Weber Oberon Overture
Saint-Saens Cello Concerto No.1
Tchaikovsky Pezzo capriccioso
Maja Bogdanovic- cello
Schuman Symphony no.1 “Spring”

A springtime celebration of the best of musical Romanticism. French-Serbian cello virtuoso Maja Bogdanovic is winning worldwide plaudits as one of today’s most exciting and compelling young stars, and she makes her debut with Saint-Saens’ evergreen Cello Concerto in A minor and a performance of Tchaikovsky’s stunningly virtuosic Pezzo Capriccioso- a work few cellists dare to attempt.

The concert opens with Weber’s Oberon Overture, an effervescent evocation of the world of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. Our season concludes with a performance of Schumann’s uniquely life-affirming Spring Symphony conducted by one of today’s leading Schumann interpreters, Kenneth Woods.

Tickets £13.50 – £33.50 (booking charges may apply)

“Hats off to the indefatigable Kenneth Woods…bringing to Schumann’s comparably sparkling and life-enhancing ‘Spring’ Symphony such boundless vitality, scrupulous fidelity to the printed score, delicious wit and (above all) entrancing freshness of new discovery.” Andrew Achenbach, Classical Ear
