Havant Chamber Orchestra

A gentle wind blows! Our own clarinet and bassoon duo delight us with Strauss.

Pavane – Fauré
Masques et Bergamasques – Fauré
Duet Concertino for Clarinet, Bassoon, Strings and Harp – Richard Strauss
Sospiri – Elgar
Symphony No. 5 in B♭ – Schubert

Soloists: Robert Blanken, Richard Moore

We are very excited to explore some more of the music of Richard Strauss and in the Duet Concertino, his last completed composition, we proudly feature our own clarinet and bassoon duo, Robert Blanken and Richard Moore.

We surround it with the gentleness of works by Faure and Elgar, beginning the concert with Faure’s two beautiful pieces, the Pavane and the Suite ‘Masques et Bergamasques’. The second half begins with the deep sigh of Elgar’s Sospiri – a heartfelt short piece for strings and harp.

Then, to complete the programme, we take a trip back about one hundred years for the lightest of Schubert’s symphonies, number 5 in B flat. The symphony is something of an homage to Mozart and it took Schubert just about one month, in September 1816, to produce this incredibly elegant and melodious work.

6.30pm–7.00pm: Pre-concert talk in the auditorium 7.00pm–7.20pm: Pre-concert interlude in the Octagon Lounge by local music pupils.
