Description

Banbury Symphony Orchestra presents their Summer Nights Concert.

On Saturday 29th June, we will be playing three pieces at St Mary's Church in Banbury.

  • Walton: Scapino overture
  • Bruch: Violin concerto No 1 with soloist Maria Kouznetsova
  • Rimsky-Korsakov: Sheherazade

PROGRAMME NOTES

William Walton’s comedy overture Scapino received its premiere in 1941, performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra who had commissioned the work for its 50th anniversary. The overture depicts a character somewhere in nature between Leporello and Till Eulenspiegel, a meddling fixer of amorous adventures!

Next we welcome back the wonderful Maria Kouznetsova as our soloist in the evergreen Bruch Violin Concerto No 1. It was a rare privilege to hear Maria play the Sibelius violin concerto with us last Summer – don’t miss this treat!

After the interval we will play Rimsky-Korsakov’s symphonic suite Scheherazade, that wonderful and dazzlingly-written evocation of the Arabian Nights story.
