Great, great pieces for Trinity Orchestra

Schubert: Symphony No. 9 in C major, ‘The Great’
Cecilia McDowall: Great Hills (violin: Sally Telling; flutes: Kenneth Bell and Theresa Cory)
Borodin: Symphony No. 3

Schubert’s Symphony No.9 is known as “The Great”. Deservedly so, for many see it as his finest work for orchestra. It’s a bit like Beethoven, but with more tunes, as you’d expect from a man who wrote six hundred songs.

Cecilia McDowell wrote “Great Hills” for the Shipley Arts Festival in 2007, inspired by the locality. It uses the same line-up as Bach’s 4th Brandenburg Concerto, so expect some echoes of the Baroque.

Two symphonies on the same programme? Borodin’s is a short one. He only left two incomplete movements and Glazunov, another of the great Russian composers, completed the work. The result is unmistakably Russian.

Join conductor Andrew Morley for a free pre-concert talk at 7:00 pm.
