Classical Season 2019/20 | RNS at Home
with Pre-Concert Talk at 6.30pm
Thomas Zehetmair conductor
Steven Hudson oboe
Royal Northern Sinfonia
Sibelius Symphony No.7
Mozart Oboe Concerto
Nielsen Symphony No.1
‘Other composers mix colourful cocktails’ said Jean Sibelius. ‘I offer pure, cool water’ – and his elemental Seventh Symphony seems to draw its strength from nature itself. No false modesty for the young Carl Nielsen: he asked the orchestra to play his explosive First Symphony ‘proudly’! Royal Northern Sinfonia Conductor Laureate Thomas Zehetmair loves both these very different Scandinavian masterpieces, the two poles of a concert that revolves around the wit and energy of Mozart’s Oboe Concerto, played by RNS’ own Steven Hudson. Power, pride and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: a concert to recharge mind and spirit.
