Event Details

Donizetti may today be better-known as one of the leading composers of bel canto operas, but he also wrote a number of orchestral works, among which the Sinfonia for Winds in 1817.

In one movement, the work is stylistically similar to a bel canto opera overture in its tuneful melodies and dramatic orchestration. German-Swiss composer Joachim Raff meanwhile appears to have himself coined the term “Sinfonietta” for precisely his opus 188 written in the spring of 1873. Describing “little" or "light" symphonies, the work was very popular in its day and no doubt helped the use of the term amongst composers.

Rounding up the programme, Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for strings needs little or no introduction. Written in 1880, it’s characterized by the well-known Tchaikovskian colour, with its best-known movement most probably the second one, the Moderato-Tempo di valse. And all these…. WITHOUT A CONDUCTOR!
