BERLIOZ Le carnaval romain
MOZART Sinfonia Concertante for Wind Soloists
--interval--
SYMPHONY TBC

Enjoy idyllic countryside scenery and glittering melodies as our Principal Conductor makes a welcome return to Bedford.

While some scholars argue whether Mozart wrote the Sinfonia Concertante, what none debate is the extraordinary beauty of the piece. Delicate, spirited and featuring arguably the most accomplished music for wind instruments written in the 18th century, this is a chance to hear the formidable skill of the Philharmonia's wind section principals as they take centre stage under the baton of Esa-Pekka Salonen.

The last symphony Schumann wrote, the Rhenish was inspired by a happy holiday with his composer wife Clara. The second movement evokes the broad, peacefully flowing river, the fourth, with its sombre brass chorales, tells of a ceremony the couple witnessed in Cologne Cathedral, and the work ends in celebratory mood.
