Overture:Der Freishutz

Violin Concerto in E minor Op.64

Symphony No.3 in E minor Op.98

Considered to be the first important German Romantic opera, Weber's Der Freishutz includes a thrilling Overture which contains some of the opera's great melodies and symphonic twists.

Joining the Orchestra will be an artist with "a truly spectacular technique" (Manchester Evening News) Leticia Moreno. Audiences will be able to hear her perform Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, one of the foremost violin concerto of the Romantic Era, which is full of warmth and vitality.

Brahms' majestic Symphony No.4 opens in a dramatic vein and continues to flow with an urgency and lyrical beauty. It's comfortingly family melodies and melancholy tone is a beautiful way to open this 2016-2017 season.
