A programme featuring some of the greatest ever German composers: the last of Bach’s iconic Brandenburg Concertos meets Brahms’ sunny and gentle Serenade, plus all of the best melodies from Richard Strauss’ Der Rosenkavelier.
Billed by the Bach Society of the Netherlands as ‘The Revenge of the Violas’, Bach‘s final Brandenburg concerto eschews tradition by placing the viola (Bach’s own instrument of choice) centre stage. Two viola players take the starring roles, supported by two ‘viola de gamba’s (in this concert, cellos), solo cello and continuo. Brahms’ Serenade in A Major is an early work with warm and gracious melodies. Forays into roaming harmonies and intricate cross rhythms foretell the thumbprints of Brahms’ mature style to come. Strauss’ comic opera, Der Rosenkavelier, with its numerous waltzes, glamorous Viennese setting and of course, a Baron, is notable for its great melodies. Hear them all in this new arrangement for symphonic wind by Nigel Shore!
Tickets are available from Ticketsource (www.ticketsource.co.uk/st-cecilia), from Harrogate Theatre and the Little Ripon Bookshop, or on the door.
