    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.

    The fairy-tale magic of Hansel and Gretel, so brilliantly captured in Humperdinck's Overture, provides an appropriately seasonal opening to our Christmas concert. Anna-Liisa Bezrodny, who captivated audiences with her stunning performance of Sibelius’s Concerto with CCO in 2012, makes an eagerly anticipated return, performing Tchaikovsky's virtuosic Concerto. Dvorák’s ever popular Ninth Symphony, with its ingenious reflections of the composer's time in the New World, will guarantee to bring the concert to a rousing close.
