Michael Seal also conducts our final concert of the season, in which we pay a first visit to the beautiful and famously musical church of St Martin-in-the-Fields. Following a slightly cheeky programming decision, the orchestra plays a series of “fifths” - Schubert's charming 5th symphony, Mozart's wonderfully witty 5th violin concerto with exciting young violinist Callum Smart, and Beethoven's epoch-making 5th symphony. In the midst of the “fifths” comes a new commission from Adrian Sutton, composer of the music for the National Theatre production of “War Horse”.
