Haydn Symphony No.92 in G major ‘Oxford’
Join Royal Northern Sinfonia and soloists in Hovingham Hall for the final gala concert of Ryedale festival.
The poignant strains of Purcell’s great Chacony introduces two works featuring wind soloists. Finzi’s Clarinet Concerto marries baroque influences, folk-inspired melody and Elgarian echoes. Roxanna Panufnik chose a bassoon for a piece inspired by an old Rye legend of doomed love between a monk and a local girl, heard here in the world premiere of a new orchestral version. The concert culminates with a lively, lyrical symphony Haydn presented in honour of the city of Oxford.
