Sinfonia Concertante

Tickets: £10 - £29 (concessions available)
  • Strauss
  • Haydn
  • Webern
  • Beethoven

In the enviable position of writing most of his music for musicians that he knew well, Haydn peppered his work with wonderful solos – his Sinfonia Concertante is awash in them, offering select principals of the SCO a chance to shine. Janiczek has built a fascinating programme around it, with two short piece from the 20th century; Strauss’ moonlit sextet is as expansive as Webern’s Five Pieces are tiny and dense. To close, a grand finale: the second symphony of Haydn’s own troublesome pupil.
