Programme Note

The first of two concerts with an Italian theme. Elgar’s In the South bears the subtitle “Alassio”, after a holiday in the town, and Respighi brings the second of his three pictures of Rome, while Puccini’s Intermezzo serves as a prelude to our Italian Opera Gala in July. The Double Bass isn’t often heard as a solo instrument, but virtuoso player Marcel Becker, joined by violinist Mihkel Kerem, here demonstrates just how it can be played!
