Elizabeth Maconchy Music for Strings
Mozart Horn Concerto No. 4
Gavin Higgins Horn Concerto (London premiere)
Sibelius Symphony No. 5
Ben Goldscheider horn
London Chamber Orchestra
Christopher Warren-Green conductor
Superstar Ben Goldscheider joins LCO to perform two outstanding works for French horn. It’s easy to see why Mozart’s Fourth Horn Concerto is one of his most enduringly popular works: full of cheerful tunes and upbeat accompaniments, the last movement must be one of the most recognisable melodies out there.
Ben also gives the London premiere of a new horn concerto by Gavin Higgins, a former horn player himself who has won a string of awards for his Concerto Grosso for Brass Band.
The concert opens with Elizabeth Maconchy’s Music for Strings, which has it all: a warm, sombre opening, a light and wispy second movement, a big old viola solo in the third movement and an extrovert, happy-go-lucky finale.
One of the most popular symphonies of all time – Sibelius’ Fifth – concludes the programme, so sit back and let the incredible musicians of the LCO, conducted by Christopher Warren-Green, transport you to a sparse and spectacular Nordic landscape.
