Suk Fairy Tale

Dvořák 2 Slavonic Dances (Op 72 nos 2 & 7)

Smetana Dances (Bartered Bride)

Some familiar and less familiar Czech music in this evening’s concert, featuring Smetana’s well loved Vltava and his lively dances from the Bartered Bride plus Dvořák’s ever popular Slavonic Dances. Less well known is Joseph Suk who married Dvořák’s daughter; his Fairy Tale must rank amongst the most unjustly neglected pieces of all time, containing some truly haunting and memorable music.

Grieg Two Nordic Melodies

Grieg Holberg Suite

    Beethoven Cavatina (Quartet op 130)

Britten Simple Symphony

The Nordic first part of this concert presents familiar and well loved works by Grieg. Ending with Britten’s youthful Simple Symphony and Beethoven’s Cavatina, one of his most profound movements, a foretaste of 2020’s Beethoven celebrations. Beethoven reportedly said he was in tears as he wrote this work!

Berlioz Overture Les Francs Juges

Lalo Piano Concerto 

Saint-Saëns Symphony No 3 "Organ"

Piano Soloist Haruko Seki

An all French programme ending with Saint-Saëns tumultuous Organ Symphony, marking the orchestra’s return to Boston Stump after recent renovation work. Lalo’s Piano Concerto may at first seem unfamiliar but was used as the music for the movie “Lawrence of Arabia” and so will be familiar to most. We welcome to Boston the Japanese pianist Haruko Seki, who appears with the orchestra for the first time in this wonderful French concerto.
