concert on Sunday

25th September 2010

Dear all,
This may be of interest to music lovers:

An evening of orchestral music featuring two special concerti by
father-and-son Swiss composers, Arturo and Salomon Cuéllar. The concert
opens with Bach’s Overture gloriously scored for 3 trumpets and string
orchestra followed by Salomon’s Concerto Olimpico, played by our special
guest, the principal trumpeter of Luzern Symphony Orchestra, Philipp
Hutter. Schulhoff’s Sextet and its colourful chromaticsm and melodic
lyricism ends… the first half before the Russian Virtuosi returns with
Arturo Cuellar’s flamboyant and heart-thumping Piano Concerto no.2.
Pianist Mei Yi Foo takes centre stage in the second half of this concert
playing both the Cuéllar and Shostakovich Concerti. Shostakovich’s
satirical wit is evident in this fiery work consisting of four contrasting
movements; a work that calls forth humorous banter and interjections
between two soloists and orchestra. An unmissable evening!

J.S. Bach Orchestral Suite No.3 in D BWV 1068 Overture
Salomon Cuéllar Concerto for Trumpet and String Orchestra
E. Schulhoff String Sextet
