Concert at Victoria Hall


7.30pm, Thursday 27 September 2012

Victoria Hall, Kirkgate, Settle BD24 9DZ

The Northern Chamber Orchestra

Nicholas Ward, violin

‘Turkish’ & Other Delights

Rossini String Sonata no.1 in G major

Mozart Violin Concerto no. 5 in A major ‘Turkish’

Bartók Rumanian Folk Dances

Schubert Symphony no. 5 in B flat major

Enjoy a kaleidoscopic, musical adventure with the NCO, one of the country’s finest chamber orchestras.  Rossini’s String Sonata shows off his gift for melody and exceptional virtuosity, while Mozart’s Violin Concerto no. 5 features the famous delight – the ‘Turkish’ episode.  The concert continues its journey, deep into Europe, with Bartók’s dramatic Rumanian Folk Dances.  Schubert’s sparkling Symphony no.5 glides majestically from the serene early passages, to the dramatic minuet, with its dreamy middle section in the style of a Viennese country dance (which became ‘the waltz’) – making this one of the most accessible masterpieces of all time.
