Con­cer­tos and arias

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

LOVERS of clas­si­cal mu­sic should head to Ger­rards Cross next week for an or­ches­tral per­for­mance.

The Amer­sham Fes­ti­val Cham­ber Orches­tra, con­ducted by Iain Led­ing­ham, will per­form Pi­ano Con­certo num­ber 23 in A ma­jor, Con­certo Aria Ch’io Mu Scordi Di Te and Ex­ulte Ju­bi­late, all by Mozart, and Sym­phony No 83 La Poule by Haydn.

Pi­ano Con­certo No 23 is one of the very finest and best-loved of the great se­ries of pi­ano con­cer­tos com­posed dur­ing Mozart’s years in Vi­enna.

Like many of his works in A ma­jor, it has a dis­tinc­tively ten­der and melo­di­ous character and the or­ches­tra­tion in­cludes so­los for flute, clar­inets and bas­soons.

So­prano Ali­son Priv­ett will join the orches­tra for Con­certo Aria Ch’io Mi Scordi Di Te and Ex­ul­tate Ju­bi­late.

She is a re­cent grad­u­ate of the opera course at the Royal Academy of Mu­sic, and has al­ready sung ex­ten­sively for Gars­ing­ton Opera, as well as singing last year for the Bri­tish Youth Opera.

The con­cert also in­cludes Haydn’s Sym­phony no 83 in G mi­nor, which has a cheer­ful cluck­ing melody in the first move­ment, which gave the sym­phony its nick­name of ‘the Hen’.

The con­cert takes place at St James Church in Ox­ford Road, Ger­rards Cross on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 5 at 8pm.

Tick­ets are priced at be­tween £15 and £20 and can be bought by call­ing 0333 666 3366 or on­line at www.tick­et­source. co.uk/amer­sham­fes­ti­val­of­mu­sic.
