  1. Symphony No 3, 'Sinfonia espansiva' Op 27 - Carl Nielsen
  2. Concerto for Oboe and Strings in A minor - Ralph Vaughan Williams
  3. Suite, from Der Rosenkavalier Op 59 - Richard Strauss

Nielsen’s 3rd Symphony (the ‘Espansiva’) is light and joyous – not ‘typical’ Nielsen at all. Its famous slow movement, which Nielsen himself described as a ‘landscape Andante,’ uses offstage solo voices to marvellous effect. Vaughan Williams then provides a virtuoso showpiece for principal oboist Caroline Marwood. A folk music-inspired pastorale is followed by a delicate minuet, while the finale is almost a perpetuum mobile – interrupted by some stunningly lyrical passages. The Rosenkavalier suite excerpts moments of Strauss’s greatest masterpiece, including the ‘Presentation of the rose’ scene, and the most richly textured of the opera’s several waltzes. It concludes with the powerful trio for the Marschallin, Octavian and Sophie – and by the languorous final duet. Not to be missed!
