University Sinfonia Concert

Jean Sibelius – Karelia Overture
Felix Mendelssohn – Bartholdy Violin Concerto
Franz Schubert – Mass no.2
Edward Elgar – Sérénade Lyrique
Arturo Márquez – Danzon no. 2

Violinist – Victoria Hutchinson

Sinfonia’s spring concert invites listeners to join them on a discovery of Romantic masterpieces. Exploring works from Finland, Germany, Austria and England, Sinfonia showcases some of the musical highlights of the 19th century, featuring Mendelssohn’s virtuosic Violin Concerto and an enchanting performance of Schubert’s Mass no 2. In complete contrast, the finale, Marquez’s Danzon no. 2, will give the audience a flavour of the contemporary composer, whisking them away for an invigorating taste of Mexico, leaving them tantalised, energised and revitalised.

University Choir and Philharmonia concert

The University Choir and Philharmonia join forces for a programme by 20th-century English composers inspired by the sea. Ralph Vaughan Williams’s first symphony is a tour-de-force for orchestra and large chorus that sets verses from Walt Whitman’s poems Leaves of Grass and Passage to India which convey the power and vastness of the ocean. The concert opens with Britten’s wonderfully evocative ‘Sea Interludes’ from Peter Grimes.
