    In May we welcome back Michael Seal, who will conduct a programme of music from around the turn of the twentieth century. We begin with Debussy's remarkable Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune; we then accompany soprano Susan Young in songs from “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” by Mahler. The “Wunderhorn” theme ends the concert as we play Mahler's delicate and affecting Fourth Symphony, which draws on these songs for much of its inspiration.

    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”.
