Programme Note

We bring a programme full of variety to our home in Manchester, The Stoller Hall, for our first concert there in 2019. Opening the concert, the sparkling Petite symphonie of Gounod for nine wind players will delight everyone, not least the string players who get a rare piece off! Martin Roscoe, our Vice-President, plays Schumann’s Piano Concerto, a mighty work which the composer himself described as ‘a compromise between a symphony, a concerto and a huge sonata’. The second half begins with a work from a relatively little known Polish composer, Grazyna Bacewicz, the masterpiece of neo-classicism, her Concerto for Strings. To close the concert we are delighted to be playing a work which at around 19 minutes, may be one of Mozart’s shortest symphonies, but the ‘Haffner’ is so brim-full of tunes, wit and energy that no one could possibly feel shortchanged.

Martin Roscoe, piano
