Tea-Time Classics with the Gloucestershire Symphony Orchestra
SUNDAY TEA-TIME CLASSICS Gloucestershire Symphony Orchestra Stroud Subscription Rooms Sunday 3 March 2013 at 5.00pm. Oboe soloist - Louise Sprekelsen Schubert - Overture in the Italian Style Butterworth - Banks of Green Willow Strauss - Oboe Concerto 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 Pittsburgs 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, Schuberts response to Rossini in a wonderously lovely overture and Beethovens response to his increasing deafness in a symphony whose humour, power, joy and depth seems to have impressed and baffled his contemporaries in equal measure.
