Heidelberg Symphony Presents: Love Mozart

March 19, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

$15 – $45

In this concert, works from some of the 20th century’s most eminent composers are paired with the famous oboe concerto of Mozart. Oboist Anne Gilby, debuting with the Heidelberg Symphony, will present two works: Swedish composer Soderlundh’s Concertino complementing the sparkling concerto Mozart wrote for his friend, the famous oboist Friedrich Ramm. Two wonderful mid-century orchestral suites complete the programme. The first, by Malcolm Arnold, was drawn from his award-winning soundtrack to 1958 film The Inn of the Sixth Happiness. Full of memorable themes and ingenious combinations of textures, it has become one of the best known of his hundred-or-so movie scores. This work provides an ideal foil to the sense of colour, mystery and surprise conveyed in Britten’s beguiling orchestral suite from opera Gloriana. The suite includes a series of key scenes from the opera, which focuses on the life of Elizabeth I: The bracing Tournament music which opens the opera; the haunting Second Lute Song; the wonderfully neo-tudor Courtly Dances; and the opera’s dark epilogue – Gloriana Moritura.
