|Thursday 2nd October||Sibelius – Oceanides
Mozart – Piano Concerto K271
Wigglesworth – Augenlieder
Debussy – La mer
|A really varied programme from the attractive and accessible Mozart Piano Concerto, through Debussy’s impressionist masterpiece to a glittering work by contemporary composer Ryan Wigglesworth
|Thursday 4th December||Britten – Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings
MacMillan – St Luke Passion
|The UK premiere of the British composer James MacMillan’s St Luke Passion. MacMillan’s music is by turns haunting, dramatic and magical, so this setting of the Easter story should be a real treat. Britten’s Serenade is an reflective and beautiful twentieth century classic.
|Thursday 22nd January||Ravel – Rapsodie Espagnole
Falla – El amor brujo
Falla – Nights in the Gardens of Spain
Ravel – Bolero
|A colourful programme of music inspired by Spain, ending with Ravel’s famous Bolero. Taking the baton is Spanish conductor Josep Pons, who should lend an authentic flavour to the orchestra’s playing.
|Wednesday 11th February||Shostakovich – Symphony No. 11 (including introductory talk)||150211 Letter|
|Shostakovich’s Eleventh Symphony is one of his most accessible, depicting scenes from the Russian revolution in a dramatic, almost filmic way. The music moves between cold menace, brutal drama and lament, and was an immediate success both in the USSR and abroad.
|Thursday 26th February||Berg – Three Pieces for Orchestra
Mahler – Symphony No. 6
|Mahler’s epic Sixth Symphony is full of dramatic contrast, ending with a brutally tragic fff. Berg’s Three Pieces is much lighter in tone, but no less colourful, ranging from grotesque parody to the extreme chaos of parts of the last movement.
