NCO Soloists perform ‘Masterworks’
April 4, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| £7 – £18
NCO Soloists perform ‘Masterworks’: Mozart Oboe Quartet / Brahms Sextet in G Opus 36 / Beethoven String Quintet in C Opus 29.
Mozart’s sparkling Quartet, which beautifully explores the oboe’s personality, has a buoyant quality, briefly off-set by its plaintive Adagio. The Brahms’ Sextet is a real delight, featuring wonderful melodies and a gorgeous, virtuosic interplay of strings. This is the first time NCO has ever played Beethoven’s Quintet – a fascinating, mature work. The finale, nicknamed ‘the storm’, is surprisingly interrupted by an old-fashioned minuet!
Tickets: £18 / £14; £7 students; 18s & under free.
