly unusual combination – Debussy’s La Mer with Bruckner’s monumental 7th Symphony – the programme offered ample opportunity for Robin to draw colour and large spans of sound from these committed young players.
Details of a complete review of the performance is available on the News page of this site.
