Afternoon Performance Afternoon Performance 1 - Schubert's Ninth Symphony
City Halls : Grand Hall
Leading British soloist Nicholas Daniel gives a rare performance of the beautiful Concerto for oboe and strings which Vaughan Williams composed towards the end of the Second World War. Among George Butterworth’s best-known works are his settings of poems from A.E. Housman’s A Shropshire Lad; he used one of them as the basis for this ‘rhapsody for orchestra’. Andrew Manze brings the afternoon to a stirring close with Schubert’s monumental final symphony.
