Oaklands School Hall
Oaklands School Hall
Nursery rhymes reinvented by classic composers!  Plus the spectacle of a Roman Carnival and the mysticism of the Finnish mythological underworld.

Hungarian composer Dohnányi wrote his Variations on a Nursery Tune in 1914, but which tune is it?  Come along to hear it and find out!  You’ll also spot a famous children’s song (slightly altered!) in Mahler’s great Symphony No. 1.  A couple of blockbusters open the programme: Berlioz’ sparkling Roman Carnival Overture and Sibelius’ The Swan of Tuonela, which portrays a story from Finnish folklore. 

Our piano soloist for the Dohnányi is Florian Mitrea – a Romanian-born pianist who studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London and now has an international career as a concert pianist.  You will not be disappointed!
