Spring 2019 Concert

Saturday 16th March 2018 at 7.30pm

At Eton College School Hall

DVOŘÀK - Cello Concerto
STRAUSS - An Alpine Symphony

Cello: Akito Goto (WMSO Young Musician 2012)

Our gala concert showcases a much-loved concerto and a rarely-performed orchestral extravaganza. But what links Dvořák's lyrical cello concerto and its private grief for a sister-in-law with An Alpine Symphony's epic concept and form? The answer is a love of homeland: the folk melody of Dvořák and the depiction of a majestic and beautiful mountain landscape by Strauss both rely on their composers' love for and evocation of place; a reminder of how significant places are in our lives.

Tickets: £15 (gallery), £12.50 (main hall), £5.00 (student/child)
