Winchester Orchestra's Music Director, Michael DiGiacinto presents:
Franz Schubert Unfinished Symphony with Guest Conductor Henry Mollicone
"It opens with...music that sounds like a revenant of a dream. A pianissimo shadow in the cellos and basses...functions as an...introduction to another musical spectre...an embodiment of melancholy in the oboe and clarinet over a nervous shimmer...in the strings. Schubert's orchestration signals a different spiritual dimension to this music as well..." Tom Service

Ludwig Beethoven: Coriolan Overture
"...a powerful portrayal of the tragedy of a Roman general...in the... gentler music...represents his wife's pleadings for peace, the impression of a conversation...is palpable....the slowing down at the end, the exaggeration of the pauses between the final, soft chords plucked by the strings, seem...natural as a representation of the death of the hero." Rob W McKenzie

Richard Wagner: Rienzi Overture
"...enormously popular... rollicking overture...conveys the power and excitement that the young Wagner intended." Blair Anderson

Edvard Grieg: Lyric Suite
"easy fluency and melodic freshness that characterise so much of Grieg's finest music" Andrew Clements

SEATING: Open. Doors open 30 minutes prior.
