The musicians of the Firebird Orchestra are joined by the pianist Harris Tsz-Chun Leung in Mozart’s beautiful piano concerto ‘Jeunehomme’, and soprano Elizabeth Karani in Mozart’s concert aria ‘A Berenice’. The spotlight falls on the string players for Ruth Gipp’s 1952 short tone poem on Cringlemire Gardens in the Lake District, and the concert culminates in Haydn’s dramatic and colourful Symphony No. 59, nicknamed ‘Fire’ from the unusual ‘Presto’ marking of its first movement.
The performance will last approximately 2hrs, including an interval.
