Romantic Strings – Stafford

Date: Thursday 03rd November 2011 19:30

Venue: Gatehouse Theatre, Stafford

Giovanni Guzzo director

A chance to hear Manchester Camerata’s dynamic young leader, Giovanni Guzzo, directing a programme of Romantic string music. The concert includes Mendelssohn’s melodic and masterful String Symphony no.10, unbelievably the work of a barely teenage composer, and his lesser known 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.
