Conductor        Paul Hilliam

Violin                Freya Goldmark


Programme


Lutoslawski        Little Suite

Bruch                Violin Concerto

Sibelius        Symphony No.1


The first concert in the Rutland Sinfonia’s 42nd season is a short piece by a composer new to the Orchestra. Lutoslawski’s ‘Little Suite’ is only 11 minutes long, but its rhythmic drive and strong folk-based thematic material will leave you wanting to hear more from Poland’s outstanding 20th century composer.


We then welcome back Freya Goldmark to play Bruch’s popular Violin Concerto, dating from 1866.


The concert ends with Sibelius’ First Symphony, completed in 1900. An 1897 performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.6 ‘Pathetique’ in Helsinki had an influence on Sibelius, but the mature Sibelius is already powerfully evident in this early work. "His symphony, a work full of unrestrained strength, full of passionate vivacity and astonishing audacity is – to state the matter plainly – a remarkable work, one that steps out on new paths, or rather rushes forward like an intoxicated god," wrote Ferdinand Pfol, the famous German music critic, on hearing it.

Conductor        Paul Hilliam

Violin                Diego Vassallo


Programme


Borodin        Overture - 'Prince Igor'

Brahms        Violin Concerto

Tchaikovsky        Symphony No.2 'Little Russian'


Diego Vassallo is the second soloist we are looking forward to working with again, this time in the Violin Concerto by Brahms, written in 1878 and dedicated to his friend the violinist Joseph Joachim. Born in Birmingham in 1993, Diego Vassallo began to play music aged 7. He frequently plays in many chamber music and orchestral ensembles, and as a soloist he has performed in several cities in both Argentina and the UK.


Folk-inspired music features in Tchaikovsky’s Second Symphony known as the ‘Little Russian’, which was well received at its first performance and has been popular ever since.


Our first Oundle concert of the season gets off to a rousing start with Borodin’s Overture ‘Prince Igor’.

Conductor        Paul Hilliam

Piano                Anne Bolt


Programme


Mozart                Piano Concerto No.20 in D minor, K466

Mahler                Symphony No.5


The Rutland Sinfonia returns to Oundle in May to perform Mahler’s mighty Fifth Symphony - you may well have heard our performance of Mahler’s First Symphony in Oundle two seasons ago. Like a number of other fifth symphonies by well known composers such as Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich, Mahler's Fifth Symphony moves from dark tragedy in minor keys at the start to blazing triumph in major keys in its closing bars. In this symphony Mahler explores emotional extremes starting with a first movement Funeral March, but the most famous movement is the Adagietto for harp and strings.

Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.20 in D minor starts this concert, with Anne Bolt joining us again as soloist. The concerto was first performed in 1785 with Mozart himself as the soloist.


Anne Bolt was born in Leicestershire and returned to her home area in 2001, having studied at the University of Oxford, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Indiana University in America. She  is now Head of Piano at Oakham School.


A retiring collection will be taken for 'Shine'.
