Sinfonia of Birmingham & Amy Dickson (saxophone) – Sunday 30 April
April 30th at 7:30pm£16 – £26
Sinfonia of Birmingham | Michael Seal conductor | Amy Dickson saxophone
Tchaikovsky Romeo & Juliet – Fantasy Overture
Glazunov Saxophone Concerto in E flat Op 109
Rachmaninov Symphony No 2 in E minor Op 27
The Sinfonia of Birmingham returns with Associate CBSO conductor Michael Seal, following a sell-out concert in last year’s Festival.
This is a mighty programme, taking full advantage of the opportunity of having a symphony orchestra. Tchaikovsky’s symphonic poem, completed in 1880, sets the scene for an evening of unabashed romanticism culminating in Rachmaninov’s glorious Second Symphony (1907).
In the midst of these two famous and much-loved works sits Glazunov’s beautiful Saxophone Concerto – his last completed work, and an absolute gem for the instrument. British-Australian saxophonist Amy Dickson comes to Leamington for the first time. Twice nominated for a Grammy™ award, Amy has been hailed by BBC Music Magazine as one of the world’s six best classical saxophonists ever.
