Cel­e­brate orches­tra’s 31st season

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

EN­JOY an evening with the German Mas­ters when the Hillingdon Phil­har­monic Orches­tra per­form a se­lec­tion of their favourites to mark their 31st season.

The con­cert will be­gin with Schu­mann’s Man­fred Over­ture, one of the com­poser’s most imag­i­na­tive and well-loved works in­spired by the poem of the same name by Lord By­ron. We­ber’s Clar­inet Con­certo No.2 in E-flat ma­jor will fol­low and se­duce lis­ten­ers with its lyri­cal melodies and daz­zling vir­tu­osic ef­fects. For this the Orches­tra will be joined by soloist Joseph Shiner, an ac­claimed clar­inet­tist and re­cip­i­ent of nu­mer­ous prizes who was re­cently fea­tured as a BBC Mu­sic Mag­a­zine ‘Ris­ing Star’ in their Great artists of to­mor­row se­ries.

The con­cert will con­clude with Brahms’ Sym­phony No.1 in C mi­nor, the com­poser’s epic an­swer to Beethoven that won­der­fully il­lus­trates his skill at mag­i­cally blend­ing ro­man­tic pas­sion with clas­si­cal dis­ci­pline. Highly dra­matic and ex­pres­sive this work prom­ises to pro­vide a grand fi­nale to this cel­e­bra­tion of German com­posers.

The HPO was formed in 1985 and is now well es­tab­lished in the area with over 60 reg­is­tered mem­bers.

‘An evening with the German Mas­ters’ will be led by Macken­zie Richards and con­ducted by founder of the Orches­tra, Peter J Wil­liams.

The con­cert takes place on Satur­day Oc­to­ber 8 at 7.30pm at St Paul’s Church, Ruis­lip Manor.

Tick­ets are £12 (concs £10, chil­dren 11-16 £5, un­der 11 FOC) from Pro Mu­sic In­ter­na­tional, 19 Swake­leys Road, Ick­en­ham or Tel. 01895 674223. Tick­ets also avail­able on the door.
