Orchestra of the Swan
Tchaikovsky Andante Cantabile (from String Quartet, Op. 11)
Mendelssohn Concert Pieces Op 113 & 114 for Two Clarinets
Mendelssohn String Symphony No.7 in D minor
Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings Orchestra
An evening with two extremely effective works by Mendelssohn, one which celebrates the unique sound and performance technique of the clarinet family and the other which marks Mendelssohn’s transition into the world of mature Symphonic composition. The concert starts with the melancholic Andante cantabile of the String Quartet No.1 in D major, a famous movement in its own right; one of the late Romantic era’s definitive compositions is the perfect ending.
Orchestra of the Swan are joined by soloists Sally Harrop and Luan Shaw.
Conducted by Jason Lai.
Ticket holders are invited to join Orchestra of the Swan for a pre-concert talk at 6.45pm.
