  1. Serenade for Strings in E minor Op 20 - Sir Edward Elgar
  2. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 27 in B flat K 595 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  3. Introduction and Allegro for strings Op 47 - Sir Edward Elgar
  4. Symphony No 31 in D, 'Paris' K 297 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

A perfect successor to Eine kleine Nachtmusik, Elgar’s Serenade for Strings is also the perfect complement to the earlier composer’s lucid way with orchestration. Add in some woodwind and you also have the perfect backing for Peter Donohoe’s thoughtful interpretation of this, Mozart’s last – somewhat melancholic – piano concerto (its first performance being the composer’s last public appearance). But then mix in some clarinets, trumpets and timpani and we have the twenty-two-year-old Mozart at his most vigorous – as is Elgar’s stirring Introduction and Allegro for string quartet and string orchestra: again glancing backwards to become one of the greatest concerto grossos ever composed.

Pre-concert talk: 6.30pm
