Richard Strauss: Till Eulenspiegel
Weber: Clarinet Concerto no. 2 with Timothy Orpen
In March we anticipate the arrival of Spring with a celebration of lively music, beginning with Richard Strauss’ Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks.
“Blazing talent” Timothy Orpen joins the orchestra for the much loved Weber’s Second Clarinet Concerto which dances along in the polonaise of the third movement to a brilliant conclusion.
The second half of the concert will be filled with Debussy’s Images - loosely based on forms of dance, the third of the three movements titled ‘Round Dances of Spring’.
Start time: 19:30
