  1. Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune - Claude Debussy
  2. Concerto for oboe and symphony orchestra, 'Legacy' - Oscar Navarro
  3. Scheherazade Op 35 - Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov

Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun sparked a musical revolution. Telling the tale of a mythical faun who, enchanted by nymphs, drifts off to sleep to have wondrous dreams, the heat of a summer’s afternoon in the forest is evoked through beautiful melodies and lush harmonies. The orchestra will then be joined by oboist Ewan Millar, 2018 winner of the Reading Symphony Orchestra / Hickies Young Musicians’ Competition, for Navarro’s ‘Legacy’ Concerto. Ewan, a student at Reading School, is a phenomenal player and principal oboe with the Berkshire Youth Symphony Orchestra and the National Youth Wind Ensemble of Great Britain. The second half of the concert will feature Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade – an exhilarating journey of love, intrigue and adventure based on tales from the Arabian Nights. Depicted by a solo violin, Princess Scheherazade saves her life by captivating the Sultan with stories of Sinbad and other tales. A perfect concert for a summer’s evening!
