Gig Information

At last we’re able to return to live public performances now that we’re liberated from lockdown. So please
join us for this special out-of-lockdown concert.
Tony Ryan conducts a programme with a strong liberation theme, including his own most recent
composition The Lockdown March written in May this year during Alert Level 4.
Beethoven’s Incidental Music to Goethe’s play Egmont is also very much about liberation; in this case the
liberation of the Flemish people from Spanish invaders. Soprano Helen Charlton joins us for the two vocal
numbers from Beethoven’s Egmont music.
The Barber of Seville tells the story of Rosina’s liberation from the scheming clutches of her elderly
guardian Doctor Bartolo; the famous overture from Rossini’s opera opens our programme.
Two of the orchestra’s string principals, Cornelia Didenco (violin) and Janet Cubey (cello) feature in short
concertante pieces by Massenet which are also closely linked to our concert theme – the popular
Méditation from the opera Thaïs and the strikingly beautiful string orchestra prelude The Last Sleep of the
The major works on our programme are both by Schubert. His Symphony No. 6 (The Little C Major
Symphony) is a sunny, optimistic piece, while the Great Ninth Symphony lay buried among the composer’s
manuscripts, only to be liberated from obscurity in its first performance eleven years after his death. Our
concert will end with the glorious third movement from Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 in C Major (The Great).
