University of Leicester Sinfonia (ext event)

Description: Our member Michael Sackin, who conducts the University of Leicester Sinfonia sends this announcement:

Old Favourites and Unfamiliar Gems

MENDELSSOHN Overture: Die schöne Melusine, Op.32
BRUCH Violin Concerto No. 1 in G major, Op.26
LE√ď WEINER Serenade in F minor for Small Orchestra, Op.3
SONJA GROSSNER Humoresque (version for small orchestra)
HAYDN Symphony No. 70 in D major

"This is a concert of delightful Classical and Romantic masterpieces, plus a short, quite light, work by a member of the orchestra who is a prolific composer. We welcome back Eleanor Wilkinson who has given memorable performances of various violin concertos in recent years with the Sinfonia. This time she plays Bruch’s G minor Concerto, a perennial favourite. An extremely appealing rarity will be the Serenade for Small Orchestra by the Hungarian composer Leó Weiner, and the concert ends with a wonderful, out-of-the-way Haydn symphony. The concert opens with Mendelssohn’s charming overture: The Fair Melusine."
