We are venturing into some bigger works this September.
The exquisite classical architecture of the Haydn Trumpet concerto has continual conversation between the virtuosic solo Trumpet, the woodwinds and the violins, with solid under pinning of timpani and brass. The slow movement highlights the lyrical beauty of the instrument.
The Schubert movement takes us into high drama, contrasting dark passages of the low strings, short-lived pastoral woodwind themes, and the famous cello/violin theme, all cut short by full orchestral bursts of passion always contained by a Beethoven-like restraint which leaves the listener a little unsettled but wiser.
The Carmen Suite selections open the program with their familiar colour and exuberance straight out of the Opera, while the excepts from Carmina Burana should give a taste of the Byron Music Society's Big Sing of the whole of this work scheduled for December 8th in Lismore.
We hope that it is to your liking.
Tickets are available at the Mullumbimby Bookshop and at the door.
