This concert consists of four brief and delightfully contrasting works. Humperdinck's tuneful overture to Hansel and Gretel gives way to Richard Strauss' charming chamber serenade for thirteen wind instruments and Glazunov's scintillating violin concerto (starring previous Young Musician of the Year violin winner Callum Smart). Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances (a very late work) winds up the evening in sardonic, sensual style.
