Music in Flight on Wednesday 13 May 2020, 7.30pm at Cadogan Hall, London (Sloane Terrace, London, SW1X 9DQ).

Opening the concert is Finlandia, Sibelius’ bold statement on a Finnish national identity that offers a glimpse of the soul of a nation and an urge to escape Russian oppression. His Symphony No.5 further explores the composer’s admiration for the natural beauty of his homeland, creating a tangible sense of awe from the opening statement from the brass to the staggered cadence of the exultant finale.

Also featuring in the programme is Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, an eight-movement setting of British poems that includes works by Alfred Tennyson, William Blake and John Keats, and is framed by haunting solos from the French horn. Modern Italian composer Nino Rota’s Trombone Concerto is a lively journey in three movements demonstrating the range of the instrument, moving from eccentric rhythms and bursts of energy to measured, lyrical passages and back again.

This concert is preceded by an RPO Prelude at 6.15PM.
