Rossini - Overture: The Thieving Magpie 

Paganini - Violin Concerto No.1 

Dvorak - Symphony No.9 'New World' 

 

Rossini's opera The Thieving Magpie has a lively overture which is a Rossini faviourite and a great way to start a concert. The story centres around a magpie who fancies the silver spoon - you can guess the rest! Then we say a big "Hello" again to Jaroslav Nadrzycki, Bedford's faviourte virtuoso of the violin. This time he has chosen to treat us to his amazing performance of Paganini's equally amazing and virtuosic Violin Concerto No.1. The culmination of the concert is Dvorak's New World Symphony

Dvorak had accepted the post of Director of the New Conservatory of Music in New York and this symphony was a wonderful result of the new set-up. The symphony has everything - beautiful melodies, drama, excitment, vigour, brilliance, pathos, all put together with enormous skill and musicianship. 

Don't miss this concert!
