Enigmatic Passion

Tchaikovsky’s Pathetique symphony portrays the full range of human emotions from hope through happiness to despair. Written just before he died, the true meaning of this most dramatic of symphonies remains an enigma. Popular young cellist Charlotte Miles returns to perform Elgar’s poignant cello concerto, written shortly before the death of his beloved wife Alice and his last major work. The concert opens with the dramatic overture to Verdi’s early opera Nabucco..

A Pastoral Afternoon

Beethoven’s famous depiction of the countryside in his Pastoral symphony concludes our tribute to his 250th birthday year. The pastoral theme continues with Mendelssohn’s famous nocturne from his incidental music to Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Italian composer Antonio Salieri was a teacher of many famous composers including Beethoven and Mozart and came to fame in Peter Schaffer’s play and film Amadeus. Although mainly a composer of opera, he also wrote this attractive concerto for flute and oboe, performed by Lauren Gorman and Brienne Gawler.

Soloists:  Lauren Gorman, Flute & Brienne Gawler, Oboe

Conductor : Willem van der Vis
