Thursday 25 June 7.30pm
Prokofiev Symphony No 1, ‘Classical’
Haydn Trumpet Concerto in Eb
Mozart Symphony No 40 in G minor K550
Director and Leader David Adams
See the WNO Orchestra up close and very personal in
the intimacy of the Dora Stoutzker Hall as they play popular and
sparkling music both from, and inspired by,
the Classical period.
With David Adams at the helm, they play this evening as an intimate
Chamber Orchestra with no conductor in the truest sense of the
word; leading to an intense level of collaboration between the
artists themselves, and between the artists and audience.
Prokofiev’s playful, upbeat symphony fondly pays tribute to Haydn
and Mozart; they in turn provide the rest of the programme. Haydn’s
Trumpet Concerto, with WNO Principal Trumpet Dean Wright, is
cheerful and soulful at the same time. It is followed by one of the
best loved symphonies in the entire period of Classical music.
Venue: Dora Stoutzker Hall
