Classical to the core, with music by Schubert, a Mozart horn concerto and the spirited Linz symphony.

Our Principal Horn, Ben Jacks, is the star in one of Mozart's exhilarating horn concertos. Composed for one of Mozart's good friends and a 'rare virtuoso' of his day, this is music that shows off the horn as an instrument capable of great nobility as well as rousing brilliance. The concerto is framed by a Mozart-inspired overture from Schubert and Mozart's high-spirited Symphony No.36. Mozart had arrived in Linz to be told that his host had organised a concert for him. A symphony was needed and, not having one in his luggage, Mozart had four days in which to write a new one! The result is a miracle of invention that gives absolutely no hint of the composer's rushed circumstances.

Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of the Faun begins the journey with its languid and lush depiction of the "desires and dreams of the faun in the heat of the afternoon". Grieg's colourful music to Peer Gynt takes the orchestra on a voyage around the world from the swift sunrise of Africa through to the dark northern Hall of the Mountain King before the afternoon is brought to a close by the famous final victory march of William Tell.

Conductor: Chen Yang
Soloists: Malcolm Stewart, Peter Luff, Vivienne Collier-Vickers, Lauren Manuel (french horns)
