Programme Jan 2007Wagner Overture from 'Rienzi'

Arnold Little Suite No. 1

Haydn Trumpet Concerto
    soloist: Matthew Fletcher

RachmaninovSymphony No. 2

Rachmaninov’s great symphony has a gloriously rich sound of broad tunes, with passionate declamation. Wagner’s early opera celebrated the life of 14th century Roman populist leader Rienzi on the grandest scale. By contrast, Haydn offers a joyful and radiant concerto.
