The Spring concert of the Langtree Sinfonia will be held in St Mary’s Church, on Saturday 13 May, at 7.30pm and promises to be an intriguing evening.
The concert has three works. Mendelssohn’s overture `The Fair Melusine’ and Beethoven’s grandiose Seventh Symphony. These will frame the unusual combination of Ukelele and orchestra in a concertante work by Lindsey Higgs.
The Beethoven Symphony is an orchestral standard and quite well known, the Mendelssohn less so and is a most poetic evocation of the Undine legend, a fairy tale Mendelssohn portrays with his usual consummate skill.
But the combination of the Ukelele and orchestra remains rare and Lindsey Higgs’s work is a good opportunity to hear this combination!
As usual, Paul Cox conducts.
