Programme Note

The concert opens with a lesser known Mendelssohn overture: Son and Stranger. This overture begins the one-act eponymous singspiel written in 1829.

Samantha Carter, the leader of the HSO cello section, is the soloist in Saint-Saens cello concerto no.1 

Beethoven's 8th symphony looks back to an earlier period with the inclusion of a Minuet instead of the Scherzo.  There are solos for both horn and clarinet in the trio section.
