Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra visits Southwell Minster on Saturday 24th June at 7.30pm bringing romantic music of delicacy, richness and power.
We start with a warm and rich arrangement for string orchestra of Bruckner’s Adagio from his string quintet.
Mahler’s Ruckert Lieder sets five poems by German romantic poet Friedrich Ruckert; they are the most gentle and beautiful of all Mahler’s many song cycles. Our soloist is Australian born Helen Sherman, a young artist who studied at Manchester’s Royal Northern College of Music and is now making an international name for herself both in opera and solo recitals.
Elgar’s First Symphony reflects the composer’s times in its bold confidence, but also the composer’s doubt and search for faith in its profound and searching slow movement. Wonderful music, deeply moving!
We are supporting the children’s charity The Campbell Burns Metabolic Trust.
