An afternoon concert of Romantic music, opening with the overture to Wagner's only comic opera, Die Meistersinger. Although, as this is the curtain-raiser to an opera which lasts nearly five hours, he must have had some confidence in his own sense of humour. Our next piece is the 'cello concerto by Dvorak which has long been a favourite in the repertoire. We are delighted to welcome back the soloist Liubov Ulybysheva, who has previously played with us in concertos by Beethoven and by Delius. The concert will finish with a very popular symphony, Rachmaninov's second. Many orchestra members have asked for the opportunity to perform this wonderful music and, to use a cliche, "we hope you enjoy it".
