Brandenburg Sinfonia

Friday 21 June, 8pm
Robert Porter – conductor


W A Mozart: Symphony No 24 K182 in B flat 1773; W A Mozart: Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola K364 in E flat 1779; George Gershwin: Lullaby 1924; Peter Warlock: Capriol Suite 1926; Piotr Tchaikovsky: Serenade Op 48 1881


Our resident orchestra, Brandenburg Sinfonia, opens our 2019 Festival with early Mozart: a symphony written just before he left Salzburg to strike out on his own in Vienna, and the Sinfonia Concertante which was inspired by his tour of Europe in 1779. Tchaikovsky’s Serenade was inspired by Mozart’s Serenades, and is a firm Festival favourite. Gershwin’s Lullaby was originally written for piano in 1919, while Warlock’s Capriol Suite is a set of six 16th century dances for strings. In association with Orchestras Live.
