Following its sell-out all-Beethoven concert last February, The Doctors’ Orchestra returns for another performance in support of the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture. Starting with Beethoven’s unjustly neglected Second Symphony, their programme also includes Blumine, a rarely heard Mahler gem.

The orchestra is joined by the young violin virtuoso Tamsin Waley-Cohen for a performance of Brahms’s violin concerto. Described by Ruggiero Ricci as “the most exceptionally gifted young violinist I have ever encountered”, Tamsin was the Royal College of Music’s String Player of the year, has won numerous prizes and has performed with many major orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Chamber Orchestra and the Orchestra of St John’s.

The Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture, a registered charity established in 1985, is the only organisation in the UK dedicated solely to the treatment of torture survivors. Since its inception, almost 50,000 people have been referred to it for help. The MF offers medical consultation, examination, forensic documentation of injuries, psychological treatment, support and practical help to torture victims. It needs to raise over £7 million a year in order to continue this work. All proceeds of this concert will go towards meeting that need.
