    For our first concert of 2013 Paul Hoskins returns to conduct Richard Rodney Bennett’s 1984 work for chamber orchestra, the skilfully scored Sinfonietta. Kate Andrews joins the orchestra to perform Richard Strauss’s Oboe Concerto – one of his last works, composed during his ‘Indian Summer’ in 1945, and this is followed by Schubert’s ‘Great’ Symphony no. 9 in C major, arguably Schubert’s finest and most innovative orchestral work.

    This evening, the enhanced forces of the Corinthian Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Paul Hoskins open their performance with Wagner’s overture to his great opera Tannhäuser, followed by Strauss’s Four Last Songs – a work that has penetrated the collective psyche of many music lovers – performed by celebrated Australian-born soprano, Helena Dix. The orchestra will conclude the evening with Schoenberg, a composer who insisted that his works were evolutionary rather than revolutionary, with clear roots in the German romantic tradition. His reverent arrangement of Brahms’s G minor piano quartet will allow you to be the judge.

    This summer evening the CCO return with Paul Hoskins to its core chamber music repertoire. They open with the purity of Haydn’s final symphony, and last of the twelve so-called London Symphonies, his Symphony no. 104. Originally scored for wind and string octet and then later for nonet, tonight’s performance of Brahms’s first Serenade will be of the later version adapted by Brahms for chamber orchestra.

    Appropriately, at the age of nine, our violinist this evening, Anna-Liisa Bezrodny, entered the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. This will be a stunning performance by Anna-Liisa of Sibelius’ only concerto. Adrian Brown, a renowned interpreter of English music, will close the concert with Vaughan Williams’ lyrical reflection on English wartime stoicism and optimism, his emotional Fifth Symphony.
