After careful consideration and with great sadness, we have taken the decision to cancel all our spring concerts due to the developing situation with the COVID-19 outbreak.
We are delighted to continue our partnership with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and we welcome to the podium former RSNO Assistant Conductor Christian Kluxen, now Music Director of the Victoria Symphony in Canada and Chief Conductor of the Arctic Philharmonic in Norway.
The orchestra performs Stravinsky’s Petrushka. The sensational sequel to The Firebird, Stravinsky’s ballet about the lovestruck puppet Petrushka astonished audiences in Paris in 1911, and over 100 years later, its orchestral colours shine just as bright.
In the second half, we perform Sibelius’s Symphony No. 2. While not explicitly programmatic, the symphony was popularly dubbed the ‘Symphony of Independence’, due to its rousing finale and composition at a time of Russian sanctions on Finnish language and culture. At its premiere a critic remarked that this work was ‘one of the few symphonic creations of our time that point in the same direction as Beethoven’s symphonies’.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for NYOS Symphony Orchestra Spring Concert - CANCELLED are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
