HCO contrast the flamboyance of Don Giovanni and a virtuoso Russian cellist with
the dignified elegance of Haydn’s |
Russian cellist Mikhail Lezdkan is well known in Hampshire as a
soloist and chamber musician working frequently with many local musicians
including (among many others) our own Cathy Mathews and Robert Blanken.
Mikhail will play for us some Russian masterpieces: Tchaikovsky’s virtuosic
Variations on a Rococo Theme and a couple of bonus pieces,
Andante Cantabile by the same composer and Glazunov’s
HCO open the concert with the flamboyant Overture
Don Giovanni by Mozart.
Bring your young musicians along to this especially if they are doing GCSE music.
We will be playing the Symphony No. 101 by Haydn, nicknamed
which is a set work on some GCSE syllabuses. It’s also a fabulous, fun piece of music!
