Rachmaninoff And Mozart
June 15 - June 16
The Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 1 gets a well-deserved encore. Richard Woodhams, principal oboe from 1977 until his retirement at the end of the 2017-18 season, returns for this encore collaboration with his principal colleagues in this charming work for a quartet of winds and orchestra.
Anna Clyne’s Masquerade was premiered at the Last Night of the Proms in 2013 and “draws its inspiration from the original mid-18th century promenade concerts held in London’s pleasure gardens” according to the composer. This richly-orchestrated work includes an old English country dance melody and a drinking song to add a festive flair to this program.FOLLOW US on Social Media:
