Programme Note

An exciting opening concert of the season, celebrating both Brian Wright’s 70th birthday and his 25 years as conductor of MSO. Dvořák’s sparkling overture is matched by the extrovert brilliance of Shostakovich’s concerto. Our soloist is the young, prizewinning Russian pianist, Alexander Panfilov. On the title page of Berlioz’s supremely passionate and autobiographical Symphonie Fantastique, which includes the famous “March to the Scaffold”, the composer quoted from Victor Hugo: “all I have loved, all I have suffered, all I have attempted”.
