Forged in Sheffield: Symphonic Poetry

11/11/2017

Time: 7:30pm In the first of the year’s orchestral concerts, the University’s very own Symphony Orchestra returns to the stage with a sumptuous programme, full of all the twists and turns, and highs and lows you can expect from orchestral repertoire. Mendelssohn’s exhilarating Hebrides Overture will transport you to a distant Scottish rock with swirling mists and rolling seas aplenty. Dvorak’s The Noon Witchand Debussy’s Trois Nocturnes provide the rich and melancholic tapestry on which the contemporary sound worlds of Sheffield-born Bernard Rands’ Tre canzoni and Malcolm Arnold’s flute concerto rest.
