Havant Symphony Orchestra
Conductors: Jonathan Butcher and Avi Taler

Overture Le Carnaval romain – Berlioz
The Swan of Tuonela – Sibelius
Variations on a Nursery Song – Dohnányi
Soloist: Florian Mitrea

Symphony No. 1 in D – Mahler

Nursery rhymes reinvented by classic composers! Plus the spectacle of a Roman Carnival and the mysticism of the Finnish mythological underworld.

Hungarian composer Dohnányi wrote his Variations on a Nursery Tune in 1914, but which tune is it?  Come along to hear it and find out!  You’ll also spot a famous children’s song (slightly altered!) in Mahler’s great Symphony No. 1.  A couple of blockbusters open the program: Berlioz’ sparkling Roman Carnival Overture and Sibelius’ The Swan of Tuonela, which portrays a story from Finnish folklore.

Our piano soloist for the Dohnányi is Florian Mitrea – a Romanian-born pianist who studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London and now has an international career as a concert pianist.  You will not be disappointed!
