Wessex Sinfonietta

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 Hampshire’s leading chamber orchestras. This evening’s concert includes Weber’s Horn Concertino, a virtuosic piece which includes four-part chords and explores the extremes of the instrument’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 Brahms’ St. Anthony Variations, a work performed too infrequently, and close with Beethoven’s Symphony No.7, one of his most exhilarating works, described by Wagner as ‘the apotheosis of the dance’.

Starts: 7 Jul '19 7:30pm

Ends: 7 Jul '19 8:30pm

Place: Winchester Cathedral
