Romantic Strings – Colne

Date: Sunday 06th November 2011 14:30

Venue: The Muni Theatre, Colne

Giovanni Guzzo – Director

A chance to hear Manchester Camerata’s dynamic young leader Giovanni Guzzo direct a programme of Romantic string music, including Mendelssohn’s melodic and masterful String Symphony No.10, unbelievably the work of a barely teenage composer, and his lesser know D minor Violin Concerto, resurrected from obscurity by the young Yehudi Menuhin. Sibelius’ wistful and intimate homage to love, his Rakastava, and Schubert’s famous Death and the Maiden String Quartet, in an arrangement by Gustav Mahler for string orchestra, complete the programme.

If you like…Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream music, you’ll love this!
