Christopher McKay horn
Richard Dickins conductor
Brahms St. Anthony Variations Op.56a
Weber Horn Concertino in E minor Op.45
Beethoven Symphony No.7 in A Op.92
The Wessex Sinfonietta is one of Hampshireâ€™s leading chamber orchestras. This eveningâ€™s concert includes Weberâ€™s Horn Concertino, a virtuosic piece which includes four-part chords and explores the extremes of the instrumentâ€™s range. Christopher McKay is a former Hampshire Young Musician winner, now forging a successful professional career. The concert will open with the rich colours of Brahmsâ€™ St. Anthony Variations, a work performed too infrequently, and close with Beethovenâ€™s Symphony No.7, one of his most exhilarating works, described by Wagner as â€˜the apotheosis of the danceâ€™.
