Spring Gala Concert – Royal Northern Sinfonia
Ripon Cathedral – Friday 17th May 2019 at 7.30 pm
Janusz Piotrowicz, conductor
Anna Douglass, horn
Weber Overture Der Freischutz
Richard Strauss Horn Concerto No 1 in E major Op 11
Beethoven Overture Leonore No 3
Brahms Symphony No 1 in C minor
We present a dazzling programme of striking contrasts: Weber’s haunting melodies and blazing fanfares, the playfulness of Strauss, Beethoven’s compelling drama, and Brahms’ richly orchestrated masterpiece of soaring melodies and passion, inexhaustible in its power to transport the listener through to its final ecstatic chorale. With the mesmerising conductor, Janusz Piotrowicz, at the helm audiences can expect ‘sheer exhilaration … a spine-tingling experience’ Music Web International ‘sublime … a profound performance, full of integrity’ The Guardian
We are proud to introduce Anna Douglass – Winner, BBC Young Musician and the Dennis Brain Horn Prize – playing the virtuosic Strauss concerto.
