Smetana        Bartered Bride Overture

Chopin        Piano Concerto No.2

Sibelius        Symphony No.2

Bringing a distinctly Romantic feel to the evening is Smetana’s exhilarating Overture to his enduring comic opera The Bartered Bride, followed by Mark Bebbington performing Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.2.  Technically taxing and richly melodic, Chopin’s masterpiece blends rippling virtuosity, Polish dance rhythms and lyricism.

One of Sibelius’ most direct and powerful compositions, the Symphony No.2 evokes the heroic vision of his native Finland, culminating in a finale of rich and passionate intensity.
