Ensemble East at St Peter Mancroft, 7pm on Saturday 30 July 2022

I

Ensemble East is coming to Norwich
The Chamber Orchestra will be making its debut performance in Norwich on Saturday 30th July at the church of St. Peter Mancroft.

The programme includes the highly talented horn player Lynne Roberts and rays of Italian sunshine from Mendelssohn’s Symphony No.4.

Beethoven Coriolan Overture Op 62
Richard Strauss Horn Concerto No. 1
Mendelssohn Symphony No.4 “Italian”

Lynne Roberts –  Horn
Philip Hesketh – Conductor

Beethoven Coriolan Overture Op 62
Briefly, Coriolanus is resolved to make war on Rome (in C minor), his Mum pleads for him not to (in E flat major), he resolves not to, but it’s too late, so he kills himself! Rather fatuous plot …. But fabulous music.
Strauss Horn Concerto no 1
This, well known, concerto will be performed by our own principal horn, Lynne Roberts. Strauss grew up in a house full of horn music as his father was a well-known virtuoso; this work shows a true understanding of the heroic nature of the instrument that is a joy to hear.
Mendelssohn Symphony No.4 “Italian”
The Italian symphony is, in effect, a musical postcard home from Italy from the young Mendelssohn The buoyant and optimistic mood within which the work immediately begins bears all the hallmarks of a happy young man, eager to make his mark on the world and express his travels through music.
We hope you will be able to join us. Tickets from Ticketsource here or on the door.
