7th February, 2014 / 11.00am - 4.00pm
23rd January, 2014
Conducted by Andrew Sherwood and Ian Mitchell, the programme will include Grainger’s Lincolnshire Posyand Adam Gorb’s Awayday for Wind Ensemble, Constantin Silvestri’s Three pieces for Strings and Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No 1, performed by Trinity Laban pianist Kenneth O’Neil.
The wonderfully eccentric Lincolnshire Posy is a characteristically imaginative work, and as a bright overture there will be an arrangement by recent Trinity Laban composition student Andrew Gorman.
With a nod to Enescu, the challenging Three Pieces for Strings are in a characterful Romanian-folk style. Finally, Shostakovich’s Concerto takes the listener between giddy to serious, toying with the listener and somewhat thumbing its nose at tradition.
