Description

Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19), we are continuing to review the situation with regard to our planned concerts in May and July. For the timebeing we have paused ticket sales to avoid potentially having to refund you in due course. Many apologies for the inconvenience, but in light of the developing situation, we are sure that you will understand. Please continue to refer to our website regularly for further updates.


This year, Banbury Chamber Orchestra’s annual May concert celebrates music from three masters that together bridge the Classical and Romantic musical periods.


Beethoven: Coriolan Overture
Mozart: Sinfonia Concertante for four winds and orchestra
Schubert: Symphony No.6


Beethoven’s turbulent Coriolan Overture was written in 1807 for von Collin’s tragedy ‘Coriolan’. The striking chords that open the work lead us immediately into the story of the semi-legendary Roman general, tormented by his decision to lead an army of Rome’s former enemies against his countrymen.

An altogether lighter note is struck in the Sinfonia Concertante for Four Winds and Orchestra, generally – although not definitively – attributed to Mozart. This delightful three-movement work makes full use of the four solo instruments, individually and in entertaining combination.

The four soloists are drawn from the orchestra itself (Christine Griggs – Oboe, Jane Cerasale – Clarinet, Helen Newing – French Horn, and Ian McCubbin – Bassoon).

After a short interval we will conclude the concert with Schubert’s charming Symphony No 6, written in late 1817. The symphony’s nickname (the ‘Little C Major’) distinguishes it from Schubert’s later Ninth Symphony (the so-called ‘Great C Major’), with the Sixth Symphony being of smaller ‘classical’ proportions.
