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'.
