5821925Liverpool Mozart Orchestra: Drum Roll
DateSaturday 18th May 2019
DescriptionConductors: Andrew Casey, Mark Edwards Soprano: Louise Dickinson Oboe: Michael Shennan Mozart - Overture to Don Giovanni Mozart - Exultate Jubilate Wendy Dickinson - New Work Albinoni - Oboe Concerto in G minor Op.9 No.8 Haydn - Symphony No.103 "Drum Roll" Drum Roll please - introducing not one but two soloists from the LMO, a new work from a member of the LMO and all conducted by two young conductors from the RNCM, Andrew Casey and Mark Edwards. Mozart's ominous overture to Don Giovanni will be followed by his joyous Exultate Jubilate sung by Louise Dickinson. Next comes the premiere of a new work from LMO violinist Wendy Dickinson dedicated to the memory of LMO's much-missed colleague John Cook, member and Treasurer of the orchestra for over 40 years. Principal oboist, Michael Shennan, will then perform one of Albinoni's many oboe concertos. Op.9 No.8 might not be his most famous one but we think it's his best! And to bring this aptly named concert to an end, Haydn's penultimate symphony, No.103, known as the "Drum Roll" because of the opening roll on the timpani, is choc full of Haydn's normal liveliness and melodic invention. Pre-concert talk - 6:45pm
