A Musical Travelogue
From melodies as old as time, to more contemporary masterworks: distant worlds collide. Under the baton of Douglas Boyd, tradition and innovation are intertwined in our first Music on Sundays concert for 2024. Harry Sdraulig’s Torrent is a fanfare tense with the chaos of the modern age, while the longing second movement of Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante is a glimpse into a bygone era of classical elegance performed by soloists from within our Orchestra. New frontiers abound in Dvořák's Symphony No. 9, which brims with the adventure of the composer’s years in America. Across the globe, Grace Williams’ Penillion is a lush reminiscence on Welsh traditions, as honeyed brass sing soaring folk melodies. Borodin’s soul stirring Polovtsian Dances, rich with an ancient folk tradition, drives to an exhilarating finish.
