Remembering the Fallen

Sibelius 150th Anniversary Concert

We start our season with a concert featuring local talent.

Five Young Musicians who either live in Rutland, receive their education in Rutland, or play with the Rutland Sinfonia will perform concerto movements on piano, violin, cello and trumpet. We also mark Shakespeare’s 450th birthday with two works based on his famous stage plays.

St.Peter’s Church, renowned for its superb acoustic, will again provide the ideal venue for this concert commemorating the centenary of the start of the Great War. Eduardo Vassallo will be our soloist in Elgar’s autumnal Cello Concerto and soprano Marian Porter in Vaughan Williams’ 3rd Symphony ‘Pastoral’. Butterworth lost his life in the trenches and we perform

‘A Shropshire Lad’ as a tribute to the fallen in what was

meant to be “The war to end all wars”.

In a first for the Rutland Sinfonia, we feature a concert celebrating the huge ‘blockbuster’ musicals of Broadway and the West End. Music from the all time greats including Rodgers and Hammerstein, Lloyd Webber and Rice, Bernstein and Sondheim and Schoenberg and Boublil will make this a musical evening to remember! To add that West End sparkle we have international soprano Caroline Trutz with us to sing a selection of show standards. Book early - this is likely to be a popular concert!

Our season finale will mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Jean Sibelius and we welcome back David Le Page to perform the Violin Concerto. Those who heard David perform the Tchaikovsky concerto with the Sinfonia last season will know what a stunning soloist he is. Framing the concerto will be Weber’s full blooded overture to “Der Freischütz” and the most melodic and tuneful of the symphonies by Brahms.
