Current Season

From Our Conductor Roy Stratford

Summer Concert

I make no excuses for a Beethoven evening. Our July concert contains his Leonora Overture No.3, a mini-symphonic poem in its own right complete with a ‘rescue scene’ and an electrifying coda; his Piano Concerto No.4, with pianist Evgenia Startseva; and his ‘Pastoral’ Symphony No.6, perhaps the first overtly programmatic symphonic work.
