National Symphony Orchestra 2021
Mozart Overture, The Marriage of Figaro, K492
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.5 – ‘Emperor’
Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings, Op.48
It’s a night of classics for our second concert of the season. Mozart’s most popular overture – just 5 minutes in length but bouncing with 18th century comical verve and excitement – opens the show, followed by one of the most popular concertos in the repertoire, Beethoven’s glorious Emperor, originally dedicated to Napoleon and among the most noble and uplifting pieces of the 19th century….the 2nd and 3rd movements in particular are among the most played on classical radio stations across the globe. And finally, rivalled only by Elgar’s serenade for the same forces, Tchaikovsky’s 30-minute Serenade for Strings rounds off the evening in traditional Russian style, full of melody, emotion and passion.
