The final concert this season will see the long-awaited return of an old friend, Martin Roscoe. He was originally booked to perform in May 2020! We will perform two of the works originally planned for that date – the Shostakovich and the Dohnanyi.
The Jazz suite is a fabulous combination of cheeky jazz tunes and Shostakovich’s deft mastery of writing tunes and orchestration; it’s great fun to listen to. Dohnanyi’s mock-serious take on a very well known children’s nursery rhyme – no prizes given for recognising it! – is also very humorous and entertaining.
We will again be joined by Leeds Festival Chorus for a performance of the wonderful Music Makers – written towards the end of Elgar’s life and quoting tunes from several other works written earlier in his long composing life.
