Final Gala Concert

Royal Northern Sinfonia

Bradley Creswick director

Julian Bliss clarinet

Amy Harman bassoon

 

Purcell (arr. Britten) Chacony

Finzi Clarinet Concerto

Roxanna Panufnik Cantator and Amanda                        World Premiere

Haydn Oxford Symphony no. 92 in G

 

The poignant strains of Purcell’s great Chacony introduces two works featuring wind soloists. Finzi’s Clarinet Concerto marries baroque influences, folk-inspired melody and Elgarian echoes. Roxanna Panufnik chose a bassoon for a piece inspired by an old Rye legend of doomed love between a monk and a local girl, heard here in the world premiere of a new orchestral version. The concert culminates with a lively, lyrical symphony Haydn presented in honour of the city of Oxford.

 

Pre-concert and interval bar

Concert-goers are invited to picnic in the grounds of Hovingham Hall before the concert from 5.30pm.
