Concerto delights and Beethoven’s Eighth

Sponsored by:

Beethoven’s Triple Concerto is one of the most charming concertos ever composed, and famous for its wonderfully written cello part! We warmly welcome back Aleksei Kiseliov, who performed with and within Orpheus for many years. Aleksei will be joined by Anthony Hewitt and Benjamin Baker, the runner up of the Orpheus Musician of the Year competition and recent winner of the Windsor Festival International String Competition.

Ligeti's Romanian Concerto for Orchestra opens the concert, a rustic joyous piece, full of energy and drive, a great celebration of folk music. After the interval, we perform the Eighth Symphony, referred to by Beethoven as "my little symphony in F" – a delightful and spirited work, looking back as if to say “thank you Haydn”, his teacher for so many years. We greatly look forward to welcoming back Toby Purser, our resident guest conductor. Come and celebrate spring with us with these uplifting and delightful pieces!
