A Major Evening

Thursday 26 September 2019, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

- £15 – £35
A Major Evening

Beethoven Coriolan Overture , Op. 72
Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, K. 622
Mozart Tamino’s Aria: Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schön (from The Magic Flute)
Beethoven Symphony no. 7 in A, Op. 92

Conductor George Jackson
Clarinet James Meldrum
Tenor John Findon






The London Firebird Orchestra’s 2019/20 Season opens with Beethoven’s mighty Coriolan Overture – inspired by the exiled Roman general Coriolanus’s quest to invade Rome with an army of enemies whilst struggling emotionally with his mother’s pleas against the plan. This is beautifully contrasted by Mozart’s charming Clarinet Concerto in A Major for which we are joined by James Meldrum as soloist. John Findon, whose recent credits include ENO and Glyndebourne, will sing Tamino’s Aria from ‘The Magic Flute’ before the concert’s theme of A Major continues with Beethoven’s ever-popular Symphony no. 7.

“George Jackson conducted the full ENO orchestra in a magnificent account of the score, sparkling with playful humour in the dialogues and exultantly romantic in the interludes.”
