Symphony Central Coast to play live at Brentwood Village – June 20
Symphony Central Coast presents MAJESTIC ELEGANCE, an afternoon of fine classical music in one of Central Coast’s most pleasant and relaxed concert venues. From Italy to Finland, London to St Petersburg, the Central Coast’s own symphony orchestra presents a concert of elegant refinement and exquisite style, with music from Cimarosa, Glazunov, Donizetti, Delius, Wagner, Sibelius and Johann Christian Bach.
The concert opens with Domenico Cimarosa’s sparkling overture to the opera The Secret Marriage, followed by Aleksandr Glazunov’s poignant Second Serenade for orchestra. Rachel Tolmie, SCC’s Principal Oboe, performs the very charming and radiant Concertino for Cor Anglais by Gaetano Donizetti , followed by Frederick Delius’ graceful ode to the end of winter On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring. The first half concludes with Richard Wagner’s tender musical gift to his wife after the birth of their son, Siegfried Idyll.
The concert concludes with Jean Sibelius’ incidental music to the play Pelléas and Mélisande and Johann Christian Bach’s effervescent Symphony in Bb
