Gloucestershire Symphony Orchestra
Schubert - Overture in the Italian Style Butterworth - Banks of Green Willow Strauss - Oboe Concerto Oboe soloist - Louise Sprekelsen Vaughan Williams - Fantasia on Greensleeves Beethoven - Symphony No. 2 in D Inspired by a chance meeting with an American GI, who was principal oboist in Pittsburg’s orchestra, Strauss’ late oboe concerto combines gentleness and wit and offers the soloist countless beguiling melodies. It is flanked by two enchanting pastoral works, based on English folksong. The concert begins and ends with two Viennese classics, Schubert’s response to Rossini in a ‘wonderously lovely overture’ and Beethoven’s response to his increasing deafness in a symphony whose humour, power, joy and depth seem to have impressed and baffled his contemporaries in equal measure.
