Orchestra to present Classical Gems
CROSBY Symphony Orchestra is to present a programme of Classical Gems at St Faith’s Church this Sunday (February 5) at 7.30pm.
Included are works by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms spanning the whole classical period in music.
The soloists for the Mozart Sinfonia Concertante for Wind are drawn from players that regularly play with the Orchestra, and are William Kiggins, Oboe, Jacqueline Thomas, Clarinet, Chris Pople, Horn and recently retired from RLPO Alan Pendlebury, Bassoon.
The concert will conclude with the popular Symphony 104 by Haydn, the last he composed, written in London in 1795.
Conducting at this concert is Richard Adamson, a music graduate of Cambridge who completed post graduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music in 2007. He has directed the orchestra with great success a number of times during the last few years notably in last year’s performance of Berlioz’s Fantastic Symphony.
The complete programme on Sunday is: Beethoven: Egmont Overture; Mozart: Sinfonia Concertante for Wind; Brahms: Variations on a Theme by Haydn (St Anthony Variations) and Haydn: Symphony No. 104 (London).
Tickets are available in advance at Pritchard's Bookshop in Crosby and Harmonics on Crosby Road North, and can also be bought from members of the Orchestra.
