    We begin our 14-15 season with a varied programme of works by twentieth century composers, under conductor Mike Seal, who makes his debut with CCO. Mahler's beautifully moving and prophetic Kindertotenlieder provide the centrepiece of the concert, sung by mezzo soprano, Marta Fontanals-Simmons. Either side are Berio's Rendering, brilliant reworking of the fragments of Schubert's D major symphony, and Shostakovich's exuberant Ninth Symphony.

    The contrasting musical traditions of classical Vienna and inter-war Berlin are brought together in the closing concert of the 2013-2014 season. We begin with Schubert's enigmatic and unfinished Eighth Symphony. Weill's rarely performed Second Symphony is an absolute gem of a work which conveys all the spirit of his more familiar theatrical output in a symphonic form.

    Our May visit to the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall features three contrasting symphonic works from the first half of the twentieth century.  Elgar's concert Overture, In the South (Alassio), was inspired by his time on the Italian Riviera, and brilliantly captures the rich landscape and history of that area. Talented young pianist Chris Hopkins joins us for Rachmaninov’s witty Variations on a Theme of Paganini. Shostakovich’s mighty Fifth Symphony, written just three years after Rachmaninov’s Variations, has been delighting audiences ever since it received a rapturous reception at its premiere in 1937.

    Our March concert brings together masterpieces from the core classical and romantic repertoire. Brahms's magnificent four movement Second Piano Concerto is performed by exciting young British pianist Nathan Williamson. Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony is cheerful and light-hearted in style, and while it is a work that has tended to nestle in the shadows of the Seventh and Ninth symphonies, Beethoven clearly rated the work and believed it to be better than the Seventh. Mozart's Overture to The Marriage of Figaro provides a lively opener to the concert.

    CCO marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Richard Strauss with his charming Duet Concertino for Bassoon and Clarinet in our first concert in 2014. The performance opens with Stephen McNeff's short, lyrical work Sinfonia. This peice was inspired by the symphonies of William Boyce and was composed during McNeff’s recent residency with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Two works by Sibelius - the melancholic Valse Triste and his inspiring Third Symphony - conclude the programme.
