Overture Le Carnaval romain – Berlioz

The Swan of Tuonela – Sibelius

Variations on a Nursery Song – Dohnányi
Soloist: Florian Mitrea (pictured)

Symphony No. 1 in D – Mahler

Oaklands School Hall 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 programme: 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!
