Afternoon Performance Afternoon Performance 6 - Britten and Dvorak
City Halls : Grand Hall
As part of the Britten 100 celebrations, Joshua Weilerstein conducts the Simple Symphony and the composer’s Movements for a Clarinet Concerto, inspired by the playing of American clarinettist Benny Goodman, but never completed. In 2007 Colin Matthews edited the available material and added additional movements constructed from two contemporary pieces written by Britten. The programme also includes Golijov’s tribute to fellow Argentinian composer ÁstorPiazzolla while Dvo?ák’s darkly passionate Seventh Symphony brings the concert and the series to a stirring close.
