Strauss Duet Concertino for Clarinet and Bassoon with Royal Northern Sinfonia

Timothy Orpen is joined centre stage by fellow Royal Northern Sinfonia principals Stephen Reay bassoon and Peter Francomb horn in a programme which showcases the orchestra’s home grown talent. Directed by leader Kyra Humphreys the concert opens with Mozart Symphony No. 33 in B flat major, K. 319 for strings, oboes, horns and bassoon – the smallest orchestral forces used in his last ten symphonies.

Strauss’ playful Duet Concertino for Clarinet and Bassoon, which the composer dedicated to his friend who played bassoon in the Vienna Philharmonic, is followed by Mozart’s evergreen Concerto No.4 for Horn, famed for its memorable hunting theme and use of hunting calls in the melody. The evening ends with Tchaikovsky Suite No 4, Mozartiana, the composer’s tribute to Mozart, which was written for the 100th anniversary of Don Giovanni, a piece that made a huge impression on Tchaikovsky.

Saturday 9 April, 2016 at 7.30pm, Leeds Town Hall and then at Sage Gateshead on Sunday 24th April, 2016. 3pm
